Gearank Recommendation

The e835-S appeared on our recommended list for Live Vocal Mics Under $100 from April 2020 until April 2021 when it was replaced by higher rated mics.

Overview

150dB is loud.

For comparison, a jet engine during takeoff produces 120dB SPL.

There aren't many mics that handle this range of SPL confidently despite being advertised as able to.

The Sennheiser e835 is a mic designed to handle even the loudest of vocals (or other sound sources you might want to record).

The mic capsule is designed to minimize the frequency response change from singing close to far from the mic.

Like to scream and sing loud during gigs? Do you own a venue that hosts bands that do? The Sennheiser e835-S is a great pick for aggressive vocals.

You can see the switchless version and other highly rated options in our guide to The Best Live Vocal Mics.
