Package price on a professional entertainer's microphone with extras.

The legendary Sennheiser e 838 cardiod dynamic microphone, offered with a tripod boom stand and 20' XLR - XLR cable. This microphone compares favorably to any microphone in its price range. With the added accessories, this is a great deal.

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 pickup pattern provides excellent feedback rejection and good isolation from incidental rear noise. The rugged metal construction and internal damping isolates handling noise.

Features
  • Rugged metal body
  • Shock-mounted capsule
  • Frequency-independent directivity
  • Exceptional feedback rejection
  • Excellent vocal projection
  • Humbucking coil

Order today for an unprecedented value on a pro mic with stand and cable.

    I like this mic a lot. I own Audix OM5, OM7, EV ND767 and SM58's. I compared this mic with all the others and it came out quite well.
    It has enough clarity and high frequency response to give vocal separation but also has quite a dominant low end to it. My recommendation would be to use this mic for female vocals as it really does enhance those low frequencies.
    It blows the SM58 away, compares well to the ND767 and is almost as nice as the OM7. It is similar to the OM5 but with more bass response.
    According to my research, the E838 is the silver version of the E840 and uses the same capsule as the E935 which is a much more expensive mic. Great value for money….

    The microphone was the best part of the package. Well built, solid and dependable. Takes a bit more gain over a similar Shure but sounds quite nice.
    The mic stand is a lower quality, will not stand up to steady or heavy use. The XLR cable is quite thin and I do not expect it to last many shows. Overall - not bad as I made the purchase for the microphone. Worth the money.

            Used this mic on two occasions. My band mates noticed the difference between my mic and there SM58's. I'm the bands sound tech so I bought three of these e 838's. Now everyone is happy not having to strain their voices to be heard.

              I did a direct side by side comparison with my SM58 and could not see any difference. Granddaughter tipped it over and the mic hit a fireplace (stone) full on---no damage at all! A very well built unit.

                Comments about Sennheiser e 838 Stand and Cable Package:

                I purchased this for my wife who sings with me in a praise band. I use a Sennheiser e835 that I really like. These aren't for everyone, but in our situation they work very well. She and I have pretty strong voices and this mic is rich and smooth in the upper ranges of your voice when you get very loud. It feels like it has more resistance than a Shure SM58 or Beta58 which is why I prefer it for her voice. It handles a lot of volume being thrown into it. I wouldn't use this for someone who is a soft or breathy vocalist. I also like that this mic is very quiet. It has a pretty small coverage area, so you need to be right on it when singing lead and just slightly off if singing harmony, but if you back off too much you won't be heard. This is ideal if you have a lot of instruments or amps around you. Great value for the price for the mic alone, even better with an extra cable and boom stand!

                  Got an amazing deal on this. Even at its current price it is still a great deal. Only odd thing about the package is the mic holder that comes with the mic is the wrong size to screw onto the stand.

                      I can actually honestly say this mic is better than my SM58 when I tested them side by side and even asked my friends while I tested it again. Switching to this mic from now on!!
