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.

Great sounding, more feedback than others

Jibu, 28.12.2016
I have not heard a better sounding handheld, dynamic microphone. I have heard several that may sound just as good, some of which are much less expensive, but I can't say I've heard a better sounding one.

The biggest drawback I see with this microphone is it seems to have a stronger tendency to feedback than any other I've tried. I evaluated both feedback from the side and back and made a subjective evaluation of this and the polar pattern, and my perception tells me the e945 has a fairly broad pattern for a supercardioid, about the same as what many cardioid mics like the SM58 have. Although the e945 has significantly more gain than a SM58, it still tended to be more likely to produce feedback from the side even when the additional gain was compensated for in comparison.

It could be a great microphone where feedback is not a concern, or very likely, such as for recording or when the mic and monitors are in fixed locations and all precaution has been taken to avoid feedback.

Although we have a pretty decent sound system at our church, as soon as my lips hit this mic I could instantly hear the difference. By hearing the crispness and clarity, it encouraged me to be more creative. No regrets.. Highly recommended...
