I have the one that's non silver that cost more... Anyone know the difference between these and the silver? I bought this one about 3 years ago and it was expensive... Black on both sides...

Thanks

I have the original 409's and the 609's I owned sounds closer to it than the silver issue... At least the silver one that was loaned to me for comparison

i'm going to throw in my vote and say the silver one sounds much better than that black.

It is odd that this question was posted when it was. I actually purchased 4 of these mics a while back for toms and guitar. On Thursday of last week I sent an email to Sennheiser asking what the diff was (between all black and the silver face) and this was their response;

Hello,
The Black version have a flatter response across the frequency range. Which is really good for the application of guitars. The Silver version was a newer model released which has a boost in the higher frequency range around 5 to 8 khz, which is really bright.
It is basically two different capsule types with different sound characteristics. Our new model the E906, combines the two types with a switch.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Thanks.

Peace,
Scott Houston

Thanks! So the black one is more like the original... I hear the original is pretty flat...
