Fantastic studio mic
JL Cook, 28.04.2020
This mic is perfect for many applications. I had amazing results with voice overs, broadcasts, male singers, bass amp, acoustic piano and flute. It's really solid, well built, nice and heavy.
The ONLY thing I find sometimes annoying is that without an external shockmount or balljoint you can't tilt the microphone, as it screws directly onto the mic stand or the boom arm. This may be a problem if you are setting up some stereo recording techniques, but other than that it isn't an issue. It has a built-it shockmount that works nicely.
It has 3 switches, one for the highpass filter (80Hz), one for the polar pattern (cardioid, omnidirectional, figure of 8) and one for pad (-20dB, -10dB, 0)
The microphone is just amazing, not harsh, full bodied, and really solid, perfect for acoustic instruments, cabs and voice-overs.

Good all-rounder at a reasonable price
Ingridk_, 19.02.2021
I purchased this mic to record vocals remotely but the different polar patterns gives me the option to record so much more such as multiple voices at once.

The build quality is very sturdy and the mic itself is quite heavy- which I enjoy but the weight maybe something you want to consider if that bothers you.

For the price and sound quality - this mic is a real goer, obviously it won't compare to the top rated neumann mics but I find that is still a quality mic and I think setting up the space around it in a room can really set you up for success.

No shockmount
yahelfelipe, 29.04.2020
This is a great sounding mic but it needs a shockmount.

pro
build quality is great
sounds great in a lot of sources ( guitar, cello, voice, m/s the 8 form recording side is awesome)

cons
It gets a lot of noise from the floor, for a good recording you will need a shockmount!
NO SHOCKMOUNT!
NO CASE!
BAD SHIPPING BOX!

So, this mic sounds ok but I am still mad about the shipping box (mine arrived crashed and wet, even the plastic arround the mic was opened because to ship this you need to put A PROTECTING CASE, RIGHT ASTON? the mic works (I dont know how and for how long) but, at this price point the shockmount and the flying case should be included. 3 stars.
