Good all around microphone
Valdemar TV, 16.08.2017
I use Superlux S241 as all-around mic for video production for couple of month.

It`s sensitivity is good enough to record detail ambience.
Bulid in attenuator helps to avoid clipping on rock concerts etc.

Thanks to massive brass made body the handling noise is low, which gives
possibility to use this mic as handheld interview microphone.
Integrated high-pass filter reduses the unnesessary low-end tones
(under the human voice), which is good for interview.

Mic itsself, shock mount, pop-filter and wind shield are nicely paked in foam
padded small plastic case.

The noise floor (at least in my very case) is not that low. I`ve made some "silent" tests
of S241 vs my two hyper cardioid Oktavas MK-012. The difference is notisable. Therefore I woudn`t use this mic for quiet night soundscapes. As for average situations it is absolutely OK.

High end (around 10 kHz) is bit too hot, (easy to fix in post if needed).

- Will I continue to use S241 for videoproduction?
- Sure.
- Will I use one as dialogue mic for movie?
- No.
- You can not afforde Soeps, DPA and other big brothers? Or, you`d like
to have good mic for very low price?
- Go for it, you`ll have no regreds.

Solid build, clear sound.
06.01.2015
I have 5 of these, two from Thomann and three I bought later from a UK retailer (because Thomanne was out of stock). I really like these mics, I'm not going to wax lyrical about the sound because I believe in being objective however I can safely say the noise-floor is extremely low, and the sound is supremely clear. Most of all they are built like a tank with super-thick steel walls and nice foam wind-cover. The pop-filter doesn't play nice with the mic-clip so you'll probably want to use one which clips onto the mic stand. Also worth noting is at some point you'll probably need to replace the rubber bands on the shock-mount as it's a tight fit on the mic and they get a little worn from sliding the mic in and out.

I have held this mic in my hand and also the Sontronics STC-10 which I suppose is its closest rival and the Sontronics feels so low quality in comparison, made from thin sheet steel and cheap switches.

I don't need the Superlux's rolloff and pad but they are recessed to avoid accidental switching so you'll need a pen to reach them.

Lastly they come in a little moulded plastic suitcase with foam insert for mics and accessories. Build quality is fine, I lug them about in my gear trunk no bother.

If you're thinking of it, just get it. They sound and feel like a lot more expensive mic.
