This microphone is made by Shure, it is a dynamic vocal microphone that has a classic look to it. It has a supercardioid polar pattern and a great frequency response for speeches or vocals. The presentation value of this microphone is why it sells though. If you put this microphone on a stand and put it on stage it will look amazing and your audience will notice is. It comes with a swivel stand mount too. It does not have an on and off switch which would be a huge plus so that it could be turned off when not being used. We like to keep our mics on stage during our whole set mainly because we do not have a stage crew to switch things in and out so for that reason we cannot use this microphone some times because we do not want to go through the process of removing it from stage. Sometimes we use this microphone toward the end of our set so we will not have to remove it and can finish with it.

OVERALL OPINION

The sound quality of this microphone is truly amazing, I have not heard many Shure mics in a live setting that can sound like this one can and still look this great. You can use this in a studio too and be just as happy with it as you will be on stage.
The Shure Super 55 Deluxe does a great job with handling feedback and getting rid of external noise too. This mic is not for anything other than vocals and if you try to record an instrument with it you will be let down. Let this microphone be your on stage vocal mic as long as it not having an off or on switch effects your set up. I do hope they come out with another version with an on and off switch on it.
