SM31FH and SM35 - Do they use the same mic element?

FAQ #4560 Updated December 12, 2014


I would like to know if there is a difference in mic capsule between the SM31FH and the SM35. I need a mic for vocals.


Yes, there is a difference.   Here are the primary differences:

SM35 has 9 dB less output level - not critical for singing because the mic is close to the mouth.

SM35 has a tighter polar pattern.  This means less feedback when use for live music.

SM35 has a better bass response and a better high end response.  It has better fidelity for music.

Bottom line:  SM35 should sound better for vocals.
