One of the best at its price but...
StormXXV, 12.04.2019
I got one of these back in 2015 and a second one this year.
We use them for 2 purposes: one is singing (soprano) and the other is ASMR.
From a sound standpoint, this microphone delivers. I like its neutrality and the fact I can EQ the recording in whichever way I please while maintaining the naturalness of the original source.
The -10db and bass roll-off switches are good to have too, just in case you need them. The filter is a pretty big deal as well.
I have been in LOVE with this until I started to do ASMR. Love it or hate it, ASMR is a good way to prove stereo pairing and sensitivity. Unfortunately, it's just here where the Origin fell a bit short.
Not only the 2019 one has a different feel from the previous (warmer sound and louder), but both have pretty high self noise levels which won't be noticed when singing, but are definitely a hindering when it comes to ASMR, especially if gain levels won't be the same due to poor pairing, making the noise much louder on one side.
Too bad because the sound clarity itself is spectacular for ASMR.

Summary:
If you're on a budget and need to record good vocals and instruments, look no further.
If you're an aspiring ASMRtist, there will be better options at a similar price range.

This is a game changer
SerdarY., 09.07.2020
I recently bought it and I surprised when I record out my metal sound.

High end, low end and mid's are really impressive, I definitely recommend.

Great microphone for vocals and instruments!
douglasives, 16.07.2020
Sounds brilliant, not just for vocals, rugged, looks amazing, good price!

Pros: Works great on vocals and instruments: I've recorded male vocals, trombone, and acoustic guitar and they all sound excellent. Incredible quality for the price, it feels like it's built to last.

Cons: Not really a con as I haven't seen another microphone with an inbuilt pop filter, but I would say requires an external pop filter if you're going to be recording lots of vocals.
