Audio specialist Sennheiser has an incredible selection of gifts for Mother’s Day that will show you really care.

Capture incredible audio when filming

The simplest way to truly superior sound: the MKE 200
An external, on-camera mic is a brilliant gift for creators using DSLR and mirrorless cameras or phones. A great mic can overcome the poor sound from built-in mics and transform video with high quality audio. Easy to use and tough enough for creative adventures, Sennheiser’s MKE 200 is the ideal present to help your loved one step up their audio game. The microphone has built-in wind protection and integrated shock absorption to make it as compact as possible.

Capture natural sound with less noise: the MKE 400
Some recording challenges need audio from a specific subject or direction to be captured clearly for a more professional result. An on-camera shotgun mic is the perfect solution. Sennheiser’s MKE 400 is a highly directional on-camera shotgun microphone designed to isolate and enhance the audio for your video. The MKE 400 includes built-in wind protection and integrated shock absorption, and offers additional audio monitoring capabilities, sensitivity selection and low-cut filter settings to ensure the best possible recordings.

A boom mic is the perfect tool for this situation and Sennheiser’s MKE 600 shotgun microphone is an ideal choice: It has a distinct (super-cardioid/lobar) pick-up pattern that ensures maximum possible attenuation of unwanted noise elements from the side – ensuring outstanding performance even in demanding filming situations.
