Overview

High-quality permanently polarized condenser headmic with cardioid pick-up pattern, designed for professional "hands-free" applications. The adjustable neckband is visually unobtrusive and very comfortable to wear. The twelve available HSP 4 variants differ in color, size and connector.

For wireless applications, the headmic can be used with different Sennheiser bodypack transmitters, depending on the connection cable (see "Variants"). For wired applications, the headmic can be used with the MZA 900 P / MZA 900 P-4 phantom power adapter.

New:

The HSP 4 is now available in a revised version with a new attachment clip fort he microphone boom. The new clip has a very rugged, closable design, providing an extremely secure fit of the microphone boom.

    ★★★★★
    ABSOLUTELY THE BEST HEADWORN MIC for LIVE PERFORMANCES!

    For my group PopRox Hawaii, I have tried the Countryman, AKG, Shure, and DPA headword mics, and they have nothing on the Sennheiser HSP4. This HSP4-ew is a very specific model for my live performances. www.reverbnation.com/PopRoxHawaii POPROX HAWAII : Tributes to Billy Idol & Prince & Def Leppard

    PRO:

    Clear, clean, excellent noise rejection, built sturdy, fits perfectly with Sennheiser bodypack transmitters, outperforms the competition hands down.

    CON:

    NONE.

    BEST USES:

    Live bands in any type of stage performance.

    BOTTOM LINE:

    I would recommend this to a friend.
