« the Q7 is still better »

Published on 10/26/12 at 01:24
The Samson Q8 is an upgrade form the Q7. It is a supercardioid dynamic microphone that will keep all of your feedback issues away. It does cost a little more than the Q7 but I still think its under-priced. The Q8 will give you warm crystal clear vocals for your live set or performance. I do think this microphone sounds better on a female’s voice though, females have softer and lighter toned voices. A males voice is deeper and more harsh, and the Q8 just does not respond the same to a males voice as it does to a females. This is where I would say that the Q7 was better because it sounded great on both female and male voices and tones.

OVERALL OPINION

On a male voice, the lower tones and frequencies are a bit harsh for some reason. I am not sure why because the Q8 and Q7 have virtually the same exact specs. The Q8 handles feedback better than the Q7, but the Q7 hands male vocals/voices better. So it could be considered a tossup between the two microphones but if you ask me I still say that the Q7 is better than the Q8.

The Q8 has an impedance of 300 ohms and has a frequency range of 60Hz-16kHz. It does come with a microphone clip and a carry case. The Q8 is a solid microphone for a female’s voice, but if you are a male and want a good affordable stage microphone get the Q7. The Q7 will give you a better sound, and it will save you about 50 bucks in the process. If you want the Q8 because it has a better frequency range then go for it, but from my personal experience the Q7 is better. But the value for both of the microphones is great considering the money they cost. They are both affordable but the Q8 just is not as good as the previous Q7.
