I spotted the fake one immediately, as there are some really obvious flaws. I have an e835 myself. But then again, if you don't have the real one to compare, it would be difficult.
It seems like the sellers of the counterfeit/fake microphones have found this video and they don’t like it. People who comment that my video doesn’t describe the sound and only describe the looks of the mic are missing the point of the video. If I am going to buy a Sennheiser microphone, I want to buy a Sennheiser microphone.... not a fake microphone with the Sennheiser name stamped on it. The sound quality is not the same. Why sell a counterfeit microphone? If you want to sell a cheaper microphone, don’t put the Sennheiser label on it.
OK, you insist on “cosmetics” doferences, but not even tried to compare SOUND of “fake” and “real” microphones???? We need that, not only vew and cosmetic details!
did it sound like the original?
This video just helped me to not buy a fake one from WISH.com... These microphones are regularly anywhere from $179 to $200 and i thought i was getting a great deal for $40 and I almost put it in my cart until i saw this video because i noticed the blue and grey box was the same one they had on the WISH.com website. Thank you for making this I appreciate it!
Thank you. Unfortunately, there are still ebay sellers selling these. BTW, how does this fake e945 perform next to the original? Is it worth say 10 dollars?
I guess I got duped then, which surprise me since the quality is very good on the fake one.
Big big thank you! I was just about to buy a fake 945 and you saved my nerves and my money.
Thanks for doing this.
Sennheiser is one of the most counterfeited mics, never ever buy one from eBay. Always from a clearly authorized dealer. Good to know you got your money back.
It isn't a FAKE microphone; the mic is very much REAL and operational. The more appropriate word is COUNTERFEIT.
It may be a (FAKE Sennheiser).
today, Sennheiser e945 on wish : 29 euros :)
Thanks for your video. It helps so much. I think its better to buy from authorised dealer.
The real question here is how does it sound compared to the Senn? Because now they're selling on Ebay as an E945 Without the Senn logo for $22 from China $32 from US. If I can get a decent Senn E945 clone for that price, guess where my hard earned dollars are going? Its worth it just to find out how they compare...
No this video doesn't help. Why did you not test them both???
el sonido es igual?
You explained the differences well. However you never showed us how the fake one works, if it does, in comparison to the real one.
The differences are obvious when you have the microphone in hand.
But how can you tell before buying?
I grabbed four of these off Wish for like $25 a pop. Thanks for the video--was able to confirm that they are, in fact, fakes. I was pretty sure that they weren't the real deal but I wanted to get some cheapo mics for toms and figured that $100 was a small price to pay to be able to mic every tom on our drum kit for demo recording.
your voice is so soothing, would be good for audiobooks
Slim, QUIET, works great. I wanted modern and out of the way. This is it!
Hey! What so you think about using this microphone for streeming and gaming voice-over videos?
Is the mic meant to point towards the sound hole on the acoustic? Or am I just that uninformed?
Well ok if ya just going to run your mouth but not works a crap singing for a deep voiced person,wife loves it I hate the hig sound,is a powerful mic,but like I say,not for a deep voiced person,ok for a talk show sing song,lol.
good for Florry?
I want to believe too 😩
would you recommend this mic in 2020? what about this one vs the sm58?
I can't count how many times I've watched this video. I'm still deciding which dynamic mic to buy. I guess I really need a Sennheiser E835 and Shure SM58 comparison.
I am thinking of using a XLR to USB cable because mixers are too expensive. Will any one of these cables I find on amazon work?
Hey @Podcastage is that keyboard the same mechanical you use in your other videos...like on the D5.... if so, this is the best rejection ! you can barely hear the keys!!!
redo this 2020 version!
I purchased one E835S today with XLR to 3.5MM cable but when connected to the speaker or SONY audio in there is no sound at all. Any interface required?
Definitely a good mic even just for recording for podcasts. I know it’s main purpose is for live performances and being able to block out the vocals going on but this is a solid mic. I find myself liking it better than many condensers especially since those pick up these wet mouth sounds I make
hey man! thank you! this is such a really nice review :) cheers!
Why don't you compare it to the other mics in the similar price bracket?
Bought from official distributor. In 2020 they went cheap, package is different and mic do not have "Made in Germany" on the mic's body. I thought that it is countrafeight. But seems to be not - as well as on official website its different labeling now. This is sad.
Sucks for plosives. Yikes. Your videos have come a LONG way bandrew.
It's a bit plosive sensitive
Hey bandrew , Ihope all is fine. Sorry for the n00b question, but i bought a Sennheiser e835 like this one for my daughter and I am also using it through a scarlet interface, but the 212 model. I want to use it to record my daughter singing on garageband. The issue I am having is that I am having to turn the GAIN on the interface all the way to the MAX for the Mic to capture her voice. Is this normal or there is something else i need to look for? Thanks
I have the senheiser and it doesn't make any profit, so much so that I have to stick to it to make it sound good. Do you know how I can fix it?
Nice review. Very thorough. Thanks.
Honestly, I think that mic sounds better than any condesor mic you have tested that I have listened to. And I disagree about what you said about spoken word. I thought it sounded great for your video.
I ned a mic for flute , hamonica and singing. NOTHING fancy . I'm in between Shure beta a 58 and Sennheiser e945. Had a Shure sm 58 before ( got stolen) , it worked fine but would like to try something a little better .Thanks in advance for any answer.
Can u connect this to a Pc?
Is there any better mic for live vocals? I’m talking feedback rejection, clarity (for a tenor/baritone male voice with less sibilant articulation); but still somewhat full.
Wow ur voice is so good😯
0:29 On the audio interface, why is the mic setting on Instrument?
does it work with a Focusrite SCARLETT-SOLO-3RD-GEN USB Audio Interface ?
E845 vs. AKG D5 - direct comparison please?
So there's E835, you have done that, but it's a cardioid.
The E945 is supercardioid so it's more comparable technically but it's not the same price range, much more expensive.
The E845 is also supercardioid and closer in price to E835 and D5 (though still a lot more expensive than D5 in Europe), so it appears to be the most comparable.
Thank you for the review. It was informative!
Hi earthling pal ! What kind of microphone would you suggest to someone who have a "bassy" voice like... Simon Parkes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDZVC725TIQ) per example. apart that he could use voicemeter banana to tweak his tone ? Sennheiser mics seems to give more clarity to voices IMHO...
Hello, i'm Youtuber that makes Piano & Vocal Covers, what mic would you recommend for me :) will this one do? ❤
Hey you should review the Audio Technica ATM 410. It’s roughly the same price as the Shure Sm 58 but I personally prefer the sound of it. It’s much better suited for tenors.
After all it is a vocal microphone, so no surprise that is where it is performing the best! It is not designed to put in front of a guitar amp or guitar, you would use different microphones or a DI input for that!
You are fun to watch :) Good presentation. Useful!
Hey Podcaststage, I have an option only to purchase shure 87a, Shure sm57, Senn 845s & e945 for podcast, ukulele sound recording and voice overs, which would you recommend out of these 4 options? Thanks and great videos!
does it have noise reduction or it's kinda like those condenser microphones?
Hi man!I just want to ask you if is better these Mic or Rode nt1 or Rode Nt1a to my HOME STUDIO to record RAP VOCAL because there is a little difference in price...I want the best mic for my HOME STUDIO but is not acostically treated
Shure beta 58a its better
