Summary: This was my first microphone purchase, i was impressed with the results of using this mike. The range is quite good, went to different parts of the house and the mike worked very well. No distortion noted.
Summary: Great quality mic! Everything you would expect from Shure. The only problem I have is with the switch. It is a little bit recessed and is hard to turn on and off in a hurry. I am in the habit of turning off the mic when I am not talking and turning it on right before i speak. It is hard to do with this mic.
Summary: This microphone is virtually indestructible. Although this was a recent purchase I've used 58s for years and have counted on them in some pretty demanding situations. The frequency response is fairly flat except for a midrange peak about 3 KHz or so, thus vocals stand out in a mix without sounding un-natural.
Solid mic for vocals that can be used and abused night after night on stage

Summary: If you are looking for a high fidelity studio microphone, this is not it. It does sound good but it's not that type of mic. However if you are looking for a solid mic that can be used and abused on stage night after night, this is it. This is the choice of professionals. This mic is the industry standard for live performances. This mic is the vocal version of the SM57 which is for instruments. Nobody will ever laugh at you for showing up with this mic.
