Available April 24, the new action microphone from Sennheiser is ideal for surfing, climbing or mountain biking – and will enhance audio recordings even in conditions such as wind, water, snow and dust.

If you’re going on an adventure, you probably already have an ultra-tough action camera ready to capture the action. Now, thanks to the MKE 2 elements from audio specialist Sennheiser, you don’t have to leave great sound behind. Designed to be tough enough to go wherever your action camera can, the new GoPro-verified microphone for HERO4 Black and Silver cameras lets you capture, claims Sennheiser, “incredible high-quality sound, whether you’re recording during a skiing holiday or want to take the microphone with you when surfing. The MKE 2 elements will record even in the most extreme situations.”

Rugged, waterproof and uniquely capable of taking on the elements, as the ideal partner to your GoPro HERO4 must be, Sennheiser’s new MKE 2 elements microphone has been created, says the company, “to be tough enough to go anywhere your GoPro goes”. It can take on virtually anything GoPro users throw at it – even activities like surfing, climbing or mountain biking – and will enhance audio recordings even in conditions such as wind, water, snow and dust.

“In the world of action sports, uncompromising sound quality was still a summit to be scaled,” said Achim Gleissner, Commercial Manager for Broadcast & Media at Sennheiser. “Until now, users have had to accept that there are situations where poor-quality recordings are inevitable or even when sound capture is impossible, such as under water. The MKE 2 elements breaks through these barriers, so you can make your action cam footage even more intense with fantastic sound. Of course, the microphone performs equally well in less extreme situations: The MKE 2 elements will be an ideal companion for producing outdoor travel footage, with its special design protecting your recordings from wind noise.”

The MKE 2 elements is based on a professional Sennheiser microphone, with innovative features making it nearly immune to snow, wind, and water. It is even capable of recording under water. Its special windshield continues to reduce wind noise for clear sound when it gets wet, while an elastic suspension suppresses any structure-borne noise.

The MKE 2 elements has obtained “Works with GoPro” verification and has been created by Sennheiser as part of the GoPro Developer Program, which ensures seamless integration with GoPro products.

“Through our Developer Program we are very proud to be working with companies like Sennheiser to pursue a shared vision and create seamless user experiences between our products,” said Ted Simonides, Director, Developer Partnerships at GoPro. “The MKE 2 elements epitomises this spirit of innovation and lets GoPro users take their adventures even further.”

”Sennheiser is currently the only audio company that has obtained Works with GoPro verification, and the ground-breaking nature of the MKE 2 elements is a testament to the power of this collaborative and excellence-driven approach,” said Achim Gleissner. “In parallel to bringing the MKE 2 elements to the market, Sennheiser is working on solutions for HERO5 cameras and is excited to continue to collaborate with GoPro as their products evolve.”

The MKE 2 elements action mic for GoPro HERO4 cameras will be available starting April 24, 2017.

I am a writer and photographer living on the West Coast of Portugal, a place I tend to call the Atlantic Realm. An area of rugged cliffs and sandy beaches overlooking the sea, a coastal area sitting between the Atlantic Ocean waves and hills and forests with some of the most magical palaces, castles and prehistorical sites for you to visit and photograph. Little hamlets, vast fields, inviting you to a contemplative state of mind. That’s where I live, and the landscape surely makes you what you are.
