      I was taking my time to look for a new stage mic for several months not really needing one before a string of Gigs over the Christmas holiday. I was torn between the classic Shure sm58 and this blue microphone. Not going to lie part of what made my decision was finding a great price at B and H, but boy am I happy I did. Bottom line this mic is as good or better than the shure as far as quality sound. Has great reach and dynamics for belting to whistling, and it looks twice as cool as the Shure. Just holding it you can tell its a quality made tool that will turn heads on and off stage. [...]

      I bought this to use for gigs I play. I play about 2 times a month. I was a little disappointed in the power of the mike. I have a Q7 and it seems to come over the PA at least 20% stronger. It is however impressive to view and comfortable enough to handle.

      Comments about Blue enCORE 100 Dynamic Handheld Cardioid Microphone:

      This enCORE 100 is comparable to the SM58, and moreso to the XM8500. One definitely plus that has it standing out among these competitor mics is a greater vocal presence in the lower (baritone / bass) range. Built like a rock.

            An excellent Microphone at a great price. Will be doing my first job with it this week when I compare it to the Audix Mic I've been using. A bit heavy, but very solid feeling. Sounds wonderful during rehearsal at home. Received it very fast and well packed.

              Besides sounding better than a 58, it's a BEAUTIFUL mic. Can't beat the price either. Very sturdy & comes in a fuzzy little bag that polishes the mic.

                I use this microphone for podcasting and it is terrific. I'm well aware that there are more expensive microphones that would be better, but for the price I can't complain at all.

                But you'll need a pop filter with this. If you don't have one, you'll get those unprofessional-sounding air puffs.

                  Comments about Blue enCORE 100 Dynamic Handheld Cardioid Microphone:

                  I recently purchased this mic and received it in a couple days - Thanks B&H...It is a great choice. I've had a 58 and in a head to head the Blue sounds a lot better to me. It brings out the highs better and is not as muddy as the 58. Not to say the 58 isn't a great mic - we all know it is - but the 100 seems to be even better.

                  My voice is in the baritone to tenor range and the 100 really added some sparkle to the upper dynamic range. If you're a female singer or have a high voice, you may not get the same result - it may add a little more than you need, but for the average males voice I find it hands down a better choice than the 58. It has some depth that similar mics lack and you know its high quality coming from Blue.

                  I'm planning on getting an Encore 300 in the near future.

                  I definitely recommend this mic for live sound - and in a pinch, it would probably be decent for recording, as well.

                    I purchased this mic specifically for live close speaker performances. I use a neumann 105 for higher end concerts, but need a low feed solid mic that could get banged up a bit that wasn't as mid rangy as the sm58. This fits the bill! I really like it. It did very well with a female voice (unlike the 58 which sounds muddy for females) and did well in both very high pushed R&B range and a mellow mid and low range with jazz and blues. You'll also notice that is quite a bit more substantial. It has a nice weight and feels like it's made with real quality materials. If you're looking for a workhorse that is going to get weekly use, this is best bet in this price range that I've found (and I've looked). It also come with a nice lined bag, so it doesn't get banged up in your gig bag. The Blue enCore 100 is a great choice.

                      Having been a long time machinist in my past I notice the second I unpacked this mic that it was built like a Sure SM57/58, maybe better. I have used it for vocals, acustic and electric/amped guitars, so far and am pleased. I think it has a more even tone than my SM57. Better mids and not so boomy on the bass. At about half the cost right now that is saying something. Even at a higher price I think this mic is a good value vs the SM57. My only problem is that I did not buy more of them. If I were micing a drum kit I would be tempted to try these in a multi mic environment. Very pleased so far, but only had it about 10 days. So time will tell, looking good so far.

                          My wife and I compared this to my Shure SM58, and concluded that it is clearer and does not have the midrange bump that makes the 58 seem warm. That doesn't mean it's cold, just accurate. It does have more handling noise than the 58. However, I like it well enough to keep.

                              I play in a duo with a female singer. The Blue encore 100 was a big improvement for her voice over the Shure SM-58 we were using. She has a lot more confidence with the Blue. She feels that she can work less closely to the mic and still get an accurate vocal. We love it!
