Fantastic value
05.02.2016
It's not an sm58, but is it? It definitely looks the same besides the grill, and it doesn't feel much different either.
I actually carried out listening tests with random members of the public, with dry recordings of speech of 3 microphones. This, the T.Bone MB85, and the original Shure SM58. Rather surprisingly, a larger majority of the public preferred the sound of this one.
I personally find it a tad muddy, but that can easily be gotten rid of.
I also carried out a feedback rejection test between the three microphones. An SPL meter was set up in a static location, and a mic stand was securely set in front of a Martin Audio LE1200 monitor switched into passive mode, powered by a Martin Audio 4.8Q amplifier, and the microphones were all plugged into the same channel on a Midas Pro1. This means the only variable of the test was the microphone and the gain setting.
In short, the microphone which returned the highest SPL without feeding back Won. I'm not sure if it would behave the same in a live band situation, but in this scenario, at least, the XM8500 won!
Very Impressive!

Very good
Hugo Leite, 26.06.2019
Bought this micro to sing at home and in little pubs.
Is not, obviously, an outstanding product in therms of it's purpose but it surprised me positively.
Finishings are very good.
Smooth as the most known and affordable micros used by most people.
Is not a micro to sing heavy stuff but it works perfectly for classic rock and jazz.
I am using it for one year and a half and it's still like new.
Awsome price considering it's caracteristics.
