The Sennheiser MKH 8020, 8040 & 8050 models are all recommend for the Cyclone Kit, Small (XLR), rather than the MZL version. The reason for this recommendation is purely to save the customer the additional cost of buying the MZL version.
Because the Cyclone, Small (XLR) comes fitted with a short XLR connector with an exposed length of 23mm, the models above can all use their MZX XLR module supplied with the mic, and it'll comfortable fit inside the Cyclone.
The MZL Cyclone will work with these mics, and save some weight. However the primary reason for the Cyclone, Small (MZL) is for use with the MKH 8060.
