Summary: This microphone works very well. Although I am not by any means a sound expert I use it for my web show on youtube. Search kylefirTV on u tube to listen to the audio. I use it with a zoom 4hn recorder.
Summary: Great mike for the price. The only drawbacks: the power module is very large and can not be unplugged, so if you want to hide the wire inside a person's clothes, you have to put this pack-of- playing-cards sized module down their shirt. Plus, the XLR connector is embedded inside this pack, so you can not plug the mike directly into a mixer or camera - you have to use an additional XLR cable.
Summary: This mike is a great omnidirectional mike. I have used it in TV studios and ENG for many years. The newer design uses a AA battery, which is much better than the older design which used an N battery. The battery life is almost forever. This AT803B will easily last 20 years unless it gets "lost".
Pros: Durable, Lightweight, Long Lasting, Quiet, Simple Use, Very clean sound
Summary: I use it for recording speakers at a local yeshiva. It works great, excellent sound. Just be careful about clothing sounds. I would have liked a little less mass on the clip on amplifier and simpler lighter plugs (XLR is very heavy). The box is also all metal and heavy. It would be nice to have a volume control. The control that is there (which has a flat versus logrithmic response) does not seem to make any difference.
