You get that you pay for and expect from Shure
Paulius.PS, 14.04.2021
With some doubt and suspense I decided to pull the trigger on luxurious Shure KSM8 N, but I guess it is justified now, after + two years of use. Microphones can be "individual taste" thing, that's for one person, could sound a bit bitter for another. I am not good singer, more leaning towards rock, this mic is kind a indulge thing for my voice, but it is rewarding and boosting then you jump from basic dynamic mics to something more special. Vocals sound more smooth rounded, with added brilliance, but if you have quirky voice it adds on that up too obviously. It can be forgiving thanks to the proximity effect. There is wide range of a "sweet spot" you can play around with, hence it's easier to handle and predict how you want to handle your vocals. You may loose some gritt compared to lower tier mics, but you add brilliance on top of that. Not sure if this mic is diverse for all vocals (for the rock or grittier singer I would suggest simpler option), but after awhile you almost adjust to the mic peculiarites. Didn't try record guitar with this one but I guess SM57 would be better option for that.

Von Anfang an hat mich die Übertragung dieses guten Stückes positiv beeindruckt, - bis heute. Es hat einen Charakter, Klarheit, Wärme und Kraft die meine Stimme zu meiner grossen Freude motivierend überträgt. Die Suche, und die Investition in meine Entscheidung haben sich WIRKLICH gelohnt! Für mich echt optimal. Super ist zudem, das ich mich weiterhin beim E-Gitarre spielen im gewissen Rahmen weiterhin tänzerisch bewegen kann - und meine Stimme weiterhin gut übertragen wird. RRAVO!!!
