excellent mic, well built. gives lots of movement freedom for guitarists-even works well for piano-keyboard players. I own 2 and have used them for many years without any problems. I use a 20 ft. xlr cable with an on-off switch that is built in to the cord to connect to the mixer. Since you cannot get away from the mic to clear your throat, you need to be able to shut it down quickly. The mic picks up exceptionally well but only within about 3 inches of the source so back feed is very minimal. I you need to be hands-free, limited room for mic placement, or in need of movement freedom, this is a great mic and at a good price for the quality.

This headset picked up far too much of the sound of my snare and ride cymbals (not for drummers!). Otherwise, very good vocal quality, easy to adjust, and stayed on my head nicely. A nice feature would be an on/off switch We will purchase the Crown CM311A.

      Great sound, but the volume is a little low. You have to turn it up louder than a stand mic. But all in all a great mic for the money

              This mic is exceptional. Sounds like the sm58, which is good. Stays put when I play drums, adjusts well, cannot comment on durability yet.

              Comments about Shure SM10A-CN Headset Mic:

              As a keyboard player and vocalist the headset allows hands free operation with excellent quality clear sound through a PA. However, an on/off switch is really required for unwanted broadcasts e.g. coughing, talking etc.. One solution is to link to a BOSS A/B footswitch which is of excellent quality for a reasonable price.But you then lose the XLR connections.

                  Very nice,typical of Shure products. I was surprised that it came with a permanent case and not just some temporary shipping thing.I love the freedom I now have to sing !!

                  Review of SM10A-CN Headset Mic

                  from Florida

                  Comments about Shure SM10A-CN Headset Mic:

                  Recently bought the headset to use when I perform with guitar in solo gigs. Allows alot more freedom for; head movement while playing without losing proximity to mike. It worked flawlessly. Head set plugged in directly into my amp without the need for any preamp and I didn't have an; problem with feedback or clarity. The adjustment is easy to use. With Shure products I can always be sure of the output quality. The plastic box it came in works well to protect the mic. Some fitted foam I put in helps even more. An on/off switch would be a big plus, but use a foot switched floor outlet box and plug in power to the amp and effects box I can turn the whole system off at the same time from my performing location. All in all this mic is a great product for the price.

                  Not bad, but could be better

                  Comments about Shure SM10A-CN Headset Mic:

                  I'm a drummer that sings lead vox on most of my two band's songs. I usually use a boom mic, as I often play harmonica while drumming, too. Obviously, that cannot be done with a headset mic, but for just vox and drums, this was a very affordable unit.First, the good points- its has a pretty clear sound, and is lightweight. It has a very secure fit on the cranium, and the boom adjustability is awesome. It rarely (if ever) feedsback, even when the gain gets bumped up. The price range is absolutely KILLER!The bad points- having to run a 1/8-to-1/4-to-XLR adapters on the cable is burdensome. Even though the cable had enough length to allow the "clump" of adapters to sit on the floor behind me, it's inevitable that it will get stepped on, etc.The way the frame sits on your head makes it impossible to put on and take off reading or sunglasses without removing the mic each time. As others have noted, it does not come with any type of protective case or box, so I had to fabricate one, but not a big deal.Overall, I'd say it's VERY well worth the cost, and a good unit.

                  SM-12a, too

                  Comments about Shure SM10A-CN Headset Mic:

                  I am a singing drummer and have used this monitor equipped version for years. I contacted Shure about proper use and one of their sound engineers advised me it eqs just like a SM58 but boost the low end. It is very adjustable. If the "boom" is spinning on you, right where it comes through the body of the mic is a flat tightening apparatus with the Shure logo on it. Tighten that and you are ok. I use it behind a regular kit and when playing congas and have had very little feedback problems. The "in ear" monitor send is great, too. I would like an on/off switch on it, too, though.
