Another interesting 8040 test

I was helping do some VO work yesterday and decided to do a quick test since I had things setup. I have not processed either of these samples. I tend to use the AudioTechnica 4040 for recording voice overs, but was very impressed by the Sennheiser 8040. Now I just have to find the right opportunity to use it in the field.

Wayne,

Just wonder how blazing the path for the 8040 has been going. Have you tried the new Senn suspension yet? Is the upper frequency response causing any problems?

Hope all is good with you!

I love the 8040. The high end frequency hasn't been a problem, and the Sennheiser shock mount I think works quite well. I haven't even thought about ordering the Rycote mount, if that tells you anything about what I think about it.

I used it yesterday for some interviews, and I've been using it on a reality TV pilot that I started work on this month. Overall it's a very nice mic and very tiny. It's on my recommended list for an indoor mic that's for sure.

Great to hear! How's it at surpressing room reflections, may I ask?

Thanks again for sharing your knowledge.
