Remarkably Good Shotgun
20.02.2017
This is a surprisingly good mic for the price.

I've used it successfully in various live theatre productions and on-location video shootings. It does a great job in situations where more conventional supercardioid mics just aren't up to it.

I simply can't fault the transparency of its on-axis frequency response. Similarly the off-axis attenuation is very pronounced as mics go. Sensitivity is very good too.

Build quality is top notch, externally anyway. (I haven't dismantled it.)

The only negative thing I can find to say about it is the phasing of off-axis sound. You might want to avoid mixing any residual off-axis signal with audio from other mics.

You will pay many times the price for a better long-range shotgun mic. This is a great product.

Good, but long
Baobab Produkcija, 09.05.2019
It's a very good shotgun for that price range, it sounds clear and the speech is comprehensible. I use it constantly for my work as a boom operator, it has not failed me yet.
Not to have only positive things to say it has two flaws the first one is that it has these small screws that are very flimsy and come off easily, this can be fixed simply by carrying a small screwdriver. It's not a big issue, but it is something that you have to consider when working with em9900.
The other thing is its length, which I personally like but it is harder to find deadcat for it, and I had to get a blimp with an extension.
The last point could be because of my ignorance and lack of search knowledge, but It is also something someone may consider when buying this microphone.
All and all a very good mic for working on films, series or something.
Good luck

Well worth the money!
David4019, 03.01.2014
I was surprised how good this mic is. The self noise is very low, comparable to Mics costing £200 more than this one. The low end is very good, I think I detect a slight loss of mid range clarity, but it is more than adequate for my needs. I bought this as a back up for a Pro HD NXCam, and find that it provides a good signal without having to turn the Gain right up.
I might add than I am one of those irratating people that is not easily pleased, but I can honestly say that I don't know of a similar mic, with such good credentials!

Great Deal.
HCJ , 13.11.2020
I actually received one that had been slightly damaged in transit, and despite this, it's still a pretty decent quality microphone for a few different uses. Decent bass, decent range. I actually use it for podcasting and find it pretty well suited to the task.

Also, the issue of the slight damage was very well handled by customer service. :)
