Sennheiser has introduced the evolution e 965 microphone, called the flagship product within the evolution range and its first large-diaphragm true condenser microphone.
Ben Escobedo, associate product manager for the music industry at Sennheiser Electronic Corporation had this to say:
The e 965 is an outstanding vocal mic for enhancing the evolution 900 range. A completely new capsule architecture was designed for the e 965. It produces a very detailed, yet warm, full sound, and offers the mic optimal protection from humidity, so that it’s rock-solid even during very heavy stage use.
A wide frequency range, extensive dynamics, and extremely low distortion make the large-diaphragm microphone stand out from the crowd. The e 965 also features a dual-diaphragm transducer, which allows users to switch between cardioid and super-cardioid pick-up patterns. When the volume on the stage is loud, for example, the vocalist can select the tighter pattern. For high sound pressure levels, users can switch on a pre-attenuation of -10dB. A low-cut filter effectively eliminates impact noise and reduces the low-frequency overemphasis during close miking. Handling noise is efficiently reduced by the shock-mount design, while an integrated pop shield and windshield make the microphone very user-friendly.
The e 965 links the high-performance live sound of the evolution range with the high-definition sound of a large-diaphragm true condenser mic.
The evolution e 965 is available in stores with an MSRP of $878.00.
