The Sennheiser MD 42 is a rugged handheld microphone designed for electronic-news-gathering (ENG) and field production (EFP) applications. The dynamic capsule features an omnidirectional polar pattern and that ensures maximum intelligibility without having the microphone pointed directly at the talker.
