Have the Sennheiser E935 worried for the singer of my band. I looked for a feedback-resistant, mechanically robust microphone with good sound properties and as a small iTüpfelchen, with a nice optical impression. It is hard for me to understand that for decades only the classic ice cream cone with silver ball has been shown on all the stages. Anyway, my requirements and wishes were fulfilled in this Sennheiser E935 largely.
Features: There is not much to be had on such a microphone. Since I as a sound engineer no fan Of switches at the microphone, I would consider it as a positive feature that no switch On the microphone. Since the E935 does not have a classic ice cream mold the danger is very great that The singer / singer the microphone too far above packs, the decent ports stops, thus the Microphone gives a kind of ballcharacteristics and it begins to couple more clearly earlier.
Sound: The sound is assertive. You get it also quite noisy until it begins to settle with the facility. The sound also seems to be generally optimized for the voice. It has a Some warmth, does not sound too pointed in the heights and yet sounds clear.
Processing: The E935 is very solidly processed. Recently, however, I had to realize with suspicion that there is something in the inner life clattering. With a gentle beat with the finger on the mic basket Only a dull stick can be heard. Here, however, a plastic rattle was added. I immediately unscrewed the basket and times viewed the right. After subtle rum pressing and turning, this sound stopped for the time being. The clamp to the mic is robust and holds the E935 firmly.
Conclusion: The Sennheiser E935 is a recommended singing / moderation microphone with good sound properties and a very robust processing. And it can also be optical To see. It's worth its money although I consider the price / performance ratio to be more appropriate As well. It can be the ice cream cone, the old vocal classic, to everyone To make a case of competition.
I've added the e935 together with the beta58 and am completely satisfied. Have used it now with several assignments of diverse music directions from Punk over Rock, Blues up to German pop ala Annett Louisan (or something like that) as well as with different singers. It has a rounder and slightly warmer sound than the beta58 and gives thin voices and women's voices a nice portion of warmth.
It has not quite the assertiveness of the beta58, which is the mic for most of the lead vocals at Rock for me, but is a perfect complement in my Mikrokoffer if it is sometimes balladiger or musically more sophisticated and the voice may occupy more space in the mix Than with a full rock band.
The processing and the visual appearance are beyond any doubt, the micro feels as valuable as it looks. I also like the subtle, or even elegant look.
