I'm trying to decide between a Sennheiser ME-66/K6 vs an Audio Technica AT-897 for my new 100A.

My primary work is in schools doing somewhat candid videotaping of teachers and needing to shut out extraneous noise.

I also plan to do a school centered documentary.

Any advice regarding either mike appreciated.

Also, will I need an adapter to connect either to the XLR input on the 100A?
Will either need an additional mount? Additional power supply?


thanks.

The AT is a better buy and I think is just as good. You get a more sensitive mic with the ME but once you level the gain I actually think they sound identical. I bought the AT.
