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.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Versatile
Nice SDC, pretty flat not hyped response with a little bass roll off
4 February 2012
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.
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.
