Excerpt: I bought these mikes to record orchestra and symphonic band concerts. While I cannot address differences between Shure microphone models, I can say that the difference in audio between the in-camera mikes (on everything from consumer camcorders to a pro-level Sony EX-1) is astounding.

Excerpt: My experience with the Shure SM94 is somewhat limited to date, but I have used it in a few different situations, including for acoustic guitar and scratch vocals. While the SM94 isn't my favorite sounding microphone for these applications, it does have a good enough sound to get the job done well. It doesn't have any special features, and in f...
Excerpt: Used for a year and a half, live and studio, it's tough. It is quite prcis, not garish, it may be a little cold compared more oriented micro studio. Small default, it provides low enough "smooth" and clean, which can be an advantage but I think feels like a lightweight lack of color. I like his versatility, and as I did not pay dearly I think th...
