    My fave mic
    This is the mic that my voice-over friends covet. It was time. It's got the sweetness but not too sweet. And it represents my voice the best. I love it.

    Cool Mic
    I've worked mostly in the studio but wanted to get a mic specifically for voice overs and for location sound. I haven't tried it on location yet but it's definitely doing the job for voice overs. Voices cut through clearly and are well defined. Minimal processing is required. Read more

    Great Mic
    I have been using this mic for many, many years. Was time to get a replacement, and I ordered a used one from Studio Ekonmik. Arrived promptly, service was great and mic is in perfect working order. I'd order from these folks anytime.

    Smooth transaction - Great price!
    The 416 needs no introduction. It's a Holy Grail of Voice-Over and Location Sound. The point is - where can you find a good price and great service? I found a price that was below U.S. retail in CDN dollars. And it took a couple, three days to get to me in Brampton from Montreal. Read more

    Industry standard for a good reason.
    I really like this mic. Yes it is built for outside use but will do the job inside if you don't have to much reverb. It's my Go to mic.

    Great for VO
    First off, I just want to say that the staff at Studio Economik is what you hope for when laying out a chunk of money for gear (or even a fifteen dollar cable). They're consistently helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.
    I'm only speaking from experience using this mic for VO. Read more

    Standard for a reason
    We already had one of these industry-standard mics, and demand was high enough to buy another on short notice. It sounds great, as expected, and the service from Studio Economik was fast and efficient. Thank you!

    Industry Standard for Location Film Work... Period.
    First I would like to say, bewere there are many fakes of this microphone floating around eBay and other questionable market places. This is why I chose to purchase the MKH 416 from a reputable dealer like Studio Economik. A lot has been said about this microphone from people far more knowledgeable than myself so I will not comment on what this microphone can do for you and your production. Read more
