I bought these for use at a local political forum. The candidates had all been used to either the pass-around SM58 or a couple on stands they had to move to. When they saw these on the table, they were at first nervous and confused that the audience would not hear them. One asked what I would do if he picked it up and spoke directly into it - I told the first response would be to turn it off . . .
At the end of the forum, the candidates and audience and those who produced the event all agreed that this was the best sound yet.
There will be a stage show coming up soon where ZI have used 5 mics on stands across the front - this time it will be the AT PRO44s. I anticipate a fine sound with a much cleaner sight line.
I am happy!
