SENNHEISER MICROPHONES - Handheld - Evolution Series
The Evolution Series presents a range of dynamic microphones for almost all performance requirements. The range delivers the 'highest standards of performance and construction' at affordable prices. This selection also includes a condenser type, aimed at live vocals.
Neodymium magnet capsules are not only capable of handling very high sound pressure levels, greater than 150dB SPL throughout the range, but give high output levels. All have die-cast zinc bodies, low output impedance, 3-pole XLR connector, and are supplied with microphone stand clamp and pouch unless otherwise stated.
e835, e835S - Dynamic, cardioid, live vocal
With uniform frequency pick-up pattern to maintain signal quality when moving on and off axis during performance, these models have a gentle presence boost to ensure clarity and projection. Minimal proximity effect provides clear bass end performance regardless of distance from mouth to microphone. e835S has noiseless reed on/off switch.
Applications: Lead vocals. Frequency response: 40-16000Hz. Sensitivity: 2.7mV/Pa, 1kHz. Dimensions: 180 x 48mm (length x maximum diameter). Weight: 330g.
e845, e845S - Dynamic, super-cardioid, live vocal
These performance vocal microphones have 'extended high frequency response, full dynamic range and smooth warm tonal response. A presence gives vocal clarity and projection. They have 'consistent on/off axis and proximity response'. e845S has a noiseless reed on/off switch.
Applications: Stage vocals. Frequency response: 40-16000Hz. Sensitivity: 1.8mV/Pa, 1kHz. Dimensions: 185 x 46mm (length x maximum diameter). Weight: 330g.
e865, e865S - Condenser, super-cardioid, live vocal
These electret condenser microphones have a super-cardioid pick-up pattern and are designed to give vocals a 'natural, detailed sound', and be 'sensitive to the slightest nuances'. With a 'rugged' metal casing, the e865 has a high level of handling noise rejection, often required in live applications. The e865S has a silent on/off switch.
Applications: Lead vocals. Frequency response: 40-20000Hz. Sensitivity: 3mV/Pa, 1kHz. Dimensions: 193 x 47mm (length x maximum diameter). Weight: 311g.
e935 - Dynamic, cardioid, live vocal
Sennheiser have designed this dynamic microphone for live vocal use. With a 'tough' metal case, 'low handling noise', and internally shock-mounted capsule, the e935 is a popular choice for vocalists of varying genres. The cardioid pick-up pattern ensures the microphone picks up less ambient noise on stage, which works well when using on-stage monitoring to reduce feedback.
Applications: Lead vocals. Frequency response: 40-18000Hz. Sensitivity: 2.8mV/Pa, 1kHz. Dimensions: 151 x 47mm (length x maximum diameter). Weight: 355g.
e945 - Dynamic, super-cardioid, live vocal
This super-cardioid, dynamic microphone has been designed for live vocals whereby a narrower pick-up pattern is advantageous - particularly when on stage monitoring is used. A shock-mounted capsule and a hum-compensating coil ensure the e945 eliminates a higher amount of unwanted interference and handling noise.
Applications: Lead vocals. Frequency response: 40-18000Hz. Sensitivity: 2mV/Pa, 1kHz. Dimensions: 186 x 47mm (length x maximum diameter). Weight: 365g.
e965 - Condenser, cardioid/super-cardioid, live vocal
e965 has been designed by Sennheiser to give the 'advantages of high-end studio' microphones within a live microphone in a 'rugged' metal casing. The externally polarised large-diaphragm condenser capsule has a pick-up pattern which may be switched between cardioid to super-cardioid to ensure the best response for the current application. An on/off low cut switch and sensitivity switch, which selects the sensitivity to either 0dB or -10dB, are both located below the capsule beneath the protective basket. +48V phantom power is required to correctly power this microphone.
Applications: Lead vocals. Frequency response: 40-20000Hz. Sensitivity: 7mV/Pa, 1kHz. Dimensions: 199 x 48mm (length x maximum diameter). Weight: 396g.
