Your vocals can now take center stage with the e 865 from Sennheiser. The first condenser microphone in Sennheiser’s acclaimed Evolution series, the e 865 makes it possible to achieve a natural, detailed sound that accurately captures your voice in live performances. Whether you’re a lead singer during a worship service, a moderator or speaker during an onstage presentation, or any application in between, the e 865 is the perfect entry-level microphone that refuses to compromise on pro-caliber sound.
This electret condenser microphone is sensitive to the slightest nuances of singers and speakers, while its supercardioid polar pattern makes it easy to "aim" the mic so it captures all the sound you want—and none of the background or handling noise you don’t. Boasting detailed and natural 40 Hz - 20 kHz reproduction and superb transient response, the e 865 easily cuts through high on-stage levels. The result is that the e 865 keeps the focus where it should be: on your performance.
The e 865 sports a rugged, all-metal housing and steel inlet basket that contributes to its reliable performance. It also comes with a 10-year warranty, giving you added confidence.
Available variant option: the e 865-S comes with an integrated silent ON/OFF switch.
