      For singers in loud bands.

      The Sennheiser e 838 microphone from the evolution 800 Series has been engineered for the vocalist who needs the vocals to cut through the band. Due to its excellent acoustic properties, the e 838 mic delivers a high signal output to cut through high on-stage sound levels with ease. A gentle presence boost to even tonal response ensures vocal clarity and projection. The balanced frequency response maintains signal quality when moving on and off-axis during performance. The minimal proximity effect provides for consistently clear bass-end performance when singing closer to, or further from the microphone. The cardioid pick-up pattern provides excellent feedback rejection and good isolation from incidental rear noise. The rugged metal construction and internal damping isolates handling noise.

      • Rugged metal body

      • Frequency-independent directivity
      • Exceptional feedback rejection
      • Excellent vocal projection
      • Humbucking coil
      • Includes microphone clamp and heavy-duty pouch

        Comments about Sennheiser e 838 Dynamic Microphone:

        I've used the Sennheiser E835 for many years with the same lead singer of a band for whom I run sound. At a recent multi-band concert, we encountered a pre-set stage with an E838 in the lead singer's position. I didn't have another E835 with me so I decided to use the E838. I was very surprised that the lead singer sounded better with the E838 than the E835 with increased clarity and presence. I didn't have to adjust the channel EQ to add any presence boost or reduce low frequency plosives. The mic did it all for me. As soon as possible, I ordered an E838 and will use it for many of the lead singers I run sound for.

            BUY IT! BEST IN IT'S CLASS!!! if u can afford the e935 then do it, its the best, if not, do this, this is the second best in live vocal dynamics, unless u want a supercardioid, then go for the e845 or the e945

              Comments about Sennheiser e 838 Dynamic Microphone:

              I've used all the "standards" at this price range (58, 835, etc). I had decided on the 835 until I heard this mic. This mic definitely cuts thru the mix. But not because it's super hot or loud. Rather, it's extremely clear with a subtle presence boost, and very little color. So, you can really hear someone using this mic, even at the same volume as other mics. Word to the wise, though. Because it's so clear, your voice will be heard and you can't hide back in the mix. Thus, you gotta be able to sing. But... as a result, the quality of my vocals have improved vastly since using this mic. Get it. You won't be disappointed.

              Outshines other "industry standard" pro vocal mics in the mix! It sounds great without having to add any EQing...

                  Comments about Sennheiser e 838 Dynamic Microphone:

                  We just started a new church and wanted some great mics but we just could not afford the real high end equipment at this point. My wife has used a 935 for years and it has been awesome so we thought we would try a few of these to see how well they would work. We were not disappointed at all ! If anything we were incredibly happy and will definitely be buying more of them as the church continues to grow. When we plugged in her 935, and replaced it with each of the 838's, we couldn't tell the difference. I also tested it against a Sure Beta58a, and found the 838 to be a little crisper.

                  I will say that all of the mics are currently used by female singers (country, southern gospel, and contemporary Christian music)......and the mics are excellent. Definitely recommend it.

                    I'm familiar to the sound of shure sm58 and also beta 57. In my opinion this Senn it's better than both. Crisp, detailed and considering it's a dynamic mic it's pretty airy too. Made in Germany. Solid construction. I don't like the silver color so much but it was a Stupid Deal of The Day so I can't complain. Even if it's not on sale I think its worth it!

                              Compared this mike side by side with my stand by 58.
                              Have to say, the presence and depth was much better.
                              Really sounded like the beta series, but a lot cheaper!
                              Don't know about the "roadworthiness" as this is for
                              a permanent church setting but it definitely has a
                              higher quality sound.
