    I've just weighed a Shure SM58, which is probably the commonest dynamic stage mic there is.

    The mic with nothing attached weighs just over 300 grams.

    In use with cable attached, held at mouth level: The mic plus the connector and the length of cable down to the floor add up to just over 400g.

    In round figures that's around 11oz bare mic and 14.5oz with cable.

    (The mic lead consists of metal Neutrik XLRs and Van Damme starquad cable).

    About the same as an empty beer bottle.
