The biggest advantage of the beyerdynamic microphone is its immediate noticeable sound quality. Instead of noisy sound you receive clean and clear sounds.
To further improve the recording quality, the MCE 85 BA has some extras including the supplied pop shield (...). But the suspension of the microphone also contributes to a better sound.
Furthermore, a high-pass filter is integrated in the device, which can be activated manually. It ensures that the voice of some of the interviewees, who are very close in front of the microphone, do not sound too dull. A footfall sound insulation is permanently active to avoid a transmission of noise below 40 Hz.
The perfect sound quality is only one aspect, beyerdynamic has thought about. The simple and reliable usability is another one.
Conclusion: With a price of around 200 Euro (...) the beyerdynamic MCE 85 BA is not inexpensive. But photographers and filmmakers will buy it only once and make sure to always record a reliably crystal-clear sound.
