Great Microphone and value


from AUstralia

Positives: - Microphone has 3.5mm jack allowing you to monitor with 0 latency - great function - Design is sleek, simple and made of metal, feels heavy and of quality - Sound quality is great, the range may not be that wide (50-15 000 Hz) but is ample at an amateur / hobby level - Overall great value, comes with a stand, zero latency is great function, price is good. Negatives: - Some cheapo carrying pouch / case would have been nice - Have heard of quality issues with the USB / Headphone jack such as breaking. Could be resolved if you minimise the number of unnecessary insertion / removal of USB / headphone cable Good for: - Amateur / hobby singers recording covers - Podcaster / Youtube / Voice over - Value for money - Upgrade from cheapo PC mic / inbuilt microphones


Nice flexible device


from Saint Louis, MO  -  Experienced

Nice to have option to "go pro" with XLR or direct to computer with USB in one device.


Pretty Good


from San Jose, CA  -  Practical
