Great mic!
ArnoCyreus 28.11.2021
Bought this as an affordable SM7B alternative and honestly I'm quite happy with it. I have no experiences with podcasts/broadcasting, but I love dynamics for vocals and this one is a really cool take on a classic desing. It is not the same SM7B, so have realistic expectations, but it works really well on certain types of vocals (suits my voice really well), I also got really good results on guitar/bass cabs.
It has a bit more going on in the high end comapred to the SM7B and you'll either like it or dislike it, but I think it sounds good in it's own right.
Build quality is top notch, built like a tank! Heavy, metal construction, no give in the mesh and the windscreen works as intended.
The only cons are the absence of EQ switches and the foul smell of the windscreen, right out the box. The former is reasonable for the price though and doesn't take away much from the overall use of the mic, but the windscreen needs quite some time to gas off the smell before it's comfortable to put right up in your face...
All in all a pretty good mic for the money, I figure it'll get quite some use in the studio. Recommended!

Broadcasting!

In search for a replacement of our old large-diaphragm studio microphones we compared this (Presonus PD-70) and the very similar Shure SM7B (among others). And although many reviews mention the SM7B's neutral sound quality, we can't confirm that. The SM7B boosts low frequencies and makes voices sound warmer. The PD-70 is clearer and leaves voices as they are - at least to our ears. Will order three more for our radio studio.

Amazing product!
PhillyGVD 13.03.2021
I love the look and sound of the Shure SM7B (of course) but its too expensive for me. But this is the ultimate compromise. The sound quality is amazing, it's nice and heavy, and the price is not as hefty as the OG. I use it to game and randoms always ask me if i stream because the way my voice sounds is professional, and its mostly thanks to this beauty. I surely recommend this to anyone, even who is considering a SM7B

High quality broadcast mic for a very reasonable price
Fleeeep 18.01.2021
Absolutely delighted with the PD-70 . The sound is very smooth and balanced with a nice crisp detailed high end.
The frequency curve really gives great clarity with just the right amount of low end roll off, a flat and even mid range and a slight high end presence boost which is ideal for giving a little extra detail to speech. And the noise floor is extremely low, even with the gain almost full on my interface or mixing desk , there is barely any audible hiss.
The build quality is excellent, it's sturdy and the half yoke mount is solid but saves a little weight. It balances on a spring loaded boom arm perfectly. It stays exactly where you put it.
The included windscreen is perfect for reducing pops and it's a nice addition that you don't always get with mics in this price range.
All in all I highly recommend this mic. I can't think of any negatives at all.
