Fajny, maly, poreczny, dobrze zbiera. Nie ma problemu z poppingiem, bo mozna mowic z wiekszej odleglosci i pod katem, poza tym ma metalowa siatke, ktora 'pop!' troche eliminuje. Ladnie zbiera tez dzwieki gitary, jak sie troche pobawic, mozna znalezc idealne polozenie, odleglosc itd. Kabla raczej nie zabraknie, jest dosc dlugi. Ladnie sie przypina do laptopa, podstawka jest ciezka, metalowa, spokojnie sobie stoi. Ma tez otwor i sruby, zeby mozna bylo nawet na jakims statywie zamocowac. Tryby dzialania (czyli czy zbiera z przodu, dookola itd.) mozna zmieniac. No po prostu piknie jest :) Polecam!
I bought this microphone mainly with the intention of recording the ocarina, as well as using it with Skype. Other microphones considered were the Samson Meteor, Blue Snowball and Blue Yeti.
Being a small condenser microphone - and at a low cost at that - I realized that the microphone might not be perfect for the job, but at the same time felt that I wouldn't be losing too much money if it wasn't up to my standards. A bunch of favorable reviews on the Internet helped me decide as well.
First of all, I heard a lot of reviewers saying it's small but I was still surprised when I unboxed it. It really is ridiculously small and will fit quite nicely on a laptop monitor.
Setup was easy on both Mac/OSX (Mavericks) and PC/Windows7 (64-bit). Simply plug the microphone into the USB port and if necessary select it as an input device.
It has 3 switches: cardiod, cardiod -10dB and omnidirectional. The first two are directional, meaning that they will focus on picking up sound in front of the microphone whereas the omnidirectional mode will pick up sound 360 degrees around the microphone.
It will pick up a lot of background noise, even in the -10dB cardiod mode (which I use all the time). Using it on Skype and facing me, the person I'm speaking to can still hear someone cough several rooms away in my apartment (which, admittedly, does not have a lot of fabric and cloth to pick up the noises).
The sound quality whilst recording is a whole lot better than the internal dual microphones on a Macbook Pro Retina, and it's also a whole lot better than any headset I tried recording with. The microphone will simply not be as overwhelmed by the high ocarina notes. The quality is however not perfect, and it will still take some skills in audio mixing (compression, equalizing, reverb and so on) to get it to sound as good as it can. To the microphones defense, audio mixing skills are probably necessary regardless of the microphone being used unless the recording is made in an ideal environment with a lot of sound dampening.
Compliments were given about the sound quality on Skype, with the recipients thinking that it was a more expensive microphone than it is.
For the price, it's easy to recommend it. If you want something that is significantly better, you might end up having to spend somewhere between 5 and 10 times as much.
