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!

Awesome Studio Mic
25.03.2016
Very clear and clean sounding mic with a balanced bass response. Sounds great on almost everything, from vocals to guitars to drums. Recorded some male vocals on it a few weeks ago and barely needed any compression, EQ, or reverb and it sounded fantastic. With all the pickup pattern options and dB pad options, probably the best studio mic in this price range. Very robust and durable, it looks and feels like it could survive bumps, hits, or scratches that other microphones couldn't.

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!
