Great mic!

Used good expensive miss for 40 years. This us the best I have ever experienced.

Not For Everyone

After years of using trusty old Shure SM and Beta 58 microphones at gigs, I began to grow curious as to whether there was a better mic out there for my voice. After trying out various mics at gigs (AKG D5 & C5, Shure SM86 & Beta 87a, Audix OM5 & OM7, Sennheiser e835 & e845), I was led to explore the Sennheiser 900 series by the recommendation of a few friends. So, I borrowed an e945 and e935 and compared them pretty intensively (back and forward for a few hours a day) for about two weeks. First off, don't let anyone tell you that Shure is the "industry standard," and therefore the best choice. Yes, Shure is a time tested favorite. But if you research the touring rigs of chart-topping artists, Sennheiser will come up at least as much as Shure. Bruno Mars, Beyonce, Blake Shelton, Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera...the list could go on and on. Bottom line, if you insist on putting any importance on "what the pros are using," Sennheiser is as good as any. Second, don't let ANYONE tell you that the 935 and 945 are the same, minus the polar pattern. They sound quite different from each other, and a voice that sounds great on one could sound totally uninspiring (or downright unpleasant) on another. I personally found that my voice benefitted from the e945's extra clarity and presence, along with the tight and responsive lows (it sounds way more ballsy than any Shure that I've tried). My bandmate, on the other hand, sounded piercing on the 945—we were both literally cringing when he sang anything in his upper register. The much warmer e935 was perfect for him. The moral of the story: this mic sounds like no other, and with the right singer it can be the perfect choice. The presence is not overdone like I found some competitors to be, and it far more pristine and clear sounding than any other mic I have tried. However, you really need to try a range of mics to decide if it's right for you, because no mic is flattering on everybody. I hope to never sing live into anything else now.

Absolutely blown away! Our guitarist, who is also a sound engineer, suggested this mic for me. It is EVERYTHING he said it would be. The adjective I most hear describing this mic is "rich" and it is so true. An amazing microphone. By the way, if the sound engineer can't "deal" with this mic, then he is an idiot, IMHO. It IS cool, however to see that my gain needs to be turned down much lower than everyone else's. Major power and beautiful richness from this mic. I can sing loud OR soft on this mic, whereas I've found Crown works best for soft and SM58 works best for loud (with me). Can sing anything on this mic! I need a Sennheiser endorsement.

Can't be more satisfied

I went to my local guitar shop. I had them plug in 4 microphones. The Shure SM-58, the Shure Beta 58A, the Sennheiser e935 and the e945. Researching products, it is easy to get caught up in "what are the pros using". Everyone wants to use what their idols use. I was prejudiced to Shure as a result. Big Mistake. Before you buy any microphone try out a bunch. I had the rep plug them in on a clean signal with a good P.A. After singing into them for a good 30 minutes, the Sennheiser e945 was the one I kept going back to. The clarity was heads and shoulders above the others. I noticed that the Shures were too warm for me. My voice sounded more "nasal" through those. The e945 gave me the most clarity. I was convinced. Running direct, head to head comparison's, I could not beat the range of this mic. From as low as my voice could go to (approaching) scream....this mic handled crisp as can be. Using it in rehearsals now for 3 weeks, I must say it cuts through our classic rock band mix just wonderfully. My bass player had an old Shue SM 58 in his bag. I pulled it out and tried a couple songs. I was so glad I stuck with the Sennheiser.'s the problem. People, even veterans, are afraid of change. Shure uses older techonology and it is a workhorse no doubt that has stood the test of time. HOWEVER, It might not be the best anymore. This mic will give any of the Shure mics a run for their money. However, each has a different voice and likes a different sound. Try out as many as you can before you buy. But please, make this one you try. You won't be dissapointed.
