Performance Dynamic Vocal Microphone with Clip
This professional grade vocal microphone is built for the road and is ideal for all vocal and speech performances. Handling noise is absorbed by the body of the mic, so it is not reproduced by the sound system. This is a great feature for novice performers and presenters who grip the mic like a security blanket. No on/off switch also means performers cannot accidentally turn the mic off.
Confidence is maximized by low feedback, thanks to the unidirectional cardioid pickup pattern. The cardioid mic also minimizes bleed from other instruments to keep your stage mix tight and articulate. While the best sound from a mic comes from getting as close as possible, it can lead to explosive booms that come from hard consonant like "P" and "T". The internal pop filter reduces this forced air by dispersing the flow, so you are not blowing directly into the diaphragm. Includes a heavy-duty mic clip and handsome carry bag.
Nothing scream "Chinese Microphone" like an on/off switch. True professional mics do not give this option to the performer because he will always accidentally switch it off at the worst time then look around to blame the sound system. This $30 mic is a great value for an all-metal, road-ready performer with low noise and handling. Step up to the mic and be heard Loud & Clear!

Questions and Answers
There is no way the dynamic vocal mic goes down to 20 Hz unless it is some wakky unusual mic. I would not trust Dave Audio's seemingly outlandish claim, even though he apparently is "Monoprice Staff", unless he backs up his claim with a certified graph from a calibration lab. 20 Hz is extremely rare for inexpensive dynamic mics. "Vocal" mics of any kind (condensers included) rarely go below about 50 Hz -- and this is intentional. Generally, you do *NOT* want a vocal mic that goes all the way down to 20 Hz, or else you will have a lot of problems (breath pops, handling noise, stage rumble, etc.). Additionally, dynamic vocal mics are normally used with a high-pass filter around the ballpark of 120 Hz due to proximity effect. Hope this helps.

PROS: Great price, good sound, doesn't make noise when you handle it. I would certainly recommend it to anyone needing a mic!
PROS: Very good response for the money, would put it up against the SM58
CONS: None so far

PROS: Doesn't need as much gain as an SM-58 for good levels. It also seems to reject feedback from monitors a little better than the 58. The mic clip is practically identical to a 58 except it doesn't say 'Shure' on it.
CONS: (And this may be subjective CON if comparing with the 58) It seems to be a little more airy and not as full/warm as a 58. If your using this for vocals, this could be a good thing depending on the voice.
All said, I think it's a great mic and I'm buying a second.
That said there is nothing about the sound coming through this mike that sounds "wrong." It's not tinny or mushy and sounds like what is being played into it. It is plenty good enough to please my untrained ears.
