Low-noise handling. Ideal for interviews in low-noise environments.
This is an omnidirectional reporter mic.
Build quality is excellent with all-metal handle and grill.
This is an omni mic so will pick up the ambient noise of the interview location. If you want to capture the room ambience whilst interviewing a person, this is a good feature. e.g. the atmosphere in a party when you're interviewing. However, if you're in a very noisy environment it will pick up everything around the subject and may interfere with the clarity of the dialogue. In this respect, a different mic e.g. cardiod dynamic reporter or shotgun mic might be more suitable.
There is very little physical handling noise, even when deliberately trying to create it. This is an important consideration if you're passing the mic around for other people to hold.
Sound quality is excellent.This is an omni mic and doesn't really suffer from the same type of bass/proximity effect of a dynamic cardiod when brought close to a person's mouth. For this reason, it's more forgiving in its response if people speak very close to the microphone head.
There is a 3-way switch on the mic handle. Off. Power test (red LED to show battery ok) and ON. The switch is recessed into the handle, so isn't easily knocked on or off.
The microphone handle is very long and is slightly textured for a good grip and low noise handling. It is long enough to allow a microphone flag to be placed on the handle. This still allows plenty of room to hold the microphone.
This mic requires internal batteries. It does not require external phantom power. There are no instructions provided on how to open the mic to insert batteries. I had to contact the manufacturer to ask how to do this as it wasn't obvious - I didn't want to make a mistake and break the microphone by removing screws or twisting something in the wrong direction. Once the manufacturer explained, it was easy. You have to unscrew the very end of the handle in an anticlockwise direction, but this is quite stiff for a new mic and so wasn't obvious.
