« A product to fight Neumann KMS and Shure KSMs...and to win against them »

Publié le 01/03/18 à 17:37
Value For Money : Excellent
Audience: Anyone
We experienced approximately 3-5db more gain before feedback from the AE5400, in comparison to both the SM58 and the Neumann KMS 104.

The 350-500 Hz dib it has is very useful, because it's a frequency the live mixer always pulls anyway and it takes away lower mid mud from the sound.

The high end is very articulate and clear. It can sometimes be a little bright for a PA, but taking a db or 2 off at the top, should help enough to end up with a finished, polished, close to Studio sound.

We were all very impressed with how much authority and unbelievable performance could come across from the singers to the audience. You never realize how much can get lost on the way from mouth through mic, mixer, speakers to ears...and making the first element in the chain better, definitely improved the experience, our audiences have had, since we used this mic.

Very happy with it. Clear contender in the Neumann range, with a better rejection, slightly less openness, but more mid and high end resolution than its Shure counterpart.

For the used prices of 150-250$, you can't go wrong with these.

If you do pop, are a singer songwriter, a cleaner Indie singer or even a shouter in a metal band....this mic has worked its wonders and everybody has always asked what this mic is...they couldn't believe the quality.
