Comments: Having used the SM58 (switched and non-switched versions) for quite a number of years, I recommend it to anyone looking for a great vocal mic on a budget, and often times, when not on a budget. While slightly heavy on the low end, the SM58 sounds great--full, rich vocal reproduction. I've yet to find another mic close to this price point that I like as well.

Is this a wireless product?

This SM58 is not wireless... However, we have a number of shure handheld wireless systems that do have the SM58 capsule on them.
