Summary: Great value for money. I use it with Zoom H1 recorder. To get proper sound I set input levels to 90 at least. There is a noticable noise/hiss but I can handle it at post and get usable high quality sound and it's okay for me at this price. I'm using it in independent filmmaking, so for other uses (conference, presentation etc) its more than good for the price.
Summary: I must say that this item is not bad at all. I use it for my video recordings and I am happy with it. With a simple iPhone microphone adapter, I can connect it to my iPhone and use it for my external audio device for my recordings. It is not the best out there in the market but for those who want a good sound, this is not a bad buy.
Good mic at cheap price. Check ON/OFF switch after use. Sacrificial lapel.

Summary: This is not the greatest lapel microphone, but at the price it does a fine job. I now have two of these. Very long cable. Good sound. Uses hearing aid battery (ALWAYS check you switched off after use). Gripes: - The foam wind muff slips off easily (but common on lapel mics) - I've come to dislike the long cable, but I have upgraded my audio setup which now doesn't require this long unshielded cable.
Summary: I was looking for a low priced lavalier mircrophone, to experiment with some interviews and presentation. This mic is very good priced, and the quality is just amazing !! I give this mic 4 out of 5 stars, just because this microphone maybe can't keep up with his more expensive brothers, but works just incredible for his price !!!
I would recommend this product for semi-professional movie maker.

Summary: I purchased this product to film videos with my camcorder as well as make YouTube videos. I like the weight of the product. The microphone clip is made of steel as well as the battery compartment. The sound quality is very good...better than a traditional webcam integrated microphone. The only drawback is the sound playback. I had to take the wav file and raise the decibels in Audacity. Not a big deal...just a minor inconvenience. The price and quality is hard to beat.
Summary: This is a great mic for anybody needing one for up close shots or doing interviews. It has a long enough cable that you won't need an XLR Cable. Plus the sound quality is prefect. All in all an excellent mic at a very affordable price. A must have for any filmmaker.
Summary: I absolutely love this product. I'm using it to do some filming of interviews both indoors and outdoors. Even with cars driving by, wind, dogs barking, etc., I am able to hear the interviewee or actor excellently. The chord is long enough that I can be far away with my camera and tripod, and connect it to my mp3 recorder (works both on the BOSS and the Sony recorders). I have absolutely no complaints or issues or further requests of the product.
