Very good sound except USB hum
GBonne, 21.02.2019
This is my first large membrane microphone. Meanwhile I had others and time to evaluate objectively this one.
The voice reproduction is great, this is not cheap quality in that regard, i.e. the microphone part (I would recommend the XLR version in that regard). Also the build quality is solid and all metal.

However there is one major issue, without the padding on there is a clear USB 1kHz noise (plus some harmonics in a lesser amount). I tried many things found on the internet, including swapping a USB HUB polarity of the power, pluging direct to PC, inserting a USB to USB isolator, it made no difference.
So for my voice-overs, I was post processing the noise out of it which in turn inevitably affected the voice quality in some amount.

But, for noisy environments, where the padding filter is applied, the microphone close to the sound source (mouth, amp-speaker, instrument,...) it will do just fine. Or also for PC streamers that want a simple plug and play solution without additional hardware and have other noise from intense games etc... Then this mike is perfectly fine.

Mine is now resting in its great enclosure (the box and accessories area great though).

So because of the USB noise it lost its stars but the same without noise would have been a 5 star for sure (go for the XLR version). Great value for money considering the amount of accessories (that are of top quality) and main voice sound quality!

Great Microphone for Discord
Hootsman , 26.03.2019
Bought this microphone to use when playing video games and chatting with friends on discord. I use a mechanical keyboard and by tweaking some of the settings I'm able to easily remove the audible clicky background sound from the keys for the most part. Quality is excellent but there's no additional software that comes with this mic so the main control you'll have over this is via the sensitivity wheel on the mic itself and whatever features your OS provides.
Pros:
Excellent sound
Excellent case for portability
Is good at ignoring most background sound that other mics I've had

Cons:
Lack of additional software.
