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!
We have a ukulele band and use 6 to 8 mics depending on how many of us are playing. We have Shure SM 58s and these Behringer XM8500 mics. These have a higher output than the Shures. That of course is neither bad nor good just that to equalise the volumes these need less gain. The sound quality appears very similar and certainly doesn't warrant the price differential of over £80. We use our mics in stands so handling noise is not an issue with either. Build quality of these appears as good as the Shures. Time will tell but we are very careful with our mics so these should last a long time. We have had some for at least a year which are used twice a week at our ukulele club and U3a sessions and they are still fine. For the money we can't fault them. If one does break we'd just buy another at this price.
