Excerpt: I bought this for the very noisy (discotheque etc..) situtaions. I have not used this in a shoot situation as yet. But did test in different possible situations, sounds very good. I know I will not be using it very often but good to have it part of my microphone collection.
Excerpt: I dind't actually need this mic - it came with a wireless ENG mic package. That said, I'm shocked at how good it is. I've used it in a test video with my wife and daughter just to see if I was given a dud or something more. Really solid quality.
Excerpt: I bought this mic to use attached to WRT-8P(250w wireless plugon) which we use as Clerk of Course mic for television live to air horse racing in Australia. It needed to be omni, it needed to sound at least as good as an SM 63, it needed to look ok , it needed to be cheap and it needed to be tough.
Excerpt: I have been using this mic for recording while traveling. The audio is great. It is well built and travels well. It could use a protective cover for the terminal end to prevent physical damage and keep dirt out.
Excerpt: I use this mic for doing on-field interviews as well as professional voice-over work. I love the long stem for beautiful handling. It's sleek looking and fits perfectly in my mic case. What may be a downside to it is the black paint chipping off if you do not protect it.
