I can't believe how great this microphone sounds.
I was looking for dynamic microphone with condenser mic flavor to record spoken word female voices. My SM58, while reliable and ok sounding, yielded recordings that felt boring and lifeless.
Upon reading many reviews and considering the likes of the Shure SM7B and Electro Voice RE20 (which I already have extensive experience with), I opted to save some cash and pull the trigger on the M80.
I wasn't disappointed.
I record primarially in loud, untreated rooms and I found the noise rejection (a critical factor) to be outstanding. They make male voices sound great, but female voices sing beautifully with a beautifully sweet top end. It's also sensitive enough to handle softly spoken voices. A huge plus.
One of the primary reasons I chose it was due to its size, it's unintimidating appearance, and its durability. This one isn't slipping out of your hands, and if it does, the it will be just fine.
I'm very pleased.
