Great mic!
Vadim V., 05.05.2015
I used to work with KSM32, and I really liked how my voice and acoustic guitar sounded with that mic. So I decided to try the KSM44A... and let me tell you - it didn't let me down! I really like it!
Great sound, and high build quality!
Great mic!

Ein Spitzenmikrofon.
Rommeldebommel, 18.08.2017
Das SHURE KSM 44 ist ein sehr hochwertiges Mikrofon, etwas das man angesichts des Preises auch erwarten darf. Es ist äußerst stabil, so wie alle Großmembran-Studiomikrofone von Shure. Es ist schon eine Freude, das Mikrofon in seine elastische Aufhängung (Spinne) zu schrauben. Das läuft wie geschmiert und das Ganze sieht auch sehr gut, man könnte sagen elegant aus. Auch der schöne Koffer macht Spaß.
Das Wichtigste ist natürlich der Klang. Ich habe viele Großmembran-Studio-Mikrofone, aber das KSM 44 gehört sicher zu den Allerbesten und ist auf einer Ebene mit Neumann, AKG und anderen Großen der Branche. Es ist nicht so neutral wie ein Neumann TLM 93, die unteren Höhen sind stärker ausgeprägt, so um 5 KHz, aber immer weich und sanft, ohne die leichte "Schärfe" wie das Sennheiser MK4. Unten herum klingt es vollmundig und ausgeglichen und auch die Mitten sind optimal. Das Mikrofon klingt sehr durchsichtig, transparent mit einer fantastischen Auflösung.
Ich bin begeistert und kann es absolut als Universalmikrofon für hochwertigste Sprach- Gesang- und alle Musikaufnahmen empfehlen.

Genau mein Ding
HeinziausP , 26.06.2020
Ich war immer recht unzufrieden mit meinen Mikros (immer im unteren Preissegment unterwegs gewesen) und einen Kredit wollte ich auch nicht aufnehmen, für einen ordentlichen Hobbysound. Das Shure hat meine Erwartungen jetzt aber tatsächlich voll und ganz erfüllt, Preis/Leistung ist absolut Top. Ich weiß dass etliche Leute mit der Präsenzanhebung vom KSM44a fremdeln, aber ich konnte nichts negatives im Klang erkennen, für mich ist er absolut sauber und sehr DA.
