Gearank Recommendation

The e845 first appeared on our recommended list for Live Vocal Mics from August 2017 until April 2020.

It was also on our recommended list for Dynamic Microphones from July 2018 until May 2021.

Overview

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.

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

Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Dynamic Microphones.
