Sennheiser Electronic Corporation will show three new 800 Series vocal microphones—the E 815S, E 816S and E 817S—at Summer NAMM 2003 (booth #429).
Distinguished by their new and colorful single-unit blister packs, each of the new 800 Series microphones are packaged with either an XLR-XLR cable, an XLR-1/4-inch or a mic clip. The cardioid polar-pattern capsules on all three microphones deliver warm and transparent sound while rejecting rear sounds. Housed in rugged metal bodies, the mics offer excellent feedback rejection.
The E 815S features a silent lockable on/off switch and is a perfect choice for speech, vocal or instrument applications. The E 816S, also equipped with an on/off switch, delivers a high output, allowing it to cut through the mix even when stage volume levels are excessive. And the E 817S is geared toward lead vocalists due to its wide frequency response.
"The affordability, quality and versatility of our new 800 Evolution Microphones will pleasantly surprise a lot of people," said Anthony Buzzeo, Sennheiser's wired microphone product manager. "And with three different models filling out the 800 line, there's something for just about every up-and-coming musician."
MSRP for the units are: 815S, $109; 816S, $119; and 817S, $129.
