Great sound and build quality
The Jazz Dude, 27.06.2019
Microphones are one of the most subjective pieces of musical equipment you can buy so always try a large sample of microphones before making your choice.

After much testing I purchased a Sennheiser e965. I loved the sound and vocal control I was able to produce and it suited a lot of different musical scenarios for me. However, it is a bit on the fiddly side with all the controls on it and not super durable. I had to return it for repair. It's also expensive. I decided to try the e865 instead as it is half the price and less complicated. A straight forward supercardioid condenser microphone with no frills.

I am extremely happy with the e865 and will soon purchase a second as a backup. I mainly use it for singing jazz and swing music and love the colour and precision it allows me to bring to each song. It's been gigging with me every week for the past 6 months and looks like it will easily stand up to the wear-and-tear.

As always, thank you to Thomann for the great service.

One of the nicest sounding mic's ever.
Matthew D., 27.05.2013
For the money these things cost there are very few mics out there to beat it. The sound is smooth, warm, detailed and articulate. If you have previously been using the Shure SM58 / Beta58 then you are missing out! Get this mic instead! It is similar in sound to the Beta87 but the Sennheiser is warmer. This without doubt the best choice for female vocals under £500.00 We find that little or no EQ is ever needed. It is our goto mic in every situation, when we convince singers to give it a try they realise what they have been missing out on, it cuts through without ever being in your face, it makes the task of clean, clear vocals easy!

I bought this microphone for my sister, she loves the microphone, super simple to use and clean look. This microphone is quite good in terms of sound, super defined and balanced sound, advise who does live concerts and want power in his voice.
