In the aughts, Sennheiser expanded its line of live performance microphones with the evolution 900 series, which included three models geared toward vocal performance: the e 935 dynamic cardioid, e 945 dynamic supercardioid, and the flagship e 965 large-diaphragm condenser (priced at $1,050 list, $699 street) reviewed here.


The e 965 is a high-end condenser microphone that employs a dual-diaphragm design, allowing for switchable polar patterns. It is also a “true,” not an electret, condenser design. [True condensers have a bias voltage running through the capsule to polarize it, while electrets use a pre-polarized material. — Ed.] Published frequency response is an impressive 40 Hz to 20 kHz and sensitivity is a blazing 7mV/Pa (or 2.3 mV/Pa with pre-attenuation). Max. SPL is 142 dB un-attenuated or 152 dB with pre-attenuation. [read]
