Gearank Recommendation

The GLS Audio ES-58 appeared on our recommended list for Microphones Under $50 from October 2019 until September 2021.

Overview

The GLS Audio ES-58 is based on the popular SM58 vocal microphone.

While it leaves a lot to speculation, several reviews and user tests indicate that their similarities run more than skin deep.

Nevertheless, the ES-58 comes in at a lower price point than the legendary Shure SM58.

The GLS Audio ES-58 is good news for those with budget constraints. While it may not be hot on the heels of the Shure SM58, it has a sound of its own and at this price, it is hard to beat.

Unfortunately this is no longer available in stores but you can see highly rated alternatives in our guide to The Best Cheap Microphones Under $50.
