Great mic for it's price
Tiappa, 02.10.2017
I love this mic and have used it a lot for acoustic guitars and vocals. In my opinion (and I'm really not a sound or recording expert, more of a composer/songwriter) it sounds great, especially for the price. But it's a somewhat specific sound: warm, without as much headroom and not as neutral as the more expensive Blue models like the dragonfly etc.

wasted money, do not buy
mariozeppe, 23.01.2019
i needed 3 substitution before getting one that could work without buzzing or intereferences. the 4th eventually seemed to work for a while than all all the sudden the volume dropped and it was unmanageable to do any clear recordings. Thomann has been absolutely spot on to do all the possible and replacing the order 3 times, is the mic itself that is really garbage. never again Blue Micropohones. buy some trusted brands and never mind this new entries in the market.

Great quality for it's price
Paul Tsai, 22.05.2018
Crystal, futuristic sounds. I found it's great to record female vocal in those modern electronic pop songs, or even certain hip-hop rapper.
Though it still can't beat those high-end microphone. Consider it's price, it's still a great microphone

Mi mejor compra
Iñaky, 26.05.2020
Acabo de iniciar en la música, así que estaba mirando micrófonos, y vi a unos artistas que yo escucho usando este micro, así que me puse a buscar información acerca de el, y vi buenas y malas opiniones, así que decidí comprarlo para dar mi opinion.
En el sonido, es un micrófono con un brillo que me encanta, tiene una calidad profesional en todo su rango de frecuencias. lo uso junto a mi focusrite Scarlett 2i2 y suena a estudio profesional. La calidad de los materiales es muy buena y tiene un diseño muy bonito.
lo recomiendo 100%, en vez de gastárte el dinero en uno barato como hice yo y después tener que comprar otro, compra este micrófono directamente y vas a tener un único gasto, porque no te vas a arrepentir.
