I own 945s and 845s and like any mic with any instrument, "it just depends."  The 945 is my go-to mic, but I have two artists whose voices favor the 845.  

The 965 is not at all a combination of the 935 and 945.  It's a switchable pattern condenser mic (similar to the Shure KSM9).  It sounds phenomenal, but a condenser isn't the right choice for certain applications.

That said I just picked up an 835 wireless.  I'm going to get a 935 or 945 capsule.  The band is on ears so I'm not concerned about feeding back from the monitors but sometimes when the mains get close and subs are center clustered I do have to be concerned about that.


If your vocal mic is feeding back in the subs, you need to raise (or engage) your high pass filter.  (Or cut those low lows from that mic on the EQ).

....Someone on this forum said something to the effect that all live vocal mics suck and I'm kind of in that camp.


That was me.

On one gig, I had very low stage volume, so I broke out the VX10, which sounded (as expected) much better than my OM7s (and actually worked for the task at hand - a rarity with the VX10 and KMS105).  But I needed three and had only one.  I had three AT4050 so I tried them.  The improvement was huge.

Hey Adam,

Can you describe the difference in sound, GFB, and off axis rejection between the two?


Tim,

I think I'm going to modify your statement to: the situations that live vocal mics are used in suck (in my world anyway). Smile

Can 900 series capsules be used in 100 series transmitters???

P.S.  I did just pick up that 3-pack of EV PL80a's that Musiciansfriend has for $150 so I am looking forward to using them tonight since I have heard some good comments from people I respect on here.


I used one last night for The Edge guy in a NYC U2 tribute band and liked it for that. I could get it real loud in the wedge and when the guy sang on the mic it was much smoother than the B58 wireless on the lead vocal. I don't have a lot of gigs soon so using on a lead vocal may take a while. Not a bad $50 mic though.

The 945 has been my go-to for a while, a nice mix of GBF and qualities that I seem to like.

to my ears, the 935 is Sennheiser's answer to the Shure Beta58 (I don't like the nasal thing) and the 945 has a "if a beta87 was a dynamic" quality.

In some cases my 865's are the right mic too  Smile
