I don’t listen to much Hindi music, let alone Bollywood songs, but if I had to listen to an artist, KK would definitely be at the top of my list. Sure, he ripped Bryan Adams off with one of his hit singles, ‘Aap Ki Dua’, but I have heard him sing non-filmi songs, and the guy sure can belt out a tune. So let me get to the point by saying that KK is now endorsing Sennheiser microphones, which obviously means that he gets his own customised microphone. It’s a little too blingy for my taste, but I say to each to his own.
KK said, “I am very happy to be associated with world’s leading name in sound and audio solutions which has been the first choice of professionals in music industry around the world. Sennheiser is an ideal partner for me to continue my passion of producing great sound for audiences who have appreciated my work over the years. Sennheiser has always been my first choice over the years, as it acts as a perfect partner to my sound & I feel thrilled to be officially associated with this great brand and be part of the Sennheiser family.”
I may not be a big, established singer like KK, but I do like Sennheiser products as well. But my first choice for on stage microphones is definitely Shure's Beta 58 or SM58. I’ve used these microphones for over 10 years, and have never had a problem with them so far.
KK has been using a number of Sennheiser products which include EW G3 3000 in-ear monitors, SKM 5000 microphone with Neuman capsule and also a specially customised crystal embedded microphone with KK's initials.
