Difference between shure SM57 and shure SM58

The Shure SM58 is the same microphone as the SM57, Except the SM58 has a different grill and some extra padding that means the SM58 is better suited for vocals.

Both microphones have a heart shaped cardioidpolar pattern. This means they are the most sensitive in front (on axis) and the least sensitive from behind (null point).
