Top customer reviews
Included desktop tripod is OK but is impractical for me because you really need to be less than 10" from the mic to sound good.
Included XLR cable is as good quality as any but 10' may be too short for some.
Included pouch is a thoughtful addition but isn't very padded at all.
I got a great 'crushed box' deal on this mic via Amazon Warehouse Deals! Steep discount and the box contents were still in perfect shape.
Maybe using the XLR jack to a pre-amp or whatever, it may work fine. Which is exactly what I've been thinking of doing... but those are fairly expensive. Right know my kids are happy with those really-really cheap, computer/lapel mics that I bought from ebay a decade ago.
Note on the volume adjuster on the bottom: it's a rocker, not a dial, so quick and precise adjustments can be a little difficult. Also, instead of only affecting the volume output on the mic's headphone port, it's actually a volume rocker that controls the Windows system volume (not sure how it works on Mac). This isn't necessarily a negative; I'm just used to something different, as I've used Blue's Yeti mic for years.
If you have to use external speakers (can't use headphones), this dynamic mic goes a long way in cutting down on sound looping back through the mic.
The only "downside" to this mic is that you have to be so close to it for it to pick up your voice well. But it's a dynamic mic. Also, that's why it's so good at toning out all the background noise.
Overall really nice microphone for the price, but I am watching this thing like a hawk now because of its proclivity to stop working. Hopefully that just stops happening.
