Reviews around value (4.49 of 5)

  • This is a good value mic, one of the best XLR mics you can get for under $100
  • Not that big of a deal, and the value is still excellent.
  • I think the value here is in the extreme and I highly recommend it.
  • It's a good value, but with this track record, I won't be buying another.
  • I would not use it in a location with a high level of background noise as it is omni-directional and picks up quite a lot of extra noise.

Reviews around sound (4.47 of 5)

  • It doesn't make my vocals sound better (it's not magic), and I'm still learning how to use it properly, but I'm very happy with this microphone, especially for the price.
  • I keep my mic in there now and ever since it has worked great, perfect sound
  • The mic sounded "thin" with vocals and it really didn't like the thump of a nearby upright bass... resulting in a low frequency hum that I finally was able to eq out... to the disadvantage of the vocals
  • The sound of the mic is great but after a few times of recording the mic didn't work anymore
  • This is the perfect entry level mic for studio recording, the sound is crisp and clear.

Reviews around product (4.27 of 5)

  • This mic is a fantastic product for novice, or professionals alike
  • and when i turn on the switch it is noise free, great product for the price.
  • The MXL 770 (this product) is just far worse than the MXL-V67I, I am mostly writing this review to highly recommend you save up a little more cash and get the MXL-V67I instead -- even though it crapped out on me after a couple years
  • I must say this was my first buy from amazon, trust me this condenser microphone is brilliant, and high standard product, works great with my MAC and garageband

Reviews around background noise (1.00 of 5)

  • Decent at taking care of some minor background noise, but very accurate at pickup overall
  • Also, being a cardiod microphone, this does pick up background noise

  • The GXL sounds nicer in general, but it picks up so much background noise, that it's hard to tell how good it sounds
  • is that, this microphone picks up lot of background noise even at 75% gain level (maybe it's because of my
