Excerpt: I use this mike to record webinars and podcasts while traveling so I don't have to carry my mixing console. It's very simple to use and, though a bit heavy as a single mic, it's a lot lighter than carrying a mixing console and whatnot. The sound is crisp, clear, and seemingly balanced across the frequency spectrum. The built-in monitoring feature is very handy. My computer and software instantly recognized it with little fuss.
