Reviews around size (4.61 of 5)

Reviews around sound (4.32 of 5)

  • You'll obviously pick up unwanted sound and echo if you are in a sub-optimal room.
  • 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
  • This mic had clear crisp sound on a Mac using Garageband
  • I purchased this for travel, so that I can still podcast on the go and was expecting the sound to be OK, but not great given its size, but it's surprised me at every turn
  • Even when it DOES record, though, after praying it with contact cleaner, the recording sounds horrible

Reviews around leg (4.28 of 5)

  • 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
  • The adjustable legs work well to adjust the microphone to the correct angle for perfect reception
  • The adjustable legs work well to adjust the microphone to the correct angle for perfect reception

Reviews around background noise (1.49 of 5)

  • This was a great microphone for me for a few years but it LOVES background noise
  • Yet, at the same time, there seems to be very little background noise
  • There's a small LED to display when muting, as well as when the audio peaks
  • I'm not saying R2D2 is a sexy looking robot, but I really find this design really attractive for a microphone - very shiny!I really like how this microphone looks professional, yet it looks very hip/modern and sexy design
  • Unfortunately, this microphone picks up background noise better than my voice.

Reviews around people (1.38 of 5)

  • 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.
  • 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 may be jumping the gun a bit, having just bought it a week ago (and therefore knowing nothing about its durability, which some people seem concerned with), but this is a great mic
