Brilliant value for money, flakey usb cable
Rowland Straylight, 19.06.2020
I bought some of these as cheap USB mics for video calls and recording youtube videos in very basic studios. My mum has one and the other is on loan.

They are NOT large diaphram condensers, they are a small condenser in a large case. Still, they have a much larger capsule than you'd find in your webcam and the sound is very full and balanced.

I think my mum described it best as "that sounds like you rather than you on the telephone or you pretending to read the news" I think i should clarify that some as I tend to use whatever studio mic i have to hand when I make a youtube or a videocall and tend to have a very radio shock-jock or newsreader sound set up, it's very clear but it's also a "sound" rather than natural me. I'm not trying to say this is an AT4035, U87, or something I'd use to record a singer but it's not particularly flavoured either.

It's only 16 bit, which is enough for video call purposes, and it can do 44.1 and 48kHz but no better.

I wish it had an internal preamp booster, as it can be a bit quiet at times, easy enough to sort but sometimes required a bit of lateral thinking and it's maybe a a bit quiet used unprocessed.

But it's riduculously cheap and absolutely slays the competition at this price.

Not compatible with Apple Mac mini
Wakado, 22.05.2020
I connected the Fun Generation USB One mic directly to a USB port on my Apple Mac mini to use for Zoom calls. Whenever I spoke the unit caused a low-level distorted echo that matched my speech pattern immediately after I had finished speaking. When I replaced the Fun Generation USB One mic with a Zoom H2-configured as a USB mic, everything worked fine so the incompatibility issue is with the Fun Generation USB One mic.
Apple Mac running OS 10.15.4

Pros: RMA raised without any problem so very happy with support from Thomann
Cons: I have to find a USB mic that works as I need the H2 for another task.

Way more than decent, plug'n'play and bang for the buck!
fommof, 26.02.2019
I was looking for a cheap USB microphone to record 6string and 12string acoustic guitars in my living room.

Well, that does the job.

First of all, it's plug and play, I use it on Win10 and I don't have to do anything more than to just plug it in. It immediately shows up on the recording sources lists and the only thing you have to do is to just select it on your DAW (Reaper and Audacity in my case).

I have zero issues with noise, I place it about 12-15 intches away from the 12th fret/soundhole and it captures the sounds nicely.

In terms of features, I would love it to have a gain knob (just to push a few dbs) but that's alright, we are still talking about a 20 euro microphone.

No regrets here.
