  • Excerpt: I know the Celine Dion also uses this mic, don't know who else. I just know my search is over. I have a very dynamic vocal style and this mic suits me to a "T". I don't know anyone who wouldn't like it, unless someone wanted the muddiness of say, an SM-58 to cover up flaws in their vocal timbre, or a funky sound. Singing through this mic is like...

"solid mic for cheap price" - yoTrakkz

Audiofanzine
30 October 2011
  • Excerpt: You should be using a preamp anyway, to get a good heated signal... a preamp will rid you of that cold digital feel you get when recording without one and you've got your phantom power. The mic is cheap, so just drop a little more for the preamp and wha-la. Buy this mic.

" Excellent micro" - maxibrut4

2 October 2011
  • Excerpt: I use it for 6 years with no trouble. Very robust and reliable. I used almost all the other microphones singing. Full of quality, everything is good, I did not see a default (in this class of product). Its design is perfectly suited to its intended use. I would do the same purchase with no problem. Qu...

  • Excerpt: The Sennheiser E 865 is a fantastic microphone at a relatively incredibly low price. The closest microphones in price and class would be the Audio Technica Artist Elite dynamics, but while they are wonderful microphones, they simply function in a different class as the E 865. The best thing to do would be to figure out what you need on your voic...

  • Excerpt: I've had a few days and I had great fun with dj ... I bought APRS have tried several (via lease), such as c535 and AKG SHURE beta 87, and live recording. I am not a professional sound but I think he plays in the same range: a part of the "expensive Swiss" in Contents of micro ... In fact, I opt for it just for the price and I thin...

"Sennheiser E865" - MGR/SH

Audiofanzine
25 April 2006
  • Excerpt: Sing. Got this used Sting Signature E865 over Ebay for about $140 as the principle mic to replace the wirelesses. Not knowing which was better, I also got a Shure beta 87A for about the same money. Both are top of their line condensers and I expected them to sound and work alike. But no! Even without comparing, the Shur...

"Sennheiser E865" - MGR/redneck roundup

Audiofanzine
9 June 2003
  • Excerpt: I recently aquired the e865 from a Lukert Productions, motion picture production company who happened to be a Sennheiser dealer. No one else in the Phoenix area had them in stock, but they had plenty. Interestingly, they said they sell a lot to churches because they're so rugged. Had seen them dropped of scaffolding onto concrete without ill eff...

"Sennheiser E865" - MGR/Bluesrover

Audiofanzine
22 February 2002
  • Excerpt: Purchased from House of Guitars,Rochester,New York for 229.00 I needed a mic that wouldn't need to be equed so heavily in the monitors when playing out live. This mic out performed my trusty sm58 by leaps and bounds. Of course it's a condenser mic so it has a lot more guts than a 58. I used it live for the first time and was ...
