  • Excerpt: I use this microphone to record radio commercials. First time out it's doing just fine. Had a small indentation in the wind screen when I opned it up but not so big to make me send it back. I'd recomend it for non critical recordings.

Sweet Mic

  • Excerpt: I use the product in a school setting. It's nice b/c it finds and install appropriate drivers for Windows 7 automatically w/o needing admin privileges (plug and wait a little bit and play). It's drivers don't take over your sound card like some other USB mics I've used and it works well on Macs too.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Versatile

  • Excerpt: Best podcasting equipment in terms of price, ease of use, and quality. You would need a lot of separate equipment and more money to achieve what this USB mic does. If you are thinking of taking it anywhere it could not be easier, you just plug it to any computer via the USB port.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use
  • Cons: None

  • Excerpt: I got this mic to handle excess voiceover work for a statewide television show; its power and pickup are studio-quality. Immediately upon plugin the driver installed and with less than 5 minutes of fiddling with the settings (omni/cardoid/fig8)I had it up and running. So easy and sturdy!

subpar mic

AudioTechno, B&H Photo
2 February 2010
  • Excerpt: The product packaging and construction are very good. Sound good quality is not. It's muddled and just not crisp for a condenser. If you want quality voice capture, look elsewhere. I tested very cheap Olympus and Radioshack lavaliers and got better recordings with them than this mic.
  • Pros: Easy To Use
  • Cons: Poor Sound Quality
