Perfect go-to mic. The industry standard for quality recording.
2 September 2014
Summary: I received this microphone along with the X2U Adapter, which allows you to just record from your laptop without an expensive interface. I purchased this originally to record sound effects for a sound design course I was taking. The microphone is a "cardioid mic" which means that it picks up sound from a specific direction, which is important in a situation where there are other sounds around you that you want to keep to a minimum.
Excerpt: This purchase replaces an SM57 that finally gave up the ghost. It was a go-to voice mic for us for decades. Great response and frequency range. Sounded great to the last but a drop to the floor one last time did it in. This is always a good buy.
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Versatile
Excerpt: I use this as a voiceover mic when on the road and not in the studio. Run it through a Tascam US-200 and then to my laptop via USB. It's built like a tank and a great full-bodied sound with good proximity and excellent off-axis attenuation. Love this mic...and for the bucks, love it even more! You can't go wrong!
