Gearank High Notes

Gearank Recommended

The e945 first appeared on our recommended list for Handheld Live Vocal Mics when we published the first edition in March 2016 and it remained there until it was out-ranked by the Sennheiser e935 in August 2022.

It also went on our list for Dynamic Microphones in July 2018 where it remains today.


The Sennheiser e945 has a hum compensating coil to reduce electrical interference and is shock mounted to reduce handling noise.

This is an excellent mic for beginners because being dynamic you don't have to worry about phantom power, it's very good at feedback rejection, and it doesn't have an exaggerated proximity effect like some dynamic mics have - all these things make it easy to use.

The Sennheiser e945 is German designed and built to high standards. If you want a high quality microphone that's easy to use then this is one of the most suitable options for you.
