Did A/B comparison with this mic as soon as I received it with my EV n/d 727. Crisper, better low end & clearer. Using the Blue Encore 200 was like taking a filter off the EV mic. Love it. I've become so used to it I'm starting to use it in home recording. Also, you can't go wrong with the copper look on top!. A+++

I first got the encore 200 after I was disappointed in the low output of my encore 100. I loved the clarity and detail of the 100 but all the gain required to get an adequate signal made it conducive to picking up everything else on stage and consequently caused feedback. Since the clarity and detail were so nice for the money I bought a encore 200 because in the ad, the company implied that phantom power would fix the output issue of the encore 100. Unfortunately, even after using the standard 48v phantom power on my Soundcraft mixer to my Bose speakers, the signal of the 200 was also surprisingly weak and I actually believe I heard less detail and clarity with the encore 200. The blues are extremely pretty mics with some impressive attributes. However, considering the availability of countless less problematic options for similarly and even lower priced mics, my advice is to pass these pretty mics by. They may be great for very quiet, low noise situations, but if you are playing clubs and noisy restaurants, forget it. All that glitters is not gold. I went back to my Sennheiser e835s.

    Comments about BLUE enCORE 200 Dynamic Live Vocal Microphone:

    I've always liked Blue's products. I wanted to get a mic that would more faithfully capture our vocalist. The Encore 200 is accurate, warm, and full. I also use it for recording through a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2. Smooth, round, warm. I highly recommend it. Plus, it looks cool. Thanks for another great product Blue!

    Comments about BLUE enCORE 200 Dynamic Live Vocal Microphone:

    I bought this on clearance. When I compared this mic to my go to (OM5 for 10+ yrs) the way it made my voice sound was so sweet that everyone in rehearsal was surprised. I Would definitely buy another one. The lack of proximity effect bass boost is perfect for male voices and this mic didn't disappoint in that category. Also the amount of headroom made feedback no issue at all.

      As soon as I get this mic, i wanted to test it.
      I plugged Beta 58 and encore 200 into 2 separate channels and recorded them at the same time.
      I couldn't believe my ears. BLUE has more open (wider) sound then BETA. Flat response on all frequencies.
      Closer to condenser then to dynamic mic. I like it.

          Comments about BLUE enCORE 200 Dynamic Live Vocal Microphone:

          I bought two of these most gorgeous microphones! They smoke any live performance microphone out there, once you get used to how these mics work. If you back away, you can converse with your band members, and nothing comes through the speakers, until you get around two, or three inches away. They reject any stage sound that most microphones pick up, and the clarity and power these put out, is at least double that of the very most popular microphone that we all know to be the standard! I use mine for studio and live vocals, with the phantom 48 volts, (which all boards have today), and needless to say, my vocals are the most prominent, dominating factor in our all original hard rock group! Finally I have a mic that will cut through everything like butter, and our fans know all the lyrics and sing with us! The only thing that you might not like about this gorgeous machine, is that it is in fact so well made, and finished, that you might be afraid to scratch it or get a smudge on it! It is very very Rico Suave!!!!

            I bought 2 of these mics one was missing from my package and I had to wait for Musicians Friend to send me another then one blew up at a concert and Musicians Friend told me I had to deal with the company that made it. I called Blue Microphone spoke to a live person who took all of my info to give to the repair dept who never called or emailed me back. Really unhappy with this product and this company and Musicians Friend for not standing behind this product.

              I purchased 2 Blue Encore200 mics to replace 2 Shure 58's that were stolen after a show. These were offered by MF as a 2 for the price of 1 promo and I was in a bind and for the price I thought why not. I'm glad I did. These mics sound better than the Shure 58! Great flat response! I was so impressed I also purchased 2 Blue Encore 300's again at the 2 for 1 promo price to replace an EV condenser that was also taken the same night. The Blue condensers blow the EV away! My conclusion, BUY these mics!

                Comments about BLUE enCORE 200 Dynamic Live Vocal Microphone:

                I bought these at the beginning of the BOGO special and boy is this a steal. This mic is head and shoulders above the SM58 and I prefer it over the Beta 58 as well. Never have I owned such an honest mic. At first I wasn't sure if I liked it or not because I noticed that I sounded pretty terrible, but after hearing other people use it on our stage, I realized that the microphone literally just DOES NOT color your sound. And why should it? That's what preamps and EQ are for. What you get from the microphone itself is a brutally honest representation of the voice or instrument you are micing. You also get the added bonus of being the only kids on the block with a microphone that looks as snazzy as these!

                Bear in mind that these mics, although dynamic, require phantom power. This allows for ultra low impedance for long cable runs if necessary, amongst other things. There's a nice little indicator on the handle that lets you know if the mic is receiving phantom power. Feels great in the hands, and the mic clips are sturdy and firmly grip the microphone without having to force it into the clip. The textures between the mic itself and the clip are made so they come in and out easily, but don't slip (even when you're drunk and trip over the cord and pull the whole thing down stand and all). Which btw, the grills on these things are also very strong. Not even a dent or a scratch!

                I highly recommend taking advantage of this BOGO sale while it lasts.

                This is a great mic.....limited noise at higher volume. I plugged this into my Tascam 32sd and used it to record acoustic guitar. A very nice recording without the low lows and Twinkie high sounds. Very true to what you'd want your acoustic guitar to sound like.
