  • Simple to use and records great sound. I use it to record podcasts and the multiple recording patterns are a godsend. I love this mic.
  • There are manual switches for both gain and recording patterns - stereo, omni, cardioid, and bi-directional.
  • I bought this to use in a school music classroom to record rehearsals. I have used it for choir and band and the recording quality is great. I have also used it to record solo piano and vocal music.
  • It’s a very sensitive microphone, it picks up a lot of low and mid frequencies.
  • Great all around sound quality for a USB mic. great low end response as well as speaking voice. I was very happy with the quality of the recordings it produced.
  • Amount of background noise and static detracts from what should be professional quality.
