Glass Cracking With Sennheiser 8040ST

I’ve only had the Sennheiser 8040’s for a few days and have been out recording as much as I can to familiarize myself with the microphones. I have been amazed at the quality and low noise of these mics. I will be doing more blog posts with in depth info in the days and weeks ahead. I am just so thrilled with the glass sounds recorded that I wanted to quickly share them. Now I’ve got to go back to real work!

Sennheiser 8040ST

Here are some glass window frame debris demos I recorded at 24-Bit 192K with a SD 702 and the 8040 mics:
