Solid buy
Just a customer, 20.01.2020
Out of the box, this mic feels surprisingly light, which was slightly disconcerting, but so far this has not posed any problems. All the switches are affirmative and secured correctly. So overall, no complaints. Seems to be solid.

Mainly I'm using this mic to record handheld percussion and acoustic guitars so far. It seems to me to give a very forward, present sound and works really nicely with some light compression. Noticeably more complimentary than other similar mics I have. (akg c1000 v1)

It also has really good side and rear rejection. This is the biggest bonus for me. Obviously important in untreated rooms, and live use. In the mix, you really hear whether the difference is. I seemingly have more detail apparent, and things sounds more polished before I apply any eq.

So a really nice mic in my drawer. No doubt after more time working with it and comparing to my other mics, I'll find things that it's weaker on and the others might do better. But all in all, a great mic. If you only have room/need/budget for 1 mic for recording. This will do you handsomely.

Now here's my only gripe, and hence the deduction of 1 star overall. I have no use for the 'air' feature. In my application, it just makes everything brittle sounding. I've only tried it on acoustic guitar. Without the air setting, fantastic. With it engaged, to my ears at any rate, it adds nothing I want.

So that said, I would still heartily recommend this mic. For some applications the Air setting must be good, indeed I've heard demos where it seems to add a lovely shimmer. But it's not something I'm using, but this does not put me off at all.

Lightweight, great sound, travels well
Steve Galloway, 04.08.2020
I ordered the Lewitt 140 Air on the basis of a review by producer and YouTube commentator Warren Huart to cope with a lute I needed to get good detail from in a live production. Neither Huart or Lewitt disappointed. The mic picked up fantastic frequency range and incredible detail from this string instrument in a large medieval church where we recorded accompanying vocals on other mics.

I have surprisingly used the Lewitt 140 Air out of desperation in an outdoor situation because every other mic I had on site was too heavy to risk on a boom, and despite some competition from well know mics for outdoor voice, the Lewitt trumped everything else. I don't know if I could do that again, but it saved a second trip to run the track again.

The machined aluminium case feels reassuringly solid despite the microphone's nominal weight and it feels like you could run over it with a car. I am not going to try that, but Lewitt has my attention and I think the Lewitt 140 Air competes with similar microphones that cost even three times its price. So glad to have it aboard.

The pop filter fits a little loosely and might be something that gets lost on the road, but I am not marking the microphone down for that.

Great little mic
Ruby Sound, 28.04.2020
This mic is tiny and weighs nothing but it looks great and sounds great. The 3 function switches make it a very versatile and useful mic. I bought it to record acoustic guitar and it does that beautifully, It also works great on guitar amps, snares, banjo and violin. I was originaly looking at a matched pair of LCT 040's or the Rode MP5's but went for this instead as for me this is the better choice because of its versatility.
