$69 mic that sounds better than a $100 mic

So I needed another dynamic vocal mic with good feedback rejection and didn't want to drop $100 on one. So for a sale price of $39.99 I gave the EV Cobalt Co9 a try. I am blown away. It sounds better than my Blue encore 100, which to me sounds better than the industry standard vocal mic. The Ev sounds better than my Heil PR20 which to me sounds better than the Blue encore 100. The EV does have some handling noise, but my mic never leaves the stand, so for me it's a winner! Well worth $69. Even better that I got it on sale! Nice little padded carry case and a pretty good mic clip. Again, better than what comes with the industry standard $100 mic.

Out of interest, what are you referring to as the industry standard mic? I would have thought a shure sm58, but they do come with a clip and padded bag/case.

I haven't given the cobalt a listen, but I own a couple EV ND767 Dynamic mics. They are clean and articulate and are really nice for vocals.
EV makes some nice products.

To be released, yes the SM58. Its mic clips are hard as a rock and don't fit well and the bag isn't padded. The zippered pouch the Co9 comes with is heavily padded. For the record I do love Shure's mic clips that come with their wireless mics. Bushman, agreed. EV is good stuff.

The SM57/58 doesn't need a padded bag because they're more sturdy than a tank.

Word.

Our youth's SM58s have been dropped from heights varying from 4 feet to 3 stories...onto stone. And they work fine. :P
