Audix OM2 Dynamic Cardioid Microphone

Famous for its feedback-eliminating off-axis rejection, Audix's OM2 stage vocal microphone is a formidable alternative to the common handheld vocal mic.

The American made OM-2 is designed to provide high-quality sound at a breakthrough price. With a bit of added warmth in the lower mid-bass and slight boost in the mid-range, the OM-2 sounds particularly full and clear on a small to mid-size PA system and handles a wide variety of vocal styles with ease.

Just a great microphone, and an awesome price.
The Audix OM2 microphone is hands down the new "Industry Standard" vocal microphone. It's built like a tank, and will stand up to road use gig after gig. This is my second OM2, as the first one seemed to walk away after a gig. I highly recommend the OM2, over that other mic. The OM2 has a great proximity effect, and you will know when you find the sweet spot. If i had to own only one mic, this would be it.
Mine came with a mic stand clip, and carrying pouch.
Ease of Use
Plug it in...
The OM2 is a well balanced, superior built microphone. You can feel the quality the moment you pick it up. The sound is just wonderful. No feedback, and you can run it hot. This mic is well suited for almost any application, or venue.
Best bang for the buck out there.
Manufacturer Support
Never needed to bother with support, i owned my first OM2 for about 5 years. I haven't yet to wear one out, or need support. But they do answer your emails, and phone calls right away.
