Summary: I have used the microphone once or twice so from what i can tell so far it works well. I still have yet to use it to record or use it for more extensive use than use playing guitar and singing.
Summary: I wasn't too sure what to expect when it arrived. I plugged it into a small dj system with two yamaha speakers and peavy amp! Boy, was I surprised! Microphones have come a long way for the price! It sounded like a more expensive model! Don't be scared about some of the feedback listed. It works fine as is. You don't need another cord. It was surprisingly heavy for its size and did a GREAT job. The only concern is where the cord attaches to the microphone.
Summary: This microphone is pretty good. I bought it as an interview mic and it does a pretty good job of it. I don't use it for singing or anything and I don't have a lot of experience with that kind of thing. The part that plugs into the microphone on the cord is made out of cheap plastic but it seems to work okay.
Summary: When spending this much on a mic you should be happy that it even works. This does work and is comparable to a $50 mic I had purchased at Radio shack last year. My kids use it to do little performances in the living room and they love it. Im getting more for my brother for his kids to start a small band.
