First, let's have a look at the Shure SLX2/SM58 Handheld Transmitter with SM58 Microphone, H5. Here we have another serious heavyweight contender. Meet the legendary Shure SM58 vocal microphone. This beautifully crafted wireless microphone is designed for professional vocal use for events like live performances, sound reinforcement, and studio recordings. For those of you seriously committed to producing next-level karaoke events, this is the mic for you.
The second product we will be examining in this comparison is the Behringer Ultralink ULM100USB Karaoke Mic. This set is the perfect package for those looking to get a complete system for their karaoke parties. It comes with two ULM200M handheld microphones and a ULM200D dual-mode USB receiver, which we love because it means there’s a mic for you, and one for a friend.
We chose it because it is a beast of a mic with clear attention to details. For example, it features a highly effective, built-in spherical filter to minimize wind and breath 'pop' noise. It also uses a unidirectional (cardioid) pickup pattern isolates the main sound source while minimizing unwanted background noise. Frankly, this mic’s tailored vocal response for sound is truly a world standard for singing or speech.
These karaoke mics are great to pick for karaoke lovers as they sound great and have a very good range (up to 400’/120M) leaving you able to freely roam around your home stage. We also love that you won't have to deal with the hassle of frequency matching; the receiver automatically pairs with the transmitter, so setup is as easy as plug-and-play. Behringer also devoted special attention to the ULM202USB's battery design to ensure that battery life is extended as long as possible.
