Sennheiser and Apogee Partner to Offer MK 4 Digital Mic for USB and iOS Devices

Sennheiser has announced the new digital version of its MK 4, one of the audio specialist’s most popular recording mics. With professional level Apogee A/D conversion and mic preamp technology, the MK 4 digital connects directly to iOS devices, Mac and PC computers.

Sennheiser said the large-diaphragm MK 4 digital is the ideal partner for any mobile recording task requiring high sound quality with the typical warmth and detail of a true condenser microphone.

“I am delighted to announce the latest product to be born from our cooperation with A/D conversion experts Apogee Electronics,” said Wolfgang Fraissinet, director audio recording at Sennheiser. “The MK 4 digital true condenser studio microphone will bring full, detailed sound and ‘made in Germany’ quality to recordings on iOS devices, Macs and PCs.”

Ideal for high-quality speech applications from voice-overs to podcasts, the MK4 digital extends a partnership between Sennheiser and Apogee that already includes the HandMic Digital, the ClipMic and the MKE 2 Digital mic.

“The MK 4 digital combines the best of Sennheiser and Apogee technology to offer customers from across the audio and video production spectrum incredible tools for mobile recording,” said Betty Bennett, co-founder and CEO of Apogee Electronics.

The MK 4 digital mic is delivered with a USB cable and a Lightning iOS cable for connecting to iPad, iPhone or iPod touch as well as a microphone clamp and a pouch.

The microphone can be used with common media production programs such as Logic Pro X, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere, Pro Tools or Ableton Live and iOS recording apps such as GarageBand and Apogee MetaRecorder.

The MK 4 digital will become available from summer 2016. No price was given.
