OVERVIEW

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 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!

    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.

    Comments about Sennheiser e 838 Stand and Cable Package:

    My Sennheiser e838 worked well on lead and backing vocals in our 7 piece variety setting as well as 18 piece big band. Tone is clear and works well with my baritone vocal range.

      Comments about Sennheiser e 838 Stand and Cable Package:

      Bought 3 of these sets for use in a Coffeehouse event where I run the sound board. Here are my impressions:

      1. Poor quality stand, but better than nothing.
      2. Inexpensive, but reasonable quality cables.
      3. GREAT mics for the price.

      I was tired of having 3 different mics on stage. EQing each as various groups came on stage for 2-3 songs at a time was a nuissance. Now I can level all 3 between sets and quickly adjust as needed to the individual voices.

      That being said, I get a lot of complements from performers and audience alike for the sound. After switching from SM58's for two of the mics to these E838s I have had some very positive comments from the performers. The only negative I've heard is that they aren't great with plosives - guess I need to buy some windscreens...

      At the price, these are very good value. They are clean and clear and have low handling noise. They are a cardiod pickup pattern. If you want high rejection from feedback, these aren't for you. But for the performers I work with this works quite well. They often sing off-axis or are mic'ing a guitar and moving around a lot. These mics let me keep a decent enough signal level even under those conditions.

      I would use these for groups and acoustic type situations, but not for rock band situations.

        Got SEnnheisers to replace old bargain mics.At same time got AKGD8000S for auxilliary/backup. Had experienced both at recent events similar to those we do.
        Find that great superiority of Senns is in resisting handling, bumping toe-tapping lo freq non musical sound. Especially on a wooden stage. Senns will definitely be our 1st string mics. We do small to medium venues, max 300 watts to a pair of medium quality 15" speakers,easy listening but lively.comparably priced but easy choice.

          I've got SM58's and a beta 58A....The e838 and e835 Senheisers are clearer and fuller sounding while being ez to EQ....I will change out all others...soon.

            Saw the deal and wanted to try a new microphone to compare against the SHURE 58 I've been using. Found I actually prefer the e 838 and now have a backup mic stand and XLR cable for a great price.

              I ordered 2 of these mics and stands. they seem to be just what I needed the quality of the mics are very good. the booms are kind of light but not bad. the only problem I've had is the mic holders are the wrong ones for the booms they won't work.

              Haven't used the stand yet, but after a few weeks now of using the microphone and cable, I am really glad I made the purchase. I usually us pg58's but this is as high quality, clear sound microphone. And it has a nice look compared to my other microphones. Highly recommend if you can get the same deal as I did, its definitely worth it!! Bought 2 sets, so glad I did.
