A very low-noise and sensitive mic
TRLDEX, 30.11.2020
I was using it for few weeks in voice recording and I find it great. Voices are very clear and given its high sensitivity the tiniest lips move will be caught in the recording. It is compatible with all audio interfaces with phantom power, it doesn't need +60dB gain or more like sensitivity mics.

PROS:
- pristine voices clarity
- very low internal noise
- build quality
- the built-in metallic pop-filter will only partially obturate your view, so you could still be able to read on the monitor of the paper in front of your eye
- frequency response if really-really good

NEUTRALS:
- the built-in metallic pop-filter does the job well, but it's not as good as the regular double textile/mash filter is even better in getting rid of S's and pop's
- it's very good sensitivity might be a downsize for people not having at least a minimal room acoustic isolation

CONS:
- the length of pop-filter's arm seems too big for me, but it's easier to cut in half if really needed (it's made of plastic after all)

Great first Mic for home studio use
GhostofOhio, 01.04.2021
I've had this for almost a year now. Used it on loads of vocals and guitar tracks so I've seen it deliver time after time. Last year when corona virus was being to rear its ugly head, I decided to get back into home recording after a 12 year hiatus.

I researched loads of mics, both budget and midrange for setting up my home studio. I Looked at frequency response graphs, signal to noise, max spl... Every metric I could get my hands on. Watched video reviews of everything. After 2 weeks of research I decided on these fella right here. What a good little Mic! However, It's not a Neumann by any stretch of the imagination. It is reasonably flat in its response with eq bumps in the right places which compliment vocals and acoustic instruments. For a basic "do everything" studio Mic it's really great! Especially for the money!

Ps, I didn't give all 5 stars because of what it is. I had high quality gear years ago before it was sold off. I know what top notch microphones record and sound like. This is so close to high end gear which is exceptional considering it's a budget microphone at the end of the day.

Tough to beat at the price
YannisPapadopoulos, 11.03.2021
I've bought this for a friend and tested it with them, and , additionally, I recommended to another friend too.

They're both extremely happy with the sound and I'm also extremely happy of how easy it and enjoyable it is to mix their voices.

It has quite a natural sound and frequency response, so, it never gives you too much trouble with picking up "weird"/"wrong frequencies. Plosive rejection is also great!
The low-cut options are a very welcome addition. It's very safe to use the 80hz cut especially on female voices, and it can help clean up the signal a bit, if you're in a room that has low-hum sounds, or maybe soften up the harshest/lowest plosives.

Easy recommend for either male or female voice!

Insane value for money
MrTesla, 11.06.2019
You can record anything with this mic. The high frequencies can be a bit harsh on some sources, but other than that, it's insane. The LPF and Pad switches in the front is a bit too sensitive, but the pop filter, the shock mount, the mic; you can't really go wrong with this purchase. I have recorded drums, a kick out, vocals, acoustic guitar, saxophone; literally anything works
