The Sennheiser e 865 represents the first condenser microphone in the acclaimed evolution series. A live performance, lead vocal microphone, the e 865 easily cuts through high-on-stage levels by virtue of its detailed and natural 40 Hz to 20 kHz reproduction and superb transient response.
Its smooth supercardioid polar pattern rejects feedback with low, off-axis coloration. The e 865 withstands sound pressure levels of up to 150 dB, and deftly suppresses pop noise. While it picks up the finest sonic nuances, the e 865 is at the same time rugged, benefiting from high-quality workmanship and a robust all-metal housing.
