I've used plenty of wired and wireless microphones. From the venerable Shure SM58 to the EV N/D series, I've used them all. The Sennheiser e835 competes with or beats each and every one of them.
First of all, this mic is Sennheiser's direct competitor to the SM58, while the e935 is the direct competitor to the Beta 58A. In my opinion, the e835 even beats the Beta 58A. The e835 has nice, crisp highs and deep lows that are necessary to cut through the mix/background noise. Whereas the Beta 58A requires EQ'ing in the lows to get it to sound natural, the e835 can be ran flat across the board and sound like it needs to. I'm one of the lucky people with a not too midrangey, not too bassy voice that can run this mic as-is with the results I want. Of course, you may have to EQ for your voice and the environment, but it won't take much EQ'ing to get the final product you want.
Construction-wise, you will appreciate the feeling of holding a miniature tank in your hand when you use an e835. The weight and thickness of this mic alone lets me know that it could survive more falls than I could imagine--and while I do not plan on taking it out and slamming it to the ground any time soon, I can feel confident that it would survive being dropped if it got into the wrong hands. When I say this thing is built like a tank, I mean it!
You'll also receive a Sennheiser carrying pouch and clip with this microphone. Lots of people who use Sennheiser mics think you won't be able to use the Sennheiser clip on a standard mic stand, but this can be achieved by taking the gold-threaded adapter out of the bottom of the clip with a pair of needle-nose pliers. Now you won't have to spend any extra money on clips or extra adapters.
There are more sophisticated mics out there, but in this price range, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better mic than the e835. This thing runs circles around the SM58 and even sounds better than a Beta 58A to my ears. If you're looking for a vocal mic and you're on a budget, the choice is clear: it's the e835 for certain.

Better than an SM58
Posted by: mesasand from: Las Vegas, NV on
I've used SM58s my entire live sound career. They are still the standard just about anywhere I go. But, when I've had the opportunity to use this Sennheiser mic, I'm reminded how much I prefer it over the SM 58.
I find the 835 has a much nicer top end, a hotter output, and I usually find them for less than the 58s cost. I recommend it wholeheartedly.

Similar to Shure SM-58 - Another good mic option.
Posted by: Happyaccident from: Fullerton, CA on
I'm a Shure SM-58 fan, but I'm always open for something different. This is a good quality mic that matches pretty close to the SM-58. At a club they had these... Sounded clean & clear with the band. Solo, I prefer the warmth of the SM-58. This is just another option. It depends on the PA, speakers, etc. In the club it sounded great with their PA. With my Yamaha PA, sounds a bit harsh/glassy. Less mid - low than the Shure which has more warmth. It depends on the voice, the speakers, the PA EQ. I had to roll off the highs to get the tone I wanted. On my system the SM-58 takes less EQ adjustment to get the warmth I like. The SM-58 sounds more vintage, while this sounds like something new. If I had to own just one, I would pick the Shure SM-58, but this is a great mic for the same price. I've made some good recordings with both. Both have good background noise rejection / feedback rejection for live vocals. It's hard to beat the durability of the Shure SM-58. This seems very well made, but I'm not dropping it to find out.
