Do you hear me crystal clear.?

Before i had bought this product, I had read a few reviews and they all came back reasonably positive, But after receiving the product, I was amazed by its sound and build, this mic really is a cut above the rest for its price. It is really powerful on vocals, and on acoustic guitars it really brings out the tone, without even using any Eq, I will most certainly be investing in another two or three of these, They are amazing period.

A very good buy

This is an excellent microphone for its price.

This is currently used in a radio studio for recording voice tracks. When connected up to compressor etc it does sound much better.

The mic does give a very warm sound, which works very well with vocals and spoken word.

For the rather cheap price, it comes with a decent shock mount and a solid mount. The shock mount makes a world of difference, and allows us to move the mic around on its boom without the listeners hearing anything.

If you're looking for a good microphone that comes with good accessories, then this is the one for you.

I love this thing.

In my opinion this is one of the very best microphones I've encountered in my life so far. I used to work at a recording studio too, and it never failed to deliver amazing, natural, raw recordings. The closer to reality your recordings are, the better.

so, pros:
- good size, although i don't think that's very important.
- pretty looking, although, also, not very important.
- natural, raw, realistic, excellent quality sound.
-comes with a very sturdy and resistant looking (haven't tested how resistant it is and hope i never find out, haha) case to transport it or keep it safe and sound at home.

cons:
-mmm, i don't think i can think of anything.

Allrounder

I purchased it a few years ago as it was mentioned on several forums as a good platform for tweaking and customizing. Well I ended up actually using it "as is", maybe now I will finally have some free time to do the tweaks.
Using "as is" means putting it on men's vocals in front of a gospel choir on a quite loud stage. The included shock mount provided good noise isolation and I could get a decent beefy men's voice to the PA without much disturbance from drums and other instruments. I put it about 80cm-1m from the faces of the singers.
I also used it on some home demo recordings with quite usable results.
Anyway, I am not shy to use it here and there on different types of setups. Knowing it is quite cheap, I don't have to be too careful and can allow myself to experiment.
To finalize, I would say it is a good value for the price.
