Why buy the Sennheiser MD421?

Built for professionals, the Sennheiser MD421’s large diaphragm dynamic element and cardioid pattern makes it a very popular mic amongst musicians and broadcasters alike. Here are our top three reasons to buy it:
  • Built for broadcasters — The MD421 was engineered for brilliant vocal sound quality, and is the perfect mid-range mic for serious podcasters looking for a professional level of quality in their equipment.
  • Unbeatable brand — The MD421 itself has been one of the most popular mics on the planet for the past three or four decades and Sennheiser has been making high-quality recording equipment since the 1940s. Rest assured, when you buy the MD421 what you’re really buying is trust and confidence in the mic’s performance and durability.
  • Price to performance — We judge any mid-range mic on how well it performs against other mics in and above its price class, and the MD421 does not disappoint. If you’re looking to upgrade your gear or you’re just keen to invest in a dependable, long-term mic, the MD421 outperforms many of its more expensive competitors.
