Best Mic EVER!
Singerrach, 02.05.2017
I love this mic, as a female singer with a powerhouse vocal it can handle everything i give it! Its perfect for the softer stuff too as it doesn't pop! Its perfect for my mic technique which is up close but it lends itself every situation, you really have to push it get feedback and as a live mic its all about the voice x I love this microphone i tried out many across all price ranges and yes this wasn't the cheapest but its perfection. Very easy to eq on any desk. If your a singer get one.

Excellent Quality!
JessicaF, 10.06.2015
This is quite possibly the highest quality microphone I have ever experienced! I was torn between buying yet another Shure SM58 or a higher end microphone - but this microphone is perfect for me. The sound is noticeably flat - a key selling point for these Sennheiser microphones. There is no frequency "boost" in the higher frequencies. This is great news for our sound engineer, as it gives much more opportunity to carve the sound at the desk. The second best thing about this microphone is it's pattern - never have I used a handheld microphone that is so directional! Since buying this microphone, we have eliminated nearly all our feedback problems, which is like a dream come true. Throughly recommended!

A superb microphone
Richard561, 15.05.2013
This is a really great vocal microphoe, with excellent feedback rejection and clear, natural sound. The only downside is the price - quite expensive for a dynamic microphone which will mostly be used for live-sound applications. Looks great and will probably last a lifetime.

Great performer
31.01.2015
Pro-act of 20+ years:
Bought this mic to replace beyerdynamic m88tg, which I still have, and is a crackin' mic to be fair, and there is noticable, but subtle differences to the ear when performing.
Pros: sonically excellent generally, lightweight, very clear in live performances
Cons: Never liked on/off switch on pro mics, overpriced in my opinion, * have occassionally experienced slight distortion/booming when close up (*at high volumes)
Overall I'm happy with the Mic, but might just give the beyerdynamic m88tg a tidy-up refurb :-)
