I consider them to be useless for music, because it makes the music

If you are one of those PA operators using outdoor horn type speakers,
you are quite correct. Music will sound fine when shifted. Simply
because the overall performance is so poor.
If you are playing with concert quality PA, then even the cleaners can
tell the difference.
The last time I set one of these up was for some corporate gig when
the organisers decided they needed a lectern at the last minute. The
only place it wouldn't get in the way was in front of a 10kW PA stack.
So it got set up 2 meters (6 feet) in front of the PA!
When talking about 6" from the mic, I could get a good kW or so before
things became unstuck. 'twas more than enough for their speech.
