I found this microphone to be the perfect choice for my singing. quality of recording is nothing like the other ones I had, where they only pick up the high frequencies and leave the bass out, resulting in a trebly sound like if I was overhearing someone with earphones on the bus.

This microphone is of a superior quality to the cheap dynamic microphones range, and it's calibrated for close singing, so it wont pick up anything else than what is being played/sang directly close to the mic. No more background music being caught. Obviously, at very high background noise/volume, it does pick up something, but it's not a significant problem. And this is only if you are recording in a noisy room.

The plus for me is being able to scream in this microphone without distorting the recording. It really is one little wonder. Plus, it feels heavy and robust enough to give you the feeling of a high-quality microphone.

Very very pleased. I bought a second one, and I'll be using them for rehearsal (i'm in a rock band)

For the best part of £18 this is a very good purchase. The microphone feels substantial and weighty in the hand thanks to the zinc casing body. The supplied XLR lead and larger adaptor for amps etc. are both gold-plated.

Why not 5 stars? The few niggles are the fact that the repair warranty only applies to the U.S. (although all electrical items sold here have a 1 year warranty by law, I think), and the XLR connector doesn't quite sit flush with the base of the microphone, making you think that you have to keep pushing it in. You don't, it clicks in quite securely and even with the release catch dperessed it takes a definite pull to come out again.

I also noticed that for normal voice recording (conversational levels / podcasting) it needs to be held very close. Whether this is because the mic is internally 'set up' for louder signing or, as I suspect, my laptop's sound card levels aren't up to the job - I don't know.

That said, singing and loud volumes are handled no problem and with very good quality. You really have to shout in order to force some distortion into the signal, carried incidentally by an oxygen-free copper lead made of nice flexible plastic. Not like the stiffer plastic which never looses its bundled folds.

I may actually have to buy myself a good external sound card to match the quality of the microphone!

Bought this due to the 'superior vocal mic' tagline but eventually felt a bit suckered . I used it for some vocal recordings and it's O.K, but 'superior' ? Only superior to the cheapest tackiest microphones in reality , due to the fact that its so called 'superiority' takes the form of the gimmicky 'absolute vocal effect' which is basically an in built 'semi-phaser' that makes your voice sound like it's been put through a mild FX box and consequently seems to rob the recordings of clarity . There is also no option to switch this effect off . As I said before it's O.K but I'll probably be opting for a more standard model if I re-invest.

There isn't really much to say except that this microphone appears to be worth at least twice the price. I use it as a rehearsal mike so it won't be subject to a lot of bashing about but it appears strong and roubust enough to take to gigs. I am about to order another one!

For the price; this is an exceptional microphone. I use it on my Boss CD recording portastudio. I had the recording level right up and it did not distort. A good full-bodied sound. No more tinny sounding me!

Bought for a church installation this mic is crisp and clear and performs as well as many of it's more expensive competitors. It reacts well to both spoken and sung words. Great value for money.
