Wow! I'm Blown Away

Best bang for the buck... EVER! I was leary of Blue stage mics to begin with. Now I wish I had taken advantage of the BOGO offer when it was available. I have a number of Shure mics that have just been replaced the Blue Encore 200. I may even try the Encore 300 now. This a solid piece of equipment with minimal handling noise and the almost eliminates proximity issues you'll find other mics. I can stand close or far and still hit a lick. Didn't have a problem with feedback at all. I would recommend this to anyone. P.S. It looks and sounds so good that it really turned some heads the first time I used it... Michael V. Perea

Expected great, got amazing!

I have used the Encore 100 before, and was surprised at how much easier it was to work with compared to an SM58 in both live sound and studio work. When I saw the buy one get one deal, I couldn't resist picking up the Encore 200. It works beautifully on everything I've tried so far--better than an RE20 on a bass cabinet, crisp on floor toms and snares, and powerful on vocals. My Rhodes absolutely sings through the suitcase amp with the Encore 200 on axis with the cone. The phantom power requirement shouldn't bother anyone in 2014, and this is a hot mic both in output and in looks. As long as you understand and work around the proximity effect (which impacts nearly every mic out there...), this mic will turn into a go-to for you.

Best Live Vox Mic for it's price range

This mic should be valued at $225 because it is the real deal. Blue just keeps making great products. Great Bass Response, Perfect highs, even mid-range, & CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP. + it's Active, get that extra volume with Phantom Power capability. This mic is ONLY $150???? Wow. Can you charge a little MORE so I don't feel bad making such a steel?

Great All Around Mic

I am using this mic for an "off label" use: recording spoken word for audio book narration. Without any preamp, the sound is wonderfully clean and rich. We tested this mic by recording in an open room with no sound sound shielding. I was amazed at the lack of ambient noise picked up; almost studio clean! In the recording booth, I hooked the enCORE 200 to a BLUE Robbie Preamp. I was able to get some working distance and still get a full rich sound without any EQ needed to boost the presence. Previously, we'd been using some fairly high end mics touted as broadcast quality. While I can't fault them for quality, the voice through the enCORE need no tweaking to get that rich sound people love to hear. BLUE has a great reputation. This mic will only send that reputation higher!

Great Mic!

My wife borrowed this mic when we did a gig and she fell in love with it! Awesome clarity and the active power indicator is pretty shnazzy to have. I bought it for her for her birthday and I couldn't be happier with it.
