"Overall, A Rock-Solid, Steady Performer. Audio Technica Pro8HeX."
I've owned the Audio Technica Pro8HeX for 5 years now. Is it gonna sound like an SM-57 or 58? No. But, if you are a singing drummer doing backups, this mic' is a good, solid, if unspectacular option. It never feeds back, it's rock-solid and tough as nails, and light. The sound is a bit thin, but your soundman can dial it in for you by cutting some highs and boosting the bottom end.

Sound
I've owned the Audio Technica Pro8HeX for 5 years now. Is it gonna sound like an SM-57 or 58? No. But, if you are a singing drummer doing backups, this mic' is a good, solid, if unspectacular option.

Features
The Audio Technica Pro8HeX is a wired headset, and has a handy clip for making sure the wire doesn't get in the way. I use mine for backing vocals while drumming with my band, Scream, so I attach the clip to the pocket of my pants, running the wire down my back. There's nothing fancy needed with this mic', and that's what I like.

Ease of Use
The Audio Technica Pro8HeX is a solid, steady mic. But like most other headsets, it's going to sound thin. Your soundman (or you) will need to tweak your channel settings on your board. If you have a deeper voice, like me, you'll need to cut some of the highs and boost the bottom end. It'll never sound like an SM-58, but for your dollars spent, the sound is decent, once you tweak it.

Quality
The Audio Technica Pro8HeX is built like a read more tank. When I first purchased mine 5 years ago, I actually bought 2, one for a back-up, just in case. (I'm somewhat anal like that.) I have yet to break out the backup mic'. The original one has been in use 3 nights a week for five years with absolutley no failures whatsoever.

Value
Great bang for the buck! Best value in headset microphones on the market today.
