      Comments about Shure SM58-CN - Cardioid Dynamic Microphone:

      I purchased two of these microphones for church use, primarily vocal music and spoken word. The construction quality and durability are great. And the sound for voice is very good. I especially like not having to worry about an occasional drop or bump.The included cable is satisfactory, but it has a stiff jacket that prevents it from staying flat on the floor, creating a tripping hazard. I would probably purchase a different cable with a soft elastomeric rubbery coating that will stay flat on the floor. I marked this purchase down one star because of the cable quality. The microphone is excellent.

      Rugged Utility Mic!

      By David

      from Michigan

      Comments about Shure SM58-CN - Cardioid Dynamic Microphone:

      This mic is built like a tank, very rugged and tough. Bought two of these to use in general purpose church vocal music and spoken word. I like the design and the audio quality. The output level is relatively low, partially due to not being a condenser mic. Make sure you have loud sound levels or good gain in your preamp.

      The included cable is fairly stiff, and it will not lay flat on the floor like a good elastomer-based cable. I might skip the cable and buy a good quality cable separately next time.

      Comments about Shure SM58-CN - Cardioid Dynamic Microphone:

      Novice at home recording - this mic is great for an easy and top-quality vocal sound. Can't be beaten at the price point. I'm not sure if the mic is great at much else other than vocals which is annoying if you're on a tight budget and want a single all-purpose mic. SM57 is probably better in that respect (I've heard it can get a decent rock vocal sound)

        The industry standard. Very durable, great value. Not THE most hi-fi mic available, but VERY good sound, and good feedback rejection. Most importantly, it can take a droppin' and keep on rockin'!

          Plugged the mic into the cable that came with it, then got a little adapter for next to nothing. Plugged into the line-in/mic slot and I was away. The sound came through very clear and not much latency. Brilliant.

                  Comments about Shure SM58-CN - Cardioid Dynamic Microphone:

                  The 58 is the workhorse of microphones. You can put it in front of anything and it won't let you down. It's not always the best choice if you have other mics available, but if this is all you have, it's still a good mic to use. This one comes with a cable for a few dollars more, which is worth it, especially if you're buying many of them at once.

                  I bought five of these to keep in my inventory for rentals and the occasional musician or speaking gig.

                    Comments about Shure SM58-CN - Cardioid Dynamic Microphone:

                    The SM58 is our microphone of choice when voice recording. I teach from beginning to advanced students in high school media production classes and this mic can handle them all. It's great for beginners that haven't learned about accidentally recording background noises yet. With its cardioid pickup pattern, it helps to eliminate unwanted sound while isolating what they do want to hear. In addition, it also cuts down on handling noises for the students that are still a bit careless with holding the mic. It also continues to be the best choice once the students are ready for more advanced projects wherever voice recordings are concerned. I have been using the same SM58s that I purchased when I began teaching seven years ago and they continue to perform as well as they did back then.
