    Shure SM11 reviews

    SM11-CN Lavalier Microphone is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 29.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Complete Disappointment Do yourself a favor and definitely DO NOT buy this microphone. Because it is a dynamic with such a small magnet (even though it is gigantic for a lavaliere) it has an abysmal signal-to-noise ratio. You will hate yourself when you get into editing due to the terrible cable noise and low output. I am shocked that a company as reputable as Shure has even released such a bush-league product, and as I'm looking at upgrading this microphone I'm no longer even considering Shure products any more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I own 5 of them, and I love it..... A+++ I have 5 of these. I have recommended them to other performers. I use them on my banjos. The are incredible, I use a tywrap and fix it to a tension hook on the outside of the banjo facing down into a sound hole. It has a great sound, I have used it for years, from a small pa, to onstage for a large audience. It always performs well. I have also used it for recording along with the front mic. With Banjo, when you move off axis it changes the tone, but with this, mic, you have no problem with that. The sound is always consistant. Well Done Shure.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Lav mic I've used a lot of lav mics, from the $25 range to the $250 range. I got this mic in a package with some other equipment, and have been blown away at its professional sound. The signal-to-noise ratio is awesome, the sound is clear and the design is rugged. The only downside is that the mic itself is fairly large, and doesn't hide as well when clipped to the talent.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Combat and durable I use them for interviews in the field. Work very well and are really durable. I have another pair of these for 4 years and still in perfect condition. If you care you will have microphones for long. I am no specialist in sound, but for interviews work very well. Clear audio without noise. I never had never interference problems, recording in many circumstances. Do not require batteries and is XLR connector. If you buy a kit sony wireless base can connect to wireless handheld mic and you have another wireless mic tie for little money. The only flaw I could point out is that they are a little big, if you're looking for discretion or want to hide. I put 4 stars because there are microphones with better sound quality, but for journalistic purposes would put 5 stars because it is really very good fighter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellant I use these for recording depositions. For the price you can't beat the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality Lavalier Microphone Needed a small, quality microphone for Documentary video shoot. Sound quality is excellent and reception of radios works well. Have only just received product and not put it to full use, but early tests seem to go well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent For Recording Interviews I bought this mic to use when recording personal histories to CD. It's small, easy to attach, and has excellent sound quality$The omni directional pick-up pattern insures that the talent will sound great even if they turn their head when speaking as untrained people are apt to do.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reliable and Sturdy I've been using an SM-11 since my first run at video production several years ago and recently acquired a second one for it's price and durability. It does record levels a bit lower than other high quality wired lav's. But have always relied on this mic for not picking up too much background and being good at handling itself without too much noise from wires moving, and the like. It's also on the large size, so you'll have to work with it on a subject a bit more. But it's worth it.
