An acceptable entry level mic
TeamM, 05.02.2020
I purchased this microphone several years ago and still pull it out now and again for quick jobs where I'm not too bothered about the self noise the microphone produces.

It's a rather light mic as it's housing is made from aluminium which is great if you're attaching it to a cheap stand or mounting it on a camera (and don't want too much weight). For such a light microphone I always thought it would be easy to break but it's been dropped or has fallen with a stand a few times and still works without any noticeable difference. I personally usually a lot of my microphones for foley work. I usually grab this at times where there's potential for the mic to get damaged.

You can provide phantom power through batteries. This is great if you wanted to capture audio on something like a DSLR using a XLR to 3.5mm jack cable. I have two of these microphones. One of them I lent to a friend who used it for this exact purpose. He left the batteries he used within the microphone. By the time I had it back (probably about a week), everything inside the casing was covered in rust and the batteries themselves were leaking. I'm not sure if it was the batteries or the microphone at fault. Either way, the mic itself still works when providing phantom power through an XLR cable but I haven't tested either of them with batteries since.

If you're just getting into using mics and want this to record voice, certain types of instruments (I specifically thinking of a guitar from experience) or something like foley then this mic might not be bad to have.

You get what you pay for

For the price you pay for this mic, you simply can't expect too much. It is built quite well. You get a box and a cable for it.
Sound: it is OK, but quite noisy. It also requires quite some amount of gain which again amplifies the noise.
It is OK for interviews, but I wouldn't use it in studio. Just doesn't sound right for me. I used it couple of times for Hi Hat, but at the end never used the recording.

Excellent for the price
Fandersson, 11.08.2020
I've used one of these for two years to pick up sounds from a cricket pitch 60+ metres away. The mic is covered by a Røde WS6, which has kept it dry through all different kinds of rain thrown at it.

So, my needs are simple and lo-fi; to get the soundscape of the cricket pitch to a live stream.

Pros:
- Excellent pick-up for the price (heavily processed to coax out the relevant parts)
- Build quality is pretty good; the screw holding the business parts gave up only after two years of manhandling by people not accustomed to XLR cables.

Cons:
- The included mounting accessories are pretty useless. Consider getting proper ones at the same time with the mic.
- The off-wide-tele–switch slides easily to off during windshield installation. Nothing a bit of Gaffa won't fix, though.
- While the pick-up is good, the sound does reveal that the mic is not quite a high-end shotgun. Yes, you usually get what you pay for, but IMO the quality surpasses the expectations based on the price in this one.

Perfect mic for stage capture
Steve4081, 31.10.2014
Purchased to pick up the general audio, vocal sound on stage such as choir and or spoken word for productions and they are great. Very well built and they look far more expensive than they are. Supplied in a suitable box to keep them safe when not in use and a lead too. Well worth the buy!
