Sennheiser MD 5235 Dynamic Microphone Capsule

The capsule design is based on the capsules used in the vocal microphones of the Sennheiser e900 series. The MD 5235 has been acoustically optimized for loud stage use, its sound characteristics allowing the vocalist to cut through high sound levels on stage.


Rugged sound inlet basket for rough stage use
Shock-mounted capsule minimizes handling noise and vibration
Floating Directivity: The directivity changes from narrow super-cardioid at very high frequencies over cardioid to wide cardioid at very low frequencies. By this means, high-frequency feedback is effectively rejected while the low-end sounds rich and full. Furthermore, the proximity effect is reduced as well as the sensitivity to wind and handling noise.
High feedback rejection
Very good vocal projection
High speech intelligibility
Powerful sound for live vocal performances
Hum compensating coil protects against electromagnetic interference
Very lightweight aluminium voice coil for excellent transient and good treble response
Available in black and nickel
Compatible with SKM 5200 and SKM 5000
