    Shure SUPER 55 reviews

    Super 55 Pitch Black Edition Deluxe Vocal Microphone (Pitch Black) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look cooler...sound better! I'm a solo performer (guitar/vocals) who's performed for over 20 years. I can say, without hesitation, I sound better (and look better) with the Super 55 than any other mic I've owned. Vocals are just crisper and cut through the mix better with this mic. And, there is no cooler looking mic around. I just wonder why I have waited this long to get it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It sounds as good as it looks As a singer for my band I was looking for a mic that will pick up my vocals to match the loud guitars and drums. This mic not only delivered well for a life performance. It also helps that it has the retro look and is a heavy piece of gear. If you want a clear sound mic then this is it hands down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Mic! I own a audio company in Southern California. I needed a vintage mic to use for a gig with a Billie Holliday impersonator. I ordered the Super 55 and was not disappointed. The mic sounded GREAT!!! It had superior off access rejection as my FOH speaker system had to be behind the performer in a very tight space. The mic is beautifully crafted and very sturdy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Literally... The best mic I've ever bought. This mic is solid. My band does rock music and we got 0 feed back in our 20X20 ft. practice room. Pretty impossible with any other mic. The quality is accurate and raw. Also good for my video voice over work. Lastly, no microphone looks sexier.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I was looking for This mic both looks great and sounds great. And let's be honest; both are very important. I'm using this mic for both spoken word performances and the vocalist in the band I play with and I love it for both occasions.
