      Comments about Sennheiser e935 Cardioid Dynamic Microphone:

      I've used the Sure Sm57, SM58, Beta 58, Beta 87, Audix OM7. This is the only microphone that made the cut! I have a super powerful Baritone voice, I needed something that could handle my loud voice without cracking up. I also wanted it to capture the texture on the low range. I've always used a phantom powered condenser microphone in the past. But. I recently purchased a Bose L1-1s system and was having problems with feedback. The e935 took care of the feedback problem, also giving me the great sound that I was used too! JAM on!

      Comments about Sennheiser e935 Cardioid Dynamic Microphone:

      I just spent an hour comparing this mic along with an EV767, an Audix OM5, a Shure Beta 58a and my old SM58. I also set up an AKG condenser mic to use as a "gold standard."

      My initial reaction was that the SM58 was dark and muddy and I couldn't wait to upgrade. :-) My next reaction was that the Sennheiser also had a dark and uninspiring sound. But as I went through a few songs, singing one verse on each mic, it really grew on me. Eventually I concluded that while the EV and Audix had more high end sizzle, the Senn was the most accurate and balanced. The real kicker was when I went back and compared to the condenser. Don't get me wrong, the condenser was miles above all these in the openness and clarity of sound, but the Sennheiser was the only one that broke from the pack and moved noticeably in that direction.

      After performing some other tests, I found the Senn tied with the EV for off-center response (e.g., when I look down at my guitar), and had the most feedback resistance and least proximity effect. The Beta 58a had a similarly balanced tone, but lacked the openness of the Sennheiser.

      Disclaimer, I have a fairly plain, quiet voice, and I'm singing over a thick, loud resonator guitar and a harp player, all in a similar tone range. My goal for a new mic was to help my voice stand out in the mix.

      What I found was something that picked up more detail and nuance in my voice than I expected to ever hear in this setting. I'm really looking forward to performing with this thing!

      Comments about Sennheiser e935 Cardioid Dynamic Microphone:

      Fantastic microphone. I have had plenty of experience with Sennheiser wireless, but never used one of their wired mikes before. This weekend in a worship service, I was blown away by the clarity and tonal quality of the e935. I've used SM58s for years, but this mike seems much superior for my vocal range and style. Two thumbs up!

        Comments about Sennheiser e935 Cardioid Dynamic Microphone:

        Wanted to try something above and beyond my sm58. I am very happy with the e935! Considered getting the e835 for less money; and haven't done a comparison between the two. So, I don't know if I would have been as happy with the cheaper 835. I have a (male) voice that can get buried in the mix and this mic helps with a clearer, more punchy sound. Definitely better gain before feedback in the monitors, too.

          Comments about Sennheiser e935 Cardioid Dynamic Microphone:

          If your considering a Shure- STOP!

          This is not an excellent mic for the price point, its an excellent mic period. You really don't get much more out of a cardioid mic then with the 900 series. The frequency response range is better then the Shure Beta 58 or the Shure SM58, so if you wondering about stepping away from what appears to be the performers standard, don't. Your really wandering into the next level of sound quality and reaching a new level of professionalism. This is a better constructed and has better frequency response, and because of this you vocals will come through with the full range of your vocal characteristics and tonal variation. I actually had to change the way I EQ my vocals,and have migrated to a more neutral EQ because the mic performs so much better than my Shure line up.

          I will also say, this mic has a better cardio pattern the the Shures do, providing better pickup off center almost to a true 90 degrees. The mic also has better feedback reduction due to the construction of the mic. i can get an extra 3-4 DB in gain!

          Comments about Sennheiser e935 Cardioid Dynamic Microphone:

          This mic is very hot (aka picks up everything). It's perfect for me, since I tend to sing very quietly. You probably won't want this mic if you're a powerhouse singer, considering it already picks up so much, but it's sound quality is also crystal clear. All around very good mic. Can be used for live performance, or recording.

              I've used SM 57 and SM58s for years and never had any complaint. They are excellent mics, however, I must say this 935 mic has some additional clarity or definition I did not know I was missing. This mic is well worth the extra cost.

                Comments about Sennheiser e935 Cardioid Dynamic Microphone:

                My 28 year old sure SM58 bit the dust, so I thought I would look for something that would overcome some of the problems I had with that mike, even though I loved that 58. I play guitar and sing with 3 guys who all sing louder than I do, I'm the female in the group, and I have a hard time being heard. We play loud classic rock. When I plugged this mike in at practice, everyone was like "WOW! We can hear you!". My other problem was that I sometimes look down at my pedal board while I'm singing and my voice just drops out because the Shure had such a tight unidirectional pattern. The Sennheiser picks me up even when I'm not eating the mike. I did a lot of reading of reviews before I bought it and everyone said this was a great mike for a female vocalist. They are right, I love the way it makes me sound. I highly recommend it, and if it gets stolen, I will buy the same mike again. Just be careful and buy from a reputable dealer, I hear there are a lot of chinese fakes on [@] that look like the real thing.

                The Sennheiser e935 has kicked my Shure Beta SM58's butt! I always relied on Shure Mics for over 40 years until I used this mic... full tonal range from deep low voise to the crisp highs. It picks up the "Sss" & "Ttt" of my voice as if I was hearing for the first time! GREAT MIC !!!
