Summary: The gain before feedback is a little over rated but all in all a very nice microphone. I have an Audix OM6 that is every bit as good as this microphone at less than 1/2 the price. If you're on a loud stage the Audix OM6 is more what you need no matter if your voice is soft or loud. The AE5400 is great for less loud environments in my opinion. Depends on your budget I suppose.
Summary: I love this mic! This is the best of the microphone that I had! Compared with the Neumann KMS-104 plus, KMS-105, AUDIX OM-5, OM-7, Shure Beta SM-87A! Very versatile microphone that will suit everyone and probably for any style of music! I will surely buy this microphone in the future and in this shop! Buy, highly recommend!
Summary: This is the real thing; a true studio recording mic built into a hand-held format. It cuts through the mix and is everything the manufacturer described. I'm a classically trained tenor with a 3 octave range. I saw Andrea Bocelli using this mic on his "Under the Desert Sky" DVD. I think there's a good reason he chose to use it. I own this mic and the Neumann kms 105. I like both equally, this mic is a little brighter in sound and hotter than the Neumann.
Summary: This product was as expected a great item durable with solid constuction great responce at all frequecies low feed back at high volume. I am a bass singer I needed a mike with maxinum responce at low frequencies this mike is capable of doing just that. clean and not a muddy sound.
Summary: This is the most responsive mic I've ever used. Audio Technica's website's description of the microphone is dead-on. There is very little "enhancement" or "coloration" from the mic, so it gives a much truer sound than any Beta, Shure 87's and many boutique mic's. If you have a smooth voice similar to Roy Orbison, or Chris Isaak this mic is perfect for you.

Excerpt: I think this is the best stage mic you can get. Better than Shure Beta 87A, Better than AKG D3900 and Better than Sennheiser E865 and about as nice as Neumann KMS105 for a lot less. I have used them all, and I'll stay with this one.
