And the sound quality is great.

Sadly, that is not the case and now I must try to sell it since the time for return has passed.

I've remedied this problem by wrapping tape around the neck to keep it in place.

I've worn this headset for 6 years to teach aerobics classes. It gets sweaty, bounced around and spit on but keeps on working. I teach in many different facilities and the sound quality is completely dependent upon the sound system - the microphone itself delivers high quality sound if used with a quality sound system.

One recommendation if you use it for teaching aerobics - spray Scotchguard on the windscreen (foam ball over the microphone). My first headset went eventually developed some problems due to corrosion from the sweat and spit. I Scotchguarded the windscreen on the next one I bought and have had no problems with it.

Style Name: Terminated for PRO88W Verified Purchase
I recently bought this microphone for Dragon NaturallySpeaking (Medical Edition), after I broke the mini-plug on the Sennheiser ME3 that I had been using. The price of the Audio-Technica is considerably lower than the price of the ME3. Furthermore, the accuracy of the Audio-Technica is astonishing and better than that of the ME3. The only early problem I had was that the headset was a bit tight, but I found by trial and error a position that worked for me, and I now find the headset very comfortable. Thoroughly happy with my purchase.

I've been using this mic for about a year now. The sound quality is good when paired with a good audio system. The build quality isn't so great. The neck will twist and fall away from the mic constantly. I've remedied this problem by wrapping tape around the neck to keep it in place. A good fix, although such a problem shouldn't exist. i know several people that recommended this microphone and they all have the same problem with the neck. I'd look elsewhere.

Edit: 4/8/2014

So I've used the same mic for five years now. Forget what I said about the neck thing. It's irrelevant. I'm a professional tour guide and this thing has been stepped on, tripped over, rained on, bent CONSTANTLY, and used 5 days out of the week for 5 years and the original unit is STILL GOING GREAT. It's a steal. I'd get it. Forget what I said in the original post: I was young and naive. This is a fantastic piece of equipment that won't ever quit on you.

Reviews seem to be split down the middle on this item. From what I can tell, the people who liked this mic were those who know how to equalize. Those who don't like it should learn how and it'll make their lives easier. Microphones need to be equalized or at least run through a pre-amp to get a good sounds out of them, and this is no exception. With no pre-amp and just a little bit of equalizing this thing sounds absolutely beautiful. It picks up the highest highs and the lowest lows and accurately reproduces them. As an active performing musician I can say with confidence that this headset mic meets all of my needs. Whether I'm rocking out on the drums or playing a piano ballad, I always have the mic just where I need it. Don't hesitate to buy it!

Style Name: Standard XLR Verified Purchase
I bought this mic for my son who plays electric guitar, so he can hear his voice over the instrument amp when he's practicing. It's great in that he doesn't have to play around with a boom stand and having to angle the mic to get the pickup level he wants. He can practice in a lazy position on his bed or on the couch, without having to ditch the mic, and it sounds as good as your setup will let it sound. I run it straight to an acoustic amp with 6 band eq, and it sounds no better and no worse than my SM 58. The pickup is not as sensitive, though, so it needs a little more amplification to get the level you want, but I guess that's a good thing for this kind of mic. The only thing that I'm really concerned about is the durability of the cable. It is very thin, and feels a lot more fragile than say, a usb phone charger. The XLR connector is made out of really thin plastic, and could probably break if a heavy person sat on it, so I'm going to have to insist that my son restricts the use of this mic to those under a certain weight limit.:)That may become an issue as time goes by, but hopefully my son can avoid mistreating this thing, and we can have a few good years with this product.

I am a singing drummer and purchased this mic years ago for roughly the same price it sells for now. I can honestly say that when space is not an issue, I use a Shure SM58 on a boom stand, but for small stages and club work, this mic does the trick. Be sure to have the mic aimed directly at your mouth for best results and keep it pretty close. It doesn't pick up too much background noise and for the price is a great option.

The only other issue is that it has no on-off switch, but the right cable takes care of that. I give it an 8 out of ten.

This is an EXCELLENT noise-cancelling mic that's useful for a wide variety of things. It's used in the broadcast radio industry a lot. It employs a dynamic mic element, which means there's no self-noise as there's no built-in pre-amp. Dynamic mics don't put out as large of a signal as condenser mics, so they need a good pre-amp or equipment with preamps for dynamic mics (ie., higher-gain). Dynamic mics don't clip on loud noises as readily, and they can handle a wider dynamic range than condenser mics.

The mic also has a cardioid pick-up pattern, which means it's going to pick up what it's pointing at (your mouth, hopefully) and not what's around and behind it. This makes it great for noisy environments.

People say it's not good for use with computers, but that's only because it has an XLR plug on it and most computers have 1/8" mini-jack. You can get an adapter for that, but you're better off getting an external USB audio interface. I've been using the Tascam US-366 with this, and it's an awesome combination.
