The E 865-S 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-20 kHz reproduction and superb transient response. Its smooth super-cardioid 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. The microphone ships with a pouch and mic clip.

I have used a variety of excellent dynamic mics over my decades as a lead vocalist. Quite a few years ago I was at a concert and saw the lead vocalist using an e865s. The sound was stunning. I saved up some money and bought one. Best investment I ever made. It instantly gave my voice more presence. It solved some feedback issues. It is an amazing mic. I read a lot of reviews that say vocal mics are as distinctive as each person's voice. There is some truth there but overall, you can be fairly sure the e865 will be an amazing upgrade over ANY dynamic mic. I have a friend who bought a pricey Heil dynamic. I used it and it was nice but my Sennheiser e865 just blows away the Heil.
