Title: Which sennheiser mic would you like to see on sale next?
Post by: Richard Turner on March 28, 2018, 08:49:52 pm
Which mic would you like to see sennheiser promo next during the 20 years of evolution promo?

I'd like to see the 906 at a nice price

If they do the 835 at $49.99 I think I'll have a mental breakdown though. I'd prefer not to see one of those ever again outside of bingo night at the lions club....

... I‘d like to see my 4 e904s that I ordered for the promo price delivered finally.

It seems like the big online retailers around here have serious trouble getting them from their suppliers. My estimated delivery date was mid march, and still nothing sent.

grrrr....

I believe it'll only be the Evolution series. Nice mic, though.

Interested to see which others they put on sale, though.

Hah!

My retailer recently told me their anticipated arrival date is late April (27th-ish, but who's counting?).

Makes one wonder why Sennheiser chose to run a promotion without stock on hand...  Moving to a pre-order production model?  "Future Clearance" mode?

Waiting for my four e904's as well,

Dave

EDIT:  to answer the original question, I'd like to have a couple of MD421's in the locker - at half price, of course.

The promo from Sennheiser is running all year. It will be a different Evolution series mic on sale for $99 every month.

Feb – e865
Mar – e904
Apr – e902
May - e906

So far they have outsold inventory and production capacity. Sennheiser is working to limit massive orders and ramp up production so that more dealers can offer this promo and to protect market price down the road.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm doubting there will be as much quantity demand on the 902's . Most everyone seems to have ordered 3-8 pieces of the 904

Already have one.  Don't need any more.  Might consider a couple of e906's in May.

Whatever Sennheiser's intentions, it would seem they are lowering the market value of these mics and are likely killing the market for the "more expensive" e6 series (unless someone needs them right away).

This makes more sense when there's a new, improved model on the horizon and manufacturers are just trying to clear old inventory.

Yes, which is why we no long purchase MD421.  I have a desk drawer full (literally) of non-working MD421 that would cost as much to repair as to replace.  Given their apparent relatively fragile nature and shittiest stand adapter EVAH, we won't replace them.

Got my 904's today, ordered the 902. Just cant say no at the price. buying for less than it will be worth used in 5 years time.

Title: Re: Which sennheiser mic would you like to see on sale next?
Post by: Joe Pieternella on April 03, 2018, 05:40:34 am
Hmm 935 or 945
Don't see 914/965 happening although I would be all over them if they would. Not that it matters because the sale appears to be limited to North America.

Talked myself into it that way, too.  Sweetwater's already backordered on the e902, so I guess we're not the only ones.

I went through a UK distributor, Gear4Music, after Thomann (Germany) said the e904 was back-ordered and it'd would be weeks before they got stock. They were willing to honour the discount, though, so don't lose hope :)

I'll enquire then since they both have a Dutch site. Which one agreed to the discount? If the European distributors are stocking at discount prices they are making huge profits per sold mic this year.

On topic: Just found out I could use some 908's too so they are now at the top of the list for me.

Both showed the discount on their websites for the e904. Thomann sold out pretty quickly IIRC. Haven't checked the e902, but if they're not doing the discount for those I'm sure a quick phone call would sort things out for you :)

Which one could buy for $99 pretty much any month of the year.  Too bad.

I'm now wondering if Sennheiser will honor the backordered sale prices or simply cancel them?

Yeah, I was going to order another pair of e906.  I guess not.  To my ears the e609 is an SM57 in a different package - other than form factor there is nothing to distinguish it.

I got lucky with my March order.  I had it in 2 days.

I skipped on the e902.  I already have a beta 52A, a D6 and a M88TG.  No need for additional low frequency mics. 

I'm going to see how my may order goes.

Thanks Scott.....I ordered a couple at $99.95 through Vintage King before they put the price back up -  a store I was not familiar with. I was holding my breath a bit but did get confirmation later on yesterday.....So now I wait.

Vintage King is the real deal.  If you need a 50k classic compressor that was in the room when Sir. McCartney sneezed they are your guys.

Good for you. 

I was stunned the guys that send candy with the orders matched the price before they took it down.  That was an expensive mistake.  I was very impressed at both companies valuing business relationships over a few bucks.  We need more of that in this world.

I agree.  Just disappointed my "candy" rep didn't notify me after we'd already had that email discussion earlier in the morning (ie. I'm a buyer @ $100, NOT at @ $190).

Good job Deb!!!

I have a couple, but was hoping to get another one.
BTW, the other day we put a 906 on a Cajon and it sounded GREAT!
So much so that the cajon owner (cajowner?)is planning to get one for himself.
Have had success with them on bass cabs too.

Thanks Dave .... I have 1 x 906 and 1 x 609 already. I got the 609 first a few years ago but these days it gets used for iem rehearsal and I take out the 906 for live. I only use the 609 at shows when I need to mic up more than one cab. I have been looking for another 906 - smoother tone than the 609.
Actually, I didn't really expect to get 2. It happened by mistake...
So....website kicked me off just as I entered the last of the credit card information.  Normally I would just call them to confirm whether the order went through or not before processing another one but I didn't want to miss the deal, so I quickly checked my the account online and it said zero orders so I ordered again.
Then after about 5 minutes, everything caught up and I got 2 confirmations together in my inbox. At that price, I'll keep them both and sell the 609 ( once the sale is over - LOL)

Good to hear it works well on bass cabs.

Quick question on the e906. I find with the one I already have that if I use the 1st position presence boost, it sounds just like the e609 which can be a bit harsh sounding. I tend to use mine flat as I like the slightly darker sound. I find the 3rd position too dull for most applications so far. Do you guys play around with the settings on the mic at shows or do you mainly use it flat?

I'm not sure if this is part of the ongoing Sennheiser deals or just a coincidence, but the e965 seems to be going for $499 right now through most major dealers.  I'd love to get a pair at that price, but right now that $998 needs to stay in my dLive fund!

$499 is the new MAP on the e965, per the dealer price list. You will be able to get them for that price for the foreseeable future.

I'm not sure if this is part of the ongoing Sennheiser deals or just a coincidence, but the e965 seems to be going for $499 right now through most major dealers.  I'd love to get a pair at that price, but right now that $998 needs to stay in my dLive fund!

Price on the e614 is shown as $99 at the candy giving store. Just put a pair on order for 99 ea.

Didn't see any other eTailers offering that price (but, the month is young), so I added a pair to my backorder list.

Can always use another pair of SDC's.

Anyone think the e914 will go on sale?

e614 @ $100 is a great price, considering getting a few for OH/hat, but I'd rather have 9 series as it's 'better'

I thought the e614 was the deal in May or June.  Don't remember which month, but the mic was on sale for 1/2 off.  I bought a pair.

Sweetwater has the e614 for $100 today, as does B&H Photo while GC and other stores are still showing $200, so I'd say it is the e614 at 1/2 price for September.  I don't really need more condensers, but......

Weird thing is, B&H had the 614 for $99 last month. I bought ta couple of them because, for that price, how can you go wrong?

Another Labster posted that the e614 was the August deal, so I am late to the party and Sweetwater is behind in updating their prices.

I'd prefer 914's but the price on 614's this month is really quite tempting....

After suffering extreme backorder-itis, I'd wager Sennheiser is featuring whichever microphone they stand a chance of supplying in a timely fashion.

This evolution series promo has helped build my mic locker but I'd be hurting if these were mission-critical items.

You might have a look at the AT-4041..
I bought 4 back in the 90's, and no regrets.
Quite similar to the 4051 (I looked before buying) but a bit easier on the wallet.

The October Mic of the Month is going to be the e935 and e945 for $99.95 each.

I just placed an order for all three (those plus the e614s) for my retail stock, so if you need some, lemme know. :-) Or, you know, your normal dealer, I guess. *sighs*

I think shipping costs may be prohibitive to get them to the UK.
You seem a bit down, though. Everything okay?

I'm thinking seriously about swapping out my EV N/D767a mics for some e935 or 945s. The EVs aren't as smooth in the kHz range as I'd like, and a 935 in brand-new condition just looks so classy...

Does anyone know if the e965 will be on offer?

The 865 was on special back in February. I am doubtful that the 965 will run, but there are two more months left.

Fair enough.
I'll probably stock up on the dynamics, and suffer the cost if the 965 comes up. I'd probably only want one or two...

It's the e935 AND the e945 this month. (Otherwise I don't know why they let me order a bunch of e945s for a discounted rate... haha.)

The 935 is much smoother sounding than the 835.
I'm changing over to the 935.

That said, I ordered a couple of 945s yesterday and got a call back saying they only had one left.
Then they informed me that Senny is replacing it with a new, lower priced version.?!

Both Tim and I have both the e945 and e935 in stock. I can't speak for Tim, but I've got 11 e945s on the shelf.

... Or we could order through fellow LAB-sters. I'm sure Ray, Tim and others would appreciate the business, and it has to be said that they're doing us all a huge favour in telling us what's coming up.
I was looking around for a next-step-up in vocal mics (currently running EV 767s), so it was great to know that the e935s were on their way.




First e935 arrived today. I'm taking it to the weekly open mic tonight, and will report back on how it does. There'll be an EV N/D767a on the other stand, and I'll be encouraging people to try both.

If any of the dealers happen to be talking to a Sennheiser rep, I'd appreciate knowing why it's only the e935 on offer here in the UK and EU, but it looks like the USA gets the e945 as well.

Quite possibly.
However, Thomann (large audio retailer, based in Germany), is also missing out on the 50% off sale for the e945. I'm wondering if it's a regional thing, or if someone high up has missed a memo.
