VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: When I acquired this product I expected something that could deal with (primarily) the recording of a pianist. I looked at the curves and felt dealing with it to be completely doable for a 25hz->22khz. At the time all I wanted something that I could tolerate listening to rather than the 2track recordings... so almost anything seemed better. For this purpose alone it is more than satisfactory, in either a sound dampened room or auditorium it sounds perfect (if you've got placement down.) Now for the better part... The artist I was recording also plays the pipe organ, and there happens to be a cathedral with one on campus. Now understand that this organ can run down to 16hz, and with the curve shown... I expected the microphones to perform poorly and be almost unable to reproduce the full breadth and pressure of the organ. I was wrong, these microphones performed admirably reproducing the sound of such a beast after minor tweaking of the low and high end with a 1024 channel digital equalizer. Feature: Don't expect the case to be like a pelican case; it's too small and just too tiny to carry around using the handle. Oh and don't tug on the foam unless you have a hot glue gun to put that foam back into place. The adapters are of pretty OK polymer construction, and I wouldn't expect to have problems with either for years. Ease of Use: Would have a 10 rating if it could record those TRULY deeper (Below 25hz) notes without me ever needing to touch an equalizer. If you're voice, piano, or guitar... it's all plug and play. Quality: Reliability is a factor that I can't really elaborate upon. I've given them pretty heavy use for the past month and a half, they're still pretty and happy (But I am pretty crazy when it comes to things with threads; thus I lubed up everything with a touch of rifle grease so I get no messy filings anywhere.) Value: I blew up my last condenser microphone... (Don't ask)... this set replaced it. I'm getting another pair for doing another project with the aforementioned individual. I am EXTREMELY happy about the price, especially where it sits in comparison to it's abilities. Manufacturer Support: I have not dealt with any MXL support representatives. The Wow Factor: It's 'affordable' for what it offers; and that's gonna be a turn off to anyone looking for "The Best". It's the front line of my recording, you want genius design? Try the fact that they're selling 2 microphones; each one easily comparable in sound reproduction to a different microphone that's priced at 80->150 dollars. Overall: I'll be satisfied with this product unless It prematurely dies (lets say under 5 years.) If it dies after that time and I'm still doing such things, but I'm not rich... I'll probably just get another set (If they still exist.) The same applies for any accidental damage, there really just is not a better deal out there. The only thing I wish I knew is that they can record sub 30hz... easily... don't worry about it if you have an equalizer that can boost it in the right places.

Overall: Exceptional value for the performance they provide. I use them for recording in my home studio, and they work as well as other brands costing twice the money. I will be adding another set for my studio.
