For the price... blew me away!
Findo, 15.05.2020
I picked up one of these mics just to see what it could do.. at this price, why not? I was really nicely surprised. On my voice, a bit of EQ had it sounding really nice (my main vocal mic is the fantastic Lewitt 440 Pure, which is clearly a superior mic), but on my acoustic guitar it sounded good out of the box - in fact, I'm probably going to use it on guitar all the time. I'm basically leaving it set up on my desk for recording ideas.
So, as a budget, beginner mic, this is a no-brainer, just get one.

Cheap, great microphone
Egemen, 26.03.2015
I bought this microphone for my home studio. I'm on a tight budget so I couldn't spend much besides, music is my hobby, not my profession so I do not need expensive gear. Anyway, after reading positive reviews both on Thomann's site and on other pages I decided to order this Superlux E205 microphone. I haven't tried it with any acoustic Instruments or with amplifiers, I have only recorded vocals with it. The result is more than satisfying. It is a very sensitive mic with a very good sound quality. After adding a bit of eq, recorded vocals sound wonderful. I certainly am very very happy with this microphone and suggest it to anyone on a tight budget for vocal recording.

I've been using the mic for recording vocals, some acoustic guitar and as a VOIP device while chatting/gaming with friends. Sounds great, is built great, doesn't cost that much. For my mixed use it was a great buy.

Versitile and Reliable
Daniel C, 06.06.2017
A great microphone for the price, and has great clarity. I find it lacks in higher frequencies, but works well for a male vocalist. Has a wide pickup range, so I usually use them as boundary microphones, however also very useful at close range. I have a set of 5, and some of the XLR connectors on the microphones are a bit stiff, and the screw-fitting on the underside that holds the microphone together comes loose with regular use, however is easily fixable. I am disappointment with the included microphone mounts, as several I've had are too stiff for hand tightening. I recommend getting their associated shock mounts instead of the included fittings, however a file and a bit of elbow grease can solve the issue easily.

Overall, great audio quality, but the hardware leaves a little to be desired. The front LED is a very nice touch.
