Note that it doesn't have a transformer in it, so if you're going to plug this into something that only has a global phantom power switch you might not like the results! If you don't need any phantom power, or can turn it on and off per channel (and are careful not to plug this in to a channel that still has phantom power on by mistake) then it'll be fine.
Doesn't come with a mic clip or case, and the cable is XLR to mono jack using single core screened cable, so is next to useless for any pro audio people.
As others have said though, this microphone sounds remarkably good. I'm buying two more right now!
Edit: I now have three of these and they're great.
As a music technician, I'm not going to pretend this stacks up against any of the expensive mics by Rode, Sennheiser or even the model it's based on - the Shure SM57. But for the price, you won't find anything better. It picks up sound clearly and coherently, with hardly any hiss and good frequency response. In the past, I've used it for guitar (the sound of which in particular got praised) and I currently use it for audio commentary on YouTube videos I make, though if you are to use it for vocal work I would recommend a pop shield.
The reasons I have given it four stars instead of five are the fact that it doesn't come up with a mic clip and, more annoyingly, the cable is XLR to jack, not just a normal XLR cable. That took some working around originally but I got there.
However, if this doesn't bother you (if you have a jack input or just an XLR cable anyway), the microphone itself is top quality. One person gave it one star because his was faulty, but then we all receive occasional faulty products. I have had mine for well over a year now and it hasn't failed me once. It's been a fantastic purchase and I highly recommend it.
To my ears a good frequency response with mimimal peaks...nice clean highs and good bass reproduction.
Comes with an XLR to 1/4inch jack lead for connection to mixer etc.
Good value for money.
Good uni-directional performance to reduce speaker feedback.
If using for vocals get a windshield on it to stop annoying breath pops and booms.
Also for vocal use don't use the mike too close to your mouth as this artificially
increases the amount of bass...this is referred to in the instructions as the bass
proximity effect...However sometimes its useful to have that extra bass if you are
recording crooner numbers (e.g bing crosby etc. type stuff).
No on/off switch
Handling noise is quite high if using handheld...if you wobble the lead around
some noise gets transmitted to the mike. Its best to use on mike stand.
In conclusion ... Nice little mike, top value for money...I use it on a boom mike stand with my piano/keyboard and
it works very well in this situation.
I had literally just started to use the mic since I ordered a cheap sound card and microphone jack adapter from China that took a while to arrive. They were recommended by a popular microphone review YouTube channel so wouldn't be awful. I was going to use it to do Podcasts and music production with my electric guitar, I had just set up my guitar with a Real Tone cable successfully and tested it out with guitar rig and audacity (after installing some additional drivers and input/output controll software). It was the first time I tried setting up my guitar but this is just to outline the fact that I could do it relitivley easily with instructions and got it to work with no problems- so not a problem with my laptop, software or skills at setting it all up.
Then I went to test the mic, to begin with the headphone jack adapter didn't work but there was always the posibility that I needed the additional power for it to register so I plugged it into the USB sound card. What happened next was the most awful feedback sound, it seemed like it was the soundcard at first as it stopped when I tapped it a little. Then I realised it carried on when I tapped the metal at the bottom of the xlr cable so the signal wasn't getting to the microphone.
I opened it up after fiddling with settings to find that one of the red connecting wires wasn't attached to the base of the xlr cable. It had literally been inside the box or on my stand since I bought it so either it is just damanged or they were really weak wires. I would generally lean towards it being both as the wires were really thing looking. It is probably just bad luck that this happened by my first try at it but I had seen some reviews that it happened on the second.
I will give this mic 1* for now until I get to properly review a working microphone but I would stay away from buying it unles you know how to solder a microphone. Generally, consider getting replacement wires.
I bought this for around £12 but it is more expensive now, I probably wouldn't spend a lot on this mic as it seems like a common problem and could do with resoldering as soon as it is unpacked.
