For the money it is good.
synthesist, 07.11.2019
This is a very natural sounding microphone. It is not phasey sounding, but it is not the softest in the world. It's sound is somewhat in the middle ground, able to handle just about any source. I bought it primarily for recording vocals that are a bit dull and lack presence. While sounding natural it has a very nice upper midrange lift that is a bit exciting, but not shrill, although on voices it is sibilant. The curve of the lift is natural and broad and overall it is leaning a bit to the brighter side, but in a musical way.
The quality seems top-notch and the shockmount is excellent. The included magnetic pop-filter won't really stop all of your plosives, but it works for softer things.
I would recommend this mic to anyone.

New benchmark
SGStudios, 13.01.2018
LCT 440 pure is a beautiful modern designed large diagram condenser microphone with impressive electronic circuit and wonderful sounding 1 inch capsule, which can also be found in Lewitt hi-end range of microphones.

The microphone features impressive specs with self noise of 7dB (A) and a sensitivity of 27.4mV/Pa which means it will not introduce any noise in the signal chain and you'll need less preamp gain. It is therefor suitable for recording quiet sources such as Foley.
On the other end, it can handle the SPL of 140 dB, so you can throw it in front of the loud guitar amp or drums without worrying it will distort.
Frequency response is very smooth, with little emphasis on the upper region, which generally help the sources cut through the mix.

The most impressive thing about this microphone is the sound it captures. It is very detailed and refined, with clear reproduction of sound source(s). It's neutral and true to the source, without coloration, but tuned to give a slight boost in high frequencies. It has nothing in similar with the nasty/piercing sound of the overly bright cheep condenser microphones.

I would highly recommend using this microphone for recording Speech, Vocals, Acoustic Instruments, Sound Effects and Foley.

Excellent Mic
Jibu, 04.08.2020
I was using the Rode NT1A and was not very happy with the results. With the help of Thomann staff, I opted for Lewitt LCT 440 Pure and the audio clarity is AMAZING. A very well built mic and its very compact, fits anywhere and I would definitely recommend this to anyone.. Lewitt could have added a XLR cable as well.

What can I say.... awesome
bassplayer26, 27.01.2019
I own this mic for couple of months now and I can say that this mic is just amazing. I've used it on acoustic, guitar amp, even on bass amp speaker for one occasion...and it delivers. build quality without a match, sound impressive, you can throw almost everything to this mic and it will deliver. And of course reasonable price. I'm just sad that I didnt bought LTC 441 with all the features...
