Sennheiser E825S Dynamic Cardioid Microphone Reviews

8/10

good quality for the price

The Sennheiser E825S, at it\'s price point is a very good microphone with its share of positive and negative points.

I\'ve been an owner of one of these since around 2001 I believe, perhaps later. I purchased it at a time when I was doing a lot of studio work and frequent concerts in my hometown area. I had to purchase some good mikes at a reasonable price simply because I didn\'t have the money to afford anything more at that time.

The first thing that I noticed about this microphone is its construction. I was getting used to trying budget microphones that were plastic and felt that if they were dropped, might result in having to buy a new one. This microphone however is cased in a thick metal casing, it\'s heavier than most microphones it compares to, so when you hold it, you feel like there is something there and not just a hairbrush.

for concerts, these microphones were mostly used for vocals, and acoustic instrument reinforcement. I play the sax and for concerts, this microphone is incompatible with my performance style simply because I tend to move around the stage being the lead (that is of course not counting the songs I perform the dual job of sax and lead vocals).
That being said, the sound reproduction of these microphones is impressive for a budget purchase. A drawback however is that it isn\'t the most powerful kid on the block, and can easily be drowned by other mics used if you don\'t balance the sound properly. This happened in one concert when for various reasons, the sound tech was late and we didn\'t have time for a full sound test beforehand.

For lead vocals, it isn\'t the best option for that very reason, you will tend to blend a little too much with the background and people might have a hard time understanding the lyrics (if that is your objective).

In a studio setting, things are a little different. Firstly, in the studio, contrary to live on stage, I don\'t use a clip-on condenser mic for my sax, it captures too much of the instrument\'s key noise and becomes somewhat of a distraction to the ear.

The quality of the sound produced by the E825S is nice but somewhat lacking for a professional studio. I guess that\'s why it isn\'t priced at the studio equipment range. The sound is faithful to the source, however it still lacks a little bit in power, which can be artificially helped out in post and although the sound is smooth, it can sound slightly thin if recording something that has a rich and complex tone.

We have some good sound techs working with us, so they were able to get more fullness through software tweaks to the waveforms, but having a better microphone for recording is always better.

I would say that for someone starting out in the recording biz, who needs a low cost product that will deliver a good result and that is willing to put in a few extra hours to tweak the sound just right; this is the perfect microphone for the job.

Pros: low cost, excellent build quality, faithful sound reproduction
cons: lacks in power, sound can feel thin and unsatisfying if not post-processed

bottom line: its a good microphone for the price, but for just a little more money, you can get much better equipment. Look at m-audio for some nice microphones in the same price range. However, be prepared, those will be condenser mics, if you have a preference for dynamic setups, this E825S is probably your best bet.
