Absolutely great microphone on a budget
O B , 29.03.2020
I bought this microphone after considering a few other equivalent makes and models in the same price range, and have no regrets. It is a work horse, has a versatile flat sound, without adding colouring which makes it a great baseline to shape while mixing. Highly recommended!

Great value
02.10.2014
Was fortunate to get a loan of a few mics from a studio (SM7b, C1000, etc.) and this was way ahead of the rest in terms of a smooth sound. I wanted something versatile and this has worked extremely well on vocals, violins and guitars so far.

Jason S Thompson , 25.01.2020
Love this mic. It seems to have a better and warmer range than some of my other mics for Voice Overs, and it's become one of my standard mics for everyday usage.

Perfect
Daniyar, 15.12.2017
Perfect microphone for recording voice and vocals. It has high a top and a low. In it I like everything absolutely. There is very little money for such sound quality. I advise you to buy and not to think.
