I went looking on the Audio-Technica site for this microphone and couldn't find it. A little research turned up the ATR1300. The M4000S is the same microphone repackage with an XLR to XLR cable. You are essentially paying for an upgraded cable.

The sensitivity of this mic is about 6 db below that of most similar models, so you will need to crank the gain a little. This is only a problem if you have less than pristine preamps or if the electrical environment is particularly dirty.

The mellow high end makes this an excellent mic for female vocals, especially for those with a bit of power. This also makes it a good mic for "bright" instruments like a banjo or fiddle. It's not that good at pulling detail out of most acoustic guitars, especially a 12 string that carries a lot of harmonics. For those you need a decent medium to large diaphram condenser mic (I like the MXL 990)
Run of the mill cardioid (unidirectional) dynamic with on/off switch.
All metal construction similar to the Shure SM58. Don't abuse it and it should last quite awhile.
Substantially cheaper than the SM58, but does not have the output level of the Shure mic. A bit more mid-range as well. This is likely due to the higher impendance.

Given the price and the branding, I would expect better performance specs out of this mic. It's only so-so for vocals and lacks the frequency response to be a good instrument mic.These are OK for starter mics if one is on a very tight budget, but I'd sooner pay more for a mic with better specs than use these.

    Comments about Audio-Technica M4000S Handheld Dynamic Microphone:

    I bought three of these mikes on special from MF seven years ago and they have been gigged with, banged around, dropped and I used them in the studio and not once have they let me down. other mikes in this price range don't have on/off switches, which is another plus for this mike, especially if someone forgets to turn down the gain on the mixer.

    For the most part, it works well. The noise cancelling was not better than the cheap mic that I purchased last year. But, it's still a good mic. The on/off switch is super helpful.

      Ok, ever had a high pitched singer performing with you and you just can't EQ out the treble enough through the house PA. Put away your 58 and grab the M4000S this mic will help considerably. I only recommend for performance. Not a recording or instrument mic, it lack frequency clarity. This mic has emphasis on the Bass and Mids ranges in the frequency spectrum. Truly an amazing mic for someone on a budget.

      Part of a package deal that I purchased. I won't use them much as I have Shure SM58s that put these to shame as vocal mics but they will make a nice back up or maybe an instument mic. They would be good for spoken only events but not for vocal performance.

      Comments about Audio-Technica M4000S Handheld Dynamic Microphone:

      This mic seems to be well made and very durable however when checking it out I found that it had a LOT of bass and mids with almost no treble. My Sennheisers and Shures are much better for musical vocals. This mic would be good for speaking, lectures and exercise classes but not much more.

            I got these on a stupid deal of the day, and the only stupid thing is that I didn't stock up on more. It is better for upper register singing/instruments, as it seems to lack a bit of low-end punch. Throw a little reverb in the mix, and it's a lot less of an issue. I would probably go with a higher-end mic for recording, but they make a great jam/practice/emergency backup mic. If you are on a budget, this might be just the ticket for you.

            This is a great spare mic to have - especially when you need good mic for speaking with an on/off switch. It will also do in a pinch for backing vocals, but I would not recommend it for lead vocals. For speaking it is quite adequate.
