I am so pleased with this purchase! I’ve been considering this microphone for years and finally decided to go for it after reading up more on it. I’ve been singing and recording and was becoming frustrated when I noticed static/distortion during playback when I’d hit big, high notes and a just a lot of the warmth and nuances missing that I was certain I was doing. Tried this microphone for the first time last night and it picked up everything beautifully! My voice sounded just like I felt it and heard it sound while I was singing! And the mic I was using, which was a Pyle I purchased about 5 years ago, had some raving reviews comparing it to the likes of this mic. No way! Not even a little! The Shure SM58 is hands down unbelievably better!!!!! The price is great too. To me, it’s worth much more. LOVE it!!!
