Sennheiser announces the launch of their lightweight, sturdy headmic, the HM 200
Sennheiser has launched the HM 200 today, a sturdy yet lightweight headmic that brings the esteemed sound of the MKE 1 lavalier microphone into a headset configuration.
The HM 200 uses the capsule of Sennheiser’s smallest lavalier mic, the MKE 1, which is known for providing all the advantages of an Omni-directional design – such as lower susceptibility to wind noise – while still putting an audible focus on the speaker’s voice. The headmic is virtually invisible from a distance while offering powerful sound – this makes the HM 200 an ideal choice for musical productions.
The metal frame of this headset microphone is lightweight, robust, and flexible; its fixed cable is fitted with a professional 3-pin connector. The boom arm is shorter than with other models which adds to the inconspicuous nature of the design.
The HME 200 is silver-colored with transparent ear-bows and a beige cable. It comes with a beige foam windshield, one large and one small protection cap for the make-up artist, six attachment clips, and a transport case.
