Excellent Quality Mic..with a caveat

Shure KSM44APublished on 07/06/13 at 10:18
Solid, super well built professional STUDIO microphone, solid state/transformer-less 'pletharos' design. Multi-pattern. Incredibly low self noise. LARGE diaphragm condenser.

OVERALL OPINION

Quality of sound is excellent. Build quality phenomenal. Built-in pop filter protection (3 screen layers. Natural, uncolored sound. A vocal mic that excels on other sources as well.

Shure says this microphone is for 'critical applications' and they are right. A proper sound from a microphone this sensitive will HEAVILY depend on positioning, being able to distance the mic from the singer/source; which in turn depends on the surrounding acoustic environment.A less sensitive mic would be less dependent on the surrounding environment.

Unless you have a good acoustic space set up I would NOT recommend this mic for a noisy or somewhat noisy home studio. It will pick up everything as well as the noise outside; and tiny reflections from the room as well. This mic will pick up all vocal 'mechanical' noises (lip-smacking, saliva noises, etc) as well as any imperfect acceptations that a singer might have.That is why I would say this mic is "Unforgiving".
I ended up selling the mic because for my voice it brought out my sibilance issues, and I tried everything (positioning/distance) and could NOT get rid of MY sibilance SIGNIFICANTLY at the mic.....

PLeas know that this issue, though,is NOT a character of the mic..every mic resonates a certain way with certain voices...and some mics are just not right for certain people. I have owned the mic for a couple of months, and have use it a lot for vocals/guitar. If I had to get another shure it would be the KSM 32 due to the flatter frequency response and lower sensitivity. My pre was an Focusrite ISA ONE
