Impedance: 290 Ohm

I use it for 2 years, to replace a Shure SM 58 I had tried during an ox and I think the sound is warmer than the SM. In the price range of 200 euros, it is recognized by experts, I trust them ... When recording is nickel, live well, no feedback, no repisse a nice natural compression without having a rack of effect of 2 meters high.

I use it only in concert.


I use it for 10 years.
I also have a Shure SM 58 I prefer. The BETA 58 is a bit more midrange.
This is a good product.
With the experience I remake this choice.
For singers these pickups are a reference.

Not particularly worth the extra price

The Shure Beta 58 is a microphone touted by Shure as the "successor" to the venerable and venerated SM58. I cannot disagree more. It has nothing to do with the fact that the Shure Beta 58 is a bad microphone. In fact, I absolutely disagree. The Shure Beta 58 is a fantastic microphone that does in fact offer more detail than the Shure SM58 like it is intended by Shure. However, this does not always flatter the vocalist.

The Shure Beta 58 is not so much an improvement over the legendary Shure SM58 as much as it is a recoloring, or revoicing. It offers an alternate flavor to the general feel of the SM58, and the result is an increased detail in the high frequencies.

From experience, I've noticed that the Beta 58, if I had to make a sweeping generalization, is better on female voices than it is on male voices. For males, I prefer the old standby, the Shure SM58. I like the midrange presence of the SM58, while the high frequency response of the Beta 58 is far superior. The SM58 does have a tendency to get a bit woofy though, so for fuller, richer voices, the Beta 58 may very be a better choice, male or female. I have a richer (in context of most rock and pop singing) high baritone voice, and personally, the Shure Beta 58 is better on my voice than the SM58.


The microphone isn't really the successor to the SM58 that it's supposed to be. Shure as a company proves this by continuing to make the SM58 at all. The industry standard also has the self-fulfilling quality of it being the industry standard, meaning that more people know how to work it. More people understand it. And more people know how to make the most of the SM58 than the Beta 58.

For this, I say that unless you have tried it yourself, stick with the SM58. You won't be disappointed.

bof ...

I dropped the microphone in the middle said, it had never happened.
slightly finer than SM58, more suited to female voices than the SM58, there is still much better for the price, either in or audix beyer.
