The Antlion ModMic is a patented attachable boom microphone that can be attached to almost any set of headphones. Construction With an adjustable length and an innocuous shape, the Modmic fits easily on almost any pair of headphones. Using a 3M adhesive that doesn't leave any residue, simply stick the base onto a clean, flat spot on your headphones and you're all set. While a curved plane, rubberized surface, and more open mesh don't do you any favors, most headphones are fully compatible with the Modmic. Operation From there, just plug the mic into your audio jack and you're good to go. Able to handle left or right orientation, as sensitive as you need, and attached to that pair of headphones you already call home, the AntLion Modmic 4.0 solves all of your microphone headset needs without reframing the conversation. ModMic (version 4.0) Uni-directional The The Uni-directional capsule offers better noise-cancelling but does not have as much sensitivity as the Omni-directional. If you're going to be using your mic in a noisy environment, go with the Uni-directional. Microphone capsule specs: Pattern: Uni-directional Response: 100 Hz-10 kHz Sensitivity: -38 ± 3 dB SNR: >50+ dB Impedance: 2.2 K-ohms Max current at 2.0V: 500 µA Max input SPL: 110 dB
Background noise, white noise, or EMI, can come from a lot of places. The most common cause is from the electronics within the computer itself. There are several possible solutions to this.
Option 1: Try turning down any boost/mic gain. The lower your gain the less of this noise you will hear. You can compensate by moving the mic closer to (but not in front of) your mouth and ensuring that the mic icon on the tip of the boom just before the pop filter is facing your mouth.
Option 2: Get a USB adapter like ours. This will usually solve the problem by removing the mic input from the onboard audio.
Option 3: Get a dedicated DAC. If you want to really begin enhancing your audio experience, these can be expensive, but may improve both your mic and headphones.

But I feel it does a pretty good job, its a little bit of a stretch from the side of a Sennheiser hd650 to mouth but does get there.
I have been told that the quality isn't as good as what I had previously (rocat kave 5.1 hardware headset), so that's a little disappointing. However I have always been understood. The idea of a drop in quality might just be in their heads!
But the cable is pretty long, has a nice case and the magnets aren't too strong.
It's very well designed balanced and has a staging system on the magnet part so the mic spins around by 90 degrees at a time...so make sure you do attach the sticky part correctly first time.
One of the problems i had was with the wire itself, i didn't think it would bother me as much as it does but i really wish it was wireless as it just looks messy dangling down or if you use the clips to connect it to your headphones wire then it feels like it's weighing it down wich just feels odd. While this is annoying it hasn't stopped me from using it but i don't leave it connected as soon as i'm done i put it away.
Second problem is the way the mic attaches to the headphones it uses a magnet with 4 points on it, these points serve to stop the mic from moving around once attached. However i feel like there must be a better way to do this as once you attach the magnet to your headphone it is basically stuck there as once you take it of it is no longer sticky, now they do supply you with 2 magnets and 1 sticky pad to replace it if you mess up but even though i did all 3 i could not get the mic where i wanted (out of my view like all my old mics). I will include pictures of the way it attaches so you can get a better idea .
Overall its fine, The audio quality is great for this style of mic, so if you decide to get this mic make sure you will be okay with the problems i had
However, I regret buying the Uni-directional version as the sound quality is quite lacking. My voice sounds flat and lacks base, and during games people find it challenging to understand what I'm saying because of this.
Buy the Omni-directional version, and don't worry about it picking up outside sounds, as the sound quality for that version is much better.
I ordered the version with a mute switch also, but this mute switch simply doesn't work. Whether it's on or off, the mic picks up sound. I don't know how this is possible, but it's quite disappointing.
Overall the microphone is alright, as there is no real alternative for modular microphones.
Only downside really is having two cables (Mic. & your headphones) to worry about compared to a headset.
However I did spend more than £40 on my previous headset and that Mic. was terrible. I had been looking at headsets for a couple months but I got proper headphones for Christmas so treated myself to this Mic.
Overall 5 Stars :D
The only issue really is that it's not very senitive, so you'll need to max your mic output(i suppose I should have got the omni directional model).
I'm running mine through a SoundBlaster-Z dedicated sound card and have had no issues with noise or feedback.
Looks good and well made as well and also seems to be firmly attached to the mesh of the headphones although time will tell.
If I was being picky it would be nice to have more plastic clips but for my set up I didn't really need more.
