    The best low cost Mic for serious home studioAll I can say is that I regret not buying at least 2 more of these. The construction, material, features and quality of this Microphone are excellent and it meets the needs of my home studio where we record music (vocals and acoustic). We don’t use it for podcast but I am sure it would work wonders too.The price of this microphone in Dec 2022 was unbelievable and it was a sin not to buy it I would give it a 6th star on the Value for Money if I could

    The Budget Mic of MicsAfter searching through multiple websites I was referred by a few other artists in my area and others that this mic is great for a budget in home studio. Its ability to record in -20dB or regular is spectacular for recording louder vocalists as well as being able to hone in on the heavier parts of vocals. 10/10 would recommend

    AKG P120It’s a mic. It does it’s job. It makes my desk look cool.

  5. R Cagno

    Well constructed, works wellI picked this up at the height of the pandemic Zoom/Teams meetings run. It is well constructed and has great sound for what I want. So much better than the webcam mic. I think is was well worth the cost and have been very pleased with it. It allows me to appear much more professional in my virtual meetings. The sound quality can be more important than the video image. This gives you that quality. It does require 48v phantom power, so an audio interface that provides that is necessary.

    Sometimes too sensitiveSounds good but sometimes too sensitive

  7. Danilo Villalobos V.

  8. Steven nunez

    La mejor opción calidad precioYa lo habia probado en otro studio y aparte de los review que tienen en youtube sobre este micrófono, ahora decidi comprarlo para mi home studio porque si tiene muy buena calidad y por el precio pienso que lo vale realmente

  9. heidi Olivera oh

    Good but sorta quiet without preampIt has good quality sound and the -20 switch lowers the volume enough to use it for loud instruments like drums, saxophone ect. But it’s is sensitive enough to get decent vocals as well. I did notice while using a Scarlett solo, the volume wasn’t very high. You might consider a pre Amp with this mic

  10. Cristian Lopez

    Please Read!!Honestly I have had other mics and none compare to this one, I honestly thought I sucked but after buying this mic I realized it was my old mic that was trash and not me, I wish this was my first ever mic I bought!!!! I promise you this is the best for its price
