  • The sound quality is very good for the price, the visual aesthetics are decent, and the built in ministand is good for using it on the go.
  • Amazing sounding mic and well built but without there 5$ app you have to buy that gives sound canceling there is a LOT of background noise even in a silent room.
  • It's really well built and seems like it'll last a long time

Reviews around size (4.61 of 5)

  • I was attracted to this mic by its good looks and compact size.
  • It's an attractive (some would say "cute") little mic with its quaint "retro" design and deceptively fold-up, portable size.
  • It has a heavy, solid feel and folds up to a little fist-sized nugget of metal
  • I love the size of a microphone as well as the clear audio that he mic produces.
  • Great microphone for podcasts, especially given its compact size and low price despite the high quality.

Reviews around sound (4.32 of 5)

  • This mic had clear crisp sound on a Mac using Garageband
  • It also makes my headset sound great when I use it to listen to videos online, my cheap headphones sounds like a professional pair with it hooked into the microphone
  • Being stuck with cardioid will probably limit its use for conversation style podcasting among several people using one microphone, but you might manage a two person conversation if you raise the levels enough (watch out for distortion and unwanted sound though).If you can get it for a sweet
  • It has great sound for all my videoconferencing and voice recording needs.

Reviews around leg (4.28 of 5)

  • The adjustable legs work well to adjust the microphone to the correct angle for perfect reception
  • It's an ergonomic marvel with the compact, folding, adjustable legs and puts out excellent sound quality.
  • The design is also very practical as it is easy to collapse the legs and store or carry
  • The only issue is that the legs are a little loose, and the headphone jack is way too tight, but otherwise it works wonderfully!
  • The legs hold their position well without being too difficult to adjust.-Mute button is very handy which can be overlooked on a lot of other mics in this price range

Reviews around feedback (2.54 of 5)

  • 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.
  • The way it interfaces with my P C is great, the trick is "reading the instructions which came in the box
  • 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 feedback can be a bit high at times but if you can work through that, I recommend this mic for anyone who does podcasts or recorded interviews on the go.
  • 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
