A great bit of kit

asaguda, 10.10.2015
I'll preface this review by saying I am pretty much in love with this. I had a Blue Snowball before this one, but on account of wanting a boom since my Snowball setup was awkward, I decided to look for something new.

Enter this microphone. The SC 440 sounds a little warmer and thus more natural in tone than the Snowball, and costs less. It also comes with a moulded, padded case with an anti-vibration mount for no extra cost, when some others charge a fortune for such a thing.

It's solid and heavy, feels well built, is all metal (Though you wouldn't want to drop it, as with any condenser mic) and has served me since January this year. It only has a single mode, that being Cardioid, but at the price this is no concern. In fact, for the price, this is a very, VERY good sounding microphone. And it's USB, so you just plug it in, tweak the volume and off you go.

I have a rather noisy computer, with multiple case fans working at all times, which the mic obviously picks up. But with proper position, I can get it quiet enough where most people phase it out in moments over Skype and no longer notice. Also, voice chat via something like Discord or Teamspeak, that has noise reduction, sounds crystal clear.

I haven't had a single issue with this mic as of yet, and therefore I consider this an absolutely amazing piece of kit for the price. For people like me who want a little extra oomph in their voice chat, streams, games, videos or podcasts, this does the trick and it doesn't break the bank.

Overall great mic for starters

Soma328, 28.03.2018
I bought this mic 2 years ago in a bundle, I use it at home, for recording vocals, guitar, bass, flute and other instruments, also for making youtube videos and streaming on twitch. I really like the warm sound it gives to my voice. The large condenser capsule fits really nice for vocals, and stringed instruments.

It`s really cheap. You get exactly what you need for starting a youtube channel or a podcast or if you want to get in music production.
The build quality is excellent. It`s made out of a durable aluminium, the capsule is protected by a strong aluminium mesh. It fell once or twice but it survived perfectly without any damage in the electronics or on the outside.
It`s an USB microphone, plug and play, so no drivers needed, but you can install ASIO drivers for low-latency monitoring.
I use it in Audition and Ableton live, it simply works.
I really like the sound it produces, and it looks and feels professional.

There is a little bit of hissing going on, but i think it`s the drawback of the condenser mics overall not just this model. You can easily remove the noise by recording a few seconds of silence, and then running a noise reduction in Audition or even in a free program called Audacity. If you plan on recording multiple instrumens and vocals, you could remove the hissing in an equalizer, just turn down the 50-60Hz frequency where the hissing is going on.

Overall I really like this mic, it`s the best for this price!
