This mic was on-sale and the price was right. So I took a chance and bought it. I mainly use it at home for Karaoke. Vocal sounded similar to my 18 yr old Sure BG-1 mic. But the mic dome diameter is significantly smaller in size. The quality of the Sure mic seems better than this one and came with a 15ft cable. I had to order a separate cable for this mic in order to connect to my pre-amp.
I wish there was an on-off button on this mic.

I got two of these because they were cheap and I wanted to have a couple extra mics for jam sessions and such. First thing I noticed is that they don't handle well. Any readjustment of your grip will travel through the body and into your mix. Not an issue if it's just for fun but if you're trying to record, coming close to this mic is scary.

They are a bit more sensitive than a SM58 which makes it easier for some folks to use (if they're not used to being close to a microphone). I've had a few karaoke sessions with them and in fact I prefer these to the SM58 for that.

Overall, they're usable mics. I would warn that if you're trying to record with it, have a stand and make sure the cable isn't moving or bumped or it will pick it up. For a live event, let people know to keep a steady grip on it.

Random fact - the grills mostly fit on a SM58 in case you need to black one out :)

Best microphone purchase ever

By Dwight Fultz

from Northern MN

Comments about Digital Reference DRV100 Dynamic Cardioid Handheld Mic:

Just what I wanted: A very good mic, on sale.
Good mic, didn't buy it for multiple features, No on-off switch, small sweet spot,...
Fantastic mic for the price and for my home "garage-band-type" uses.
Best value I have seen in years.

    WOW! This mic bats my Shure SM48 out of the park. Both in similar price range. But this one cuts through the mix and really brings out my voice clean and smooth. I got it on SDOTD sale so I got 2. Amazing!

        This mic is decent at its regular price but for the sale price I got it for it amazing ! It's fine for back up vocals live
        It's good enough for lead vocals at rehearsal , not that you couldn't. Get a adequate
        Sound for lead live but you usually should use the Shure mics or compatible
        Ones for lead lay gigs
