        Comments about Audio-Technica AE6100 Hypercardioid Dynamic Microphone:

        Well, i will say you can get a little more volume out of this mic than the Shure 58, and for my voice cuts through the live mix a little better. However the mic does tend to be very sibilant so you have to be careful with the "s" word vocals. I dont really feel it worth the higher cost than other mics.

        Comments about Audio-Technica AE6100 Hypercardioid Dynamic Microphone:

        I've gone throught the "Shure" gambit with the SM58, and the Beta 58a, but then used the ATM27HEs and finally the AE4100, and have now settled on the AE6100. I'm using the Shures to mike accoustic guitars, but the ATM27HEs are for backup vocals and ocasional lead voice, but the AE6100s are for mainly lead vocals. If you know how to use a mike - half of your difficulties are solved, then the rest is your EQs and a soundman that has a clue... I have one of each of the shures mentioned, 10 of the ATN27HEs, and three of the AE6100. If I need more they will be the AE6100s.

        Great Mic

        By Jeremy Rutherford

        from Richland, WA

        Comments about Audio-Technica AE6100 Hypercardioid Dynamic Microphone:

        Great Mic, I would recommend this for pretty much anyone who is a vocalist. My buddy uses the exact same mic after trying shure products, seinheiser and a few other low ends. Having used a SM57, and SM58 and a few pg 58's that the rest of the band uses, this one sounds so much better than the rest.
        No features to speak of, sounds great without any
        Sturdy and strong, I try to take care of my stuff but you can't protect them from everything where it be bumped into or dropped.
        It is more than I wanted to spend for a Mic, but after singing through a SM-58, and SM-57 this blows both out of the water

        Amazing

        By David-COypi

        from Fargo, ND

        Comments about Audio-Technica AE6100 Hypercardioid Dynamic Microphone:

        I have been running sound for a few years now, about 6, and I have used pretty much every mic out there, AKG, Senhiezer, Sure, Audix. What I have found, from side by side comparisons, is that this mic blows every other mic that I have used out of the water!!! It has a better frequency response then say, the sm 58, 946, ect. I have compared it to even the Beta 87a, which is a great vocal mic, but it still collors the sound a little, this mic has no tone colloring whatsoever, the highs are a little on the hotter side, but you can easaly eq it.I love how much output this mic has, because then you have alot more headroom, with less feadback,All in all an incredible crystal clear vocal mic, that has incredible detail very high output less feadback very little noise. The best part is the detail, when you mic an instrument (the human voice) that has incredible dynamics you want to pick up every subtle detail you can. This mic does it. Throw away your 58s and 835s and get this mic, or better yet get the ae5400 from Audio Technica!!!! It will blow your mind!!!!

        Wonderful sound.

        Comments about Audio-Technica AE6100 Hypercardioid Dynamic Microphone:

        I've used this mic to record draft vocals to be recorded with a condenser mic later. Beforehand, I used the Shure SM58, but it just made too much noise and sounded way different than what was recorded on the condenser. With all things equal, the AE 6100 recordings had much less noise and the vocals came out around 10+ db louder and sounded very, very close to the condenser mic recordings. I gave a 4 for features only because it didn't have anything that I didn't already expect. I want to try the Sennheiser e945 next.

        Best Live Dynamic I've Used

        By Zach-tzJm4

        from Olympia, WA

        Comments about Audio-Technica AE6100 Hypercardioid Dynamic Microphone:

        This is a fantastic mic! I've had about 7 years live singing experience with a loud rock/metal band. During that time, I've used the standby SM58, Electrovoice's N/D 767, Sennheiser e835 wireless version, Shure's Beta 58a, and an Audix OM5. The AE6100 stands head and shoulders above each of these.Out of those I named, the only one that compares is the OM5. The rejection qualities are similar between the two, and the gain seemed to be similar. When I AB'd the OM5 and the 6100 at the local music shop, the 6100 seemed a bit more robust to me, too. I bought the OM5 first because it seemed to be more solidly built mic. Ironically, the problem I had with the OM5 was that the capsule broke on me after falling from a foot high coffee table!Make no mistake, the AE6100 has taken far more punishment than that already, and has had NO problems. This mic is a hypercardioid; feedback is a non-issue. Tell your sound guy that. He'll probably have his settings generically prepared for an SM58, and that will NOT make this mic work to it's full potential.The only live mic I'd want to look into after this one is a higher end condenser, like the AE5400, but I'm too much in love with the tight hypercardioid pattern on this baby to give it up yet.This mic won't let you down, bottom line.
