JESSE W  I have tried several with great success. Currently, I am using a Shure ksm44 and a Shure sm81-lc. Both are not super expensive and work quite well. I might note that the length and quality of cord from the mic mate to your interface seems to make a difference with latency. I had at first a cheap quality cord without shielding and it had some noise and delay in the headphones. I spent some money and got a really short, high quality unit and it took care of my issues.
Madelon C  Thanks for your helpful info Jesse. A couple more questions: How short is "short" in reference to the length of the interface cord? Does the preamp create any form of amplification or is a separate amplifier necessary to complete the outfit? If so, so you have a recommendation? Appreciated. Madelon
