I'm using this for video audio recording indoors in a semi-dampened room, on a Roycotte table shockmount going into a camera-mounted Sony K2M. The shotgun that came with the K2M was sounding too wet.

Great value mic - nice sound, low noise. I listened to the Sennheiser MKH 8050, Schoeps CMC641 and this on youtube ( honestly preferred the sound of this. Sure, I'd much prefer the beautiful wooden case of the Schoeps, to the cheap vinyl case this comes in - but if it doesn't sound better to my ear, I can't really justify the extra. I'd love to try them all with my own voice, but didn't have time & couldn't find this mic for sale in the UK anyway.

To be honest, it sounds a lot better closer to the talent, than I have it. I don't know if the Schoeps or Sennheiser would solve that problem, but it's definitely good enough for now.

Nice that you can change the capsules too if you need a different pickup pattern, just a shame that cardioid and omni are the only options - I'd really like a super cardioid...

Suitable for Indoor Voice Booming

Michael7816, 25.03.2015
Since indoor booming for filmproductions always to Hypernieren microphones and is not recommended by Shotgun microphones with superniere, I had the Audio-Technica AT 4053B ordered. Reviews on American Forenseiten and Youtube According to it should produce good results, well-suppressed background noise and produce a pleasant voice-presence. I can agree with these things down to the repression of the hall. The Dynamic Range of the voice was much better than the Rode NTG-3 (Superniere) and the Rode Lavalier (Omni). Compared to the Audix SCX1-HC (Hyperniere) it was more sensitive and sounded less glaring.

Therefore purchase recommendation.
