evolution e 965 now also available as a wireless microphone
The waiting is over: the e 965, Sennheiser’s multi-award-winning large-diaphragm condenser microphone, is now also available as a wireless version. The MMK 965-1 microphone head enables 2000 Series and evolution wireless G3 handheld transmitters to be converted into the highly popular vocal microphone.

We are now very pleased to be able to fulfil this demand.”

At the same time, the microphone has been optimised for use in the toughest live performances. The capsule is optimally protected against moisture and the signal is already converted to a robust, low impedance in the capsule itself.
The double-diaphragm capsule can be switched between a cardioid and super-cardioid pick-up pattern to allow it to be perfectly adapted to the stage situation and type of sound required. The cardioid pick-up pattern provides a very natural sound, while the super-cardioid offers optimum vocal assertion on stages with a high volume level. As the capsule becomes more directional at high frequencies, it effectively reduces spill-over from instruments such as the drum kit and provides generous space for the vocals to develop.
The MMK 965-1 microphone head is part of the evolution wireless ew 500-965 G3 vocal set or, as a single capsule, can be combined with an
