Amazon.ca:Customer reviews: USB Microphone Kit 192KHZ/24BIT with Aluminum Organizer Storage Case MAONO AU-A04TC PC Condenser Podcast Streaming Cardioid Mic Plug & Play for Computer, YouTube, Gaming Recording
Comes in a metal case and the microphone is carefully packed away in foam within the case. Taking the microphone out and assembling it was very easy and straight forward and the base of the microphone has a very good weight to it to ensure it doesn't move around on the desk or fall over.
Plug into my laptop and it is found immediately and used by my system. Plug & Play as advertised...Very cool. Did some test recordings both with and without the microphone and the difference is night and day. Using the laptop microphone has a lot of back ground noise and sound very distant. With this microphone, my voice is picked up very clearly and there is zero back ground noise, no noises from other areas of the room are picked up. Crisp and clear audio...Would recommend!!
I use this for podcast recording it has a solid stand good quality material. I watched other reviews that said it will pickup the smallest sound from the surrounding in my experience it is the exact opposite. It picks up my voice clear and not much of back noise. I like the metal case too, everything fit perfectly inside so in case you want to take your mic and stand to another place it’s clean and headache free.
I used this to record a song for a music video and it was super professional quality. I am impressed by the packaging and the easiness to use of this product. The microphone blocks all outside noise and also records super sharp and clear voice. It comes in a kit that is super easy to carry and isn't heavy at all. Overall, the packaging is super attractive and the quality and performance of the product is awesome.
