We use to augment or existing mikes. We find that Omni mikes work better for voice output with shy audience users

HASH(0x9ef7a390) out of 5 stars Dependable and CHEAP! Nov. 7 2005
By William Hardin - Published on Amazon.com

So you must be in the market for a microphone if you are reading this. Depending on what you want out of a mic, this might be a great bargain choice. I recently tested 30+ of these Sony F-V100 Mics and every single one worked--nice and clean sounding in a streamlined lightweight package.

Pros:

Price (Under $10)

Dependable--very durable

Good audio quality

No on/off switch (less to break)

Lightweight (easy for kids to hold)

9.8 foot cord

Cons:

No on/off switch

Low volume for some uses

Mostly plastic build instead of metal

So if you are looking for an easy to use and durable mic on a budget, this should be exactly what you need. If you have requirements that do not amp the mic much, then you will need a more expensive mic.

HASH(0x9ef7a5b8) out of 5 stars Good for the $$ April 13 2010
By D.S. - Lancaster PA - Published on Amazon.com
Purchased one of these for use with students and inexpensive DV camcorders. Works fine - sounds ok. What do you want for $10?! Is it a pro-quality mic? No, of course not - but it sure sounds much better than the on-camera microphone. Works like a charm and for my wallet.

HASH(0x9ef7a69c) out of 5 stars poor quality, not even good to use as a toy! June 15 2010
By Simpson - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this to use as a second microphone for the kids' karaoke machine so two could sing together. I thought the "quality" of the sound wouldn't matter since I was just buying it to use it with my kids toy. Boy was I wrong. The kids fight over using the other one that came with the karaoke singing machine, which is far superior. This one is really a piece of crap and they can barely hear themselves singing when they use it. Don't buy it for any reason. It stinks!

HASH(0x9ef7ad80) out of 5 stars This is an OK mic for the price March 8 2010
By Mario Gozum - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this mic about 5 years ago to use on my 4-track recorder. It works fine. On vocals, it sounds a bit muddy, but what do you expect from a sub $[...] mic. Close mic'ing a guitar amp sounds decent. I actually got great sound, but that's my opinion.

As far as the other reviews, I'm not sure about the low gain problems. It could be their system. Since I used mine through a 4-track recorder, I had a different setting where I had to turn a knob in order for me to use a microphone. So really the main culprit could be the system where you plug in the mic.

The problem is the thing doesn't come with a manual so one would think it's plug and play. Clearly it's not.

If you're wondering how it sounds, you can listen to a few songs I did back in 2005 using this little mic. The guitars were mic'ed through the amplifier at about an inch away from the speakers. The amplifier volume was at 45% because I had neighbors and I was recording at night.

Here's the link:

Four of the songs used the Sony mic:
- Won't Go Away
- Homesick
- Make Me Crawl
- Spit In Your Lemon Lime

UPDATE: 03/16/10
Amazon did not allow my link so just go to [...] and look up artist Mario Gozum
