Of those two, I think the Shure Beta 98 is the better mic.
However, if you can swing the extra cash (which is substantial), I think you will be happier with the DPA 4099S instead. It's a much clearer sounding mic. And the clip is designed better, i.e. more sure.
I use Shure Beta 98 and DPA 4099, both wireless. Shure works, allways! No mater what sound system, monitor and sound engineer. PDA is a better microphone, but requires more from the sound engineer. I changed to a 4099 CORE Mic, Extreme SPL and it works better than the standard 4099/4099s
Thanks so much for the replies - sorry I'm late responding but for some reason I didn't receive any notifications when you replied. I have the notification box checked in my settings so not sure what's up there.
