Good sound and construction

07.05.2014
Using with Windows 7 it plugged in and worked straight away with no fuss. It did produce some white noise of its own so I had to turn down the levels in Windows mic properties to 20%.
The PG42 USB produces a nice warm sound compared to my old dynamic mic (PG48) and this is evident using decent monitors or headphones. However, my old mic did have one feature that I wish the PG42 had - an on/off switch on the mic. I'd like to be able to switch it off at the mic when not in use without having to unplug the USB connection. It can, however, be muted in Windows using mic properties.

The included shock mount does the job well but I will have my eye on the rubber suspension bands as they might deteriorate over time.

Clear purchase recommendation!

17.11.2016
The best microphone so far, which I have bought in this price segment! The sound is clear, without background noise and the processing of the device itself is absolutely satisfactory! Also nice is that you do not need a pre-amp, but the Miko works directly on all USB-enabled laptops and computers. I used the micro under Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 and had no problems!
