As someone who uses Audix proudly, we used this mic for the vocals in our worship team at church, compared to the other brands we had this one definitely left the competition in the dust. With the cardioid pattern, it does an incredible job at basically rejecting bleed from other things around the instrument or vocals the mic is on. We use stage wedge floor monitors and we always had feedback issues with our mics, not with this one! Incredible feedback protection (my words for it). The sleek black design looks simply elegant on the stage too!

Comments about Audix f55 Cardioid Vocal Microphone:

This is not a 58. Sounds good, looks good, and works great but it is a little weak for lead vocals in a rock band. Used two to mic our guitar amps this last weekend and they sounded good; a little to bright for me maybe, but we were short a couple of 57's and these worked good. Great for back-up vocals though and at the stupid price who cares you can never have too many good mics around.

          Comments about Audix f55 Cardioid Vocal Microphone:

          I bought this mic to use in a metal band, but didn't like the way it overly enhanced the highs and didn't pick up the low end well. Put it on a stand for our singer/guitarist to use and it sounded beautiful.

          Nothing on the product. This is meant for singing not gutturals, and for singing, it's great.

                Comments about Audix f55 Cardioid Vocal Microphone:

                I am using this primarily for vocals in a well-established band that performs live frequently and records periodically in our studio. I have found this mic to be as reliable and responsive as a 58. It may have a slightly boosted higher frequency response when compared to a 58. This is helpful when playing with a full band, as it allows the vocals to cut through the mix just enough without having make too many adjustments on the board. My go-to mic for vocals is a Shure Super 55, but i will use this as a backup mic and will periodically switch it out with the super 55. Also I purchase this ona DOTD for 29 - if I had know better, I would have purchased 2 more.

                    Comments about Audix f55 Cardioid Vocal Microphone:

                    An excellent vocal microphone for a rehearsal space or gigging. I've had a stable of Shure SM58's for years, and bought this on the Stupid Deal of the Day sale just to try it out. Noticeably brighter and very slightly hotter gain-wise than the 58, it works well to cut through a cluttered mix or bring out darker vocal ranges. It may need some treble EQ work in a live setting to be sure it doesn't cut to the point of being harsh.

                    You can't expect much more than this in the SDOTD price range. If it's on sale and you're on the fence, go for it.

                            Great simple everyday mic for use with instruments or voice. I use these as backups (if a mic fails and need an instant replacement), and for instrument placement (drums/amps). Great sound for the money.

                              Not all mics seem to work for female vocals. I read good reviews about the Audix F55 and it was on Stupid Deal of the Day so it was worth comparing to my Shure SM58 and Beta58 for a female lead. It is clear and strong and didn't feed back with close monitors. Her voice cut well through the mix. I will try it for studio recording.
