        Comments about Shure KSM9 Dual Diaphragm Performance Condenser Microphone:

        I'm a lead singer in a male vocal band. So yes the sound quality of my mic is essential for my performance. I've tried MANY mics ( Audix OM6, Shure beta 87A, Senheisser 945e which I own, Audio technica 5400ae, Electro-Voice N/D767a, Shure SM58 normal and Beta version), trying to look for the best sound quality. Anyone that knows anything about mics knows that I've metioned some top performers in my list, so now I may come to my conclusion.

        If you want true studio quality in your hand with amazing rejection of feedback dude look no more. This mic trully delivers amazing sound quality and the feature of changeing patterns is just too cool. Plus, shure recognizes your investment by giving you a cool metal housing that protects the mic while its stored. This is something others like senheisser and Neuman (same prized competitors)don't take into consideration.

        So when I want studio quality I go KSM9 but in extremely noisy settings where quality is really not needed I go with my bulldog Senheiser 945e which to me is the best dynamic mic out there it sounds almost like a condensor but with the robustness of a Dynamic. In my case though I usually sing in a very controlled enviroment so I can use my condensor KSM9 with no problem... Hope this helps

        Comments about Shure KSM9 Dual Diaphragm Performance Condenser Microphone:

        I own 5 of these. I sold my Neumann 105 because the KSM9 is better and more flexible. I've used this mic to record Opera great Sylvia McNair's cabaret show.
        The singer in my band, Elsie Parker and the Poor People of Paris, uses this mic exclusively. It captures her alto voice beautifully and when we record our concerts it's like having a U87 on her.
        The gain before feedback is exceptional.
        I've got Neumanns, DPA's, Schoeps and more and this mic stands up to them all.

        Best vocal mic ever!!!!!

        By Sam Martin

        from Red Bluff, CA

        Comments about Shure KSM9 Dual Diaphragm Performance Condenser Microphone:

        I recently bought this mic (KSM9) after trying it at a music shop, and it is an exceptional vocal mic, the best I've ever utilised. Everyone on my team thinks we should get more. It is so clear and it absolutely boosts more from the BETA87A range than the Neumann KMS 105 does. The KMS 105 although being a great mic sounds to dry compared to this one.

        Great Live Microphone

        By Brother Burr

        from Hilton Head, SC

        Comments about Shure KSM9 Dual Diaphragm Performance Condenser Microphone:

        I have used this mic in my live shows for a year now. I tried many others prior to springing for the price of an ultra-high end solution. My vocals are the most important aspect of what I do so I wanted to invest wisely. This mic is the right answer for me. Great high-end clarity and range control ... with little or no feedback when set as per the specifications. I recommend it if you can justify the cost.

        very smooth mic KSM9

        By Beats working :)

        from near Philly

        Comments about Shure KSM9 Dual Diaphragm Performance Condenser Microphone:

        This is a fine mic. If you are going from the Beta 87 like us the difference is more subtle than say from a Beta 58. We first bought the Neuman KMS 105 but found we were unplugging them after the first set and taking out the Beta 87's on almost every gig. Not good for the price of owning them. I suppose for recording situations the Neumans are tops, but for live?, well I can only relate my own experiences. The Neumans sounded too dry / dull to us. Anyway, since we went with the KSM9 a few months ago they have not been unplugged once on a gig and the Beta 87s appear to be permanently retired to a backup role now. If you like the Beta 87 you will like this one even more but you will pay more than double for it. We are full timers and to us if it makes us just that much better it's worth it. We have some strong singers, and they all have said the KSM9 makes it easier to sing and hit notes without pushing as hard. I've owned just about every mic there is in my career and to me this one is the best yet. I also own Audix OM5 and VX5, Beyer, AKG. They are good mics too but the KSM9 is my preference now.

        Increadable Mic

        Comments about Shure KSM9 Dual Diaphragm Performance Condenser Microphone:

        I have seen a few bands use this. I have heard about it. I know it is an amazing Microphone, thats why so many artist are switching to it. The Features like Cardiod/Supercardiod Switchable is amazing. It is the 1st of its kind in handheld. It is also Condensor which brings Studio Quality On-Stage. I am probably going to switch from the Beta 58A to the KSM9 in the next 6 Months because I want a condensor and there is no better handheld mic out there. I highly Recommend it It sounds amazing in what I have heard of it.

        This Mic is very clean and distinct. I used on a live performance, I was blown away. Great for male vocals as it has boost in the 4 to 10Khz range. Nice warm mids, had it going trough a A&H GL2800. It rocks!!! Got to get it! Touring lead vocalist should make a wise investment and get this mic for themselves.
