Summary: I own an original Shure 55SH (approx. circa 1960) which works great still, but this 55SH Series II is much more responsive than the older model. Not quite as heavy. It sounds great and the finish is very nice. Overall, no complaints, just praise.
Excerpt: I use the Shure 55SH for college game Public Address. The sound is flawlessly clean and dynamic. I can't believe I went without this mic for so long. The sound is worth every penny. It is also the first mic people actually notice for its aesthetics. It gets compliments and comments every game.
Pros: beautiful, Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use
Summary: Like the product very much. Price was steep but I needed it. Like the sound it produces. Haven't had a problem but if I did I have info to get it fixed. I like the longevity of this type of microphone.
