Was having issues trying to get 2 mics with 1/4" mono jacks to work with a mixer I had. Tried a 1/4" mono to XLR adapter and those didn't work. Still not sure if those old mics are bad or the adapters I bought were junk. So I was forced to fork out a little more dough and I bought this mic. I was relieved and excited when right out of the box it just worked with my mixer, no hiccups or wondering why its not working, nope, it just worked, no questions asked. The way its "cardoid design" is supposed to pick up sound is great for the PA system in a gym application I use it for. It only picks up my voice and does a great job at not picking up anything the PA's speakers are playing. Thanks to the mixer I have I can use the mic to over music that's already playing, make gym-wide announcements easily so everyone can hear them loud and clear, even sing karaoke if I want. Comes with it's own clip which I assume could just screw onto a mic stand, also a "Shure" brand...
I bought this because I wanted to have a home karaoke setup on a semi-low budget without sacrificing too much quality.
I don't have any experience with what high-end (expensive) mics are supposed to sound like, but I do have experience with what crappy mics sound like. I am referring to the ones you use at your typical Korean karaoke bars.
If you have a decent singing voice ( but not winning American Idol any time soon ), you are probably looking for mics that do a good job of reproducing your voice without breaking the bank. I believe this mic fits that criteria very well. When I sing through it, I feel that it is an accurate (to my ears) reproduction of my voice and it feels good to hear it. I don't feel that way with cheaper, lower-quality mics.
I also decided to get wired instead of a budget wireless mic because I reasoned that more of the costs it took to make the mic went towards making it sound good, rather than making it work wirelessly...
The mic comes with a pouch for you to keep the mic, a mic holder, and an XLR cable and other accessories. The quality of the mic itself is superb with very clean vocals when I tested it. As with all cardioid mics, you need to talk/sing straight into the head or the sound will trail off when your mouth is not facing the mic. Very good deal. Highly recommended
