Produces good sound quality.

Tweedles, Radioshack
11 September 2014
  • Excerpt: I use it with my Windows desktop computer and cassette tape recorder to record myself playing musical instruments. Sound quality acceptable. Pretty sturdy. I like the small size (<3" diameter and <1/2" tall); makes it much less intrusive on the desk than a conventional mike on a stand. Had a bit of trouble getting the battery compartment case closed properly. But once I did that, it worked fine.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact
  • Cons: Battery Compartment Case, No instructions

Small unit, Big performance by Audio-Technica

preacherrick51, Ebay
10 July 2014
  • Summary: I bought this product to use with a digital recorder for recording Church Conferences to keep on record. I set it in the center of the Church Council members and it picks up every person extremely well. It is a small unit with big performance, which is not unusual for Audio-Technica products. Haven't used it long enough to determine battery life though.

Excellent Microphone

Indy Ed, Radioshack
25 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Our priest roams the altar when preaching. This mic captures his voice with remarkable accuracy and clear sound. It doesn't look like a microphone, so it is less intimidating to shy speakers. I don't do "oral history" but, if I did, this mic would be my first choice.
  • Pros: Long lasting battery, Non-standard appearance, Very sensitive
  • Cons: none

Not Recommended

luvmedo, Office Depot
2 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this to record therapy sessions with clients. Not only does it cut out when replaying a recorded session, the construction is so poor that the battery cover will not stay attached and the battery keeps falling out.
  • Pros: Design
  • Cons: Sound Quality, Build Quality

Looks and performs well

DKTB, Staples
14 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Purchased this for use with an Olympus DM-620 Voice Recorder. Could not get it working even after trouble shooting, checking the battery, switch etc. Staples credited my account and ordered a replacement unit that works very well. The DM-620 built in microphones work well but using this conference unit places the microphone in a central position and enables the recorder to be at the operators seat position for easy control.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy to Use, Efficient

I sound like I'm from those Subway commercials

Robert H., Newegg
5 July 2012
  • Summary: Not going to return it because it might be useful for making funny videos or something
  • Pros: Seems to pickup very well
  • Cons: It makes me sound like I'm on one of those funny Subway commercials where everybody has a funny voice. I've tried different applications and microphone ports and nothing changes.

Newegg going downhill?

Dominic F., Newegg
6 June 2011
  • Summary: I just receive the product and oh man.... The cheap packaging (plastic bubble wrap) totally ruined the box and damaged the grill housing. I dont know if this will cause performance issue. Let's hope not. Planning to RMA but for newegg, this should've been avoided from the start. Please reconsider your shipping method.
  • Pros: Nothing.
  • Cons: See other thoughts
