Almost good with some problems
Jugi, 13.03.2020
Sound is ok, you need to be very close to it for it to pick up any sound, and still you need to have it maxed out in OS and software settings.

If put firmly in it's own holder it sometimes gets some interference (constant low pitched sound), this doesn't happen if held in the stand loosely.

Other than that, you get what you pay for.

A great bit of kit
asaguda, 10.10.2015
I'll preface this review by saying I am pretty much in love with this. I had a Blue Snowball before this one, but on account of wanting a boom since my Snowball setup was awkward, I decided to look for something new.

Enter this microphone. The SC 440 sounds a little warmer and thus more natural in tone than the Snowball, and costs less. It also comes with a moulded, padded case with an anti-vibration mount for no extra cost, when some others charge a fortune for such a thing.

It's solid and heavy, feels well built, is all metal (Though you wouldn't want to drop it, as with any condenser mic) and has served me since January this year. It only has a single mode, that being Cardioid, but at the price this is no concern. In fact, for the price, this is a very, VERY good sounding microphone. And it's USB, so you just plug it in, tweak the volume and off you go.

I have a rather noisy computer, with multiple case fans working at all times, which the mic obviously picks up. But with proper position, I can get it quiet enough where most people phase it out in moments over Skype and no longer notice. Also, voice chat via something like Discord or Teamspeak, that has noise reduction, sounds crystal clear.

I haven't had a single issue with this mic as of yet, and therefore I consider this an absolutely amazing piece of kit for the price. For people like me who want a little extra oomph in their voice chat, streams, games, videos or podcasts, this does the trick and it doesn't break the bank.

Brilliant Mic
AndrewHamilton, 08.01.2020
Can not fault this mic. Total plug in and play. I record vocals and guitar with it and am so happy with the sound. I've even been complemented by upscale producers for the vocal sound when I send them out my tracks.

Hint: Get a pop filter with it as it will be needed when recording vocals. It's very senstitive.
