        It doesn't reject noise as much as I would like. Rejects enough for a noisy bedroom or apartment but not quite enough for loud stage at a small venue. Fantastic for recording at home or in a studio.

          The Blue Encore 300 is a great microphone! Over the last 40 years we've used all types of mics in our church ministry and the Encore 300 is the best one we've ever had. We've purchased ten of them, replacing most of the microphones we previously had. Great microphone and the buy one, get one free deal from Musician's Friend made it a no brainer choice!

              Ordered this Encore 300 when they offered the Buy one get one special, as I have always been curious to compare it to the Beta 87 Condenser I was currently using for lead vocals. I had seen a previous reviewer mention that they had to turn down their gains up to 10 db because this mic created so much more volume for them. I was a bit skeptical but that was exactly what we discovered. Side by side with the Beta 87, the Encore blew us away. Not only were we able to turn down our gains and create more headroom, but the tone and clarity were a subtle improvement as well. Which is saying something 'cause we really liked the Beta 87. Great mic.

                Does exactly what it is supposed to do and does it well! I bought it for the lead singer to cut through the mix more than he does with an SM-58. It has a wonderful, clear, crisp sound with all kinds of room for volume. Keep it away from the speakers, though!

                  Bought this for my wife who sings in the band. She had been using a wireless previously. Convinced her to try a wired mic to see how it would sound. The Blue 300 was pretty hot compared to her old one so I'd say the gain was at about half of what it was with the dynamic mic compared to this condenser. Ran this mic with the normal compressor settings turned off to see how it sounded for the last couple of shows and it sounds great uncompressed. Blue light to show phantom power is a slick touch. We play in a loud rock band and I did not have any feedback issues, even though the meter on the board shows this mic picking up about 80% of whatever the drums are doing. Would certainly purchase a Blue 300 again and might even consider one for myself.

                  Comments about Blue enCORE 300 Condenser Live Vocal Microphone:

                  I purchased an Encore 300 for a friend, in thanks, for a help with a building project. I currently use an Encore 100, which is a great mike, but the 300, is enviable. It is smooth, very detailed, and works very well with his voice. His singing partner has a much louder voice and this mike takes so much less gain to achieve the same volume. The mike can be worked from a little further away, and it still produces a very full sound. The phantom power light is also a plus, to confirm that phantom power is running through the channel. This mike is on my wishlist, and I enjoy doing sound for my friend's gigs. It is easy to eq and always produces clean, articulate, professional sounding vocals. I have had no feedback issues with it, as long as I am sparing with gain and reasonable monitor levels are used. Out front, it is a joy to hear someone sing through. It could be used for recording, keeping in mind that there are better condenser microphones for that. It is designed and excels at live performances.

                  Blue Encore 300 is a huge winner

                  Comments about Blue enCORE 300 Condenser Live Vocal Microphone:

                  My band wanted new miocrphones to replace the 1966 designed SM58's that we were using. We came across the Blue Encore mic's. We use the Blue Blueberry and Blue Kiwi mics in the studio and were hopeful that Blue came out with some great mic's for live situations as well. Blue did not disapoint. The Encore 100 offers a nicer top end over the SM58 but we wanted to check out the flagship 300 model as well...and we are glad we did. The Encore 300 offers a wonderful refined sound that had full low end, mid's and a top end that was not too bright. The Beta 58a we liked better than the SM58 as well since it offered some nice top end on our vocals. For straight rock music the Beta 58a might have been a good choice. But for capturing the full character of your voice, the 300 was a clean winner. It offered a more smooth detailed sound that reminded me of good condensor mic that you would get in the studio. Musicians Friend was great in providing the mic's and giving us good direction.

                  There is nothing I don't like about the mic. Perhaps it would have been nice if they included a black foam wind screen for times you are doing a gig outside and it's windy. But other than that, no complaints at all.
                  The Blue Encore has a Blue light on the mic that lights up when you have phantom power on the mic. Very nice idea. Sometimes you might be on stage and your mic does not work. You can look at your mic as see if the audio engineer forgot to put on the phantom power as he might think you have a dynamic mic.
                  Very rugged mic and the ring around it does a great job in protecting the mic in case it is dropped. The mic build is very good and it feels solid in your hands.
                  I have yet to find a better sounding microphone for this price for vocals. Many have stated they also prefer it over the Shure Beta 87a which cost more money.
