I use primarily for recording vocals. Sounds amazing. My raw vocals now sound every bit as good as any professional studio, both high and low-end, that I've voiced in over the years (and there have been many). I'm kicking myself for waiting this long to upgrade. My **only** gripe is the lack of an indicator/light to show it is receiving phantom power (sometimes I move to the vocal booth before turning on the mic power). But, the great sound is more than worth that occasional walk back to the audio controller. Terrific mic for the price.
