The Apex381 is a low impedance, dynamic microphone with exceptionally high sensitivity and linear response. It features a high energy, rare-earth neodymium magnet, double dome-diaphragm and an aluminum alloy voice coil designed to provide incredibly high output. Its tight cardioid pattern maximizes gain before feedback for outstanding live performance.

An internal double shockmount system significantly reduces handling & extraneous noise while a unique filter minimizes breath noise and popping caused by some consonants. The extremely rugged, heat-treated metal grille is highly shock resistant for better element protection and performance and comes with XLR to XLR mic cable and mic stand clip. New "leather-feel" finish makes for more positive grip during enthusiastic live performances.

Just bought this mic at L&M for 99$ and comes with a 25ft XLR cable!!!! You won?t believe me when I tell that this mic out performs my SM58. I set up my PA, used the same input, same levels, same cable and just switched the mic?s out to compare....the Apex wins.....however, it could be my 58 is about 5yrs old but hey......bang for your buck.... buy this mic. You won?t be disappointed!

Like all Apex products, this is an excellent alternative to the big brands, at nearly half the price. Very good quality. I challenge anyone to find a difference in the sound between this mic and the SM-58!

I have a Behringer Wireless Dual ULM202USB microphone which picks up a lot of feedback from the speakers and causes distortion plus didn't give the promised 30 hours of battery life. So I bought this Apex 381 mainly because the Shure58 brand new was too expensive (like $150 + $25 with a XLR cable). L&M Mississauga gave me a good deal on a used Apex 381 (for $40 with a free XLR cable and microphone clip too). Just too bad that they did not have a used SM58. Apex 381 provides so-so performance . Thankfully no feedback but have to literally put your lips to the microphone.to even be heard. You won't even be heard even at a one inch distance. It only delivers limited vocal power. I was a bit disappointed. For my money I would buy a SM58 but the wireless type. I've used the SM58 wireless at my karaoke group and it is an awesome microphone. The downside is that the SM58 wireless microphone starts at $700 + including tax.........Ouch

I purchased two of these to add to my karaoke setup. I must say that using these Apex 381's alongside the Shure SM58's I cannot hear much of a difference (even if most reviews seem to favour the SM58). Certainly a great little mic for a karaoke setup, and for a good price.

I got this mic brand new from L&M. The customer service was exceptional. This was the best cheapest mic at their store. Forget about Recording Narration with this mic. If you want to use it for small family gatherings, then this product is for you. If you host bigger parties, then I suggest spend a little more and get a better mic.
