Let's just say this: the Blue enCORE 100i is the first microphone I’ve ever regularly chosen OVER the SM57, in ‘SM57’ typical applications, namely, snare drum top and electric guitar cab."
I was really excited about this microphone before I picked it up and now I'm even more excited since it's been on the road with me. The enCORE 300 is excellently suited for loud female vocals and gives a warmth while still cutting through the mix. "
I own a number of mics, but this one went to the top of my list for the best all-around application, especially stage vocals."
When I saw this Blue encore 200 I had to try it. I'll go a bit out on limb here but for a vocal mic at this price you cannot afford not to have one. The best sounding hand held I have ever used. Even amateurs will sound pro."
We own both the Shure SM58 and now the Blue enCORE 100 and I can tell you I haven’t touched the SM58 since purchasing the enCORE!!!"
This isn't a subtle difference from an SM58. It clearly is a superior mic in look and sound."
I really love this microphone. I am amazed at how naturally this mic reproduces vocal sound with flat EQ out of the box."
The Blue enCORE 200 was by far one of my best purchases. The tight EQ pattern has a stellar quality for male vocals and still portrays female vocals well. I definitely plan on picking up a few more of these to have in the mic locker."
I have always wanted to try this mic, and when I did, it was unbelievable."
I recommend this mic for anyone who wants to mic guitar cabinets."
The 300 is crystal clear and noise free no matter how hard I push it with high gain and volume settings. I love it."
I am completely blown away by the sound of these mics. Much cleaner, crisper and more present in the mix than the Shures I am so familiar with."
I was hugely impressed with the dexterity of the 100's vocal warmth and definition…"
What a microphone. Had no experience with Blue but kept reading good things. Replaced an SM58 with the Blue and was beyond pleased. No feedback, tremendous clarity and warmth. I have to crank my 58 to get half the overall sound that the 200 produces at low levels and almost invariably the feedback would kick in."
