Blue Microphones – Yeti Sample

Microphones comparison, reviews

We love reviewing and comparing products here at Housetop Media. It's one of our favorite things to do. We don't like marketing hype and we don't like assuming a particular product is best just because it's the most popular. One of our favorite ways to review a product is to do a comparison review with whatever other product is our current favorite. By giving ourselves a reference point we can really do a detailed analysis helping us decide if the new product has what it takes to become the new standard.

The Blue Microphones enCORE 100 is part of a new line of live performance microphones by Blue Microphones. Blue Microphones is known for making great sounding studio microphones at a great price. They decided they wanted to expand into the live microphone market and created the enCORE line of mics. When I heard about the enCORE 100 I was interested but skeptical. Their are already a bunch of good sounding handheld microphones, especially at the popular $99 price point. The other competition includes:

  • Audix OM2
  • Sennheiser e835
  • AKG D5
  • Shure SM58

Each of these mics have their own strengths and weaknesses, but no one can argue that the Shure SM58 is considered to be the standard for mics in this category by most. That's why we chose to do a head to head comparison between the long reigning champ the Shure SM58 and the new Blue Microphones enCORE 100.

Check back soon for the review of the Blue enCORE 200. Don't want to spoil the review, but I'll let you know that after trying them I replaced my church's microphones with the enCORE 200.

Pretty good

I'd call it the best camera for that price. I'd go for it.
FYI, Downsides are:
* Limited lens compatibility (no autofocus motor, so many Nikon lenses won't work)
* Autofocus is slow enough to be completely useless in live view mode (try it in a store)
* Video mode isn't up to par with Canon and friends. You get limited resolution, awkward frame rate, horrible audio (11kHz with low quality built-in microphone, and no microphone input, and the kit lens will give you lots of image stabilizer noise).
Stepping up, Canon 550D is an amazing camera (albeit without the pivot LCD)
