e935 vocal mic review

Ask me a question

Comments about Sennheiser e 935 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

If you sing live or want to start recording vocals, this is your mic.
I have worked with several excellent female vocalists over the past several years and when all were in need of a new mic, we took a trip to our nearest Guitar Center to compare mics to see which mic worked best for their particular voice. The first vocalist I took mic shopping was an excellent clear toned alto with a powerful voice. We plugged the mic into a simple PA with a good tone setting and started A/Bing mics. We went through all of the better dynamic vocal mics at GC as well as a few hand held condensers. The last two finalists were the e935 and the Beta 58. We found the e935 to be truer to her natural tone. The 58 added a little midrange honk that we didn't like.

A few years later, I took an suberbly soulful, light voiced soprano to the same store for the same test. With her completely different tone and style, the e935 came out on top again.

I turned some other vocalists on to the e935 and they were all sold immediately. Recently I was working on recording a band in the studio. For this particular project, we decided to record the entire band playing at one time and to reduce the bleed, we used dynamic mics for their tight polar pattern. The lead vocalists used e935s and the results were excellent.

I had been using a really nice Beyer m69 that I've had and used for years. After singing through an e935 for the first time myself, I just had to get one too. As far as I'm concerned, it's the best vocal mic out there for less than $200. Perhaps it is the best mic out there.

Highly recommended.
Seems to be built like a tank. I'm sure my alto friend has dropped hers multiple times by now.
Can't buy a better mic at this price point.

    Comments about Sennheiser e 935 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal 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.

    Rock solid performer

    Comments about Sennheiser e 935 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

    I am a 30+ year veteran of live performance. This mic is as durable as they come & sounds GREAT! It has a great smooth sound with no high end harshness or midrange spikes. Very good bass response without being boomy. After a year of use & near 300 gigs It still looks new (trust me, it's seen ALOT of action).It's been Knocked over by drunken bar patrons, fallen from a broken mic clip, & been mis-handled by clumsy stage hands & it has never once let me down. I have been using EV 767s. The 767s sound good & are loud, but have a biting response that causes ear fatigue if you aren't careful. After breaking the fourth 767 by just loading stands in the gig box with it (EVs are the most fragile mics in production today), I decided to try something different. I tried Shure Beta's, AKGs, Beyers & various others. I have a wide vocal range & need something for my solo shows as well as full band performances. The e945 sounds incredible but had too close a pattern for my solo gigs playing guitar & singing. I move around too much. The e935 is great for solo shows. With my band it sometimes picks up the drums or guitars but hey, that is my fault. It's a cardioid pattern & I know my job. If it picks up other instruments it's my fault not the mic. Overall the best performance mic I have ever used in my near 35 years on stage. Give it a good listen before you decide on a mic. Beware of the EVs. They are loud but your sound man better be damn good or your audience will have a hard time listening to you for a four hour show. The "ball" & capsule will also break off easily, not to mention the plastic sleeve will wear out & fall apart or fall off.

    Comments about Sennheiser e 935 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal 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!

    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.

    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 !!!

    Sennheiser e935 Review

    By Jonathan Brady

    from Florida

    Comments about Sennheiser e 935 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

    I would give this mic. an excellent rating. The general contruction is excellent. I will be interested to see if the wind screen will retain it's luster. I perform 8 to 9 times every week.s
    I must say that the flat top wind screen seems to get better response and coverage for my style. I move around the mic. a bit. This keeps me more in place.
    The quality of this mic. is outstanding. It reproduce's my true voice and diffinity picks up the lows.
    I feel this mic. could probably sell for more. However, I think it is reasonably priced.

      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!

      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.

          By PaulGeGe

          from Seminole, FL

          Comments about Sennheiser e 935 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

          I compared to my good old EV 257 ( still sounds pretty good) and a new EV 767 , Audix OM5, Blue 200, Blue 100, Shure Beta 87 condenser and Audix VX Condenser. I didn't dislike any of these mics but it came down to the Shure Beta 87 and the Sennheiser 935 for my baritone voice and these two were very similar sounding. The EV 767 was also nice but it was too similar to my old 257. Honestly, I could have gone either way but chose the 935 because it may be less feedback prone playing live , being a dynamic mic. The 935 is just well balanced ,has a very nice midrange presence and is not as boomy as the EV or as crispy as Audix.

          Comments about Sennheiser e 935 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

          Having used SM58s for the past 25+ yrs, I recently had the pleasure of trying several mics over a 6 wk period with our band's sound system...new SM5 Audix OM2,3,5, Senn e935, e96 Heil PR20, PR35. For my voice (clear, high bari/low-mid tenor) the e935, OM6, and PR20 stood out. Also loved the e965 but just too expensive. The e935 simply stood out with the nicest clarity and presence with very little EQ and a wonderful smooth tone without being boomy on the low end or brittle on the highs. Mids are perfect for my voice. Just great balance and a joy to use on our system with nice clarity in the monitor mix.The OM6 is right up there with the e935, excellent clarity, very smooth and balanced with little EQ needed. Nice presence with a slightly different character than the e935.The PR20 is just a different animal altogether...inherently warmer and deeper/fuller than the e935 or OM6 with a character all its own. I ended up buying the e935, OM6 and PR20 but my favorite?.the e935. The overall tone, clarity, and presence of this mic is outstanding with good GBF/SPL and little to no handling noise.

          Comments about Sennheiser e 935 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

          We had SM 58 beta mics, then I got a OM6. I liked the OM6 because it had minimal proximity effect, and my voice isn't very loud, so I do have to get right up on a mic. Then we tried this mic and a Heil PR35. The 935 is very clear and clean, but not very loud. The Heil was a LOT louder & had more presence, though much pricier. So far the Heil PR35 .has beat them all.

          Comments about Sennheiser e 935 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

          Im a professional male singer and i sing everything from jazz to country. I typically use a shure sm58. Im very picky about my sound and the 58 was starting to annoy me. I was getting feedback and the overall sound was too cloudy for my taste. So I upgraded to the e935 and here's the major differences compared to a 58. It has less proximity effect, hotter output, more detail, better high end response and more off axis rejection. This mic not only sounds better, but it's also a better built mic. The only things i dont like are no on/off switch and it seems to be more sensitive to plosives. But overall this is a fantastic mic and i would recommend it to any singer who is looking for a more detailed sound.

          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!

            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!

            from Undisclosed

            Comments about Sennheiser e 935 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

            This mike has balls. I sing in a modern rock band and my voice is tenor/ baritone. I was using a 58 beta until I plugged this baby in one night at rehearsal. My band mates immediately stopped playing and said I never sounded better. What was the deal? In my opinion if you want to sound heavy get one of these and leave the 58 betas to the chicks and guys with high voices.

              I thought the e838 was amazing. the 835 peaks at 16khz, the 838 at 17khz, and this 935 at 18khz, and the difference really shows. THIS MIC IS AMAZING, YOU WILL SOUND THROUGH THE MIX HOW YOU ACTUALLY SOUND LIKE IN REAL LIFE, and THAT SHOULD BE A GOOD THING!!!!!

              Definitely a step up from the 'standard'

                Comments about Sennheiser e 935 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal 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.
