Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (15 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great hanging mic for recording"
Sound: Very transparent sound, very low self noise, plenty of output, quite diectional, overall sound quality compares with my Rode NT3 Feature: Comes in a small zipper bag, and a foam wind shield that is little loose on the mic Quality: Soild metal (zinc?) shell that provides good protection for the the mic element. Haven't used it for percussion Value: Great value for the money, compares to mics costing over twice as much Manufacturer Support: Haven't needed to use their customer service or warranty repair, just one sheet for the manual, no warranty card. The Wow Factor: A handy small condensor mic, has a quality look and feel, top unscrews to show high tech insides Overall: I bought a pair because I needed something small as hanging mics and require low self noise and directionality for recording purposes

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Amazing sound in such a little package..."
Overall: Well 1st off I was a little skepticle buying these but after a buddy of mine told me to get them as well as reading the other reviews I had to try them out. I purchased 3 of these and WOW was I surprised. I own already Shure and AudioTechnica Condenser mics very similar to these oh and Audix too and these CAD's were a 10th of the price and sounded just as good if not had better pick-up than my expensive mics. I couldn't believe it! They come with their own feux leather pouch and their own clip too which was nice but again, these baby's came out on top. My Audix and AudioTechnica's were overhead micing an 40 piece choir and I tried the 3 new CAD's on an 80 piece orchestra. OH MY GOD! the pick-up was absolutely perfect and not only did it pickup instruments 30 feet away it also picked up the surrounding instruments perfectly especially the way I strategically placed them. You can use these CAD's pretty much anywhere but be careful, they are VERY sensitive meaning they have the BEST pickup I have EVER seen AND used. Also, I EQ'd one of them specifically 25 feet away from the drum section and got so much bottom end I was blown away. I got compliments on the best it ever sounded, AND AND AND this gig was OUTDOORS so you know the challenges I was faced with AND it was a windy day (these mics come with a little wind booty too which was awesome). So my challenges went away specifically because of using these mics. I'm rating this very high but for the Manufacturer Support I'm going to rate in the middle because I havn't needed them thank god! Have to say the best I EVER used!!! Get yours today!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
