The Sennheiser e845 is a dynamic mic with a neodymium magnet element and a supercardioid polar pattern, both of which improve the mic's Max SPL handling (dB).

These features also reduce feedback and ambient noise, even at higher volumes.

In addition, the mic's capsule is sitting on a special internal shock mount that helps minimize handling noise.

  • Type: Dynamic
  • Polar Pattern: Supercardioid
  • Frequency Response: 40Hz-18kHz
  • Impedance: 350 ohms
  • Maximum SPL: 150dB
  • Applications: Live and recorded vocals

Pros

The most commended quality of the Sennheiser e845 is its natural sound and feedback resistance. Some even describe it as being comparable to the quality of more expensive microphones thanks to its added clarity in the higher frequencies. The e845's shape and weight also appealed to many singers.

Cons

Musicians and audio engineers have reported few complaints about this mic.

Overall

With its enhanced high frequency presence, the Sennheiser e845 is ideal for female and male tenor voices.
