Hi, I going to try to cover what was important to me and the questions I had when I was picking
out a new microphone.
I was looking for a microphone for gaming, skype and teamspeak.
I play a lot of competitive games such as Counter strike and World of tanks. I also play planetside 2 and others. If your a gamer and have questions, feel free to add me on steam: titanium_eye.
In features, this microphone is lacking, you can change the position of the microphone but only the Y axis, so it only goes up or down. One of the problems I had was there was no mute switch, which was a problem for me as I do need to mute my microphone occasionally. It was very easy to assemble, without need to read the manual.
Material + Build Quality:
The shell is made of only plastic, it is very light so some added weights would have been nice.
However the cable is very well fitted as I may have sucked it into my vacuum once, which I thought it would such have ripped or broke but it was fine. The base feels like they will snap easily.
Overall I feel the quality if cheap but for this price you can't really complain.
The voice quality isn't the best, but it will do for clear communications and it is very clear, there is no static or buzzing which was a relief. The quality is certainly better than the standard boom mic you get with gaming headsets.
Looks very slick with it's matte black, However I do wish the wire came from under the base.
For a cheap microphone, this will certainly meet the price, for any better you may simply need to buy a more expensive microphone, but this will certainly be more than I need as a gamer and the occasional commentary for youtube.
