Everything else is just standard.
Not plastic, metal. No muffled, mids-centric sound but tight low mids and present treble. No problem with feedback, spill or handling noise; instead, maximum flexibility for the voice: the e 835 is a solid choice for performers. Moderation and singing remain crystal clear and natural, even at varying distances from the capsule. Its extremely rugged construction and uncomplicated handling make the e 835 the first choice for rehearsal rooms, home recording or the stage. It has also become a top seller in its class everywhere that speech intelligibility is critical: lectures, presentations or conferences in auditoriums large and small alike.

This is a very nice microphone. I'm absolutely happy with it!
I host an open mic and had a pair of SM58 mics. A professional vocalist friend clued me to the e835. I now have 4 e835 mics that we use for vocals at my open mic. They also work well for winds. I kept one 58 for harp (harmonica) players and have a pair of 57 mics for guitars, ukes, etc. I run everything through a Midas MR18 mixer, and record it all. People are amazed at the quality of the tracks. Yes, I am little obsessive about sound, that may be why my open mic has a reputation of having the best sound of any open mic in Southern California, if not the country. I have also done some album recording, including a gig with a 9 ft Yamaha concert grand. When we found out at the last minute that we needed to mic the pianist for vocal harmonies, I grabbed an e835. With him playing in the forte plus range, and the e835 between him and the open piano, his voice still came through sounding great with minimal pickup of the piano.
I have always enjoyed singing with Sennheiser mics but these are the best so far I've used comoared to any mic.
