Aria Dynamic Capsule Promotes Natural, Detailed Sound
The enCORE 100s proprietary Aria dynamic capsule is custom tuned by Blue's engineers to deliver natural vocals and balanced highs, along with exceptional detail and clarity. It features internal copper windings, custom wound to Blue's stringent specs for optimal frequency response.

To ensure delivery of the full effect of this professional-quality sound, Blue's proprietary capsule mount minimizes handling noise without pads or filters. It uses a rubber mount and coil weight instead, which minimizes handling noise and keeps your tracks pristine.

In addition, the enCORE 100s cardioid polar pattern delivers impressive off-axis noise rejection and skillful handling of high SPL (sound pressure level), to help keep you in control of your sound.

Stage-Ready Construction for Style that Endures
With an elegant lustrous silver grip and high-polished accents, the enCORE 100s silhouette blends in seamlessly with your existing look--whether that means pop star chic or black-tie formal. And this microphone shows off true Blue craftsmanship with details that include a hand-painted logo and laser-engraved trim ring.

Because keeping up with your performance schedule can take a toll on your gear, the enCORE 100 features a heavy-gauge barrel construction, reinforced grill, and hardened metal-plated finishes, which combine to ensure that this studio-grade performance microphone will look its best and perform to its full potential for years to come.

The enCORE 100 weighs in at a solid 0.88 pounds. It measure 7.3-inches long, and features a CNC-machined grip for deft, worry-free handling on the stage. For secure placement, this microphone comes with a soft-grip microphone clip. And for protection between one performance and the next, it also includes a soft-lined storage pouch.

The enCORE 100 is backed by a two-year limited warranty.

I really didn't know a mic could make that much difference.
J. Puentes
Cosmetically beautiful and sonically amazing, this microphone is made to be extremely durable and it's weight feels very substantial in the hand.

In order of preference I like the Blue enCORE 100, CAD D189, AKG D880, Shure Beta 57a, and the SM58.

I went to a brick and mortar store intent on buying the industry standard Shure SM58 or better. My main intention was to use the mic for live vocal performance with only some limited computer recording using Audacity or Windows Movie Maker.

To quote one large retailer; "The Shure SM58 Mic is world-renowned for its distinctive upper-midrange presence peak that ensures an intelligible, lively sound. Perfectly fits a performer's hand, balanced for total comfort during long gigs. Frequency response is a smooth, vocal-tailored 50Hz-15kHz, and the price is a bargain considering its life expectancy." And of course, "The Shure SM58 mic is legendary for its uncanny ability to withstand abuse that would destroy any other microphone." Those words about the Shure are important because they seem like a paradigm of the comments of most of the people that have reviewed the Shure SM58.

When I picked up the Shure SM58 it felt good in my hand - nicely weighted and very solidly built. I also liked the sound of it; however being my first serious microphone that was bound to be the case.

In the interest of due diligence I decided to try out a couple of other microphones in the same price range. This Blue Microphones enCORE 100 pleasantly surprised me. It was more sensitive than the Shure and boasted a brighter and crisper sound. For the kind of vocal work that I wanted to do (Jazz and Pop Standards) it seemed perfect.

The nail in the coffin was the fact that it is a much more beautiful microphone to look at and it feels more substantial in the hand (it is heavier). The lower price (as of this writing) and the beautiful felt-lined canvas carrying pouch weren't even necessary - I was already convinced after singing a few measures. I am very happy that I purchased the Blue Microphones enCORE 100.

I bought this microphone to record vocal tracks with FL Studio on my PC, just as a hobby.

Blue has been around for many years, and has a good reputation for quality products at decent prices.

This microphone is well-built, certainly looks like it would stand up to lots more abuse than it will ever see at my place.

The main thing of course is how it sounds, and it seems pretty accurate - it reproduces vocals very truthfully to my ears -of course it takes some experimenting to discover the different sounds you can get based on placement...

Only thing I kind of miss is an on/off switch. It's always "live", so depending on your application, that may be worth noting.

If you are looking for a very decent "first" microphone for vocals, you shouldn't go wrong with the enCORE 100.

These reviews here are all subjective. Reviewers are using different mic preamps or mixers, difference processors (if any) and different EQ's, along with different power amps and different speakers. And, of course, the listening environments are different. The environments are anything from a small room, like a basement studio or rehearsal area to a large live venue. So, the only real constant is that we should have experience in comparing this microphone to another one in the setting we are accustomed to with the equipment we are familiar with. I use real-world gear such as a Behringer or Mackie mixer, Carvin or Crown power amps, and Carvin LM5, non-powered speakers for my mains. I use Peavey PR10's for my monitors. I use pretty standard mic cables, like Pro-Co or cables I've made with Belden or Belden equivalent cables. Nothing exotic.

I compared this microphone with an older USA-made Shure SM58 (which has been used very little but mostly kept stored on a shelf), Shure Beta 57a, CAD D189, and AKG D880. In order of preference I like the Blue enCORE 100, CAD D189, AKG D880, Shure Beta 57a, and the SM58. There are of course many vocal microphones in the $100 or near $100 price range that I have not used. I would still like to try some Audix microphones, like the OM2 or OM3 and the AKG D5, which replaced the D880 I have, and an E/V microphone or two. These are all dynamic microphones.

The SM58 is the industry standard and that is because the pro sound front-of-house techs know these microphones and know how to use them. The SM57 and SM58 have been around for many years. They are pretty flat in response compared to most microphones and don't need a lot of EQ (most times).

Wow doesn't say enough. This is one really super nice microphone. The fit and finish is of the highest level of craftsmanship and quality. I was just floored when I received this mic. Then came the putting it to work and the sound reproduction quality. It is smooth and clear, crisp and true. I have other brand mics and never realized how poor in quality of sound they really were until this one got plugged into my amp. I am very happy I choose this microphone. It is even better than my trusty Shure SM58.
