Fantastic modern sound from a retro look mic
thenewvintageband.com, 15.05.2013
I am the lead singer of a 'vintage' inspired 1940's and 50's band, so having an old fashioned looking microphone is very important for me. I have always had problems with other mic's that looked great but sounded awful and gave constant feedback issues! However...the Shure super 55 deluxe is incredible on every level, it looks amazing on stage, it is built extremely well, very rugged, and the sound is brilliant. No feedback issues even when used surrounded by a 10 piece band! Feels like your singing into a modern shure SM58 but with the classic, cool look. I would seriously recommend this microphone!!

I was not overwhelmed
Labman, 29.07.2020
It's an ok mic but do try one somewhere first to make sure it is the sound you're looking for. I bought & my friend did at the same time, both threads that connect the mic to the stand failed. The threads are made of very soft material & wear out quickly. I had to have a mod done where a threaded sleeve was fitted.

Great Stage Mic But Some Practical Problems
David3164, 18.12.2014
Okay, so there are certainly better sounding, more transparent, mics for use on stage, but few that have the same visual impact and charm as the Shure 55. My daughter sings and the retro looks of this mic are all part and parcel of the show.

The lack of the switch as on the SH55 Series 2 is a shame, but the slightly superior sound of the Super 55 Deluxe is the trade off.

My only issue is that the mic cable XLR socket at the base of the mic is both too close to the mic support point and does not lock well, leaving the insertion of cables a tricky exercise and sometimes a slightly uncertain proposition.

I love this Microphone
Seantech11, 27.09.2018
Brilliant Sound Quality. I have been using a Shure SM58 for a long time and this Microphone "Shure Super 55 Deluxe" is far superior in sound quality. You do have to get close to it for the sound to pickup but I suppose that is the design.

I have one problem with Shure Microphones. I recently bought an SM58 as well and I notice that the Microphone Boxes are not sealed. The box for the Shure Super 55 Deluxe was not sealed either. I wrote to Shure but they didn't give me any satisfaction. Anyone in transit or in a shop or warehouse could take the Mic out and use it and put it back again and the person buying the microphone would never know. Why doesn't Shure seal their microphone boxes?
