From the product reviews, it seems like if you buy this microphone you run the risk of getting a unit which suffers from the effects of poor manufacturing or QC. That is clearly the case with the one I bought. If I turn the gain up to reasonable recording levels I get an incredibly loud hum which ruins any potential recording.
I have tried the mic connected to a mixer that provides phantom power as well as with a seperate, isolated phantom power unit and had exactly the same effect when connecting to my interface. I am not going to waste time post-processing to try and recover any audio. I am just going to save up and buy a better mic (and that is what you should do too).
I don't suppose I can really complain too much. After all, it is a c. £40 condenser mic. You pays your money and you takes your choice...
