If you need a good mic for video/audio conferencing or podcasting, or for recording quick song ideas or music, look no further. This thing fits the bill at less than half the price of the nearest competitor, and does it better, IMO, in a better package. (and I've owned the Blue snowball and the Yeti).
Background: I have been playing music and writing songs for years, and I'm a gearhead so I already own tons of recording equipment in all shapes and sizes. You name a recording interface, I've probably owned it at some point, and I currently have a fully functional pc recording setup with a rackmounted pc and USB interface.
That being said, I can't carry my setup around in my pocket. Inspiration can strike at anytime, and this mic is so small that I can put it in the case and fit it in my pocket with my cellphone and keys. The pics offer no perspective on how small it really is, but to be sure, this thing is TINY.
I use REAPER as my DAW, and having used so many interfaces, I've done a fair share of troubleshooting to get devices to be recognized and function as they should, but this mic is truly plug-n-play. The mic has the omni switch on the side, which is a great feature and makes a world of difference depending on your application. The mic is super hot, and picks up sound beautifully in both modes. My intention was to have a small mic to plug in and record rough versions of "in progress" material, but just for kicks I plugged some earbuds into the headphone out to check out the direct monitoring. It works as advertised, but what I did not realize is that the pc sees the Go Mic as a mic input AND an audio output, so the headphone out can be used to monitor the WET signal from the DAW, which is GREAT news, since I like a little reverb and compression whenever possible, and it's nice to be able to eq to my taste. I add these FX in the chain so that I'm still recording just the dry signal from the mic, but I get to hear it in real time with whatever EQ and effects I like. I experienced no latency, but USB is USB, so any latency would be the fault of the computer rather than the mic anyhow.
Depending on the environment you're recording in and on your proficiency in the post production department,it's easily possible to get high quality tracks using this mic. If someone says otherwise, it's either because they own much more expensive mics, whose existence they need to justify, or because they don't know what they're doing. This is not a $1k ribbon mic, but it does stand up to several mics all the way up to the $200 range.
This mic sounds great, has an impressive form factor, and once you factor in the crazy low price, you really can't go wrong here. If it were lost or stolen, I'd order another one immediately without hesitation.
You say "Just buy a windscreen they're six bucks!" but here's the thing, there aren't any, there exists no windscreen for this microphone, it is a very strange shape for a microphone, too big for lapel windscreens, far too small for regular dynamic microphone windscreens, a very frustrating situation. You'd think with how tremendously popular it is a company would have pooped out a cheap little windscreen and cornered the market, but no, no they have not, leaving you in a pickle.
I recommend this if you have a completely soundless, windless area set up, I do not recommend this if you're the type of person who wants airflow in your area, plain a simple, it's a solid starting microphone.
