Sennheiser has announced the launch of four innovative products under the range of two microphone categories in India- Sennheiser MD 445, MM 445 and MD 435, MM 435. The purpose behind launching these two range of microphones is to cater to professional artists to make their voices heard clearly with a better sound quality.

According to Vipin Pungalia, Director, Professional Segment, Sennheiser India, “We are excited to announce the launch of four innovative products under the range of two microphone categories in India- the MD 445, MM 445, MD 435 and MM 435. As the world is gradually trying to recover from the pandemic, many artists are looking for solutions that will enhance their vocal performance to engage with the audience even in the loudest environment. For this, we have launched four microphones to cater to the diverse needs of our consumers. The MD 445 is the most powerful microphone in our MD range as it effortlessly cuts through loud stage sound and establishes an audibly greater proximity to the vocals. It additionally comes with MM 445 which can be used with Sennheiser wireless series.  With the MD 435, soft voices will effortlessly assert themselves which will make the presence felt of the artists. It additionally comes with MM 435 microphone head which can be used with Sennheiser wireless series. We are looking forward to seeing how our customers respond to this.”

Sennheiser MD 445 and MM 445:

The stage is incredibly loud, with the instruments seeming to acoustically close in on the vocalist – these are challenging environments for which the new MD 445 from Sennheiser was created. The audio specialist’s large-diaphragm, dynamic stage microphone combines a direct, head-on sound with a tight super-cardioid pick pattern, providing not only maximum isolation from other on-stage sound sources but also an extremely high level of feedback resistance. With the high-rejection MD 445, vocalists can effortlessly assert their presence even in the loudest of environments.

The acoustics of the MD 445 have been tailored to modern stage set-ups with B stages and runways in front of the PA. At the core of the acoustic design is a newly developed voice coil made of lightweight aluminium-copper. Its fast-transient response ensures a very detailed, nuanced and transparent sound that is complemented by rich mid-range and bass. The sound is acoustically close, intimate and open, irrespective of how loud the instrument soundscape may be.

Thanks to its high-rejection, super-cardioid pick-up pattern, the MD 445 has enormous gain before feedback. Dynamics are wide at 146 dB(A) and the microphone can handle sound pressure levels of up to 163 dB/1 kHz.

The outstanding acoustics come with a mechanical design that’s built to withstand a life on tour: The MD 445 features a metal casing and has a shock-mounted capsule to protect it from structure-borne noise. A hum compensating coil protects the microphone against electromagnetic interference.

For use with Sennheiser’s wireless transmitters, the capsule of the MD 445 is also available as MM 445 microphone head. Fitted with Sennheiser’s standard capsule interface, the MM 445 can be used with Sennheiser wireless series ranging from the evolution wireless G4 and 2000 series to Digital 6000 and Digital 9000.

Sennheiser MD 435 and MM 435:

Until now, this outstanding sound has been exclusively reserved for top-end live sound and broadcast productions – now, Sennheiser is bringing the sound of its dynamic MD 9235 capsule to a wired vocal microphone. The new MD 435 large-diaphragm microphone brings accentuated presence, sparkle and pleasant detail to every voice.

The MD 435’s lightweight aluminium-copper voice coil ensures fast transient response, resulting in a very detailed, nuanced and transparent sound, especially in the treble. The large-diaphragm microphone features very wide dynamics of 146 dB(A) and can handle sound pressure levels of up to 163 dB/1 kHz. The outstanding acoustics come with a mechanical design created to take on the rigors of life on tour: The MD 435 features a metal casing and has a shock-mounted capsule to protect it from structure-borne noise. A hum-compensating coil protects the microphone against electromagnetic interference.

The cardioid MD 435 features a very pleasant proximity effect and the microphone is very tolerant of sound hitting the capsule at different angles. It reproduces vocals clearly and confidently even in loud live settings.

For use with Sennheiser’s wireless transmitters, the capsule of the MD 435 is also available as the MM 435 microphone head. Benefitting from an improved production process, it will soon replace the existing MD 9235 capsule. The MM 435 features Sennheiser’s standard capsule interface, ready for use with Sennheiser wireless series ranging from the evolution wireless G4 and 2000 series to Digital 6000 and Digital 9000.

Priced at INR 59,900 MD 445 and MM 445 microphones are now available via offline trade at Dealer & Distributor outlet.
