5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Mic! Best bang for your buck! July 12 2013
By Matthew
Verified Purchase
This is an awesome mic. Using it for recording vocals for rapping/singing. I'm currently recording on my computer desk with no acoustic treatment, yet it still sounds amazing. I have yet to wonder what it'll sound like with acoustic treatment. It picks up lows really well/bass of your voice. Recommend this mic to anyone who is starting out.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Mic is Fantastic March 17 2014
Verified Purchase
The only reason I didn't give this a 5 star review is because of the tripod attachment. The threads on the mic didn't seem to be very well defined and when I tried attaching the tripod it kept falling off. I had to use a resin to attach the tripod to the mic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. Jan. 1 2014
Verified Purchase
Great quality. Functions perfectly. Unfortunately, the software that controls the microphone also routes the speaker output through the headphone jack on the microphone. I have not found a way to change this so the speakers on the computer function instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great quality mic, horrible stand Dec 26 2013
Verified Purchase
Like most reviews, my biggest quip has to be the stand that comes with the mic. Without being too vulgar here, it's well, just cheap, like REALLY cheap, you could probably make something better from stuff around the house. I guess that's what you get when you get a mic as good as this for a cheap price, they had to skimp out on something. Other than the stand the mic was excellent, exceeded my expectations as a under $100 mic. I was expecting something okay, since it is from Audio Technica, but instead I was pretty blown away with the value of this product. It is on par if not better than the $100+ Blue Yeti mic most people buy for first time mic buyers. I use this for youtube commentaries and live streams and works perfectly, I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good quality mic without breaking the bank.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing and Bad Dec 5 2013
Verified Purchase
This mic has to be 100 times better than the blue yeti which is priced 100$ more than this product. The blue yeti seemed to distort my voice. This product is absolutely crystal clear. Now for the things that make it bad. The stand that comes with it is flimsy and detects vibration super easily and that causes pulse's to the mic causing a horrible noise. Secondly the cord it comes with barely fits into the input causing the computer to detect...then disconnect until you actually force it in, it then lasts maybe 3 seconds. I actually had to purchase my own cable which just seems like nonsense. So i would definitely recommend it, i myself actually just love it. But before having great success with it you need a shock mount and a new cord.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Clarity April 11 2014
First I would like to comment on the amazing clarity this mic offers. I do not feel I need a pop filter, there is no background noise at all and no distortion on my voice. Doing Google Voice or Skype calls is clearer than a land line telephone. Recording and video streaming sounds like professional studio quality.

As a note to the few bad reviewers complaining about static and background noise; you need to turn the mic volume down. Mine is about 12-18 inches from me and I have it set a 30%. At 100% it did not make it louder, it just seemed to increase the sensitivity, so it was picking up everything, especially computer case fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great mic, cheap stand. July 28 2014
Verified Purchase
The stand is horrible but the mic itself is great for the price, no hissing, clear sound, great for vocals or podcasting, I have recorded a full bluegrass band and it worked great, don't try to make this do things it is not meant to do, it's a lower end condenser, keep it simple and it will do wonders!
