Sennheiser MD431-II is a dynamic, supercardioid stage vocal mic – part of the Classic Series.

When you first grab a 431, you’ll realise it’s ‘not your average microphone’.

The ‘retro-futuristic’ styling really hasn’t changed since its first inception, and neither has the performance. MD431 looks heavier than it actually is – and at just 230g, we’re calling this a ‘lightweight’ handheld vocal microphone.

The supercardioid pattern is tight, and suitable for loud stages.

But what does MD431 actually sound like?
Compared with a stack of other stage vocal micorphones, the 431 output is slightly lower, but once you give the gain knob a little crank on your mixing console, you’ll be rewarded by one of the smoothest sounding microphones available. Frequency range is advertised at 40 – 18,000 Hz, and although there’s a pleasing little lift in the top end, an MD431 really does give a ‘full frequency’ sound, with plenty of detail.

What’s with the switch?
You can lock it permanently to the ‘ON’ position if you want. Otherwise, you’ve got hands-down the best DJ or MC microphone ever manufactured.

  • Exceptionally good feedback rejection
  • Shock mounted capsule provides very good rejection of handling noise
  • Hum compensating coil
  • Integral pop filter
  • On/off switch (reed switch) can be locked in the ‘ON’ position if required

Not Applicable


“It rejects off-axis sounds brilliantly, so there’s no danger of other drums or instruments bleeding into the kick drum recordings. This saves a lot of time and effort during the EQ stage of the mixing process.”

Darren, Head of Technical Sales
