“Highly Recommend This Mic”

Update 3/10/16: Have used this on multiple shoots now and need to say that Im still quite impressed. This microphone picks up on the vocal range nicely, for almost any topic. I typically utilized plugged to a Tascam DR-05 and may pull great sound out of it, constantly. If anything it leans towards midtones and bass, but its easy to bring up the highs too.Original Review: I was surprised in the quality of the microphone. I purchased it without a ton of research since I needed something for a meeting and upcoming wedding. I paired it with the tascam DR-05 and it worked flawlessly. It has great sensitivity and generates very well-rounded sound for voice- bass although not muddled. Highly recommend. Just bear in mind that it requires plug in power…

“Enjoy This Small Mic! Well Built, And Sounds Excellent! ”

Ive purchased two of them so far, and will probably add more! I often use this mic into a Zoom H1, rather than messing with wireless transmitter/receiver setups, and that I just sync audio from post.Its very well constructed, and the only possible complaint would be the windscreen may come loose. In case you have any issues with the windscreen, I discovered these excellent replacements on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B017J3R2S8The replacement windscreens I ordered (link above) are a bit tight to get on, but once theyre on, they dont ever fall off.I such as the 90° 3.5mm plug. Its perfect for use with the Zoom H1 (or anything similar), since it doesnt stick out; which makes matters easier.The clip that comes with it is quite sturdy. I also purchased a RØDE vampire clip, but found out that the diameter on this mic is larger compared to RØDE, so bear that in mind when ordering accessories. Another reviewer commented on build quality, but I cant understand why. This is a strong mic, and I have had no issues with my first mic, and that’s why I ordered another one.

“Great Quality Mic For Your Money, Except For Windscreen”

I dont give out 5 stars unless something totally blows my mind. This lav mic didnt blow my mind, but Im very impressed with the results. I plugged this mic right into a Zoom H1 and with no configurations or post production tweaking I was getting great audio with very low noise levels.Only gripe so much with this mic is that the foam windscreen drops off really simple. Fell off during set up of my first two interviews but managed to find it on the ground.This morning that I had been walking out of the parking lot to some customers business and somehow the end screen fell off. Wasnt able to locate that, now I have to purchase one online that ideally matches.
