"Not for live use!"

Sennheiser e 815 SPublished on 12/29/12 at 00:49
The sennheiser e815S is a dynamic vocal microphone that is very affordable only costing 130 dollars for the 3 pack of them which is what I bought. At first I thought I was getting a great deal on a great microphone but after using them I noticed they were not very good with handling stage noise. I ended up returning them about a week after I purchased them because if they cannot handle stage noise then I will have no use for them.

OVERALL OPINION

If you are in a completely silent room using them the sound was not too bad, but in a real club or night scene using these sounded awful! It was a good thing that we also do a quick run through before we do the real show; we had a chance to......

OVERALL OPINION

If you are in a completely silent room using them the sound was not too bad, but in a real club or night scene using these sounded awful! It was a good thing that we also do a quick run through before we do the real show; we had a chance to use them with just some general bar sounds going on in the back ground it picked almost everything up. We knew that we could not use them when it came time to go live so we sent them back and got a refund.
These would be great practice mics because they are small and have decent quality but if you want to use them for performance I just don’t think it is possible to use them because of everything they pick up. It will make you sound horrible using these on a stage with noise going on all around them. I do not recommend getting these for live use, I do however think it is a great practice microphone and if you are getting 3 of them for that price it is almost a steal. Just do not use them for a real live show or it could end your career quickly. On the upside they do have an on and off switch on them and they are rugged and built to last.

OVERALL OPINION

All-purpose mic. I use it for live vocals (I don't have a home studio). It can be used for anything and I have already used it as overhead for drums without any issues.

I've used it for 1.5 years for vocals. I play keyboards in a rock band and I sing backing vocals besides singing a coupe of songs myself.
I'm no pro and haven't tested other mics so I only give it 8 points, even if I am very satisfied with it. It looks......

Vocal mic (backing vocals, especially)

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it about 6 months ago and I think I'll resell it.
The output level is incredibly weak. At first I thought it was a problem with the mixer.
Plus, it's very sensitive to feedbacks.
There's simply no point in comparing it with other mics as the sm58 or beta 58! Spend another $30 or $40 and get yourself an sm58.

e815s mic for live singing or recording, it lacks some breadth but it's the best at this price point.

OVERALL OPINION

I have heard it live and in recordings with a small behringer mixer and the price matches its quality. Very good mic to start out without going broke, and there is simply no comparison with other low-end mics. It's worth pointing out that it's sturdy.

I give it 10 due to its value for money and sturdiness.
