  • , it's a beautiful microphone, with legs that fold up and make it about the size of a goose egg, easy to transport in the bag that it came with
  • It has a heavy, solid feel and folds up to a little fist-sized nugget of metal

  • Even when it DOES record, though, after praying it with contact cleaner, the recording sounds horrible

Reviews around feedback (2.54 of 5)

  • Ordered this for recording both meetings with as well as for family to record music with and find this very functional and of a high quality construction and results.
  • I really love this desk mic, the only issue is if you are using a mechanical keyboard the feedback can be quite annoying to anyone on VOIP with you.
  • Great microphone quality over all, i keep getting horrible static/feedback when I plug in my Sennheiser HD518's into the microphone
  • Be warned to check your input and output volumes when using it, because it won't be automatically balanced, and you may run into some loud feedback
  • The only thing I've noticed is that I was getting really bad feedback sometimes, and I thought it was my USB ports, but I figured

  • Most people resolved the problem my RMA'ing it, refunding, what have you; I am going to get a a
  • Fans, dogs barking down the street, people in the other room
  • Seriously if you have a noise environment you're gonna drive people crazy unless you tone it down on the pc.
  • I ignored those people and got a cloud revolver, it would leak every bit of sound to the mic until I just couldn't take it anymore and got this, not a single regret other than not getting it sooner.
