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.

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.
