Comments about CadLive D90 Supercardioid Dynamic Handheld Microphone:

This microphone is the best I've ever used. I've had various wireless mics over 30 years in the music business as well as the tried and true Shure SM58. This microphone is highly detailed in its ability to pick up all nuances of your voice. Crystal clear and sensitive enough to pick up speech at a distance as well. I love the so much I've bought 3 of them and have been telling all my friends and acquaintances about them. Buy one - you'll love it for sure!

      Ok I've owned a lot of mic's in 30 years of professional on stage work.... If you are looking for a great mic for under a buck and a half , this is it....I use in ear monitors and to really understand how good this mic is, use head phones or in ear monitors to hear how crisp and clear these babies are.... They have great range and are not boomy. They have a nice tight pickup pattern. I applaud CAD on this product ... my mates are going to move their present mic's to standby, and purchase these awesome critters...You should also !

        Comments about CadLive D90 Supercardioid Dynamic Handheld Microphone:

        I'm a gigging musician that plays covers in bars. I have always used the tried and true SM58, but these came up in SDOD, so I bought a couple and I'm impressed.

        I did a side by side comparison between this and my 58: This mic is a bit hotter than the 58. It is very clear, and maybe a little more pronounced in the highs, but I didn't mind as it still sounded very natural. Other than that, if I had been blindfolded I wouldn't have known the difference.

        The construction feels very solid and it's got some decent weight to it. The snap-shut box it comes with is a nice add on. Only time will tell, but it feels like it will be very durable and gig-worthy. I would recommend this mic as a perfectly acceptable alternative to Shure.

          Comments about CadLive D90 Supercardioid Dynamic Handheld Microphone:

          I use this mic for lead vocals. Its dynamic features compare to my sm 58 for about 1/3rd of the price. Been using Shure products for years. The P-90 is also a good choice for micing instruments but may want to use
          a windscreen to help keep out unwanted sounds. (this is not a directional mic)

          Comments about CadLive D90 Supercardioid Dynamic Handheld Microphone:

          Very detailed / clean / clear sound. Not nasal like the well known 58 and more detailed with more sibilance (brighter top end). In my opinion, this is an excellent performance (road) mic. I also prefer it over the famous "beta" model. Now Novices, keep in mind that the experienced have lots of mics simply cause the all reproduce sound slightly different. Technology has come a long way to date, so most mics actually sound good! I can't imagine someone not liking this mic. As a side note, the model 89 is EXCELLENT at micing an amp. 5 stars simply cause of the first five words.

              Comments about CadLive D90 Supercardioid Dynamic Handheld Microphone:

              I saw a review of the D89 and D90 mikes in Live Sound International magazine when CAD first introduced the line. The review was very complimentary for both. The writer had used both for vocals and instruments and he said they were good for both uses. I have other N/Dym mikes and like them a lot for all applications. Another pro review mentioned that they had deliberately dropped the mike a few times and didn't even dent the grill.

              I bought two CAD condensers as a pair a year ago for recording and they are little workhorses.

              The D90 is hot like a Beta 58 but it doesn't have a pronounced proximity effect so if you're looking for the bass boost for up close work you should be using a Shure, I suppose. I've used this mike on two gigs and two rehearsals and I think they sound great. The are what I would call "transparent" sound. Except for a little boost in the upper end like all N/Dyms these mikes are clear as a bell and reproduce my vocal perfectly. So there you go. The SDOTD price was so stupid I bought two without even blinking. Also the cases and clips are a bonus.

                I've been using a Shure SM 58 Beta for live gigs for years. I thought I could use a backup just incase and picked the D90 up for that reason. I have been using it exclusively since I got it and cant tell the difference from the 58. It feels solid but only time will tell if it is truly road worthy. I will give it two thumbs up so far.

                  A local music store convinced me to try a CAD D89 as a backup vocal performance mic. I tried it in place of my SM58 and liked it so much, it became my primary mic for all my gigs. When I saw the D90 in the Stupid Deal of the Day, it was a no-brainer. I've been using the D89 for 2 years (100+ gigs), and now also have the D90. Very responsive, very clear, and never an issue.

                            Good clean and warm sounding mic. Got it on sale but I think it's worth the full price as well. I have many different mics Shure, Sennheiser, EV, that I use for live performances. I didn't do any side by side comparison, but it's pretty obvious that this mic will stand up to them. Happy with this purchase.
