Did A/B comparison with this mic as soon as I received it with my EV n/d 727. Crisper, better low end & clearer. Using the Blue Encore 200 was like taking a filter off the EV mic. Love it. I've become so used to it I'm starting to use it in home recording. Also, you can't go wrong with the copper look on top!. A+++

I bought 2 of these mics one was missing from my package and I had to wait for Musicians Friend to send me another then one blew up at a concert and Musicians Friend told me I had to deal with the company that made it. I called Blue Microphone spoke to a live person who took all of my info to give to the repair dept who never called or emailed me back. Really unhappy with this product and this company and Musicians Friend for not standing behind this product.

      Comments about BLUE enCORE 200 Dynamic Live Vocal Microphone:

      I purchased 2 Blue Encore200 mics to replace 2 Shure 58's that were stolen after a show. These were offered by MF as a 2 for the price of 1 promo and I was in a bind and for the price I thought why not. I'm glad I did. These mics sound better than the Shure 58! Great flat response! I was so impressed I also purchased 2 Blue Encore 300's again at the 2 for 1 promo price to replace an EV condenser that was also taken the same night. The Blue condensers blow the EV away! My conclusion, BUY these mics!

        Comments about BLUE enCORE 200 Dynamic Live Vocal Microphone:

        I bought this last year and right from the get go i had issues. I sent it in to Blue for repair and got it back but it's still not working right. I see some people are having good luck with it and that's fine and dandy. My experience has been terrible and will never buy another Blue product! A waste of money and time!!!
        I don't like trashing or bad mouthing things but i'll make an exception here!

          Comments about BLUE enCORE 200 Dynamic Live Vocal Microphone:

          I bought these at the beginning of the BOGO special and boy is this a steal. This mic is head and shoulders above the SM58 and I prefer it over the Beta 58 as well. Never have I owned such an honest mic. At first I wasn't sure if I liked it or not because I noticed that I sounded pretty terrible, but after hearing other people use it on our stage, I realized that the microphone literally just DOES NOT color your sound. And why should it? That's what preamps and EQ are for. What you get from the microphone itself is a brutally honest representation of the voice or instrument you are micing. You also get the added bonus of being the only kids on the block with a microphone that looks as snazzy as these!

          Bear in mind that these mics, although dynamic, require phantom power. This allows for ultra low impedance for long cable runs if necessary, amongst other things. There's a nice little indicator on the handle that lets you know if the mic is receiving phantom power. Feels great in the hands, and the mic clips are sturdy and firmly grip the microphone without having to force it into the clip. The textures between the mic itself and the clip are made so they come in and out easily, but don't slip (even when you're drunk and trip over the cord and pull the whole thing down stand and all). Which btw, the grills on these things are also very strong. Not even a dent or a scratch!

          I highly recommend taking advantage of this BOGO sale while it lasts.

              Got this Blue because we were using sm58's and am updating equipment. Bought a Heil but had horrific feedback issues. Love the Blue 200. No feedback issues and tonal quality is fantastic. Previously singer sounded twangy but not with the Blue.

              This is a great mic.....limited noise at higher volume. I plugged this into my Tascam 32sd and used it to record acoustic guitar. A very nice recording without the low lows and Twinkie high sounds. Very true to what you'd want your acoustic guitar to sound like.

                great step up from our previous mics.
                smooth snd accurate with no real noticeable frequency bumps.
                remember it needs phantom power on before you turn on your poweramp-makes awful racket till it gets fed.

                    Best live performance mic I've ever used. Head and shoulders above Beta 58, Audix OM5 and others of similar caliber. The phantom powered dynamic capsule offers incredibly quiet operation coupled with amazing dynamic range. I would likely have to spend at least double the price to replicate the quality sound produced by this mic.
