Convenient but not studio quality
Andrew72, 30.07.2013
I should state that I bought this mic for recording music and not for podcasting or skype. The mic itself isn't that bad and is ok for live audio performances but it lacks the punch of other dynamic mics and the treble region lacks clarity and sparkle. I have used it to record guitar amps which gave pretty good results although I used the XLR output and ran it through an interface with a preamp. Recording via the USB connection into a soundcard does not give as good results, especially with the cable included in the box which is quite short which means the mic is close enough to the computer to pick up interference from the hard drive.

This mic is great for quick and easy recording but the sound quality leaves a lot to be desired. It is well built and can take a lot of wear so it is useful for a backup mic for a gigging band but the sound is not good enough for the lead vocalist.

for the price you can do worse.
Glen B., 03.06.2013
This was the first microphone I bought with the intention of using it for podcasting.

With a little EQ I was able to get a very natural sound with this mic. Any criticisms I would have of the mic would be that the sensitivity is quite low and amplifying the signal afterwards was amplifying unwanted noise. That said, I did many recordings with it after experimenting with distance from the mic which were perfectly acceptable and I even recorded a 45 min CD with the acoustic guitar using only this mic. Sure it didn't sound out of this world, but it was quite acceptable.

Having the built in USB is great, but the mic really comes alive using the XLR out and a decent pre-amp.

For this kind of money, you could do a lot worse.

Hybrid value for money everyday mic for mix use
Tropeas, 14.03.2020
Perfect mic for first radio or vocal recordings. It can be used as a single unit with the USB and as a member with others with the XLR connected in a mic mixer. I gave 4 instead of 5 because the next generation model (Plus) have also great features together with on-off, headphones mini jack and volume control!

Does the job
13.08.2015
Í have little to no knowledge about microphones and recording but bought this to use with my Mac and Garage Band for recording acoustic guitar and vocal takes. It works a treat. I have used it for live performances a few times also as it has a USB port as well as a regular XLR which makes it very versatile.

I am completely satisfied with the t.boine MB88U
