Overall great performance. I use the microphone to record my classes in grad school for a hearing disability I have so my computer can transcribe the lectures and discussions. It works great for lectures, but is a bit less effective for discussions; it does pick up sound from most directions, but the quality is muddied for speech coming from more than a 45-degree angle from where the mic is pointed. My transcription software does fine with voices coming from right in front of me and up to that 45 degrees in both directions, but student comments coming from either side of me but outside of that "triangle" are unclear. Overall, though, it does the trick and is certainly affordable! Most mics which offer any better performance than this would be much more expensive, so I appreciate the quality for the price I paid.

This is reasonably good mic. It has pretty good sound quality for speech; I have not tried it for music. The Cable length is sufficient for my purposes.

The lapel clip is quite lame; it is molded as part of the mic housing and could easily break off; I have not had that problem but I go pretty easy on my electronics. The more annoying aspect of the clip is its positioning; it is on the back which is fine if you don’t mind the wire hanging out but if you turn it around so the mic and wire are inside of a shirt with just a little of the mic sticking out the mic is aimed inward toward the body and is more subject to friction noise.

Over all a pretty good product but the lapel clip issue looses a star.

Doesn't pick up sound unless i put it almost on my mouth. It seems to work for some, but for me personally, definitely not.

I have some Audio Technica headphones which I love so I thought I would give one of their microphones a try. The mic doesn't pick anything up unless it's 2 inches from your mouth, and even then you have to talk loudly. They say you can attach it to your monitor for video conferencing, but you would have to be screaming your head off. I got this for using with Rosetta Stone and it's completely worthless.

Due to the price I wasn't expecting much out the microphone, but I really thought it could pick up better than it does. It sits just below my monitor and it can't pick up my voice. I basically have to hold it directly in front of my mouth for it to work. I had intended to use it for voice control of some features of my computer, but it doesn't work due to the poor pickup of the mic. No levels of mic boosting or playing with audio settings helped.

I would look for another model instead of buying this one. It just wasn't worth it.

Cons:

-I did have to turn up the microphone sensitivity by about 10db from the windows settings

When I was lacking for funds, I needed a cheap mic to communicate with my friends over Steam. I purchased this mic and it wasn't too bad. Changing settings in Hardware and Volume Control will probably be necessary though. My friends couldn't hear me unless I was yelling into the mic but, changing the decibel level in Recording Devices helped tremendously. I keep the mic clipped to my shirt so, I don't have problems with others or programs picking up on my voice. For what you pay for this mic, it is a great value. The clip on the back of the mic ended up breaking off after light use but, the mic is still functional.

PROS
+ Cheap
+ Decent quality
+ Can use with your own headphones instead of buying a gaming headset

CONS
- Might require some configuration
- Clip on back of mic a little flimsy

I needed a microphone that would work for both video games and VOIP conferencing, since I work from home. Co-workers have commented that my call quality has gone way up (they can hear me more clearly over the normal noises around me such as a window air unit, a puppy, etc.). I also like the functionality of having it on my monitor or lapel, although I have not yet tried the lapel function.

My only complaint is that the microphone is easily dislodged from it's mount and requires some amount of work to get it positioned appropriately to not fall out at the slightest bump of the cord. It may have been a better idea to make it a mount that clicks and holds the mic a bit more strongly.

All things said, I am very happy with my purchase and it has been a definite upgrade in call clarity and a reduction in background noise pick-up.
