Works Great

  • Excerpt: Works great on the Red Epic. This is especially important because the Red Epic is not wired for just any 1/8 microphone jack. The ME-52W can be left in the Red Epic for scratch or moved away from the noisy fans with the extension cable.
  • Pros: Compact Design

Lapel Mic

A Voice, B&H Photo
20 October 2014
  • Excerpt: I use this mic to record my voice when singing. Attached to an Olympus recorder, I find an improved quality of sound. The mic is flexible and quality of build appears to be excellent. The only problem I have is the windscreen comes off easily. No downgrade for this problem, it is just an irritant.

YES, adapters available on Amazon for using this mic with an iPhone or iPod!

  • Summary: OK, I bought this mic going in knowing that it would not work directly with an iPhone or iPad, but at this price, figured I could always find a use for it, and that perhaps there would be an adapter that would enable use with an iPhone. Good news on all fronts.

Great Little Mic

Boots McCoy, B&H Photo
8 July 2014
  • Excerpt: This really is a very useful mic for use "out in the field" or even for voice recording at home. Sound quality is great for a mic its size. It does have a unidirectional pickup pattern, but doesn't do as good a job at cancelling out ambient noise as an acutal shotgun mic.
  • Pros: Cheap, Compact Design, High Quality Sound, Reliable
  • Cons: Picks Up Background Noise

  • Excerpt: I interview people at industrial construction sites, that are so loud I can barely hear what people are saying. When I play back the interviews I can hear almost exactly what they are saying, clearly and wiht minimum noise. Of coures, I mike them carefully, putting the mike right below their mouth.

  • Excerpt: I'm not much of a mic expert, but I bought this little beauty for home voice recording and it's got to be one of the best deals out there. It's compact, has great noise-reduction capability (I live on 9th ave in Hells Kitchen and it doesn't even pick up a hint of outside traffic noise!
