The king of professional quality general purpose shotgun microphones (quite a title!). The ‘416’ is best described as the standard mic to use for field recording, whether it is ENG, documentary, film, television or radio.

Being a short shotgun, the directionality of the pickup is good, without being precise. However it is the sound of a ‘416’ that has earned it the reputation of being ‘the standard’.
