Of late there are quite a lot of new technology on the market in the microphone field. I really don't like switches all over my mics. All you need is for someone to change something on the mic to turn a live proformace into a nightmare. I will stick with this mic.
This mic is very clear when used correctly. It cuts through music so the singer can be heard clearly. Gain before feedback is also very good. This mic sounds good for all voice applications. I am using a makie board and JBL speakers and the new crown amps. It important to watch the trim if someone is screaming into any mic. This one stays clear in most applications.
Some other companies include a cable with their mics. Was surprised that it was an extra exspence.
Have had only one fail. It was dropped on a cement floor. I went and bought another one. Fit and finish are very good.
Manufacturer Support
Have really had no reason to contact the company. Both this mic and the Shure wireless have worked flawlessly!
The Wow Factor
What appeals to me is the fact that it works very well. It is also very durable.
