The included two-additional 3M pads and one additional magnet bases is great if you change headsets or make a mistake, and the included cable clips are invaluable!
Regards the build, design, comfort, ease of use and set-up, all are essentially as advertised and described by other users. I had to place the glue magnet base on a headset (sennheiser) that has a metal mesh external ear design. No issues, the device is firm in place and not going anywhere. I love the fact the design allows me to swing the mic up and out of my face when not in use. Also the in line mute is a life saver. Although I think Antlion's next design might want to consider a mute light (red) and active (green) or something. Would be easier to know when muted since this button is too close to the ear to actually SEE the position of the button. I have to literally memorize if 'up' is muted or active!
Second thing I would ask is for more of those tiny wire clips! I mean c'mon! 5 clips is all you get. Those are enough for now, but I would have placed a few more along the wired path just to keep it more neat and tidy. Obviously I could use anything! lying around the house, but those clips do actually work.
Sound quality is tops. It is advertised and rated as a great quality mic and I agree, after doing a skype test message, my own voice sounds great, as it did with my older headset/mic combo which has a decent mic (turtle beach). So far I am loving this set up and wished I had known about this product a year ago.
I recommend to anyone thinking about getting it, you won't regret the purchase. For the price, it's a steal. Just be sure to place the mic base exactly where you want, as I imagine it would be a hassle to rip it off your headset to try and re-position it. If I could do it over, I would have placed the mic an inch or two more forwards so the mic would be more direct in front of my mouth, rather than sitting at the left corner of my lip. However it seems to NOT make a difference in sound to the guy on the other end of conversation. Probably if it were direct in front of me, I would have moved i anyways.
The sound quality of this microphone is outstanding, so much so that I can use it for recording music better than many other mics around it's price range. It's a very small and effective package that is a solid price. At first I thought that the price ($50) was too high for such a little mic, but it's worth it. The adhesive sticks very well and doesn't damage the microphone or leave any residue behind whatsoever.
Sure, not 5 stars because there are a few cons with this microphone as well. One is that eventually the adhesive on the magnet that attaches the mic to your headphones, while as good as it is eventually gave way (after about a year or more). Luckily the mic ships with a spare magnet and adhesive pad.
Another con is that the mic isn't all too stable, if you get...say bouncy. The mic will shift up by itself from a moderate amount of force, this can be annoying if the cord (which is very long) somehow gets the slack pulled too much. It'll move on the magnet and you will have to adjust it or reattach it.
Overall a great product though.
