Reasonable value, but flawed design
Kzil, 15.06.2020
The arm itself works like expected. It's a no-frills product but with some design flaws that you should be aware of.

1) Depending on your mic the mounting can be a little difficult. The top of the arm my conflict with the XLR-plug and/or FedHead, depending on what mic you use and how mount it.

2) The clamp need a solid table with a square profile.

3) The included cable is of abyssmally poor quality. Like: It sucks. It's seemingly totally unshielded and picks up *any* hum there might be. Even touching it results in hum, especially with a dynamic mic. Any cheap-ass shielded cable is way better.

Unfortunately you can't change it. You have to cut it and get rid of it and mount a shielded cable on the outside of the arm which kind of defeats the purpose. Unless you record inside a Faraday cage this cable could be a dealbreaker for you.

Next time I'll def go for a more expensive product with a better cable.

Great product, very pleased
Taz, 16.04.2014
I bought this to use in conjunction with an sE Electronics G3500 and I am very pleased with it. It clamps nicely on a low level shelf at the back of my desk and tucks neatly out of the way, with the mic permanently mounted. The mic is now instantly accessible and can be easily pulled into position to use when seated, or extended higher for when standing. The lightweight stand appears quite durable and, despite the mic being fairly heavy, maintains its position. It looks to me to be identical to the Beyer version, only at a better price.

K&M stuff are always on par
roccapl, 28.11.2020
This is a sturdy flexible arm to mount heavy broadcast microphones like my Shure SM7B and the ElectroVoice RE-20. It also comes with a long high quality cable. There are better alternatives but they cost twice and it the end this works perfectly.

Noisy springs
Tim Harris, 20.10.2020
This is almost unusable for me as part of my home-office set up for video conferencing. The springs scrape and clang against the frame when adjusting the arm. Even when the arm is in a fixed position, knocking the desk causes the springs to "ring".
