10 Live Vocal Microphones Under £100

Whether you're running a large professional PA system, a medium set up or a small karaoke night, there's a mic for you in our guide to budget vocal microphones.

Pro level

Shure SM58 Dynamic Cardioid Vocal Microphone

- You can't have a discussion about vocal mics without this legendary model. Considered the industry-standard for live performance, the SM58 is award-winning and has proved its worth over almost half a century.

Sennheiser e845 Lead Vocal Mic

- A sturdy mic that stands up to the SM58, the e845 produces a crystal clear sound and is perfect for baritone singers. Available with a switch.

AKG D5 Dynamic Lead Vocal Mic

- The D5 features AKG's patented Laminated Varimotion diaphragm, the first microphone of its kind to vary thickness across its diameter. This allows for the D5 to be fine-tuned without using extra tuning resonators.

Intermediate level

Lewitt MTP440DM Professional Cardioid Dynamic Mic

- Versatile and bright, the MTP440DM can be used for miking percussion and acoustic instruments just as well as vocal performances. Isolation of sound eliminates unwanted background noise and reflections.

Rode M1 Dynamic Microphone

- With clarity and a smooth character, the M1 performs well for both male and female vocals in any style of live performance. This solid, die-cast mic feels top-range with perfect balance and all-satin black look.

Audix OM2 Dynamic Vocal/Instrument Mic

- The multi-purpose OM2 has a VLM (Very Low Mass) diaphragm, giving it an exceptional voice response. This mic will fare just as well on small to mid-sized PA systems as well as larger systems.

Entry level

Peavey PVi II Microphone

- If you're looking for a karaoke mic or something to use when messing around with your small PA system at home, the PVi II is one of the best value mics you could want. The PVi is often compared to the Shure SM58, and is a steal at around a third of the price.

Audix F50 Dynamic Vocal Microphone

- This feedback-resistant mic can handles high SPLs and has a low impedance. It's ideal for use with small PA systems found in school and churches, a real contender in the entry-level bracket.

Behringer XM8500 Ultravoice Dynamic Mic

- A two-stage pop filter helps to keep vocal 'pop' and breathy noises to a minimum, whilst maximising vocal projection. The XM8500 is sturdy enough to take on the road, an excellent mic for live vocals night after night.

Dynamic Vocal Microphone by Gear4music

- The frequency range and sensitivity of the Dynamic Vocal Mic by Gear4music mean it's perfectly suited to vocals, at a price ideal for absolute beginners looking for a starting point.
