To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I’m absolutely livid that my package just arrive without the microphone. The most important part of the package. I initially thought it was a scam but it’s amazon product. I could scream right now. How the hell does that happen. What happened to quality:product checks. I can’t even deal with how pissed off I am right now!!
Just received this item, or rather didn't. A beautiful box contained everything but the microphone, despite the outer packaging being in perfect condition. Given that Amazon offers no advantage on price, buying face to face from a retailer would be my strong recommendation.
First of all I gotta say I personally love the sound of this mic and used it alot of times before. But Amazon ruined the whole experience for me kudos. 1. I got a defective piece right of the bat, the front capsule was not picking up any sound. And had a lot of noise, tried changing cables didn't solve anything. Unboxing experience ruined, got soo frustrated having to spend soo much money waiting 7 -10 days for the delivery and getting that experience right of the bat. 2. Called customer service everyday and they kept giving me different excuses everytime and kept delaying the refund process. (Also they didn't have a replacement option,hence the refund, which ruined the experience even more for me) 7 days already passed and I have to wait another 7-10 days or even more who knows? For the product to get picked up and returned and another 4-5 days for the refund process. And all they could tell me was "let's hope for the" that's very assuring thanks Amazon. 3. I had to postponed a few recording sessions of my clients, costing me alot of money and wasting my time unnecessarily. And bring me a lot of frustration and headaches. Thanks again. . My advice if you love this mic like I do (or planning to buy any expensive electronics) save yourself from this kind of unnecessary frustrations and headaches. Go to a store and get it offline or elsewhere where there is proper quality check of the products before they send out the product. Cheers hope this helps 👍
I wish I could could sing it’s praises in the review, however, the microphone wasn’t working properly straight out of the box. Opened it up, set it straight on my mic stand, plugged it into my Apollo and turned on phantom power, and got nothing. The only way it worked is if it was slanted. I’m guessing It was one of the pins on the mic since I used different inputs and cables to make sure there wasn’t anything wrong on my end. It’s a shame that this slipped past quality control at AKG considering how much it costs. I went with another mic.
