Comments about Sennheiser e 835 Performance Vocal Mic:

as a rapper and producer, i wanted a high quality dynamic mic for my less-than-ideal untreated home setup. i've recorded vocals on sm58s to great results. so, i went shopping for some new mics and caught this one on sale. the salesperson insisted i give it a try. i was reluctant, but when i fired it up at home i was amazed.

my only problem with the mic was that it picked up a lot of sibilance, even with the pop filter. that's likely due to the super-present high-end. i used a de-esser plug-in and the vocals were prefect. i've never gotten results like this out of an sm58, and i still swear by them.

if you catch this mic on sale, don't even think. just give it a try. i'd even suggest giving it a try over the standard sm58. i guarantee it'll punch through your mix better.

of course, the biggest problem with recording dynamic mics is GAIN, GAIN, GAIN. unless you have an amazing pre with like 80dB of gain, you might want to invest in a secondary preamp like cloudlifter or fethead to boost the mic's output before you make the preamp work overtime.

for live shows, i could imagine this mic is excellent for vocalists who want to punch through muddy/cloudy mid-range sounds. just make sure the high-end/sibilance is to your liking during sound check.

The only bad side with this nice microphone is that it doesn't have a turn off switch and sometimes you will get feedback and there's no way to stop it.

    Comments about Sennheiser e 835 Performance Vocal Mic:

    We run a serious house concert series. This mic is highly effective for capturing vocals when the goal is to reinforce an acoustic presentation, rather than only amplify.

    Top folk/Americana artists have put away their 58s and used our 835s. The comments from 7 years of musicians performing here have been; "brighter without being unnatural", "crisp without being too sharp".

    We know of a few serious musicians, who have bought their own 835s after first using them here.

    The only negative we have heard has been from a very few younger female vocalists (with higher ranges) who say they are "a little too crisp". While this may be true for some, I think this is likely based upon what they are used to hearing with 58s or lesser mics.

        No lengthy info...had a 58 for years. After 2 gigs, I have been told how great my vocals are, and I'm the secondary vocalist(guitar and back ground mainly). In fact, one club owner insisted I must've taken vocal lessons. Could not be happier! Look on award shows or live appearances...the pros use this brand.

              Comments about Sennheiser e 835 Performance Vocal Mic:

              I always had used the Shure SM58 until I did a side by side comparison of the industry's standard microphone against the e835. Hands down, the e835 captured the true character of my tone. I wrote a full review for you here: http://musicmunch.com/2013/08/shure-sm58-vs-sennheiser-e835-a-tale-of-live-performance/

                I performed a shootout with the 835 against the Shure sm58 and 2 EV mics. I was looking for the best overall sound for both voice and acoustic guitar recording when recorded individually. The e 835 won. I was surprised.
