Pefect mix of style & performance

By Chris Carter

from Waldorf, MD

Comments about Shure Super 55 Dynamic Microphone:

I was truly impressed when the functionality of this device matched if not outshined it elegant design. The style speaks for itself. I tend to play blues / oldies so the tone this mic produces is perfect, however I would not advise for use with hard rock or heavy metal as distortion may cause feedback.

AWESOME MIC

By Jenni

from Pevely, MO

Comments about Shure Super 55 Dynamic Microphone:

i bought this mic for my husbands birthday present. this mic is just plain awesome, upgraded from a Sure SM 58, this mic has the best clarity, you can hear every word and note as clear as a bell, didn't realize how muddy every other mic sounded until this one!! not to mention the look is HOT! one trip to Sun Studios and he knew this is the one he wanted just for the look, we thought it was a little pricey at first but the sound quality is so good the price is worth every penny. he plays classic rock, country , alternative and it works great for all, no feed back! buy it , you'll love it!

Great, unique mic!!!

By Tony Gartman

from Clearwater, Florida

Comments about Shure Super 55 Dynamic Microphone:

i bought this mic about a week ago from GC Clearwater and I have to say that I am truly impressed! I have used SM 58's forever and I wanted to go a different direction. I wanted to break out of the box. Guitar players have so many options to look different.. What do vocalists have?????? The Super 55! As good or better than the Beta series! If you want to be different and still have great quality. Get this mic!!!

Worth It!

By Victor Mendoza -

from Laredo, Texas

Comments about Shure Super 55 Dynamic Microphone:

I wasn't sure about buying this mic at first, because I always wanted the popular Shure 58. I would switch form the Shure 57 and Audix 05 for my gigs, and both mics work well, but the look of the Shure 55 is what sold me. Sure enough the sound is attractive as it's appearance, and I have received many compliments about both. If you care about the presentation of the band, GET IT! The sound quality is outstanding as well, you won't regret it!

Classic look, Crystal Clear sound

By Matthew Sampson

from Fredericksburg, VA

Comments about Shure Super 55 Dynamic Microphone:

So it looks great, but does it sound great? More importantly, is the sound worth the price? Yes and Yes. For a dynamic microphone, this microphone exhibits unusual clarity and shine. And although not too many passive dynamic microphones cost this much, this microphone is worth it, both for it's durability and sound. Now the downside is that it cannot be used for anything but vocals, due to it's tuned frequency response. For a microphone this good looking, I doubt you'd want this thing down by your amp cabinet, but still, for this price, it's a one-trick pony. If live, studio, or broadcast vocal sound that can kill, and an attractive package is your need, then get this microphone.

Not just another beautiful face

By adam fisher

from Irvine, California

Comments about Shure Super 55 Dynamic Microphone:

I bought the special edition Black and red version of this mic and never got to use it until recently. No one really needs to tell you how great it looks with its durable and rugged black metal frame and Powerful red foam to compliment the color scheme. I can say comfortably that i payed for the quality of sound in this mic and the look was just a nice sales tactic. i don't think nice mics have on off switches but that would have been nice but that's like my only complaint.

Comments about Shure Super 55 Dynamic Microphone:

It has very good rear rejection. But not as good as the 5575LE. But, it sounds great right ought of the box. In fact, you can just about level your EQ to flat and you won't add or take away much of the frequency. This mic has good gain before feedback. It sounds great playing my harmonica in front of it. And even with high frequencies of the harmonica it resists feedback very well. It has a really tight dynamic range. In my opinion, the Beta 57 sounds just as good. So, if you have a Sultry Lady singing Sexy music, she needs one of these to complete the picture. Hey, we all know, perception is a big deal on the stage. But, even still, it's a great buy for the sound and quality. It's hyper cardioid, so you have to stay on axis or only ever so slightly off side to keep down the plosives. But, that's just good mic technique and everyone knows this. Proximity effect is noticeable, but we also know how to use that to our advantage as well.

        Comments about Shure Super 55 Dynamic Microphone:

        I've had a Shure 55 type 2 for years which is an excellent mic. I now have a Super 55 and have made some comparisons. The Super 55 provides better feedback rejection, lower distortion, considerably more gain, and a slightly higher high frequency extension. It's an excellent mic.

          Comments about Shure Super 55 Dynamic Microphone:

          This mic essentially has the same super-cardiod capsule as the Shure Beta 58a. This allows the mic to rejects feedback and achieve far higher gain before feedback than the Shure 55 II. The mic has a classic vocal mic boost and produces a great vocal sound.

          The mic case work is extremely well finished and the mic is very heavy and only appropriate for stand use. If you want a classic mic look coupled with a very high quality capsule, this is likely your best option.

            The SHURE Super 55 is a great microphone, with the vintage look and sound that is great, just seems vocals are better especially using the CLOUD LIFTER with this mic.

              Comments about Shure Super 55 Dynamic Microphone:

              Would be 5 stars, but I haven't put this on stage yet. I'm sure it will merit the 5th star, but until I use it on a gig.... So, I had my good ole sm58 on one stand and the super 55 on another - controls set flat. The 55 is the clear winner. Clarity is terrific - better high end than the 58, and as I pulled the vocals into a softer tone, the 55 kept them clear - 58 was muffled and lost. Price is expected for such quality.
