Michael Woods - NA
This is a very good condenser microphone. It is very directional and picks up voice even from few inches away from the mic with the same power. However, you need a good voice control to use this mic or probably need de-essing. I compared it to Neumann KMS 105 and decided to keep Neumann . This is $300 more expensive than KMS 105 and did not see a noticeable difference to justify that investment. But it all depend on the vocalist too. For one thing this can be used some compatible wireless systems by buying an adapter that cost another $270
