Great Microphone
oprs, 19.02.2018
Very easy to use simple plug and play couldn't be easier. Sounds great for the price, using it to talk to friends and record podcasts.
It feels nice and high quality, made from an aluminium body with a steel grill. Would have liked it to be in black instead of silver but can't always have everything.
The product comes with a USB cable about 3ish meters and a small little tripod. USB cable feels like it has some kind of shielding which is nice to see from a product that's not that expensive.
The product has a volume control on it which is nice to see and allows on the fly volume adjustments although on windows at least it doesn't seem to do very much, it's made of plastic that feels a bit cheap compared to the rest of the mic. Haven't recorded any singing or instrumental stuff on it yet but as it has a pretty good dynamic range don't think it will be a problem.
Overall a good mic, would recommend buying if you looking for a fairly inexpensive microphone for almost anything.

High quality budget microphone
21.02.2016
After 6 months of using this microphone I have to say that I had very few issues with it.

The quality of materials and design is excellent - it is a combination of metal a plastic, where the mic itself is mostly metal and the holder is partially plastic.

The quality is extremely good considering the price and that I use it in an enviromnent which is nowhere near any studio. I simply bought it for casual home use. Sometimes the microphone picks up a bit of extra noise, but I have found out that this is very much connected with the software I have been using and that the microphone sometimes does perform on the same setting differently within different applications. For example: there is o hearable noise in PowerDirector 12, yet in AudioDirector (same company) there is considerable amount of noise. There is very little noise when recording with OBS, yet there is a bit extra noise while using Screencast-o-Matic or some other web-based apps.

Overall I cannot but recommend this microphone. I was astonished when it first came and I am still astonished by its quality even after 6 months.

PS: I have been even travelling around with it and there is not even a scratch - the metal body is really solid.

Awesome
Pagon, 30.09.2017
Excellent audio quality for the price. The microfone is heavy and solid and also has a nice volume knob with a clicky button on it to hide it when not adjusting.
