Why buy the Sennheiser E835?

The Sennheiser E835 is a fantastic sub-$100, entry-level mic for the new or seasoned podcast host looking to start or add to their mic armory. Here are our top three reasons to buy it:
  • Sound quality — All the podcast hosts we spoke to who use the E835 laud it for the quality of its sound output. They hail it as a savior, particularly when they’re recording longer episodes, as they don’t need to push their voice hard. It does much of the heavy lifting for them.
  • Affordability — Why spend a fortune on a mic when you’re just starting out in podcasting? You shouldn’t have to, and we recommend you start by canvassing the entry-level, <$100 options in the market. Sennheiser’s E835 is one of those. It’s durable and high-performing, without leaving an enormous hole in your budget.
  • Manufacturer’s quality — Sennheiser has been making recording equipment for 70 years and has high-performance built into its DNA. What that means for you in buying the E835 is peace of mind, knowing that you’re using a mic that’s a byproduct of decades of knowledge and experience.
