Like most home-studio engineers, I work with poor-quality acoustics. Because of this, I use small-diaphragm condensers a lot for vocals, largely because they tend to eliminate much of the unwanted room sound of my house. However, I felt I needed a large-diaphragm condenser for times when other rooms (elsewhere) may be available; but I was loathed to spend too much.
I picked this microphone because, again, it had impressive reviews for its price-point; and because it had switchable polar patterns. Most of the time, I will probably have it set to cardioid, but I am interested in trying out the Mid-Side Stereo technique, and the Figure-of-Eight pattern will be a must-have for that. This mic also has an omnidirectional pattern option, which may come in handy for use as a room mic, or maybe for crowd vocals - in a better room!
This is not going to give you the sound of an expensive studio microphone, but it will give you bags of options for very little money.
For the money this mic is being sold at, I think it is a very handy microphone with an omnidirectional, hypercardiod and figure of eight polar patterns. These polar patterns make this microphone an excellent choice for vocals and use as a room microphone. The LED phantom power indicator is very useful as it gives you a sense of direction when using the microphone and obviously lets you know that phantom power is enabled. I did however find that the threads on the bottom of the mic were a little bit awkward and squeeky, perhaps just in need of some use. Overall I think this is a very handy microphone to have around the studio for it's price.
