Love this mic! Did a ton of research for days and decided on this. Condensors pick up too much background noise. Because this is a dynamic mic, it does not. Fantastic radio quality sounding voice with great depth. I use it on my PS4 with the USB but just upgraded to a Yamaha AG03 3 channel mixer to be able to use it's XLR connection. Amazing mic, highly recommend!

Shipment was slightly delayed due to covid 19 but came promptly, was in excellent condition and I would most definitely recommend 😊

Because it's a dynamic mic, it's pretty decent at rejecting noise: I managed to record vocals for a song with literal construction going on a floor above me. Sound quality wise it's great; this is often recommended for podcasting and I completely understand why.

Currently using it with the USB port, as I'm saving up for a good audio interface, but once I get it I can still continue using this mic with the XLR port! This dual-port feature alone probably makes it a better option than the multiple other USB-only mics available in this range: you can upgrade your setup later and still use it!

Some minor cons:
1. The provided tripod/stand is pretty flimsy as multiple people have pointed out, handle with care if you plan on using it.
2. Would have preferred an included windscreen. I had to purchase some cheap ones on my own (along with a pop filter!)
3. The first model I recieved had some internal issue which caused static noises while recording through USB. Had to ask for a replacement (which is working fine).
4. Including a USB C to USB C cable is great (and this mic does work great on my android phone), but apparently the usb c standard is not implemented correctly, and your existing c to c cable (or many third party ones) might not work. Might be an important point if you're buying this exclusively for your iPad or phone.

In summary, go for it if you're planning on using it for singing, podcasting or any kind of voice work, and also if you record in noisy households!
