Solid
Nikolay6708, 16.03.2021
Solid mic, one of my best mics. Use it very often when i lead worship at my Church! Solid made and looks nice, sound is decent for my voice. I'm not a professional singer, so can't tell a lot more about the specs but like the sound and i'm happy with the AKG's mics, have few of them and so far so good! Reccomend

great quality for the mney
06.03.2016
Had this a couple of years now, this is a good vocal mic for the money.
Gives a faithful reproduction of with live vocals and very little problems with feedback despite sitting over a monitor frequently.
The switch is clearly useful as an alternative to desk muting, and as a traditional band performing tunes for dancing too it is very handy to switch it off to get rid of background noise and just turning it back on when singing. Still works well even after a couple of drops!
Definitely recommended.

Better than the SM-58
27.01.2016
A great vocal mic that suits a higher voice. The bass response from these mics is quite high which can enrich a higher voice. I wouldn't advise getting one if your voice is already quite bassy.

From my experience the cardioid pattern is a bit tighter than the SM-58 which means you will need to be facing directly into the mic more than an SM-58. This reduces the chances of feedback on a properly set up stage. However if you move out of the cardioid pattern your voice will lose volume & clarity quicker than you would with other mics with a larger cardioid pattern.

I have 2 of these mics and use them every weekend. They have never let me down. Have used them for recording vocals, guitars and snare with nice results as well.

A great price for a great mic.

Great sound and visually very good looking Mic
JBell, 11.02.2021
Sound clarity was perfect with no distortion even when shouting down the Mic. Nice to hold and not to heavy. We have used a lot of AKG products and would recommend their build quality and design.
