Sennheiser has launched the HM 200, a sturdy yet lightweight headmic that brings the esteemed sound of the MKE 1 lavalier microphone into a headset configuration.

“The HM 200 has had an immense success as a custom-made product in our home broadcast market,” explains Tom Vollmers, Manager Professional Portfolio at Sennheiser. “It was about time that we turned this top-of-the-range headmic into a series product and brought it to broadcasters as well as theatre and musical sound designers everywhere.”

The HM 200 uses the capsule of Sennheiser’s smallest lavalier mic, the MKE 1, which is known for providing all the advantages of an omnidirectional design – such as lower susceptibility to wind noise – while still providing an audible focus on the speaker’s voice. The headmic is virtually invisible from a distance while offering powerful sound – this makes the HM 200 an ideal choice for musical productions.

The metal frame of this headset microphone is lightweight, robust and flexible; its fixed cable is fitted with a professional 3-pin locking 3.5mm TRS connector. The boom arm is shorter than with other models, which adds to the inconspicuous nature of the design.

The HME 200 is silver-colored with transparent ear-bows and a beige cable. It comes with a beige foam windshield, one large and one small protection cap for the make-up artist, six attachment clips and a transport case. The HME 200 will retail (MAP) at $549 USD.
