Brilliant value for money, flakey usb cable
Rowland Straylight 19.06.2020
I bought some of these as cheap USB mics for video calls and recording youtube videos in very basic studios. My mum has one and the other is on loan.

They are NOT large diaphram condensers, they are a small condenser in a large case. Still, they have a much larger capsule than you'd find in your webcam and the sound is very full and balanced.

I think my mum described it best as "that sounds like you rather than you on the telephone or you pretending to read the news" I think i should clarify that some as I tend to use whatever studio mic i have to hand when I make a youtube or a videocall and tend to have a very radio shock-jock or newsreader sound set up, it's very clear but it's also a "sound" rather than natural me. I'm not trying to say this is an AT4035, U87, or something I'd use to record a singer but it's not particularly flavoured either.

It's only 16 bit, which is enough for video call purposes, and it can do 44.1 and 48kHz but no better.

I wish it had an internal preamp booster, as it can be a bit quiet at times, easy enough to sort but sometimes required a bit of lateral thinking and it's maybe a a bit quiet used unprocessed.

But it's riduculously cheap and absolutely slays the competition at this price.

Basic but reliable
Filip Jandus 18.02.2022
This is very basic microphone. Best for some chats, you can record music too but the quality is about 5-7 of 10.
I use it for recording my brass instruments and it always sounds quite fade. Regardless that I enjoyed lot of fun and definitely made a progress.
If you need to check how few voices sound together this will 100% do enough. I wouldn't recomend it for public records though.

Not compatible with Apple Mac mini
Wakado 22.05.2020
I connected the Fun Generation USB One mic directly to a USB port on my Apple Mac mini to use for Zoom calls. Whenever I spoke the unit caused a low-level distorted echo that matched my speech pattern immediately after I had finished speaking. When I replaced the Fun Generation USB One mic with a Zoom H2-configured as a USB mic, everything worked fine so the incompatibility issue is with the Fun Generation USB One mic.
Apple Mac running OS 10.15.4

Pros: RMA raised without any problem so very happy with support from Thomann
Cons: I have to find a USB mic that works as I need the H2 for another task.
