Sennheiser Cardioid Condenser Microphones
Since 1945, German audio company Sennheiser has been the favored choice of countless recording engineers. Of course, it's no wonder why when you consider that their selection of cardioid condenser microphones is loaded with models to suit every budget and style. From mics designed specifically for woodwind instruments to handheld vocal models, Sennheiser mics are everything you'd expect from a company that's preferred by acclaimed artists such as Kings of Leon, Dashboard Confessional, Coheed And Cambria and many others.
The minimal background noise, exceptional accuracy and shimmering detail of Sennheiser cardioid condenser microphones can be experienced with any one of the models in this section. But if you're still not sure where to start your search, we'll suggest beginning with a top seller then going from there. For example, the MK4 Large Diaphragm Studio Condenser Microphone boasts a 1" true condenser capsule and a 24-carat gold-plated diaphragm. Whether you're recording vocals, acoustic guitar, piano or even woodwind instruments, the MK4's stunning quality and resolution will amaze you, especially given its affordable price.
Now for those of you who want a vocal microphone that's designed specifically for the discerning professional, wait until you see the e965 Large Diaphragm Handheld Condenser Mic. This beauty has a 1" dual-diaphragm capsule that allows you to choose between a cardioid and super-cardioid polar pattern with the easy flick of a switch. Combining the ruggedness of a stage mic with the sensitivity of a first-class studio condenser, the e965 will have vocals cutting clearly through even the loudest mixes.
And your choice of Sennheiser cardioid condenser microphones doesn't stop there. There are many other popular sellers here like the evolution e901 (a terrific mic for bass drums) and the evolution e908B (tailored for brass and woodwind instruments). With a name like Sennheiser, you know that the sound quality of your live and studio performances can only be enhanced, so the next move is up to you.
