The e 965 is Sennheiser's first large-diaphragm, true condenser handheld microphone. The 1" dual-diaphragm capsule means you can access both cardioid and super-cardioid polar patterns with the flip of a switch for almost any vocal application. The e 965 combines the sensitivity of a world-class studio condenser with the ruggedness for long-term stage use.
As a result of their increased sensitivity, condenser vocal microphones are more susceptible to bleed from other sound sources on stage. That is where switchable polar patterns come into play. The e 965 features the option to use a cardioid polar pattern for instances such as a solo performance and a supercardioid polar pattern for performances with a full band where a bit more rejection from the instruments to either side is needed.
The e 965 also comes equipped with additional tools that help improve the quality of your sound and ultimately improve the quality of your performance. The low-cut filter switch allows you more control of the room by reducing low-end ambient noise, right from the mic itself. An integrated shock mount decouples the capsule from the body of the microphone which significantly decreases handling noise when moving around on stage. The switchable -10dB pad is provided for powerful vocalizations which could use a little less sensitivity to prevent the mic from clipping.
