Revolutionary
mind if i do, 11.08.2020
A lot of modern singers on stage look for a certain detailed & extended sound. With music styles that focus a lot more on the detail and the shimmer of the vocal, that isn't possible to achieve with most dynamics on the market, because of how limited their bandwidth is & how altered and often untrue to the source they sound.
So, they would naturally start looking at stage condenser microphones, since condensers tend to stay away from that the most.
However, that introduces a lot of other issues. First of all, condensers are prone to feedback. Due to the wider cardioid patterns and how extended condenser microphones are by design, there are a lot more frequencies & a lot more polar pattern spots that could be potential culprits to feedbacking, which also introduces another issue: background noise elimination and leakage, which is also due to the wider patterns of condenser microphones.
Another issue is how fragile and unreliable some condenser microphones naturally are.
With condenser microphones being designed to exhibit higher sensitivity and capture more delicate sources, their capsules are more often than not designed just as delicately, which introduces the need to handle the microphone very carefully. On stage, that could be a bit hard to achieve.

What this microphone does is combine the best of the two worlds: It is still a DYNAMIC microphone, but it is incorporating something special, a neodymium magnet to extend the bandwidth, and also a relatively natural and true response across frequencies while keeping the benefits of a dynamic microphone still: a tight pattern, the reliability, and durability.

However, like everything else, nothing is perfect, and this microphone does come with a few, although easily avoidable caveats.
This microphone is very prone to breathe noises/plosives and to handling noise.
My guess is, since the production focused a lot on the sound itself, the ease of handling and use was overlooked a bit. With a little bit of microphone technique and high-pass filtering though, nothing can't be fixed.

So, all in all, if you're looking for a stage microphone that extends very high and sounds true to the sound source you're putting it against, but don't want to sacrifice the advantages of a dynamic microphone, this microphone does it all and does it amazingly.

A great Microphone for quiet singers
Teutonic Terror, 05.08.2021
I bought this microphone because I am not a particularly loud singer and it was highly recommended. I was not disappointed!

Pros: It's solidly built. Wind/pop filter is internal (and it comes with an extra). It seems to be a little more sensitive than the SM58 it replaced, so if you're not a belter you can still be heard. Its hyper-cardioid pattern makes it less prone to feedback. The price is quite reasonable.

Cons: Because of the hyper-cardioid pattern, you have to sing directly into it; if you're off access even slightly your volume drops considerably. This isn't a necessarily a problem - in fact, it's the whole POINT of the hyper-cardioid - but it's something you need to be aware of, especially if you play an instrument while singing or have a tendency to move around a lot.

As for the sound - I'm not a sound snob or a professional engineer so I'm not qualified (or interested) to make comments about frequency response, "sparking highs" and other such nonsense. When I sing into it, it sounds like me (but louder).

Overall, I'm really happy with it and recommend it highly.

Better than a sm58
Jazznasty, 10.11.2020
Bought it out of curiosity. The frequency response is quite pleasing, for my voice I just need to dip a little bit of 2k, other than that it is quite balanced and natural sounding plus it feels solid

It's perfect for my voice but your results will vary (male vocals with a low register)

I won't be able to review how well the pickup pattern is in a live situation as of yet but I've managed to get it pretty loud with my monitors at home (for testing purposes) it seems pretty tight and hopefully in a few months I'll be able to crank it

Mainly bought for messing about with recording in my (untreated) bedroom, the SM7b is out of my budget/skill level

I've used the SM58, e845 and e945, and their wireless equivalents quite regularly; I really dislike the 58, and sometimes the sennheisers can be quite bright for some vocals, I still think if I had the choice again I'd go for the V7 compared to these for my own use as it matches my voice quite well

Haven't had the chance to try it on others yet but I'm sure the results will be great

Feels really solid
Óran, 28.11.2020
Got this a few months ago and have been using it in practice and to record some demo vocals at home. Microphone sounds great and has a nice top end for a dynamic. Supercardioid polar pattern is great for live use.
