These are good mics period and great for this price range. Great value! Very useful for micing up guitar amps and such as well as vocals. They are surprisingly resistant to feedback for the price. Great value! Not the best possible mic but will get the job done. If you are on a strict budget or just need a few extra mics from time to time these are a reasonable choice.

handling noise is obtrusive, hand held or on a stand that is touched or moved or re-positioned. Unless the stage is concrete, just tapping your feet anywhere near the mic stand will cause loud clunks to be heard through the sound system.
outstanding vocal reproduction, feedback and proximity effect is minimal.

    I use this mic with both my Kustom Personal PA 50, and my (discontinued) Kustom Sienna 35 acoustic amp. This mic sounds mighty fine through both. Put on a wind screen and this mic sounds really good. I am amazed. I got 6 on the "buy 1 get 2 free" deal, but I would gladly pay the everyday MF street price for this mic.

    Comments about AKG D 8000M Buy One Get One Free:

    You'll read a review here that says something about the mics sounding great but very poor isolation characteristics. The guy that wrote that was 100% right on! The mics sound great - we needed mics to replace our 30 year old AKG gig mics so we considered the Shure Beta 58s but decided to buy the inexpensive AKGs for rehearsal and keep our gig mics. The sound is flawless - we didn't even change the EQ - but don't touch the cable or the mic stand! An innocent tap on the chord or stand rings loud and clear through the PA! But they sound great! Perfect for rehearsal as long as you don't use it as a hand-held or kick the mic stand with your foot! Great value however! Can't beat the price!

      This mic is great for the price. Sounds great for vocals etc but...
      The handling noise is very loud. If you tap the body of the mic while you are live the audience hears a loud 'Thud'. If the stage is wooden like many are, every footstep or bass drum kick travels up the mic stand and to the house PA.

          Bought a few of these as backups, very surprised on the sound. the are not as "heavy/solid" built as SM58's so I would not use them for a singer that is hand holding but for stand mounted they are great. throw a few in your rack case for backup and spares. nothing wrong with the sound at all. and for the price it is a no brainer.

            Fat lows/clear highs, and strong in between: as all microphones they are dependent upon their components, and users. Out of the box they are great so far, except for stripped out threads in one of the clips for which I am expecting a replacement in a few days. Overall they are what I expected so far!!!

                These mic's sound clear and have a fairly tight polar pattern. I A/B'd them with my sure beta 87 A and they were slightly brighter and not quite as warm sounding but still good sounding. I usually like to eq mic's flat but with these all they needed with my set up was a slight cut in the high and a slight boost in mids and lows (and I mean slight, Maybe 1 or 2 db) and they sounded fairly close to my 87A.

                  Great Value - I keep a couple in my PA bag for back ups or venues where I don't want to have my 58's at risk for theft and mayhem. Good clear sound, slightly more responsive than the 58's and of course no phantom power required.

                      GOOD SENSITIVITY AND REPRODUCTION OF AUDIO,BUT UNFORTUNATELY RESPONSE TO LOWER FREQUENCIES EVEN PICKS UP MIC STAND VIBRATIONS THROUGH CONCRETE FLOOR!SUSPECT MICS OWN INTERNAL VIBRATIONS AND OTHER AMBIENT NOISE PROVIDE DISTORTION TOO. BOUGHT SENNHEISER E838S AT SAME TIME AND $FOR$ (NOT THAT BIG OF A DIFFERENCE) THEY ARE VASTLY SUPERIOR. WILL KEEP AKGS AS BACKUPS TO USE CAREFULLY.
                      A FRIEND ACTUALLY HAS THESE AND WE WEREN'T ABLE TO DETECT THE PROBLEM AT THE MOMENT PLAYING THROUGH HIS SYSTEM AND WERE PLEASED AT RESPONSIVENESS AT THAT TIME.SUGGEST REDUCING LOW END IN PREAMP STAGES OF SOUND SYSTEM DON'T TAP FEET, DON'T BUMP MIC OR STAND AND DEFINITELY DON'T HANDHOLD.

                        I had one of these mics for years and recently joined a new four piece music group. When my band mates heard me sing through this mic they could not believe how crisp and loud my voice was without any feedback issues. We ended up purchasing two more on a buy one get one free deal from MF. Now all of our vocal mixes are easy to set up and our harmonies have improved tremendously. Great value for quality sound! These mics are rugged and have a professional look. Would definitely purchase again.
