Summary: Oh it's a microphone!!I thought it was a vibrator and a good deal at that. After receiving it I realized nothing was coming out only going in so I assume that it was an an internal vibrator and pluged the large part into the wall outlet, once I found one large enough to accomadate something of this size. I then pluged the small end into myself but still had the same result. These devices are a good item for the cost just be sure you know what the device is intended for.
Summary: The ATR-20 microphone provides good quality, clear and punchy ham radio audio. It should require no equalization, and sounds good right out of the box. SSB uses very little speech frequency audio bandwidth, about 2600 Hz, so virtually any good quality microphone will sound good on pretty much any transceiver. Practically any microphone will be flat and linear across this frequency range. This is a good, high-quality, inexpensive, well-built microphone for the task.
Summary: I'm in a band. I had a show and about two or three weeks before it, my original mic busted, so this really came in and did the job in a pinch, quick and cheap, works perfectly. I've got no issues with this mic whatsoever to be honest. you won't be disappointed.
Summary: Bought it to record song ideas on my TASCAM hand held recorder that requires a small jack. Also works as a microphone for my computer for Skype and such. For these purposes it was a good investment for the price. It does this well.
Summary: I've used these mics for back-up at work. They also work for a guest mic, as well. I paid less than $10 for this mic, so I won't get too upset if a guest drops it, etc. Plus, the mic is fairly stout for the price. The sound is better than the price paid. Bid with confidence!

Summary: We needed an extra microphone for our Karaoke machine. This mic is better than the one that came with the machine. It has a nice long cord that lets you sit back away from the TV/karaoke machine; and it picks up your voice really well. No buzzing or humming either. We are very pleased with this product.
