" The lack of sensitivity is a fatal flaw" - JoDuff

13 July 2014
  • Excerpt: It is solidly built, like all Sennheiser e8x5. In my opinion it does not sound so bad for an entry-level micro (contrary to what you may read on the internet). on the other hand, it has a fatal flaw: the lack of sensitivity. The output level is too low, it does not capture the nuances of voice and you have to push t...

"Not for live use!" - mrjason

29 December 2012
  • Excerpt: If you are in a completely silent room using them the sound was not too bad, but in a real club or night scene using these sounded awful! It was a good thing that we also do a quick run through before we do the real show; we had a chance to use them with just some general bar sounds going on in the back ground it picked almost everything up. We ...

  • Excerpt: I only bought one, a long, long time ago. I personally use it as backup mic to record very high-output sources quickly and without hassles.... In short, bass, kick drum or guitars when the other mics are already taken... It sounds like shit, but it gains me some time when recording my personal demos. I have never cleaned it, it has fallen lots o...

  • Excerpt: Small microphone that is used for everything: strong enough to mine 5 years and fell a couple of times ... practice with his switch, goes to the chorus, the snare drum for my sax it works ... I would not use it in the studio but repeated or in a bar it's good.

  • Excerpt: I have heard it live and in recordings with a small behringer mixer and the price matches its quality. Very good mic to start out without going broke, and there is simply no comparison with other low-end mics. It's worth pointing out that it's sturdy. I give it 10 due to its value for money and sturdiness.

  • Excerpt: I bought it about 6 months ago and I think I'll resell it. The output level is incredibly weak. At first I thought it was a problem with the mixer. Plus, it's very sensitive to feedbacks. There's simply no point in comparing it with other mics as the sm58 or beta 58! Spend another $30 or $40 and get yourself an sm58.

  • Excerpt: All-purpose mic. I use it for live vocals (I don't have a home studio). It can be used for anything and I have already used it as overhead for drums without any issues. I've used it for 1.5 years for vocals. I play keyboards in a rock band and I sing backing vocals besides singing a coupe of songs myself. I'm no pro and hav...
