Sennheiser's best dynamic mic for live vocals just got better. The super-cardioid MD 431 II has a custom-tailored frequency response to achieve added transparency. A nearly frequency-independent polar pattern offers incredibly high gain before feedback and provides uncolored off-axis response. Its new rugged housing has a steel-mesh grille, a shock-suspended capsule, and a hum-bucking coil. It features a noiseless, magnetic reed on/off switch which is recessed in its handle, and internal electronics for refining proximity effect.

  • Exceptionally good feedback rejection

  • Shock mounted capsule provides very good rejection of handling noise

  • Hum compensating coil

  • Integral pop filter

  • On/off switch (reed switch) can be locked in the 'ON' position if required

    Outstanding vocal mic

    We use these and the e965s for our singers. All are very good, but on some voices either one might be better than the other.


    Extremely smooth sound. Resists feed well. We use four of these for our key vocalists. Awesome on our first and second soprano.


    I prefer no switches. They’re just one more thing to fail or to get used improperly.


    Vocals that need clarity and smoothness. Great for being used near floor monitors. We never have feedback with these.


    I would recommend this to a friend.
