Yet another classic: The Shure 55 SH. Its great appearance is one of the main reasons for its continuous success. If you’re in a post-modern rockability band and you´re particularly certain about authentic, old-timey looks, the 55 SH is your mic- anything else would not be the same. Shure has upgraded this mic with entirely new acoustic components to meet today’s performance standards though.
MP-Rating: This mic has an absolutely unique design. It combines the old-timey looks of the 1950s and 1960s with modern transducer technology. As it features the typical Shure presence rise, it is ideally suited for vocal reproduction. 5 Stars!

What are handheld vocal microphones?
Microphones that you hold in your hands while performing are considered as handheld vocal microphones. These microphones have to fulfil certain criteria. They need to offer high feedback-rejection and most of them feature cardioid, supercardioid or hypercardioid polar patterns. In addition they are required to provide a rugged construction, full bass and crispy highs. Their frequency response is usually tailored, because these microphones are designed for vocal pickup. Models featuring a pronounced proximity effect are frequently used. When choosing a mic, you should also make sure that wind and breath "pop" noise as well as handling noise are sufficiently suppressed.
