This mic has been around forever for a reason. It is an extremely versatile microphone that can be applied in many roles. A big part of the versatility is a relatively high output level, large diaphragm and the really well engineered variable high pass filter ring.
The high pass filter selector takes this from a very powerful bottom end response for capturing bass cabinets and toms to being able to thin it out to use for things like an overhead mic for drums or communications grade speech recording.
For voicover or singing work you will need to manage plosives with pop filters or application of compressors. It has a great articulate quality for voice with the emphasis on the upper mid-range frequency response. Once managed it performs very well across many types of voices. I have a lot of low frequency energy in my voice and run these at the mid-point selection of the high pass filter selector. Works great.
The cardioid pattern has a nice forgiving sweet spot to it allowing for some freedom of movement with a predictable and manageable proximity effect. With practice you can get some great dynamic speech results as well as vocal effects while singing.
If you are strictly doing voiceover work and don't have appropriate outboard processing gear or experience with processing, other mic designs like the EV RE series, the Rode or the Heil PR40 may make it easier for you, but this microphone has broader applications.
