Professional Microphone

Professional Microphone


It can be turned in any direction, it is highly sensitive and customizable. These characteristics make EN-SH89 the ideal choice in the most diverse situations of long range listening and video shooting.

Its features make it possible to achieve the best results both in a closed environment, like a TV studio or a theater, and in a more “complicated” setting like a movie shooting on location, a spot event or shooting of documentary footage.

With a sensitivity of more than -53dB, it is possible to always make sure that the source of sound you are interested in is duly enhanced. The special attention that was given to its design and production has allowed to compensate, in a really effective way, the typical lack of response at higher frequencies which is very common with this kind of directional microphones, while maintaining a very high immunity from disturbances caused by wind, vibration of mechanical parts, background noise.


Furthermore, EN-SH89 is equipped with two filters, which can be selected at your choice, and allow you to further “fine tune” the sound quality. Another strong point of this device is the high protection against RF interferences caused by mobile phones, electricity nodes, electrical cables, home appliances and so on. The result achieved with this innovative microphone is a flawless clarity of voices and sounds.

Comments from professionals

"Shotgun microphones do their job really well. They can pick up and identify the faintest sounds at long distances. Even in the middle of the mess of a movie set, they can enhance an actor’s voice without detecting mid-range environmental noises, and while maintaining a high fidelity.

"This microphone will receive a lot of interest from skeptic sound mixers working with movies and TV productions, which have quality requirements that are even stricter than those you get when recording faraway sound effects during a football game in a stadium.
They will wonder (and some have done so already): how is the sound that you get from EN-SH89, if compared to a traditional shotgun microphone? At what price do you get such a long range?”

"With a maximum SPL of 127dB and a 164 dB noise spec, which generates a dynamic range of 111dB, EN-SH89 will certainly not be everyone’s favorite when the distance and surrounding sounds can fall into the 'normal' category. However, don’t be misled by these numbers, since if it is used at long distances, its SPL will seldom exceed 127dB.”

"For film dialogues, I believe that this microphone could be very useful in scenes with large crowds, especially when you need to focus on a specific area among the crowd, or in action scenes when you have to compete with the sounds coming from wind or rain machines and so on.”




EN-SH89 is approximately 54 cm in length, with a weight of just 195 grams. Since it has a standard size as well as standard connections and mount hooks, it can be used together with most accessories available on the market. Its dedicated preamp can be powered either by batteries (6 AA type batteries, alkaline or rechargeable) or with the network adaptor supplied along with the microphone.
Depending on the battery you use, its operating time can range from a minimum of 5 hours with NiMH 1600mAh elements, 8.5 hours with normal alkaline batteries, up to 12 hours with an external battery pack (3400mAh lead-acid)."
