  • Pros: beautiful high end, nice, responsive low end, mid range is sweet
  • Cons: with larger bassy voices, like mine, it can make mixes get muddy, without EQ'ing.

"Pretty Good"

johnrae, Audiofanzine
21 June 2012
  • Excerpt: My favorite thing about this mic is the quality of sound and build. It's simply a piece of art, and a GREAT deal at 400 bucks. Mics like this that are cheaper, awesome quality, and well built are being released to fill the gap between low end and very high end mics. It's a great time to take advantage of the deals companies are offerning on grea...

"well rounded"

17 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Some of the key features of the SM 27 are that it can react very quick and use its mesh layers to reduce wind and popping noises on your “P” words. This mic is not really made for instruments but I have used it on some before and it seemed to work great. I have actually even seen It in a local rock station being used to interview people such as ...

"very good mic for cheap"

20 December 2011
  • Excerpt: I've been using the Shure KSM27 for a few months here and there as a cheap option for laying down ideas.  I believe that this is what the M-Audio Aries is best suited for and I don't think I would recommend using it for much else in terms of use in the studio.  It has a pretty decent overall sound, but lacks a certain fullness that I would look ...

  • Excerpt: The KSM27 is a great sounding microphone. Shure is very good with this, as over the years they have consistently failed to make a bad microphone. Just like its bigger brother the KSM32, the Shure KSM27 can fill a variety of roles. I've heard it on vocals, guitar, drum overheads, guitar cabs, and a bunch of other fun applications, like a wood blo...

"Affordably-priced condenser microphone"

mooseherman, Audiofanzine
19 September 2010
  • Excerpt: I like the surprisingly versatile use of this microphone. I have used a pair of them as overheads, which is a decidedly unique but often effective use for them. I have also used it in tandem with a dynamic mic on a guitar cabinet, which resulted in a fantastically detailed sound. I don't particularly like them as room mics as they don't have a m...

"I. Love. This. Mic."

JayDMusic, Audiofanzine
18 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Overall, I love it. I love it more than my unborn son. It's my go-to mic for everything vocal. I have rappers, singers, talkers, people who just speak and let the mic do the rest. I love this mic mainly for its ability to EQ just perfectly. It has an option for a heavy roll-off in the lower ranges, or a softer one. I choose the softer one, and i...

  • Excerpt: The Shure KSM27 is an overall great sounding condenser microphone. It's the perfect in between microphone, as it has a pro studio sound without having the large price tag. I've used the KSM27 for a variety of applications, including vocals, acoustic guitar, and a set of them as drum overheads one time. The mic has a very vibrant sound, with a...

29 October 2008
  • Excerpt: I have been using KSM mics pretty much since they came out. They are very common in nicer studios as well as home studios. It's very good sound quality for relatively short money, so it's no surprise these things sell very well. They are very solid and heavy mics as most Shure mics are, which is reassuring since you feel like you could drop i...
