Unfortunately, I expected more from this microphone. KSM32 is rugged piece of equipment. The sound has excellent detail in the lows and slightly messy and uneven highs. The big problem, however, is the midrange. The lack of detail in the mids, when it comes to recording vocals creates problems when you want clear tracking in the headphones. This is extremely important so that you can control your singing when recording.
Interestingly, there are currently 2 slightly different frequency characteristics for the microphone on the official Shure page. After a lot of researching, I found that this is a new version of the microphone, which is sold after 2018 and instead packed in metal case, it comes with a plastic one, and that instead of made in USA, now the microphone is manufactured in Mexico. Maybe this is the reason for the different frequency response or just implementation of a new more detailed method of measuring the frequency spectrum. I tried to get used to the microphone because I'm a big fan of the brand, but I couldn't. That's why I'm returning it.

Wow
andreandre, 20.05.2020
Maybe the best and most well built mic for the price. It's not cheap but when you know you payed for each single detail in quality you just go crazy happy!
I think it competes with all the boutique condensers out there and it became my favorite choice for crispy/full/in your face vocals and acoustic guitars. It performs really well on guitar amps. Hell, you can basically mic anything with it. Buy a pair and use it for overheads. Thank you, Shure

A champion
Mpampouras, 10.06.2020
An amazing mic, maybe the best in it's price range especially in the sibilance territory. Warm full sound which can be easily treated in your daw to sound even better. Great for vocals.

Very good for voice
Rattsburg, 11.01.2019
It feets my voice (light tenor); a very neutral sound, what I needed.
