Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I have a Baritone voice. I sing and play acoustic electric guitar. This is my comparison of the Shure SM58 and the Sennheiser e935. I set up both microphones on my Audio Combo + PA System. I set the EQ Flat and gain the same for both microphones. To my ears the e 935 is a bit more responsive and a little clearer than the SM58. Like the SM58 the e 935 is warm and smooth but it's not brittle. The e 935 is more sensitive to speech pressure than the SM58 so it is a more prone to plosives than the SM58. As I adjust more to using the e 935 I think the plosive issue will correct itself. I've also discovered I don't have to be as close to the e 935 as the SM58 to produce rich, warm sound. To be fair to Shure comparing the Shure SM58 and Sennheiser e 935 is not an apples and apples comparison. You can buy a SM58 for for less then the Sennheiser e 935. A more accurate comparison would be the Shure Beta 58A. The Sennheiser e 835 and Shure SM58 would be a fair comparison since both of them cost the same. I decided to purchase the Sennheiser e 935 because of the glowing reviews. I researched the Shure Beta 58A, the Shure 87, Blue 300, Blue 200, Sennheiser e 835, Sennheiser e 935 and a lot other microphones. I read literally hundreds of reviews. Hands down the Sennheiser e 935 consistently received better reviews than any of the other microphones in its price range. But all that matters is what works for you!
