I purchased the Sennheiser E835 6 months ago. I run it with a Phonic EQ, and old Peavey Mixer. This mic has held up to all of my bands practice sessions and through all of our shows. It has been dropped, stuffed in the bottem of the gear bag, thrown, spun, kicked and spit on and it still works just as new (aside a few scratches). When comparing it to the Shure SM58, my Sennheiser picks up the screaming portion of my vocals with a near perfect sound. I have used this mic in recording as well, everything came out clear. Granted a condencer mic would be a better tool for recording i think. This is a worthy front man mic. Durable, reliable and definitely worth it's money.

I have seen this mic used quite often and was curious about how it would sound. It is a great mic and well built. However to me it sounds a little muddy. I feel like it is missing that boost around the 3-5k range. I am keeping the mic but prefer my sm58

Outperfoms the venerable '58

By Tom

from Langley, WA

Comments about Sennheiser e 835 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

I hadn't realised how dated the SM58 was until I tried this one. The 58 was designed in the days when mike inputs were transformer based, and doesn't seem to work quite as well into modern inputs with slightly higher impedances. This sennheiser is excellent. Robust, with a great pickup and low handling noise. I can use it for closeup vocals or at a handspan's distance for speech. A great all rounder for my purposes. The '58 is firmly relegated to backup.

Sennheiser e835

By AccurateSound1985

from Columbus, OH

Comments about Sennheiser e 835 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

The Sennheiser e835 vocal mic was a great addition to my collection. To me vocal mics are the hardest to choose as every singer can really use a different mic. The reason I liked the Sennheiser e835 over the Audix OM-2 and the Shure SM-58 was simple. I liked the frequency response better, and sound was what I wanted when I got it. I would have to say that if I was going for durability I'd pick the Audix OM-2, which was actually the best rounded of the three mics mentioned so far. And if I was going for reliability I would've chosen the Shure SM-58 as they are an industry standard that you don't see fail too many times. Really if you want to get a GREAT stagee vocal mic that combines sound quality, reliability, and durability I?d look into either an Audix OM-5 or Electro-Voice N/D-767A, but as the saying goes you get what you pay for, and if you are really into quality you should look at a Shure Beta 87 or Neumann handheld, just don?t drop one of those. Good luck mic hunting!

Good for stage use

By Fuzzball

from Ida, MI

Comments about Sennheiser e 835 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

I have mixed feelings about this mic. First the mic is very good for general use. The mic has a suttle boost that tends to push the high range up a bit to high causing the mic to produce the s sounds a little to high. This problem can be easily eliminated by reducing the EQ at the high frequency range but it dulls the tone a bit. The mic is built well but it is not as tough as a SM58. Overall it is a good mic but I would reach for a SM58 before this mic if possible.

Awsome Mic For Under $100

By MindPollution

from Millville, NJ

Comments about Sennheiser e 835 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

I got the Sennheiser E835 a couple of weeks ago and it is an all around awsome mic. It is killer for vocals and my singer and I love it! This is the best mic for under $100 you can get for live proforming. I personaly think this is a better mic than the Shure SM58, but it depends on the singer.

I like it

By arpikusz

from Serbia

Comments about Sennheiser e 835 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

I've been using e835s for a year now. They are great. I would choose them against the SM58. I had Shure miks in my hand that broke to peaces, but I never ever had any problems with the e835. Yes, there are a bit more highs then needed, but if the singer likes to "swallow" the mike, then everything is OK with the sound.

Absolutely Amazing

By Cameron Johnson

from Jacksonville, FL

Comments about Sennheiser e 835 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

My band had been requiring me to buy this mic for a while now, so i finally bought it yesterday, and I can tell 2 immediate differences. The first is that there is a substantial sound quality boost. The second is that as soon as I plugged it in and started screaming, I felt more confident with myself, it's like the e835 has something about it that just holding is comfortable and has some kind of aura around it that improves confidence. Great stage mic, great anything mic. Being used to mediocre microphones and then going straight to an e835 is like going from wannabe, to pro. Great mic for pretty much 10% of the price it should be. I highly recommend the e835 for any and all singers and screamers.

A worthy risk

By Ellen Samuelson

from Minnesota

Comments about Sennheiser e 835 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

I went into Guitar Center not too long ago to buy a Shure SM58. After talking with the sales guy, he recommended this mic as it had a wider range than the 58. Before this, I had an irrational dislike of Sennheiser. However, given the nature of my vocal style, I decided that maybe the 835 was a better investment than a 58. And I will say that it definitely has been so far. It accentuates the grit of my screams and growls, and conversely responds incredibly smooth to sung lines. Truly, I like this mic so much already, that I want to record with it and take it wherever I play live. Highly recommended for metal vocalists.

I choose it over the sm58

By Brian McAlpine

from Texas

Comments about Sennheiser e 835 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

First of all, I like the sm58. I give it a high rating also. It has a presence that makes me feel confident to sing loud and bold. The Senheiser, however, sounds like a step up. It's just simply smoother and picks up more subtle nuances in my vocals than the sm58 and other mikes. I used it in rehearsals for the last few weeks and have gotten to know this mic. Tonight, I used it for the first big show and it performed outstandingly well. The vocals were really clear and "on top" of the music. Not only that, when it spoke to the crowd, it was noticeably clearer. Overall, I am very pleased and impressed (as was our other vocalist)! This will be my mike of choice now.

The New Industry Standard

By Alan Lebov

from Denver, Colorado

Comments about Sennheiser e 835 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

Well, for those who say this microphone isn't as good as a Shure SM58, you're right. It's much better. Warmer, clearer, larger sweet spot, more output before feedback. I don't understand the reviews describing this mic as muddy. I had it side by side with an SM58 plugged directly into a JBL EON with flat EQ. I tried the SM58 first then the e835. It was like wiping the fog off of a window. Suddenly I could "see" what I was missing in the aural spectrum. I haven't been this excited about a microphone in a long time! I put my SM58 on Craigslist about 2 hours after buying one of these. Don't hesitate. This is the new industry standard.

Great Mic!

By Full Sail Grad

from Winter Park, FL

Comments about Sennheiser e 835 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

I have to say that the Sennheiser E835 is one of the best deals for you money. I have used it for 2 years now and its worth every penny. I have dropped or hit it against the ground countless times and it still works like new. It also is very light in weight for as well as it holds up against the wear and tear. The only problem I have had, is that I cracked the grill of the mic and have yet to be able to find a replacement. Overall though if you buy the Sennheiser E835 today you will never have to worry about buying another mic for a long time!!

    Absolutely a great mike!
    I have three of these and I use them to record church service as well as for the PA
    Pastor and readers all sound clear and powerful.
    Watch the highs though EQ needed to rollum back a bit. The versatility of these are remarkable
    pickup range very good too!

        Comments about Sennheiser e 835 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

        I've been singing/screaming for over 10 years now and the quality of this mic is amazing. With many mics I've had in the past I had to pull the mic so far away from my mouth when doing a loud projected scream it was frustrating. With this microphone I can go from singing at a near whisper to pulling it slightly back and letting out a loud projected scream without any distortion. I've had mine now for about three years and I'll probably never switch back to Shure due this mics capabilities for screaming. I recently picked up an e935 and my guitarist is now using this. The durability is no joke either, I've accidentally dropped this mic when setting up for gigs too many times to count, and besides some scratches, this mic still sounds as good as the day i bought it.

        It's a decent mic but lack of power

        By amy wong

        from Plano, Texas

        Comments about Sennheiser e 835 Cardioid Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

        This was my first purchase of Sennheiser microphone. I choose E835 because the price was reasonable. Using this mic for singing is good enough, however, lack of power so I always have to turn up the volume or adjust the gain. I also noticed that when i sing, my vocal had a hard time to cut through the mix without turning the volume up high. Overall, I would choose Shure Beta 58A over this E835. It's too late to return it because 30 days has expired. I'll just keep it for backup purpose.
