I purchased this mic in a kit that came with a Sennheiser wind muff but haven't used the muff yet so my comments just pertain to the mic.
Used this Sennheiser MKE 600 mic once so far on a small film shoot. Mounted it on a boom pole and plugged in a Sennheiser XLR wireless transmitter to the end of the mic. Mounted the receiver on the Canon 60D and recorded sound directly to the camera. After the first take I pulled the card out and plugged it into the computer to see how the mic sounded. Wow! Was really impressed! Crystal clear dialog with no echoey room sound. Can't imagine a mic costing hundreds or thousands more sounding any better. (However, I haven't used any of those mics either.) I would highly recommend this mic. That wireless transmitter is heavy though so you will need a really strong shock mount if you plan on using the mic with a plug in wireless unit.

Audio is generally the last thought of most people but man for 400 bucks this mic is worth every penny. Nice warm sound great rear rejection. Can go as an on camera mic or a shot gun if you are looking for a solid mic look no further.

I liked this shot gun mic! It is very solid and feels professional indeed (an entry level, but very, very respectable). I actually was interested in a less expensive shotgun mic at first, but ended up getting Sennheiser MKE 600 and Sony PCM M10 portable recorder. I was able to compare Sennheiser with several other microphones side by side when keeping the gain constant, and I used 2 different recording devices - Sony recorder and Nikon digital camera.
Please check my video review on YouTube to listen to Sennheiser MKE 600 mic in comparison with some other mics (Please search for "Microphones compared: Sennheiser MKE 600, Bronstein BRN-900, BRN-400, Sony PCM M10, Nikon D7000" on YouTube or follow the link in the comment below for this review). This test was designed to compare the ability of the microphones to record a distant (or quiet) misic. I intentionally placed the mics fairly far amd compensated by increasing the gain on the Sony recorder, so the noise level relative to signal is higher compared to when speaking directly to mics.

Of these microphones, I liked PCM M10 onboard omnidirectional stereo mics for the high sensitivity, very low self noise and fuller, crisper sound (but it records every ambient noise), and I also liked the MKE 600 shotgun that can help isolate the sound that is natural, loud enough and has a relatively low background hiss. I used this Sennheiser mic with both 48V phantom power from a Mackie mixer and 2 AA batteries (required an XLR to 3.5mm adaptor). The performance was comparable (it is supposed to be slightly better with phantom power, according to the specs). It is a real boon to use AA batteries for such a mic, as I can use it with my Sony recorder or plug directly into digital camera. In addition, the mic comes with a nice pouch.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Julian Smart on September 18, 2014
So this mic is good, I've used it with my Tascam DR-60D and it has worked perfectly. On the last shoot, however, I was conducting an interview with the mic sitting 4 or so feet away from the talent. When I brought it in to be edited I was appalled to find that this "professional mic" had picked up the sound of my talents heartbeat. This is something that I feel should be addressed by Sennheiser, I can't have the sound of someones heart distracting viewers from the message of the interview. For this to receive five stars, I believe Sennheiser should lessen the quality of the MKE 600 to fit into practical scenarios. I can't even imagine what a more expensive microphone would sound like.

Love the clean and clear sound. A good product for filmmakers. I have several mics and this has become my most used one.

Very good for interviews inside, I have used it twice in office type setups both for masculine as female voices at about 3 feet distance with outstanding results. Recorded direct to Nikon D800 in one instance and to Fostex FR2LE in the second. Signal with both recording modes was very acceptable. It is a super-cardioid/lobar mic wich can be used either with phantom or 1.5v battery. Sound is excelent.
