It's worth its weight
Spike 350, 01.04.2019
I bought this mic primarily for home studio use and after working with it for just over a week i feel that i can be a little more thorough reviewing it. The quality of this mic has surprised me, i was expecting recordings to sound thin without any warmth or richness and this isn't the case at all. It compares favourably to mics that are ten times its price, it has a weight to it that exudes quality. It can be switched to any of 3 pick up patterns, has a low cut filter switch and a -10db attenuation switch also making it fully adjustable for most situations. If there is a negative it's that it doesn't come with a spider although one can be purchased to fit it. It comes with its own moulded plastic case which will keep it clean and safe if being transported. I think you'll be hard pressed to find anything on the market that will record audio of this quality for this price.

Love this mic
Al Santos, 07.03.2019
I was not expecting much, being a cheap mic, but I have got to concede that I am pretty impressed with how quiet it is, and how my voice sounds through it.
Love that It lets us use it as cardioid, figure of 8 and omni.
At this price level? I am going to keep it for a long time.

just get one of these, you'll use it a lot
Al 1, 19.05.2019
I just bought my 3rd one of these, which is probably enough on its own. The features (especially the versatility) and sound are far above its price range. The only "con" I've found after years of using this in all sorts of situations is that it's probably not the toughest mic around, but you'll have absolutely no problems if you take care of it (I destroyed 2 of them over the years but it was my fault on both occasions).

Great Value Mic For Your Money!
King Ninja Chris, 18.06.2013
I bought this microphone in order to begin recording a few demos from home, as well as for work on a solo album I'd intended on working on at the time, and considering the price I really wasn't expecting much at all, after previously having used the likes of Sennheiser and SE Electronics in the studio, however I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the product, featuring all the polar pattern switches and other goodies that I was used to on the more expensive large diaphragm condensers I've used (for example, the SE Electronics 2200a).
The sound quality from this mic is incredible for backing vocals and acoustic guitars considering it's price. I find that for lead vocals it sounds a bit thin, but a spot of editing in Pro Tools or double tracking usual fixes that problem.
The enclosure is sufficiently robust, I've had it for a year or two now, and it's still in pristine condition, though I doubt it would survive too much abuse if not looked after properly. I would (and have) recommend it to anybody looking to start recording from home, it's a really great mic for so few of your hard earned pennies!
