Excellent first mic
Kalpagony, 13.02.2018
This was the first condenser microphone I ever purchased- about 9 years ago, and have been using it since. Recorded a few albums and other projects with it, and it still works great and is the workhorse of my home studio. A few months ago I decided to buy another one to be able to record in stereo.
1. Build quality is great. Sturdy. After 9 years the mount still holds firmly and the cable insert is as tight as ever.
2. Features. Not much options here, simple cardioid polar pattern without any padding or filter switches. At the price it's okay though. Also, less stuff to get ruined. And if this is your first mic it's a great learning tool for mic placement and stuff.
3. Handling. I don't really like the mount, it's not very practical, a bit tricky to get the mic in good position. But once it's there it holds firmly so it does the job I guess. A separate shock mount might be a good investment.
4. Sound. I haven't really used better quality mics on a regular basis so I don't have much to compare it to but so far I managed to get nice results with it. Very versatile if you play around with placement. Very nice clean sound, but can be a bit flat and thin while being low mid heavy at the same time if you don't bother with correct positioning. I recorded countless instruments with it, made recordings of 50+ tracks with only this mic and had pleasing results. Great for drum overheads as well, I also tried it as a wurst mic and does a surprisingly good job at it.
5. All in all this is an excellent first choice for the home studio and can be your main mic for years. I think it is great value for the money and upgrading would only be a noticable plus if you bought stuff around 3-4× the price of this.

Great microphone for home recordings and more
Sheen , 04.05.2019
This is the first microphone that I bought for my home recording sessions as per recommendations from a friend of mine who works as a professional sound engineer. Great microphone for its price.

Great low and high frequencies, but maybe falls a bit short in regards to the mid frequencies. Have been using it to record vocals, different types of sound samples (finger snaps, claps, etc.) as well as acoustic guitars, which sound great through this microphone. Some of the recorded home samples with this microphone have been used later in professionally recorded songs, so you are definitely looking at a great quality, affordable microphone.

Well built, feels strong and durable. Have been using it for more than a year now and have traveled with it for a bit and can't report any issues or damage to the exterior. Does have a good weight which in turn provides steadiness when attached to a microphone stand.

If you are looking for a great microphone to start of with and don't want to bust your bank, I highly recommend getting this microphone. Even though I think it lacks a bit in regards to mid frequencies, other than that this is a great choice.
