"Everything I need"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I'm a beginner to recording and I bought this voice primarily to do vocals and instruments and the sounds that come are crisp and clear on all settings. If your someone looking to do vocals this is your mic, if your doing a duet your mic, and instruments this is your mic. This is by far the most versatile mic at this price range and easy to use no cd, no drivers, just plug and play. The only downside i must say is the stand and no pop filter. The stand is sturdy but picks up alot of noise especially if on the same desk for editing. A filter is just a added bonus for clearer sound.

Top notch for 110$. Its of a very high quality almost studio level. When recording instruments its very clear and precise. Works with almost any style of music or just pod casting. Each setting allows for you or a friend to record either vocal or instrument or duet or even a group. I would recommend finding a stand for it and a filter.

Everything on this mic has a great use the gain allows for lowering and raising of input on the fly. The different patterns allow for various recording conditions. The mute functionality is very useful for stopping or pausing of sound more of a use on Skype when not recording. But I say the plastic buttons are a gripe like others don't know how sturdy they are yet.

Ease of Use
Very easy just plug and play and good to go on windows mac may be a different story read more but once your going your good to go!

It seems very sturdy mostly metal all except the buttons. I'd give this a long life expectancy with easy usage.

Every penny for what the price is.

The Wow Factor
8/10 Not the most amazing mic but it does wow you with what it can do and looks to its huge! A comparison would be 3/4 of a 2 liter bottle.
