If you have no idea where to get started and what type of microphone you need let me explain a few things. For speaking and conferences, you don’t need a live vocal microphone, however, if you are a rapper or a singer you do need a vocal one so now that we got that out of our way let’s take a look at some of the top-rated vocal mics.
Low Budget Under $100
If you are just starting out you don’t want to spend too much money and there’s definitely no need for that as there are some very decent models at this price level. Take the Sure SM58 Dynamic for example, which has been reviewed by 6000+ people. That many people can’t be wrong can they? With a frequency ranging from 50Hz to 15kHz and 300 Ohms make it suitable for nearly every occasion. Many people have said that it’s extremely durable so that’s another advantage. Although there are hardly any complains do make sure you buy one from a trusted dealer as there are a lot of counterfeit models on the market that come with their own problems.
Let’s Raise Our Budget
For the ones that are prepared to spend a little more, we have the Sennheiser E935 available for you. As you should expect the frequency range is wider going from 40hz to 18kHz and 350 Ohms, and a Cardioid polar pattern. If you don’t know what all that means it doesn’t matter, it’s just a higher quality mic with a better sound. The natural sound it produces is a result of the flat frequency response it has built in. Once again it’s rather difficult to find complains about this vocal mic so do your own research.
For the Professionals We Got
The Earthworks SR40V live vocal mic comes with a frequency of 30Hz to 40kHz which is unspoken of an Ohm output that maxes out at 600. Exactly what you expect from a top of the range microphone. With most people saying that this is the best microphone they ever held in their hands you should have no doubt unless the higher price level stops you I’d say go for it.
