Ok, but I prefer ShurePublished on 12/15/12 at 20:52
I was using this mic a lot back in 2006 to 2007 and it was one of my main microphones because I just did not have money at the time to upgrade. For the price I really did not expect to get much better than this, but after using other microphones that cost a lot more has allowed me to see just how many flaws this microphone has. While I was using it I knew that something was not right but I was in the early stages of my career and just could not put my finger on it. Now that I am more seasoned in recording and have worked with better gear I see what the issues where.
If you are looking to spend less than 100 dollars and need a vocal microphone I prefer going with the Shure SM mics. They will give you a great recording and can be a more versatile microphone than the E825S can be.
An affordable and surprisingly good sound.Published on 09/10/12 at 11:15
Have you ever had a screamer in your studio? The kind of guy that you wouldn't trust to even look at your nicer condenser mics? Well, in most cases that's where your trusty standard cardioid mics come out to play. Give the man a E825S and let him scream and spit all over it, it can take it, and still sound pretty darn good too.
Overall, the E825S is a really solid choice for live applications and can come in handy in the studio. In my opinion it's better than the Shure 58 for vocal and it can hold it's own on snare and toms. For a musician or club owner on a budget it's definetly worth buying one or two, you may very well find yourself buying some more.

With the e825 you wont have to do to much eq at all. Just a little boost on the high end and I usually always cut out the really low end frequencies that you cant hear anyways just to make it sound cleaner and not have all the energy going to wasted space with frequencies that wont get picked up. The Sennheiser E825S is also very well built and light. You can travel with it and take it places without the fear of it getting broke, and even if it does get broke its not like you broke a 500 dollar mic. Its really cheap to replace which is always good because over time stuff will cause problems. I haven't been using this mic long enough yet to experience any problems and hopefully I wont for a long long time.

The 825 has a cardioid response, which is typical. I found that the microphone does actually offer a nice level of clarity, even over some of the standard microphones (but then again, everything seems less muddy than an SM58 when I have a richer baritone voice). It also has an on/off switch, that never stops irking me for the simple shallow cosmetic preference I have.
The Sennheiser E 825 S is Sennheiser's entry level microphone for stage work. It is my no means a terrible microphone in this regard; in fact, I find that it is actually quite comparable to even some of the less budget oriented microphones from other companies. That being said, at its price point, it cannot compete with the next microphone up which is a standard: The Sennheiser E 835 is a staple microphone for many people. Several people believe that the Sennheiser E 835 kills the vaunted Shure SM58. So maybe the E 825 S was not built to compete with it, but at only $20 less new than the E 835, it sure seems like it is trying.
What is rather bothersome about this is that understandably, $20 can stack up over several microphones. However, Sennheiser also sells a three pack of the E 835 for $10 less than three E 825 S microphones would cost. So, there is very little reason to settle for this and not go for the next one up.
