    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.

            Almost as good as the Beyerdynamics mic I use- for a much more economical price.

              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.

                  Comments about Blue enCORE 200 Dynamic Live Vocal Microphone:

                  When we started our band over three years ago we started with cheap mics since we had no cash flow. After a year we upgraded to Sennheiser e822s and again a year after that moved to a Sennheiser e835 (or vis-vera, I can't remember now). In December of 2012 I got a Blue Encore 200 and was absolutely blown away at the sound, quality and durability of this mic. I was the first on the block to get one and now several musicians I know have bought them because of the amazing quality. I'm a singer, not a sound engineer so let me say it this way. When I have this mic in my hand, it's got a great weight and has some amazing clarity. If something happened to mine today I'd have a replacement tomorrow. It's just that good. I've been using it for 10 months now with absolutely no problems and no diminishing quality over time.

                    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 was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of this mic. My preliminary test confirmed that this was a significant improvement over my old mic (EV N/D257B.) The nuances are there and it seemed "rich and warm." In short I liked my voice a lot better all of a sudden!
