It doesn't only have the looks but it also works more than you expect it to! Instead of writing paragraph after paragraph, all I'm gonna say is LISTEN! http://www.reverbnation.com/narcissusangel/song/20161027-price-live-narcissus-ngel This was recorded live , last night. It sounds as if I am in the studio! 100% Noise Free!
I Know Blue's quality from their condenser Microphones, after much research I decided this would be my new stage mic. I have to say I am VERY impressed! I use this mic for vocals, and the detail is amazing, and how quiet it keeps the atmosphere around me is almost mind blowing! Feedback is almost non existent with this mic, unless you are facing the mic to the source within a few feet. Pretty much any sound source outside of a 3 foot radius around this mic(guessed estimation) will not be picked up, which in a dynamic microphones case is fantastic! Also this mic looks phenomenal to top everything off! This mic is really an awesome choice for a performing vocalist, I HIGHLY recommend it!
I play the bass and sing lead vocals in a church youth group band. our stage is not very wide, we have the drums in the center of the stage, two electric guitars, an acoustic guitar and one other vocalist. I have used the Shure sm58 for about 7 years and recently was getting feedback problems and the bass would bleed into the mic a lot. I purchased the Blue enCore 200 and the difference it has made has been phenomenal! I'll be honest, if you give it to much gain, it will feedback but the gain over the sm58 is better. I never really liked the way my voice sounded when I would sing but this mic gives the voice a very natural sound without adding too much mid level boom. It gives your voice a nice, studio like sound. I love it. its rejection to all the instruments bleed in is great. I am very happy with this purchase. I went ahead and bought the Blue enCore 100 for our back up vocalist and her voice sounded so great! Blue has made a great product line with these mics. the bring the studio sound quality to the stage!
We purchased 4 of these for our small church and we love them. I have a Shure Beta 87A that I love. I was surprised to find that this mic, the Blue enCORE 200 is very similar in quality, sound, and feel. My likes: sound quality is great; solid feel to it; unique look; picks up from a quite a distance. My dislikes: can feed back easily, but proper placement of speakers/monitors can stop that.
I was working with a singer this weekend whose voice had a hard time cutting through the mix at a smaller venue with all kinds of acoustic challenges. Tried many different ways to boost his vocal up, but it just wasn't cutting it. Luckily I was able to get him to put his lucky mic away and give this a try. I had to talk it up a bit, but actually, it was the first time I was giving it a try, which did nothing but put the pressure on. End result? Clean- His voice cut right through without any adjustments, and he sounded silky. I had no idea this mic would work so well. The whole active dynamic thing made me nervous- And at the end of the night, I was happy, and he was happy and ready to permanently replace his lucky mic.
My singer recently purchased this mic on a whim. First off it feels really great in your hand, built very sturdy. However - this mic live in a club sounded very bad. Too mid range peaky sounding and at times shrill. No presence. Feedback was a huge problem. I sing backups and my mic (was provided by club) sounded better and fuller. Also if you are a screamer, stay away from this one. Phantom power feature just adds gain and a cool light. with phantom on we had to disengage low cut filter @ FOH board. not sure why but it helped???? weird huh? vids on our site of this mic performing badly (not the band, the mic HA!)
I went out on a limb and bought this mic based on positive reviews from others. This mic is very well built -- higher quality than other similar value mics. The sound is very true and consistent across the low and high range. It does not seem to add any coloration to one's voice. Great clariy and dynamic. Feedback was almost non existent. Microphone is extremely quiet and does not cause "pops" even when singing close to the mic. It does not feel "strained" when volume is turned up. Handling is top notch, maybe a bit heavy for some but I like the feel. I do not give it five stars due to the fact that I have not tried all the MICS out there but it beats all the Shures, EV's, Seinheisers that I have tried. For the price, it's the best mic overall that I have come across. Makes me want to get their condenser mics for recording.
I have been recording for 20 years now and have a project studio. I have just about every type of mic available. When I saw this Blue encore 200 I had to try it. I'll go a bit out on limb here but for a vocal mic at this price you cannot afford not to have one. The best sounding hand held I have ever used. Even amatuers will sound pro. A good channel strip is key to shaping the sound-but at least the underlying quality is there to start with
I had to wait several weeks to get this , but well worth the wait. Very clean studio like sound, excellent.
