Excerpt: I bought this product to use in a home karaoke environment. It already comes with TRS jacks on very robust cords. For the price, this is one of the best corded microphones you can buy. The sound quality is excellent and the microphone is very, very resistant to feedback and rejection. Not to mention the fact that there's plenty of cord length. Very versatile piece of equipment.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Summary: The Audio Technica ATR-1300 works great and is very low-cost. I use it with an Elecraft K3, which can shape the audio passband, but the microphone gets good reports with the K3's microphone equalizer set for a flat response. I have it in a boom, which cost more than the microphone. The whole package is at least $100 less than a boom and microphone from a ham-oriented manufacturer.
Pros: build quality is excellent, tone, range,all good, has very good weight and feel. lifetime warranty, i do not think i could find a nicer mic in this price range, would not hesitate to buy another.
Excerpt: I use this microphone on my communication radio transceivers as a ham radio operator. It has excellent fidelity in the voice range, and I can only imagine it does the same for musical instruments. I have to say that Audio Technica got it right with this mic. It is rugged, good looking, in-expensive, and it sounds great.
Summary: I can't tell any sound difference between these microphones and my Shure SM-48's (yeah, I am a budget guy). I am a part-time DJ that gigs at least one night a weekend, and sometimes 2 times a weekend.
Pros: These mics are very well built, metal screen and body. Feel good in your hand and are easily switched on and off with the switch.
Cons: The bad thing is the dumb XLR-1/4" cord that comes with it. This needs to be thrown away and replaced with a quality XLR-XLR cable.
Excerpt: Bought this to replace an old mic that I thought would be the same quality as the prices were about the same. This mic is much better than anticipated. Great response and feel. Will recommend to my other DJ buddies.
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Versatile
