Sennheiser E865 overview

  • 1Description

The Sennheiser e 865 represents the first condenser microphone in the acclaimed evolution series. A live performance, lead vocal microphone, the e 865 easily cuts through high-on-stage levels by virtue of its detailed and natural 40 Hz to 20 kHz reproduction and superb transient response.

Its smooth supercardioid polar pattern rejects feedback with low, off-axis coloration. The e 865 withstands sound pressure levels of up to 150 dB, and deftly suppresses pop noise. While it picks up the finest sonic nuances, the e 865 is at the same time rugged, benefiting from high-quality workmanship and a robust all-metal housing.

    Sennheiser E865 reviews

    e 865 - Handheld Condenser Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greatest Microphone Ever I use Sennheiser E865 for more than 5 Years, and never been upset about this microphone. Great thing about it that it has very clear sound, works perfectly for every kind of voice, but i find it the best in having it for Male Vocal. because it picks up low frequencies really good and makes any voice sound very rich.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the Bunch Before purchasing this, I actually purchased a Sennheiser e965 condenser vocal, which is apparently their top-of-the-line handheld vocal mic. While it was certainly a very high quality mic which I am sure works great for many others, it just didn't fit my voice, even with some EQ experimentation. So, I sent it back and decided to try the e865. Yes! Incredible warmth and presence, able to cut through the band with room to spare, great intelligibility. Short story, I love this mic!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from pricey but worth it used for southern gospel group as vocal mics. bought to replace some old AKG condenser mics that had seen to many miles. these Sennheiser 856e will pull even the most timid singers out of the noise and make it possible to hear them. they sound great and very little problem with feed back.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding vocal mic Nothing bad to say about this mic. I bought four(4) units for my band vocals and couldn't be happier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mic I love this mic -- easily better than my previous lead vocal mic (an EKG that is now discontinued) -- I compared them side by side and always preferred the Sennheiser. Haven't tried it onstage yet, but it definitely gave me more authority in rehearsal. Nice, warm tone in a sleek package.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is awesome! What can I say other than this is awesome! We are rocking the E865 as a ENG handheld mic. We have it paired to a Sennheiser plug on transmitter providing phantom. The pickup pattern is awesome, point at sound, you get sound.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! I am a jazz vocalist and I LOVE this mic!!! The tone is gorgeous and warm and I am able to almost whisper and get beautiful pick up of my voice. The best mic I've ever owned.
