    Great workhorse for the serious vocalist

    I purchased this mic for my wife who is a singer. For the past 6 years she has been taking it everywhere, from local gigs to touring all over the world. Vocalists get to deal with a lot of bias from sound people, who for example will place all their expensive Neumann condensers in front of the sax players and trumpets, and then hand the vocalist a cheapo Shure SM58. Great mic when all you need is cut through in loud rock, but not a mic that renders the subtleties and expression of your vocal performance in its well-conditioned glory, like any quality musical performance deserves.Bringing this mic to the show (and tell them about the phantom power!) ensures you will sound like you. A sturdy and reliable mic that provides a truthful and pleasant rendering of your voice that you can count on.Expensive, but worth it many times over if you care about YOUR voice.

    Exceptional Mic

    This is an exceptional mic and just what you might expect from Neumann. Crystal clear and accurate, great feedeback rejection. Good or bad, it captures everything in your voice. I had been using Sennheiser 935 and the venerable SM 58 and Beta 58. None of those are even close. Spendy but worth it

    Like Putting on Seven League Boots

    I absolutely LOVE this mic. It is very present. It picks up every nuance of your voice and emotion and it perfectly suits my mic style - which is super close up on it. I upgraded from an SM58 to an AKG 535, which was pretty good. Say, the power of ten better. But to upgrade to this from the AKG was incredible. Seven league boots possibly doesn't even do it justice.

    This microphone is totally top-notch. I was working sound for a jazz variety show, and we had a number of microphones on the stage. I noticed this one and approached it, curious because of the clarity I was hearing on our saxophones. I turned it over and noticed it was a Neumann. I was excited, to say the least, to be working with a $700 microphone. We used it on a vocalist in one of the ensembles, and his voice just shined. The clarity and smooth quality of the vocals were exactly what youŽd expect out of one of the most famous, most expensive stage microphones on the market. Working with one of these today was truly a highlight of my life.

    Had a vocalist bring one of these with her for a gig. It's an amazing mic. Kinda steep price point for a handheld vocal, but worth it if you want the quality.

    nothing comes close

    I wish this mic had come out ten years ago - maybe I'd be a better singer today - you can hear when you go a little flat or sharp where as other live mics don't catch every harmonic like this one - - i really love it
