Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The build quality of this mic is exceptional. I do not expect any problems with this as long as I own it.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
I purchased an Encore100 a few months ago to replace an old SM58 that had seen better days. I was so impressed with the clarity and overall build quality that when I saw the Encore 200 on sale on AMS I bought one without hesitation. It takes the sound quality of the 100 and moves it up a notch. I don't have to EQ the vocals as much anymore and feedback has become less of an issue. Personally, I would not change a thing.

Plug it in, turn on phantom power, done!
How is the tone?
As I said before, clarity is much improved over the SM58's I was using. Also, it seems to have a lot more presence which helps it cut thru the mix better. I like that I really haven't had to adjust EQ to get great sound from it.
Your general opinion of this product.
I am extremely impressed with the Encore series mic's. I am tempted to buy an Encore300 at some point. If you’re on the fence, don't hesitate, buy this mic. You won't regret it.
