Cardioid polar pattern rejects ambient noise
The uniform cardioid polar pattern of the Beta 87C enables users to effectively reject ambient noise arriving at the rear of the microphone, an attribute that will be especially appealing to users of personal monitors and others who frequently experience undesirable sounds bleeding into their mixes.

by Donald F. Van Selus from Temecula CAAn excellent microphone for studio and live vocal use. Great upper mid range response and presence without thinning out vocals.

Smooth and Honest!
by Steve Schriemer from Ann Arbor, MI USAI purchased this mic through Sweetwater over a year ago and since then I've played about 20 shows with this mic. I LOVE IT! I've been really pleased with how natural it sounds. It sounds great on my v... read more [+]oice and it doesn't sound too harsh when I mic my harmonica with it. This microphone allows me to bring studio quality sound to a live gig, which makes me very happy. It's been worth every penny. The only downside to this mic is that it will feedback if you have a loud drum set behind your vocalist, but if you're a solo artist like me, or if you play a quieter style of music, than this mic is perfect.

I've also used this mic in my home studio with wonderful results. I'd recommend this mic to anyone who is looking to give their live sound that "intimate sound," or "Studio Magic." It's a great microphone and I hope you'll be able to enjoy it just as much as I have! close [-]
great in house mic
by scott g solly from bright indianaI've been using this mic for over a year now and i can say that this mic really sounds great, from all the soft spoken to the screaming and everything in between. I recorded my vocals in my bedroom wi... read more [+]th street noise yelling kids and a furnace running and it didn't pick any of that up, just my vocal so i would recomend this for those who need to isolate outside noise in the house. My only issue it that i had to by a foam cover for extra protection against the pops because the internal foam only does so much.

Absolutely outstanding! We replaced our high-end condenser vocal mics with four of the Shure Beta 87C mics and the change in clarity was remarkable. I was instantly using less EQ and blending the vocals much quicker. The vocalists also noticed right away and could hear each other through the monitors better. This made everything easier by focusing on the house mix and not the monitor mix. The Beta 87C is my new benchmark for quality in live vocal microphones!
