petit professeur (Xavier)'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Shure Lyric 8700
On / Off button.
No coloration of the sound (do not even make a sound of scratching with).
Almost non-existent technology, if any.
What can I say? It gives you not even with the clip!


I use it for too long, may be 2 or 3 years with me (in the studio, I use the microphones prfre made available in the gnral SM58)

With effect pedals (Digitech Vocal 300), spent more, but it has not yet ...
I think this microphone is too sensitive: larsen death, kills his ear to be touched ds (Oufff, there is an ON / OFF). Also, I still have not figure out how much Russia make use of the effect of proximity ... trs pro not everything!
The rest of the trs (too) nature and "flat", but can be a force depending on the type of song.
Aside from its weight and its shell very hard to say "yes yes yes, it's a microphone!" I think we could almost compare it to my sister Barbie micro uses (almost).

However, if your beginners, the product is interesting for its price. I do not know much about the market but I think you will not find much better than a Shure 40s for 8700 euros.
Ds but when you have acquired a bit of vocal technique, including linking the operation of a microphone, you can not sing because of its carrying capacity.

I would put a small 4 becaufe the grid will not rust (you remember the SM 58) or not yet, and has an on / off button handy when feedback is to say all the time.

Shure Lyric 8700
Dynamic vocal microphone for scne, or rather for rptition in garage when not afford it. XLR connector, a cable with XLR / Jack, he has an ON / OFF button. And that's all.
8 becaufe I put no more in demand, from a cable XLR / XLR, and a little foam in the cardboard box, rather than a plastic bag bubbles.


I've had about two months, it has a very solid look and PSE weight, not like many other mics in the same price range (35 euros) plastic fake.
I tried other mics of all kinds (Beyer M88, Sennheiser MD22 and MKH416) but not in this price range. So a micro rotten, but it was better not expect, the bass is absent, serious as a small bump in the medium and treble that spit.

Good only grow when you do not care about the quality of sound, but for this application, behringer low-end are as good for less money with a briefcase ...

I do not have that choice would do.

Even when I put 3 becaufe the sound is clear (although ugly) and it does not blow too.
I compared this to the SM58 microphone (not that I like ADI) and I find the sound quite similar, but slightly more nasal and dsagrable in the treble. on the other hand, in terms of handling noise is the day and night! While SM58 cash well, the 8700 can not stand being touched, otherwise boomboom in the ears up essential ...

I compared a micro supemarch Phillips (all plastic, with welded cable jack. This is the same! Can not DTECT any diffrence in the microphone, in noise manipulation, or in the directivity. So that Phillips uses Shure capsules, may be that the two will provide in a Chinese specialist in capsules Go supermarket, I put 2 / 10 because now I have Oktava MK012, it gives an ide of what a micro ...

It's been a while since I sold this microphone! Now I have Oktava (MK012, MK102, MK103, MK319) and the ending for the Sennheiser Audix, and I will never touch these mics animation camping!

jimmyG's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Correct product"

Shure Lyric 8700
Cardioid dynamic microphone Frequency response: 50 - 15 kHz Impedance: 600 Ohm, Sensitivity: -52 dBV / Pa


This microphone was used mainly by the singer. It was used once for recording on a battery (toms) correct sound.
Ideal for singers because of it's frequency response (little breath, takes little pops)
While it has some problems with live feedback, it's good value for the right price.
