Consistently the first choice of performers around the globe, the SM58 vocal microphone is a genuine world standard and a true audio legend. The Shure SM58 is a unidirectional (cardioid) dynamic vocal microphone designed for professional vocal use in live performance, sound reinforcement, and studio recording. A highly effective, built-in, spherical filter minimizes wind and breath "pop" noise. A cardioid pickup pattern isolates the main sound source while minimizing unwanted background noise. The SM58 has a tailored vocal response for a sound which is a world standard. Rugged construction, a proven shock mount system, and a steel mesh grille ensure that even with rough handling, the SM58 will perform consistently. Outdoors or indoors, singing or speech -- the SM58 is the overwhelming choice of professionals worldwide.

      The Shure SM58 never fails. Love this family of microphones, and especially like having the on/off switch. The only thing keeping me from issuing a 5-star review is that the switch itself is a touch looser than I would like it to be, leading to concerns about its usefulness over the long-term. At the moment, this is (hopefully) a minor quibble of mine. A durable and excellent overall microphone, especially considering the price.

      Decent mic. Probably among the best for the money. Wish they'd come up with a different material for the ball, though. Thing shocks me when I use it in dry weather. Definitely get the Shure windscreen to go with it. A buck or two more than the others but it definitely is better.

              I wanted to move up to a better vocal mic and after trying out various ones settled on this standard. Sound is much clearer on recordings and live but the best improvement I've noticed is it is much easier to use. I always had trouble finding the sweet spot when singing with my former cheapy mic but the Shure has a lot of tolerance.

                I love this mic. It sounds great and only pics up what is close to the mic and not any of the noise around. It's also super durable. For a school where our students will drop it frequently, it's holding up great!

                  The most dependable mic I've ever used, meaning I've used this model for years on everything from studio recording to live performance, and most recently on live play-by-play broadcast as a nat-mic (field mic) to pick up "the sounds of the game," and it serves as a backup mic in case a headset malfunctions and I need an instant backup. It's not a super high-end studio mic but it sounds great for my application, and best of all, this mic can take the road.

                          I purchased the SM58S (special order with a switch) because our application at church required this type of extra control from the user end. The legendary sm58 mic was not at all changed by this extra feature and that is why I believe Shure deserves high marks. Excllence in sound and application. Thank you Shure.

                          I am a newbie podcaster and I'm not quite ready to sink $350 into a new dynamic mic. Thus, I bought the SM58S as a lower-cost compromise and I have been very happy. I'm using it with a Behringer 1202 mixer hooked up to a Roland R-05 recorder and the sound quality is awesome. One thing about the pop filter though - all of the reviews/videos I looked at said you did not need a pop filter or windscreen because there was one built internally into the SM58. But I was still getting a lot to popping on the mic. I have since added the $6 windscreen and there have been no problems.

                                I purchased this microphone for live public speech assemblies and needed a microphone that could use XLR-3M connection. The pickup sensitivity is great, has a rugged construction with perfect voice clarity minimizing unwanted background noise.

                                      The Shure SM58 never fails. Love this family of microphones, and especially like having the on/off switch. The only thing keeping me from issuing a 5-star review is that the switch itself is a touch looser than I would like it to be, leading to concerns about its usefulness over the long-term. At the moment, this is (hopefully) a minor quibble of mine. A durable and excellent overall microphone, especially considering the price.

                                        Karaoke party time. Nothing beats the sounds from the Shure SM58S. I've had one for the last eight years and it's still performing Outstandingly. Just purchased another to add a total of 4 mics to my system.
