Sennheiser E 945
Tony2565, 12.03.2016
The Sennheiser E-945 is a superb high quality live performance dynamic mic.
Pick-up - It has a super cardioid pickup pattern which helps reduce pick-up of sound from the sides which helps its high gain to feedback figures. What makes this mic so nice is that the off-axis drop off isn't too severe which allows the mic to be easily worked by the vocalist during performance. Some super cardioids have a severe drop off which makes them more difficult for the singer to work.
Build Quality - It is rugged and built like a tank. It could easily survive a few bumps and knocks. It also feels very comfortable in the hand with a good quality heaviness about it. It has a very luxurious looking black body with a fetching metallic blue grill.
Handling - Handling noise is excellently suppressed meaning this mic can be easily handled during performance without anything nasty being picked up.
Tone - Every voice is different so you might have a different view to me, but I found this mic flattering to my voice without it adding any colour. It's actually very difficult to describe, but it's a mic that gives confidence. It has a warm rich tone, while still being very clear and detailed.
Feedback Rejection - As previously stated this mic has a super cardioid pick up pattern which reduces sound pick up from the sides. This helps max gain to feedback if unwanted sound is coming from the sides, but will reduce gain before feedback if the mic is pointed directly to or directly away from unwanted sound. I've had no feedback problems at all with this mic at high sound pressure levels. It also cuts through a mix very well and doesn't need hours spent on eq.
Conclusion - Excellent microphone that offers excellent performance. It sounds great.
For further information, I bought a Shure SM58 at the same time to make a direct comparison and the Senni E945 is my preference, though I'm sure others might prefer the Shure.

Best mic I've owned
Alan62, 31.10.2019
I've owned a number of dynamic mics over the years but I have to say I LOVE my Sennheiser E945. Great clear sound and fabulous for close mic'ing. I'm one of those singers that likes to get right in the grille and it responds really well. Totally recommend it - although you have to remember that it's super-cardioid so watch your monitor positioning.

Great live vocal mic on female voices
DrCheese, 16.02.2020
Heard side by side with a Shure SM58, the Sennheiser E 945 sounds much clearer and the SM58 sounds boxy and cheap in comparison. The only minor criticism is that the included zip-up bag feels a bit flimsy - probably typical for this sort of mic, but I this price, something with a bit more padding would have been appreciated.

Well built microphone. Nice upper range on the microphone however the mic does not have a good low end response. I use this for personal use at home practicing instrument effects and sometimes vocals. It gives an overall good response.
