  • Excerpt: I started using this model in 1970 and 40 years later, it is still tops of all the microphones I have used. I have a Sennheiser e845 (another great mic) but I like the Shure 565 best for live stage vocals. The tonal coloration of the 565 can't be beat.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use
  • Cons: none

"chrome?"

stompboxjon, Audiofanzine
12 April 2012
  • Excerpt: The Frequency response is 50 to 15,000 hz which is pretty standard. And as stated before it’s a chrome plated mic. Which looks really nice but I don’t want a nice looking mic if it cost more than my other mics and doesn’t sound any different. You must just be paying for the chrome plate with the Shure 564 SD because my SM58 sounds jus the same. ...

" Good collector, very useful"

sardonicus, Audiofanzine
24 June 2011
  • Excerpt: 25 years of use. I tested nearly every song in micro dynamics over the period, well it's not ridiculous, it's warmer than 58, beefier, less prone to feedback. I use it mainly for vocals live. I've even used both as a couple of overheads for the record quickly, well they were anything but ugly. The most disastrous thing I find is their look Frenc...
