this mic is an excellent choice for live performances. it has a full and balanced sound that cuts through a mix of heavy guitars. i was surprised that this kind of quality could be attained at this price. EV does a great job with their COBALT series of mics. Many of you might want to compare it to a SM58. DON'T compare the two. Each mic is excellent. The EV has just the right sound color to make you smile as soon as you hear it. Most sound engineers won't have any problem putting this mic in the right spot of the mix. The one thing a SM58 has going for it is familiarity. [*] This mic won't be a problem either. I didn't notice any issue with handling noise and the weight distribution feels natural and balanced in your hand. rock on.

Mic is decent build quality, I used it head to head with Sm58 and sound difference can be heard for sure. Handling noise is very high. Mic is still good buy at the price I paid for it. I wasn't looking to replace any of my 1st order mics but just bought it due to the deal that I was able to get. It is a decent mic for people that are on the budget.

    By MickeyJay

    from Indiana

    Comments about Electro-Voice Co9 Cobalt Premium Vocal Mic:

    Good sound, but the issue for me is the same as every low priced mic I have seen -- handling noise. I think the sound is excellent but it has quite a bit more handling noise than my Shure and Sennheiser mics.Like the Behringer XM8500, a great mic if you stick it in a stand and forget it. If you are handheld or like to play with the mic stand, stick with the Sennheiser or Shure.

    Great mic at a great price

    By Big D-KERD8

    from Grand Rapids, MI

    Comments about Electro-Voice Co9 Cobalt Premium Vocal Mic:

    Electro Voice has always had a reputation for quality. This is the first EV mic I have owned. Although I like the Shure mics, the Cobalt 9 is my primary microphone of choice. It makes me sound great. They hold up great. My future microphone purchases will be EV.

    Good Soung Bad Handling

    By DollarBen

    from Greenville, SC

    Comments about Electro-Voice Co9 Cobalt Premium Vocal Mic:

    This mic definitely has good clear pickup, but the handling noise may end up being an issue. just the slightest bump or touch of the stand gets picked up. If you plan to put it on a stand and have a no touching policy you should be okay.

    Comments about Electro-Voice Co9 Cobalt Premium Vocal Mic:

    This is a durable, great sounding microphone for the price and it is solidly made, too. I sing backup vocals and I use the Cobalt 9 for practice and performances - it hasn't let me down. The vocal pattern helps eliminate feedback and the mic is stout, with a high-quality feel. Highly recommended for the price and especially if it is on sale!

      Comments about Electro-Voice Co9 Cobalt Premium Vocal Mic:

      I've only had it for a week. It seems to record okay, although I put a pop fiter on it. For some reason though theres a low hum when I let it sit in the holder on the michrophone stand. But when I take it out of the holder the hum goes away. I'm wondering if it's picking up some vibration in the house. So, it seems okay, but it is a bit spooky at this point.

      Style and Quality

      By DoItAll

      from Rochester, NY

      Comments about Electro-Voice Co9 Cobalt Premium Vocal Mic:

      Man, is this thing a great deal. I bought mine a year and a half ago and there's nothing wrong with it at all. The sound quality out of it is great for live performances and i've recently even used it for recordings in my band for more of a rough cut. The Co9 is built like a tank and will last you pretty long. I own a Shure sm58 as well and i prefer this mic. The grille on my shure broke off within a year of using it on and off with this mic, and it seems a bit shaky at times, still a good mic. But my Co9 shows no signs of coming apart anytime soon. Great buy, will keep until it falls apart

      Comments about Electro-Voice Co9 Cobalt Premium Vocal Mic:

      It sounds fine with light singing, but if you scream or project loudly, the quality diminishes extremely. The sound cracks and is very distorted. It's fine for coffee shop acoustic gigs, but terrible for a rock or metal band.

                bought three of the Electro Voice Cobalt 9 microphones for my PA system. I used them this weekend when I was sound tech for a local band. Alongside Beta 58's I couldn't tell the difference as far as clarity and the way they cut through the mix. No feedback issues at all on a very tight stage. These are clear and hot mics that will get the job done for a rock band. I did notice a slight bit of handling noise but not enough to care about. I only wish I had discovered them sooner.
