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.

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.

Very versatile
07.03.2017
I bought a pair of these to use as overheads for drums, although it's not the main field of use of the mic. Also they weren't matched by Aston (not even sure it's possible), but I have to say they're very close in sound, more than enough for what I use them.

The sound is very balanced and pretty flat too, not much coloring. Great buy!

Very good mic!
Gabriel5936, 07.07.2018
I use this mic in my Home-studio to record mainly vocals, rooms, claps and snaps, ambient sounds, sometimes to stream...) but can do a lot more. Also, I use it with a clean preamp (no colour added). It needs phantom power (+48V) like all condenser mics. This mic records closely to the reality. Maybe a little boost in the high frequencies.
It's a mic with good sensitivity (more than an AKG 414 for example). There is a built-in popfilter, but I still use one with it. I'm not always completely satisfied with the built-in plus it protects even more the mic so.... it's all good.

I recommand this mic, good deal for a sturdy mic and pretty clean recordings.
Also, no shockmount with it, but a nice box with manuals, stickers and a little gift!

Enjoy!
