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. The audio from these mikes is miles ahead in terms of clarity, distortion, and coloration. I am very happy with these microphones.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Versatile
Nice SDC, pretty flat not hyped response with a little bass roll off

Summary: Great SDC for the price. Pretty flat frequency response with a little bass roll off, no pad, no low cut (if you have a preamp with pad it doesn´t matter that much). Nice sound for drum overheads and general use in stage or studio as well.
Summary: The Shure SM94 is a small diaphram condenser microphone with a cardioid pickup pattern. It has a very flat frequency response. It can be powered using either phantom power or an internal AA battery, which is great when you don't have phantom power available. It is an extremely natural sounding mic; great for recording, drum overheads, strings or brass, anything where you want to capture or reinforce an uncolored sound. Highly Recommended.
Excerpt: The Shure SM94 is a small diaphragm electret condenser microphone that I have used in the recording studio. You can probably use it for live shows as well, but I haven't used it for this application as I don't do live sound and only do work in the recording studio. It wasn't until pretty recently that I had even heard of the SM94 let alone used it, as they seem to be pretty rare.
