I don't have anything bad to say about this mic so far. I've had two of these for a few weeks and have used it primarily for PA and talkback in the studio. They have the heft of a 58 that many mics in this price range are lacking and they don't do anything too funky to the sound. I bought them as the 'stupid deal of the day' for [$] each so the only thing that would make me hate these mics is if they didn't work out of the box. I did some research and AKG makes these mics exclusively for musicians friend. I figure they just might be re-branded D88's without the switch,which is a pretty solid low end mic for the money. If anyone knows differently, please enlighten the rest of us!Time will tell the quality of craftsmanship with this unit. So far so good though. If you can't afford a 58 this is a good alternative and if they ever go on sale at [$] apiece again, it's a no brainer. They're worth the money at twice the price, so i bought two.

I was looking for some vocal microphones that were better than the Nady SP-5 microphones that we are using. These were a "Stupid Deal" - so I tried them. VERY sensitive. I could literally scrape my fingernail down the XLR cable and hear the microphone pick it up. I could tap the floow near the stand and have the microphone pick it up. I WOULD NOT recommend these for stand microphones. I am going to fly these above the stage are and use them to pick up sound for concerts and such. That way they can be "isolated" and I won't have to worry about performers and speakers handling the microphones.

Comments about AKG D8000M Dynamic Vocal Microphone:

If you are looking for a Shure SM58 for less money forget it! That microphone doesn't exist, This mic is as tough as a Shure but it doesn't have the smooth, warm, pleasant vocal handling of the SM58. It is a good mic for amateur recording or performance. Good for speech but not for pro vocals or recording. It just doesn't have the presence of an SM58.

        Got this on the Stupid Deal of the Day. Only thing stupid about it is if I hadn't bought it. Excellent sound and as good as some higher price mics. Buy it - if fact - buy more than one. You won't regret it.

            Tested it with a Shure sm 58 --- the shure has a LITTLE more bass end,,but the AKG had a LITTLE more top end. Compared - blindfolded - ? no one could tell the difference.

              Side by Side vs SM-58 this microphone sounded cleaner and more accurate. The SM-58 had a warmer tone, which seems to be more pleasing for vocals. If you can add warmth at the board or with a vocal processor, the sound will be comparable. If you are using it for an instrument mic, the clarity would be a benefit. As a utility mic at this price point, it is a good value.
