Sennheiser e865 Handheld Supercardioid Condenser Microphone
The e865 appeared on our recommended list for Handheld Live Vocal Mics from April 2020 until April 2021 when it was out-ranked by other mics.
Sennheiser aims to bring the studio sound to the stage with the e865 handheld condenser microphone.
The e865 was tweaked to bring that broad spectrum large-diaphragm sound to a handheld mic without feedback by using a tight supercardioid pickup pattern.
This ensures only the sound in front of the mic gets picked up to minimize bleed and avoid feedback.
If you have a disciplined mic handling technique and the pitch of your voice doesn't need excessive warming up, then this could be a good mic for you to get into higher quality condenser sounds.
