Unexpected outing for an Shure SM58S
Robert8105 15.11.2015
I've been reading about this legendry microphone for years, particularly as a mainstay of rock bands. I gave in and bought just one even though my small stable of microphones never go near rock bands although some do service in recording choirs.
Upon receipt, I examined it and tried the switch and thought that it seemed very slack however how could I justify sending it back as I had only one SM58S so no comparisons were possible. Not fazed by this possible problem, my SM58S had a somewhat unexpected first outing that is as a comperes' microphone on a Quiz Night. I was the Quizmaster and it performed faultlessly. That switch design was almost certainly meant to be slack as it switched effortlessly between on and off between questions.
Giving the microphone appropriate equalisation via the mixer it gave my voice a flattering good cadence. Not only that; when I gave our honoured guest a stint on reading the political questions selection, (she being our local MP) the SM58S gave her voice the same accurate projection as it did of mine.
Of note was that feedback was minimal or nonexistent which was surprising as the speakers were close by. Perhaps all SM58S users have known that for years.
Finally and of equal importance is to mention the shape and design. Again I had some pre-conceived idea when I first took it out of the box; too short and sloping grip not right ? How wrong could I be ! As soon as it was coupled to a XLR cable the feel of the SM58S was just right both in weight and design. Its apparent shortness (compared with some more recent designs) was just an absolute boon to an amateur quizmaster, such as myself, who has to hold a microphone for couple of hours in a crowded room where questions are read and an appropriate pause is the norm. I say, this bearing in mind that it is not appropriate at such events to stay in one place using a stand.
This microphone is one I highly recommend for all these reasons some of which were not anticipated.

Very decent microphone for a small price
BPCMediaTeam 24.02.2020
Bought and used already a few of those mics and after all this time I am still very pleased with their quality for this small price.

Pro:
- Good price
- Very decent sound for an dynamic mic
- Comes with bag and mic stand head

Cons:
The switch is from poor quality. A very gentle touch of it can turn the mic of (while in use) which is not something you want to happen during a live event/concert

Built like a tank
dooq 02.11.2017
I have full confidence this mic can be hung upside down from a crane and used as a bulldozer!! Only kidding! What I'm trying to say is it's built like a tank and feels quite weighty and solid in the hand.

Good performance however, I found it to be at tad too directional for my liking (in that if you're slightly off-axis there's quite a noticeable drop in sound level). Maybe this was just the way our speakers were using the mic.

Anyway, overall a very good purchase and solid performance from a respectable brand.

Great quality mic for a great price
Mari-Ann 13.06.2020
There are better mics out there, but if you want performance / live gig quality with a clean sound, I reckon this mic is the best fo the buck. It is also highly robust in design and construction so that it will sustain the knocks and bumps on the road

Industry standard, switch feels a little flimsy
Snoozeboy 26.01.2021
I bought it in a bundle, otherwise I would've got the non-switch version.

Classic microphone
Andreas Zzz 01.09.2017
As it was said before - probably most popular mic ever.
Everything as expected, nice bag included.
The only drawback - I would probably choose more super-cardioid one for future (e.g. Beta 58 A) since with that mic is pretty easy to catch a feedback from stage monitors when using long reverb on on-the vocals.
Switch is a pleasant feature (not click-less however)

Versatile mic
Anonymous 29.12.2015
Very decent standard mic which can endure allot of shocks. A good point is the switch, when feedback comes in the game the powerbutton comes in extremely handy to safe your ears from some frequencies.

Standard

This mic is a standard, as a first mic I would recommend it. My voice is a bit deep and I find that there are mics that do a better job. Still I have this one as a back up.

SC
SM58S
Strictly Cash. 05.04.2014
What can I say? It's the SM58. I opted for the S model, with the switch, as I like to be able to turn the mic off on occasion. This one has a strong bass response, maybe not the very best if you have a naturally bass voice. I gave some of the ratings 4 stars, as they are definitely good, but there may be better out there. That said, having a SM58 is never a mistake.
