MIC WARS! The Shure SM58 vs the Behringer B2 Pro!

The Shure SM58 is a legendary dynamic microphone. It is an XLR microphone and does NOT require phantom. It has a frequency response of 50Hz-15KHz 

The Behringer B-2 Pro is a large diaphragm condenser microphone with a frequency response of 20Hz-20KHz. It is an XLR microphone, and requires phantom power.
