MxL delivered more low range, had more presence and was crisper than the lav, but these little cheap things are still an improvement over the mic in the 600D. Tested later against the mic in a Canon Vixia HF R20, and, while the R20's inbuilt is much cleaner than the 600D's the lav still edged it out, in my opinion. Direct input into the either camera resulted in something of a mixed bag. Solid improvement over the inbuilts but, against a dedicated recorder, the camera's electronics are noticably a step down, even from the lowly H1. Plus the cord isn't really long enough for direct input to be practical.
Bottom line, any dedicated mic with recorder will almost always be better than the mics in most low to midrange cameras, and even getting the mic away from the camera helps a lot. So those on a shoestring budget wanting to do talking head style videos should take notice of these little wonders.
This is a package of 3 different individual microphones all shipped together. That makes these around 1.50$ each after shipping. As far as I can tell that makes these the cheapest mics on all of amazon.
All 3 of them work perfectly. I set my windows recording level to maximum and that seems to adequately pick up my voice.
The plastic clips are not glued on, and are just held on with friction. You can remove them entirely just by sliding them off. This could probably be fixed with a little elmers glue if you cared enough.
I don't clip them to my shirt, I just clip them to my keyboard wire which is about 3 feet from my face. That way I don't have to deal with moving it around every time I start or stop recording.
I compared them to the Olympus ME-15 Microphone I normally use, (22$ at time of writing) and these only sound slightly worse. I would have to be listening pretty hard to even notice the difference. The Neewers seem to pick up a little more of the ambient room noise like my computer fan. Considering the Neewers are only a fraction of the price, I would have used these if I could do things over.
If you are lucky enough to get a batch that works they seem decent, according to reviews, but if not it's a bit of a hassle to deal with. I think I'll just wait and replace them with a more expensive, but reliably well made, brand.
These are omnidirectional, so they do pick up some background noise. They are also pretty hot, so you'll need to turn your gain down. Once I had them dialed in, all three worked great. The clip attaches to the body of the microphone, and holds tightly. There is a little contact noise, as is expected from a lavalier/clip microphone, but the light weight makes it minimal.
What is not so great? Well, the bottom end rolls off around 100hz, but depending on use, that might be a good thing. The cord doesn't feel very durable, and they are pretty sensitive to background noises and speech. Otherwise they are a great buy!
