The human voice is complex, with vocals varying so much in tone. Reproducing the character and dynamics of voice convincingly on a synthetic level is challenging to say the least. Quality microphones go a long way in this quest. Shure has been producing iconic microphones for more than 97 years and has firmly established itself as one of the trusted industry favourites. Beyond the studio, we also have podcast and gaming microphones for you to explore.

Frequently Asked Questions About Studio Microphones in Singapore
How do I choose a microphone for vocals?
This is a common question even musicians wonder about, and while there’s no clear cut answer with a one-size-fits-all microphone, there are some factors you can consider to get started:
What type of vocals are you recording — perhaps you’re singing acoustic pop ballads? Or are you rocking out with your band?
What are you trying to pick up? Vocal microphones differ according to the nature of the performance situation. You may use a handheld microphone for live on-stage performing but a headset or lavalier may be more suitable for theatre or presentation where you’ll need mobility or discreet PA.
What environment are you in? Where you’re at plays a big part in the polar pattern of the microphone and what you’ll select. An omnidirectional pattern is perfect for the studio but a directional polar pattern is better for live performance where there are other sound sources.
How do you want to sound? The type of microphone capsule you select will have an impact on tone quality. The dynamic capsule style has a warm, full sound and is suitable for live gigs. Condensers have a brighter, more detailed sound that makes it a great studio microphone favoured by many. The ribbon capsule has a knack for picking up high-frequency detail and can be a reliable overhead solution in the studio.
The best microphone is one that sounds best for your vocals or singing. There are no real rules to it, and we encourage you to experiment with different types of mics to discover what fits you. After all, pop history has unconventional uses of microphones — John Lennon famously recorded all his vocals with a Shure SM57 that’s typically used as an instrument mic. Check out our in-depth guide on what to consider when choosing the right microphone.
