Sennheiser E 945
Tony2565, 12.03.2016
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.

The finest vocal mic around
Radoslaw L., 13.10.2020
It puts other mics to shame, and i've used everything from crappy cheap mics to the industry standards such as the SM58 Audix om3 - om7 and as much as I like the Audix ones, this just blows me away every time.. The clarity of the voice is excellent, it seems like it adds naturally a lot more direct head room, it makes the vocal sound big and precise. It's perfect for live performances!

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.

Better Than Shure Beta 58?
Graham3281, 03.02.2015
I have used Shure SM58s and Beta 58s for many years, and they are great industry standard mics.

In the last couple of years I have ocassionally used our female singers Sennheiser E935 mic and have always been impressed with the apparent greater clarity, crispness and volume, and it seems marginally less susceptible to feedback.

I bought the Sennheiser E945 several months ago.The sound quality is exceptional and to my ears, surpasses my trusty Shures. The build quality is superb with a nice weighty feel. I now use the Sennheiser E945 in preference to my Shure and Beyer Dynamic mics.

Completely happy with this quality and price of this microphone bundle, together with the Thomann delivery service (and mic cleaner!)
