from True Comparison to the SM 58Hi there,I really liked this microphone, just in the price alone. I read the review before, and I was pretty convinced that it was close to the 58 - but I was still curious as to how similar. Well, they are definitely not exactly the same. After removing the mic screen - I noticed that mic diaphragm/head was slightly smaller then in the Shure 58. I also noticed that the total mic weight is a little different, which leads me to believe that the casings are not identical. So being that there are some characteristics that are not same - this is obviously not cut from the same production line as the SM 58.Now, all this aside. I tested both microphone in a side by side test. I was very surprised at what I heard. The vocal (tonal) production was almost the same. (effected and un-effected) I also noticed, and I could be wrong - but seems like maybe a volume difference of .02 - .05 db gain on the Pyle mic (I didn't measure this with a meter - just by sound pressure level via the ears!) I am thinking this might be attributed to the age of my SM 58.(it actually is about 12 years old - and still in great condition) However, it is still possible that this mic is naturally a little hotter.My take on all of this, these mic's are reaching far above in performance in comparison to the price. Side by side tests with the Shure SM58 says that this mic, is a close runner for sure.. (hehe) but may not be identical in makeup. I would definitely use this mic as my main microphone and as a replacement to the SM58.All in all, this microphone seems to have very close to the same vocal reproduction as the 58. Very hard to tell the difference, even by a well trained ear.I would definitely consider purchasing more of these for needed vocal mics for the stage!

from No On/Off swich but still a great buyOverall the microphone is well worth the money. HOWEVER, do not order it and expect to get one with the on/off switch as described. Pyle does not make the PDMIC58 microphone with such. In a side by side test with the Shure SM58, you cannot tell the difference. Even without the on/off switch it is a great deal. The basic Shure SM58 does not have an on/off switch either, but it is offered on the SM58S
