The microphone is ideal for live stage, pod casting, home studio recording, field recording, voice over, film making and tons more! It’s super easy to connect to a computer or PA system. Just switch out the cables which are included. This microphone is great, even for just using to make your Skype calls sound better.

Don”t let the price fool you, as low as it is, doesn’t mean that you are getting a cheap mic. Believe me, this mic is as good if not better than ones like the blue snow ball and for a third of the price.

Handheld Dynamic Microphone

Let’s talk about this. How is it possible to have the capability to work for both situations. Well thats the beauty of this design.

XlR or USB, with just the switch of a cable you connect digitally or straight to the board. Compatible with windows and mac computers.

Recording on a laptop or computer

Look, this isn’t a nice condenser for recording big vocals. But it is about to give it a run for its money. The technology is well advanced for the price of the unit. My results from testing and reviewing are, this is a great solution for talking, overdubbing, podcast type of performance. Can you sing and make a great track with this, yeah probably.

The pros are the sounds is clear, great price, super easy to set you, all the cables are included and an awesome separate headphone jack for monitors.

Why is a headphone jack included?

If you’re familiar with recording on a computer, then you know that lag time is super annoying. If you can imagine a guitar track you laid down first and then go back and try and sing to, but the sound vs. the sound that is coming out of the headphones is off by 2 seconds, you will want to rip your hair out.

This mic, came up with a solution to that. It build a headphone jack right into the mic itself. Plug in and monitor without hearing and lag time! How awesome is that, usually you need a separate headphone amp to accomplish that.

So here it is, this mic sounds awesome, it works for pod casters connecting right into the computer without having a audio interface. It connects right to a pa too, so you can use it for that. It has a headphone amp built right in. This is probably the best workhorse microphone out there for a super cheap price.

I would highly recommended this mic to anyone who wanted to get a great sound for a great price. Most people I know who have bought this, also went and got two of them! Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!
