Beautiful microphone! The quality of both the device and the sound is great. Currently only used for YouTube and Twitch recording for which it might be a bit of overkill. If you plan on recording vocals and the like, this one is well worth the money!!!

Good microphone for a nice price

  • value for money
  • compact

A great microphone for podcasts and voiceovers. If you also want to be in the picture yourself, you have to choose whether to keep the microphone in the picture or to let the quality of sound deteriorate slightly. Depends on the type of microphone. Very nice and simple product with a good price / quality ratio

great sound

  • Great sound quality
  • Feels premium

To use it during computer use, an extra stand is almost necessary. Otherwise you have to bend towards the microphone all the time which is inconvenient to use while sitting in front of the computer.

I've had a lot of bad microphones before this. This one is a bit pricey but it is really good value for money.

The price-quality ratio is excellent

  • Plug & play
  • Listen back immediately

I'm using the microphone in the attic. Previously I had a huge problem with reverberation because it is a large open space. This microphone greatly limits this.

Good purchase, but also take an adjustable stand.

  • Nice anti-pop screen for it
  • accurate in recording
  • You should actually buy a standard right away for convenience

I should have ordered a stand with it, now it's a bit weird to bend towards the microphone. It also takes up a USB port, and together with a mouse and keyboard (wired) it already takes up 3 of the 4 ports.
