I have owned the Sennheiser e835 microphone since 1999 and it has performed excellently over all these years. I am a working musician and singer who works regularly and puts a lot of mileage and wear & tear on my gear. This mic sounds great, very clear and crisp and I have never had any problem with feedback… and I usually stand right in front of a very hot speaker. It's been a great microphone. I just purchased a second one today to use as my main mic and keep the older one as a backup. I definitely prefer it to the Sure SM58.

The day after I received the latest catalog, I went on line to order a sale item - Sennheiser e838. I could not find it on line. I called for assistance and sales person I spoke with could not find it either. They said it was probably out of stock. The day after I received the catalog with the sales offer? So, I ended up buying the e835 instead. I prefer the sound of the e838 over the e835 as well as would have preferred to have the new mic look the same as the others I previously purchased. Not a huge deal, however, now I have one black one (e835) and two silver ones (e838).

        This Mike is a workhorse. Crisp sound, tough and durable. For a bar band, this thing takes a licking and keeps on ticking. If you gig a lot in bars and you know that things tend to hit the floorboards now and then...this Mike is for you. Clean and mean.

            Comments about Sennheiser e835 Performance Vocal Mic:

            I used a Shure SM 58 beta for 30 years in bars lounges and large parties. The Sennheiser seems to me to trade off the base and booming proximity effect of the Shure for crystal clear and more natural sounding vocals when worked up close. It doesn't interfere with or color my expression of the song.

            Comments about Sennheiser e835 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 e835 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.
