The 5009 is a super cardioid mic, this mic will provide you with great quality for a speech or some sort of simple audio or spoken audio. In my opinion its not really a mic for music, and none of the 5000 series from Sennheiser really where. They are mainly speech mics or event mics that are pretty expensive also. No matter where you look if you can still find one of these on the shelves it will still cost a good amount of money because of how good it really is and they actually don’t manufacture the 5009 anymore it has been changed. When you purchase this mic you will get a carrying case which is a must have because if you are doing speeches chances are you are traveling a lot and you need to protect your investment because if you drop this mic one good time it could be the last time you will be able to use it. I have had several bad experiences with dropping Sennheiser mics and they rarely ever work after that one good drop.
Very easy to use, no set up at all. Basically just a plug and play type of situation. It has a nickel color finish with some base back as well. This mic is very good for clicking a popping noises. Because it is used for speeches you will be having some popping and clicking issues with a lot of mics that are used in speeches but they have developed a technology for this series that pretty much eliminates those pops and clicks.
Very good mic, though its no longer made you may still be able to find one somewhere. You will just have to keep your eye out for one. If you find one, grab it up if you are in need of a mic for speeches or events. It will work great for you.
