The Beta 27 has it all!
The Shure Beta 27 is one of the very few large diaphragm condenser microphones build for stage use.
Very few studio-grade microphones have such a high built-quality and can perform well under studio conditions and stage use alike.
When I first put this microphone on, I did not know what to expect. While having it side by side to the AKG C214, I found it super neutral and flat. The AKG seemed almost as a very hyped up microphone compared to the Shure Beta 27. Considering I found the C214 a very flattering sounding microphone already, this came with a surprise!
It is astonishing how smooth and “normal” this mic can sound. I am still debating whether I like to EQ it a little bit in post-production for voice over or if I’d prefer a more boosted microphone. I find myself constantly switching and changing my preferences here. Surely, the Sure is the most natural sounding microphone in its price range that I ever got to test out!
