I ordered this over the phone. I was originally going to go with an SM58, which the salesman and I agreed is an excellent mic worth purchasing. However, he told me that if I liked the SM58, I would love the sound of my voice coming through this mic. I figured I had nothing to lose by trying it. I was blown away by the clarity and quality of sound that came from this mic the first time I sang through it. I love this mic! It is a vocalist's dream. Trying is believing!

Mediocre

Too much bleeding, not enough isolation! Mediocre, doesn't even compare to Samson R11's!

Comments about Sennheiser E835S Performance Vocal Microphone:

We use these mics in the singing during our church services. Have used SM58 mics for years and they needed replaced, so we went with the Sennheiser's. Great mics- couldn't be happier !

    Comments about Sennheiser E835S Performance Vocal Microphone:

    I have been playing music in a band for a number of years and was looking for a better mic. Tried this mic out at a local dealer and was very impressed with it's performance but the dealer wanted just a little bit more money then what Musicians Friend wanted. I saw that they had one in a open box so I bought it. In the add they need to explain that the mic does not come with a cord nor with a mic mount. The add should also state that if you do buy a mic cord that the end of the mic has a male plug and you will require to obtain a female extension cord. I have used Shure mic's for years but this mic beats Shure hands down. Well worth your money if you are a singer to buy this mic over a Shure.

    Comments about Sennheiser E835S Performance Vocal Microphone:

    These mics made an instant difference. My band, Minor Miracle, played a wednesday night with our old mics that we thought we decent, then played a show saturday with these mics and everyone could hear an instant and distinct difference in clarity and even in volume! Completely worth the money and then some!

        Comments about Sennheiser E835S Performance Vocal Microphone:

        This microphone is comparable to the Shure Beta 58 and has excellent noise handling isolation and feedback rejection. If your application requires an on/off switch combined with a limited budget, I highly recommend this microphone. I have used the 835s microphones for seven years with no issues.
        I have purchased products from Musicians Friend for over 10 years and can assure you that their customer service is second to none.

          Comments about Sennheiser E835S Performance Vocal Microphone:

          I only recently got this mic so I can't yet express how well it holds up, etc. However, first impressions and rehearsals with it are awesome. I have been using Shure SM58's for the last few years, and occasionally a cheap Nady mic. The Sennheiser feels very solid and a little heavier. The switch is very big, comfortable to use, and sleek. The most impressive part so far is the lower range pick up. I'm a very low lead vocalist for a rock band. Some low notes have been tough to project on other mics. The first time with this mic, my band stopped with a collective "whoa!". (Folsom Prison - also tuned down 1/2 step). Nothing I know compares for a bass vocalist.
