Sennheiser E 945

The Sennheiser E-945 is a superb high quality live performance dynamic mic.
Pick-up - It has a super cardioid pickup pattern which helps reduce pick-up of sound from the sides which helps its high gain to feedback figures. What makes this mic so nice is that the off-axis drop off isn't too severe which allows the mic to be easily worked by the vocalist during performance. Some super cardioids have a severe drop off which makes them more difficult for the singer to work.
Build Quality - It is rugged and built like a tank. It could easily survive a few bumps and knocks. It also feels very comfortable in the hand with a good quality heaviness about it. It has a very luxurious looking black body with a fetching metallic blue grill.
Handling - Handling noise is excellently suppressed meaning this mic can be easily handled during performance without anything nasty being picked up.
Tone - Every voice is different so you might have a different view to me, but I found this mic flattering to my voice without it adding any colour. It's actually very difficult to describe, but it's a mic that gives confidence. It has a warm rich tone, while still being very clear and detailed.
Feedback Rejection - As previously stated this mic has a super cardioid pick up pattern which reduces sound pick up from the sides. This helps max gain to feedback if unwanted sound is coming from the sides, but will reduce gain before feedback if the mic is pointed directly to or directly away from unwanted sound. I've had no feedback problems at all with this mic at high sound pressure levels. It also cuts through a mix very well and doesn't need hours spent on eq.
Conclusion - Excellent microphone that offers excellent performance. It sounds great.
For further information, I bought a Shure SM58 at the same time to make a direct comparison and the Senni E945 is my preference, though I'm sure others might prefer the Shure.

Хороший микрофон, со l
?????? 23.03.2021
Good afternoon. My rating of the microphone is 7 out of 10. 1) The first thing that did not suit me about the microphone was its sensitivity, which was significantly less than that of my usual dynamic microphone, which is why I have to raise the gain on my mixer, and therefore there is additional noise and feedback. 2) The low frequencies do not seem to be as well developed as in Beta 58, which I also use. 3) In the low frequencies, there is something that I can not completely cut out on my parametric equalizer without cutting out useful frequencies, because the vocals are not as transparent as I would like. Now I'll tell you what I liked. 1) Despite the above points, the overall sound quality is good, there is something in common with the studio quality. 2) I really like the microphone grille, its weight and the convenience of holding it in my hands. Given the above, I plan to use this microphone for backing vocals in my band, and for the main vocals, I will consider a condenser microphone. All of the above is my subjective opinion, which may change with the time of using the microphone and changing my equipment to a more expensive one (now I use the soundcraft ui 16 mixer)

Best mic I've owned
Alan62 31.10.2019
I've owned a number of dynamic mics over the years but I have to say I LOVE my Sennheiser E945. Great clear sound and fabulous for close mic'ing. I'm one of those singers that likes to get right in the grille and it responds really well. Totally recommend it - although you have to remember that it's super-cardioid so watch your monitor positioning.

My favourite

I have always been a Sennheiser guy. I have used E800 series voc mics and Shure SM58 and beta58/57. And when choosing a new voc mic E945 was my choice and I don't regret it.
I mainly use this mic for vocals, but I think It can do much more!
Firstly I like their look. 5+ Design, black body and a bit blueish/black grille. And when you connect it you know what you have.
The vocals are clear, crisp and with a great body.
The build seems to be super, presumedly will last/work for ages!
I like the bag too what comes with it and the clamp. I like that the bag is soft and will protect your mic really good.

Overall I would recommend it for vocals, propably for pipes(trumpet, sax...) too. Propably will buy more of these in the future!
