Summary: Since I was making an unrelated purchase from B&H Photo-Video anyway, I decided to gamble an additional $20 on ordering an ATR1300 to see what the all the ruckus in the reviews was about. I’ve had a chance to play with it a bit and now I’m filing a preliminary review. “Fit and finish” for this Chinese-made microphone seem reasonably good.
Summary: I purchased this microphone on the recommendation of a fellow him for use with my K3. It worked right out of the box with no need for any adjustments to the radio’s equalizer settings. I get great unsolicited reports on my audio. B&H had the best price with shipping.
Summary: this mic would fool the pants off higher end mics,,,,huge. i run it on a 756pro3 and i get beauty results all day long it has good tone,bass,treble,etc. i change it out with my higher end electrovoice mics,and no one tells the diff. for its price...........it truly is amazing. i bought mine at b and h in new york.get one. you wont regret it.
Summary: I bought this mike on the advice of other hams and yes, they were right. I am getting unsolicitied audio compliments from everyone. The best 20 bucks I have ever invested in Ham Radio. The ATR 1300 has superior gain over most of the Heil mics I have owned. I like it so much that I just bought another one. Audio Technica, keep listening.
