Excerpt: I'm using this microphone with a portable digital recorder, and the combo is great. This mic is typical of Shure products; it's rugged and sounds great. This model is the omnidirectional version - I also have a couple MX393/C which have a cardioid pattern.
Excerpt: We use two of these in a conference room with a video conferencing system. They are placed at two points on the conference table and pick up all conversations no matter which direction the participant is talking.
Excerpt: I vertically mounted this mic on a wall in a medical treatment classroom. It was to be used to hear conversation and responses by an observer in an adjoining area. I needed something unobtrusive and with enough sensitivity to provide clear audio, but without too much ambient noise.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: 4 1/2 stars. These mics perform as you'd expect. I use two of them to record audio on typical conference room tables. Used with both Mackie 402 mixer and a Sound Devices 302. Excellent results with both. Obviously the further away someone is from this mic, the more room sound you get.
Excerpt: This is astoundingly good boundary mic for ~$. Much more solid, heavy, and elegant (both the mic and the inline preamp unit) than I expected. Pattern and noise are just as advertised. For most conference room applications, the room noise (computers, AC, etc.
Pros: Elegant, Great Pickup, Long Cable, LOW NOISE, Well-made
Excerpt: Used to record government meetings. Sound quality and pick-up depends on the room, but these are unobtrusive and work better than the gooseneck mics with a cardioid pattern we were using. One caveat - needs phantom power source (48V)
Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
