Summary: I was actually given one of these for Christmas by a fellow bandmate and I must say, this is probably the best mic I've had period. The sound is so clean and works perfectly with my preamps. In my personally opinion, this is the best for vocals. The price may be a bit harsh on the wallet but this thing has taken some hard bumps and it's still in perfect condition with no sound issues whatsoever. So I believe it's pretty durable and will last you a long time.
Excerpt: The Audio-Technica AE6100 is a dynamic hypercardioid microphone that cost 170 USD. The Audio-Technica AE6100 will make your voice sound full and rich. The warmth of this microphone is what shocked me; I could not believe how good it made my voice sound. The best part of it is that it only picks up your voice and nothing else.
Excerpt: When I found myself with all the Audio-Technica Artist Elite microphones, I was dumbfounded at the sheer quality of these microphones. When it comes to stage mics, Audio-Technica isn't really a company that most people would take a second look at, but that's because everyone's too busy comparing every model to the legendary SM58.
Summary: Ich kann es mit dem Shure SM-58 und einem AKG C900 Kondensatormikrofon vergleichen. Das AE 6100 liegt irgendwo zwischen den beiden. Das SM-58 ist glaube ich das Mikrofon, das am wenigsten Rückkopplungen (das schöne hohe Pfeifen) erzeugt. Da ist das Audio Technica nah dran, aber nicht ganz auf gleicher Höhe. Alles andere macht das Audio Technica besser. Mehr Klarheit, mehr Verständlichkeit, einen ausgeglicheneren Klang, mehr Stimmen-Timbre, mehr Druck.
