Perfect little microphone.
LuisB., 28.04.2020
I really like this mic.

I'd like to first praise the following: having instant feedback about what the microphone is receiving is a god-send when using in-ears and on, say, a video-call. I vow not to ever again not have realtime monitoring output of my mic.

Worthy of mentioning: this is powered over USB, and whatever noise you get in the power input you'll get it on your monitoring too (not on the signal transmitted back to the PC). I noticed this by plugging the mic to the monitor's USB hub (which then goes to the desktop). Turns out it's a noisy +5V circuit, and this creates ungodly crackling on the monitoring port.

And it's digital crackling, rather than the usual analog noise that is very similar to white-noise.

Please be aware of that sensibility, and don't route your USBs near power circuitry :)

Can't Fault This Mic
RyanC, 07.07.2020
I purchased this mic for use on conference calls (Skype, Zoom & Microsoft Teams) as well as for creating Video/Podcast content.

In all respects it works perfectly - simple plug and play connection on my laptop and using the camera adaptor for my iPhone. The audio is crisp, clear and full.

I especially like it's smaller size as it fit's nicely on my desk, easily adjustable with the magnetic stand and picks up audio clearly from any angle.

Best mic with an affordable price
Braeder, 08.11.2020
The mic construction is really good, The sound is awesome, I have bought it for my home office to use this mic in meetings and the results are awesome. The only issue with the mic is that it is very sensible and catch also low volume ambient noise but I'm really happy with the purchase.

studio quality for dummies
Willem S., 04.05.2020
I use it for video streaming and teaching. It is compact and very easy to use. It sits gracefully on the desk. It's beautifully designed and more importantly it is a huge step up in quality compared to the microphone that comes with camera's for videostreaming. You could off course use a studio microphone and a dedicated sound card but it would take up more space and cables, cost you a lot more, and wouldn't make a big difference in sound quality. If it is mainly voice you want to record in front of a computer, I don't think you could do better for this price. A no-brainer to my ears and wallet.
The headphone out is also of good quality. When not recording, it makes for enjoyable listening when streaming music. It is a much better amplification and DA conversion than the standard outputs of a regular sound card.
My only niggle is that I would like it to have a switch that mutes the microphone. Maybe something for the NT-USB 2. Revolutionary!
