* Reasonably large dynamic range and plenty for recording voices
* No battery required
* Included windscreen is plenty good for regular indoor use
* Cord length is just the right length
* Price. I think there are competing products with equal sound quality for far less money.
* Cord vibrations are easily picked up and cord is extremely thin/fragile
* Included clip is too large to easily hide on clothing
* Lower output signal requires a good sound card/recording device with pre-amp for good quality recordings
* Rarely works with USB-C to 3.5mm adapters
All in all, I have mixed feelings on whether I would recommend this lavalier mic or not. The sound quality can be fairly good if you have good equipment to feed it into, but expect to spend a decent amount to get great audio. It's too expensive for what it achieves in my opinion but it will do the job.
On amazons part shipping came faster than expected. I ordered Monday night and received Thursday afternoon (today.) Was very excited to upgrade my mic setup so I opened the box right away. Everything looked high quality the mic itself is small but solid looking and comes with a sturdy metal clip. The manual said it will work if you plug straight into your recording device, and not to put the windscreen on too tight (leave room for air to move.) I did all of this with my PC first just how I did with my old 3.5mm mic. I didn't get any recording pickup so I checked my recording device input and everything seemed right. I then tried with my xbox controller and a 3.5mm headphone/mic splitter. Headphones worked but not the mic. Then I tried that on my iPhone with the Shure app, still doesn't even read it. Same with my camera it will not pick up any sound. Lastly I use my PC again with FL Studio and it picks up a helicopter like sound like something is definitely broken in there. I'm just looking for a good lav omni/stereo mic under 100$
I will be patient and try out a replacement but if it takes too long I'll just go with a different mic.
