Sennheiser e 965 Large Diaphragm Vocal Condenser Microphone




High-end flagship condenser microphone with the sensitivity of a studio condenser, but tough enough for the stage. Switch between gentle cardioid and more directional super-cardioid polar patterns. Stellar 40Hz – 20 kHz response.

The advantages of high-end studio and stage microphones are perfectly combined in the e 965: high-resolution, multifaceted sound supplemented by high feedback rejection and an extremely rugged design. The flagship of the evolution series is a true condenser, large-diaphragm microphone that has been developed for professional stage use. Its balanced sound is marked by clarity and sophistication; it gives the high-end a silky gloss and reproduces the lower mids in a warm, well-defined manner. The e 965 responds extremely quickly and transmits even the finest nuances in impressive detail. Depending on the stage setting, the pick-up pattern can be switched between gentle cardioid and more direct super-cardioid. This top model leaves no wishes unanswered in terms of sound, ruggedness and handling.
