Good, but not all-around vocal mic


from maplewood, MN

Comments about Shure SLX2/BETA87C Wireless Handheld Transmitter Microphone:

I have this mic in our install system. The vocal reproduction is good, but tends to be a little harsh on handling brighter vocals (mid range) - even without eq. Just in our case, seems to work a lot better with female vocals, that are darker and softer. On the construction. I don't think they are very durable in that the mic is cased in a somewhat hard plastic, but doesn't seem like it can take many accidental falls. I believe that it is the same casing the the slx 58's have - and after having a 58 drop a few times, the bottom cap where the battery compartment is cracked. This is actually on a carpeted floor, if that matters any. However, the grill over the capsule is nice and rugged, unlike that of the sm58 - it can take a decent beating and not get all dented. Overall, nice mic for the right vocals. This mic should be auditioned first, or could be used as an additional mic for versatility purposes.
