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.
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.
Excerpt: Easy to setup, this package contains everything to get started at a more affordable price than other options. Sure, you must learn the software to fully take advantage of it, but it took me one minute to do my first recording.
Excerpt: I am a wildlife biologist and use the CO3U to record wildlife remotely (i.e. I am not present when the animal is calling). I can record wolf howls from > 1.4 km with this mic and the quality of the recording is good enough for me to use audio software and look at spectrograms where I can count the...
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use, Lightweight
Excerpt: Easy plug and play usb mic. out of the box and readily compatible with garage band right away. B&H had a great price that allowed me to get the desktop stand too. I use mine for podcasting and recording vocals.
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!
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Impressive, Sturdy, Versatile
Excerpt: This mic is above and beyond what I was expecting. I am re-mastering and recording an old CD I had from the mid 90's. The ease of using and setting up this mic was fantastic. There are so many features I am glad I went with this microphone.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
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.
