  • Ev Pl84s,Rode M2 or Audio-technica ATM-710?

    Greetings to everyone. I am planning on buying a budget condenser mic. I am interested in these three models. I have a good price, and i want to know your experience, and help me choose the best one. I need the mic for live singing with the band, which has a drummer. Tell me, which one of the three would be the best, according to your experience? Thanks.

    Just curious: how did you come to the conclusion that you specifically needed a hand-held condensor mic? Is there something you're not getting out of whatever mic you're using now? What mic are you using now?

        Well, you'd probably need to try them out with your specific voice, it that is your motivation. Or just save up a little more and get the mic you already tried out and think sounds better.

            The B-87 is a better mic than the others you mentioned, so I would recommend comparing the B-87 to your alternate choices to see if you get close enough. You may find that you need to up your budget to meet your goals.

                  You might look at the Shure SM87. I prefer them over the Beta 87 for most things.

                    I've used the Rode M2, Audio Technica ATM710, Audio Technica AE5400 and Shure Beta 87a. I liked the Rode the least. I liked the Shure Beta87a but found myself using the Audio Technica ATM710 the most. I think the ATM710 is a bit of a sleeper mic and am surprised we don't hear about this mic more!
                    There verdict is not in on the AE5400 at the moment. It is definitely a nice mic but the Telefunken M80 and Audio Technica ATM710 are my go to's for vocals (Sennheiser e945 and e838 not far behind).
