Sennheiser MKH 8060 w/ Rycote Small Cyclone

Thinking of upgrading your shotgun microphone? Why not take advantage of this specially selected WBS Ltd bundle offer. The combination of these items offers exceptional wind protection and high quality audio reproduction.

We are reliably informed that using a new cyclone without a windjammer offer similar protection to the old style basket with a windjammer!  If you do require addition wind protection, select the required basket (+ fur) from product options*.  Please specify Grey or Black fur in comments when checking out.

NOTE: If you intend to use a foam windshield inside the basket, you should choose the MZL version from product options.


MKH 8060

Whether it’s a feature film, a documentary, an outdoor shoot or a studio production, the MKH 8060 will provide high quality sound to match your great pictures. Handily compact it shows its strengths as a professional shotgun microphone: The MKH 8060 delivers an absolute natural sound and outstanding off-axis linearity, attenuating sound coming from the side without coloration. Like all mics of the 8000-family it can be easily combined with the MZD 8000 digital module, turning it into a full-fledged digital microphone.



  • Super-cardioid/lobar pick-up pattern
  • Very natural sound
  • Undistorted off-axis sound
  • Exceptionally low inherent self-noise
  • Extremely low distortion
  • Transformerless and fully floating balanced output
  • High output signal
  • Rugged metal housing
  • Non-reflective Nextel coating
  • Extremely weather-proof due to RF circuit
  • Ideal for camera mounting due to compact design
  • Becomes a digital mic when combined with the MZD 8000 digital module
  • Timbrally identical with the other 8000-series microphones for optimum aural compatibility



The Cyclone features a durable, lightweight design, category leading wind and shock isolation performance, with the same overall mass yet lighter in weight than modular windshield designs.  All Cyclone (XLR) baskets are fitted with a low profile XLR at the microphone end.



You can unscrew the barrel from the MKH 8060 and connect it to the basket using the MZL connection provided.   


The Cyclone introduces a unique “multi-suspension” design that provides complete isolation against handling noise and cable-borne noises, and windshield basket self-noise. In addition to the outstanding shock protection provided by the patented Rycote Lyre suspension webs, shock performance is further enhanced by the new Rycote Floating-Basket Suspension with Lyre® Technology (patent pending). This basket suspension provides a unique isolation barrier between the windshield basket and suspension that inhibits noise and vibration induced by the windshield itself from being mechanically transmitted to the primary suspension.



The two-piece Z-Locking design magnetically affixes the basket around the microphone for instant and secure attachment to or detachment from the suspension. Increased transparency is achieved due to the cone-like shape, which vastly reduces reflective parallel surfaces and “room effect”. With the same overall mass, the unique, design shifts the overall bulk to the basket front for superior wind-noise reduction exceeding modular-style windshield / windjammer combined performance.

In addition to the shape and structure of the Cyclone, 3D-Tex® covers the windshield exterior. This durable material combines excellent acoustic transparency with superb attenuation of wind noise.
