Industry standard for a reason
soulcat, 12.04.2019
The SM58 is Industry standard fo dynamic handheld mics for a reason. Maybe the Beta58 suits you better, though. A short omparison:

1) Beta58 Hypercardioid, SM58 Cardiod - so the Beta58 shows a significantly more directed pickup pattern, which can be good or bad, depending on how much you can control your mic positon and how the monitors are set up (cardioid is least sensitive on the rear, hypercardioid is least sensitive on the sides).

2) Beta58 has a significantly higher output level at similar SPL - if you are working with less expensive preamps this can be a big advantage. With the SM58, it depends a lot on the preamp used if you get pro level results or not.

3) Beta58 has an extended high frequency response, it's high mids / low highs ('presence') are a little faint, but can be easily EQed in, as it takes EQ very well.

4) Overall built quality is better at the Beta58: Hardenend grill, better damping of handling noise. In combination with midrange gear (Focusrite Scarlett series interfaces for example) I prefer the Beta58, as the missing mid / presence peak (it's only 'disadvantge' compare to the SM58) can be EQed in easily, but the higher output level is a real advantage: It gives you a better signal to noise ratio. If you use high end gear with good preamps the SM58 can deliver excellent results, too, though when the budget is big enough you'd rather go with a high-end handheld condenser instead (for example Neumann KMS105), unless you are very loud on stage...

For those of you who have still not been introduced to a SM58
Glenn9675, 16.09.2015
Personally I don't think a review is required for a SM58, but for those of you who are fairly new to the game, and are not just simply looking for a mic, but looking to invest in a piece of equipment that will be with you for MANY years.......... Read on!

As far as I'm concerned, if you had to look up the word "microphone" in the dictionary, it would say "See Shure SM58"
The SM58 has just about been around since the beginning of time. It's the ultimate vocal microphone. It's not only extremely robust, but is able to transfer all the vocal frequencies you throw at it though to your mixing desk, whether it be soft female vocals, or loud male vocals from a thrash metal band, so it can really take a beating on being shouted into and doesn't distort.

In an emergency you can use it pretty much across the stage, it will even handle the sound pressure from a snare drum, but there are better mics suited for that.

I have just purchased another two from Thomann, not because my others wore out, but just to add to my mic collection. I have got one particular SM58 that is 20 years old this year, and as expected, there is no audible difference between that one and the new ones I've just bought. The only thing I've done to the old one, eight years ago, was replace the grill, because many years of abuse being dropped by various musicians along the way.

So if you're still trying to make up your mind about whether to go for a SM58 or not, just buy one anyway, and make up your mind later.
Thanks to Thomann again for having them at such a good price!!

Perfect handheld podcast microphone
RandomDev, 08.09.2020
I was looking for a pair of handheld microphones for on-the-go podcast. What separated this from the rest of similar price range microphones, was the handling noise rejection and sound.

I really like the sound profile of this microphone. It sounds great when you listen to it live with headphones. I also like to add a bit more bass in post to get that perfect "studio radio/podcast" sound feel. Easy!

The handling noise rejection is extremely good. I don't use stands for my podcasts, since that'd require carrying microphone stands and a table on location, which is not always available. Me and a guest would just sit on whatever chairs or sofas are available and make ourselves comfortable. Holding the microphone is also fun.
If you want to save $50 for the same sound quality, you can, but you lose the low handling noise, which for me is worth it.

Durability is well-known and I don't need to worry about breaking this.

You get a carrying pouch for it, which is very useful. I wish it was a smaller.

If I had to say something negative about the microphone, then it'd be the weight. It's a little heavy.

proven quality and sturdiness
mlaxx, 29.04.2021
I bought three of these. The sound is beautiful. Even though people recommend them mostly for live gigs, we have zero problems with recording professional quality audio from these things. It works great even as a replacement for the SM57 for instrument recording if you don't have that. They are quite sturdy too, proven by unintentionally smashing one on the floor. The cap got dented, but nothing came loose. It just works.
