First off, I am a Mic-aholic - secondly, I am a voiceover artist and produce radio adverts. I have a cupboard full of mics including Neumann, Rode, SE, Oktarva, Audio Technica, Sontronic, Sennheiser and more! I came across the Superlux S241 a few years ago and was very impressed with it for Acoustic Guitar it's still my go-to mic for micing guitars, so I thought I would give the superlux E205 a try especially at only £31.00 -once again Superlux has blown me away, it sounds fabulous and is dead quiet, even compared to a Rodes NT2a which is a very quiet mic indeed - and dare I say it, it has a nicer fuller sound than the Rode and doesn't have that U87Ai honk. one thing I will say is it is a little bit suspectable to the proximity effect, so keep back a little more than you normally would,
add a fraction of top EQ and you have one killer of a mic I would say it sounds similar to the Audio Technica 4033a.

All purpose mic
Bragi_Nevermore 25.11.2021
Excellent mic not just for price but for its diversity as well. I've used it on several instruments but the best results it gave me were for the vocals and acoustic guitars. I cant believe how well rounded and warm sound it has. Especially on, both male and female vox, I barely had to do any surgical or harsh EQ. Purchased this for the second time. Gifted the first one to my vocalist friend.
Comes with a leather pouch which is always nice to have. Superlux wins every time.
Needless to say, Thomann's service is top notch.

Cons: The mount is terrible. I would much rather they'd given a shock mount option than this plastic ring which broke on my first mic.

Good alternative for the money

I use this microphone for some general usage at my desk in my recording studio, including streaming and voiceover.

In general, this microphone does stand up to its comparison to the AT2020. In the years that have passed, this microphone has managed to pack that punch into a sub 50 euro package.

In sound specific terms, the microphone is mostly faithful in representing a voice. It's not a perfect reproduction, but it does not hugely deform your voice beyond comparison.
It does a good job at picking up the wide dynamic range of sounds that a room with reverb would produce.
The microphone's internal Phantom amplifier is of decent quality, requiring less than 12'o clock on my UMC204HD to get to full scale gain. At that point, I cannot detect a noise floor issue with the mic, and solely pick up the background noise in my room.

If you're to some extent fine with tweaking small parameters and have the capability to, this is a very viable and capable choice to consider.

For the price, this thing is amazing
Dan R. 27.11.2020
For €38,- you get a low noise, high output microphone that can hold it's own against mikes costing 10x that much. I couldn't believe it. It's not going to replace my Shure KSM 42, but for some things, it might be better.
