  1. RedDogRiz

    Worked like a charm!!Used this to allow a remote poker player join a group of 7 other guys. Worked perfectly to pick up the entire room flawlessly. Highly recommend.

    Great USB-C Mic for Android cell phones and tabletsI have found that this is a perfect component for a transcription setup that the hard of hearing and deaf find very helpful. We initially deployed this at work for one of my deaf employees and I deployed one in my personal life for my father-in-law who had lost his hearing. By using an android tablet with a USB-C connector, and connecting this mic, I was able to use the Google transcription app to provide a running dialogue of things happening around them both. The microphones on cell phones and tablets are horrible if we’re all honest, this made the setup useful. I would easily recommend this to anyone needing a usb-c mic.

    Needs gain boost for conference roomWorks great. For a conference room application it’s not very loud on default settings. Had to go to windows sound settings and turn on automatic gain control (AGC) to boost it. After that it did much better.

    Fake product, do not buySince the cost of delivery and return would be more than the product itself I decided to keep it and open up to see what’s wrong with the thing. Apparently this microphone has nothing to do with Audio Technica and boundary layer design whatsoever. It has a 1/4″ cheap cardioid capsule sticking out vertically from the circuit board and no boundary plate. It is noisy, low sensitivity (no pickup beyond 3′) and grabs all possible rumble and hum. Internal design suggests that some OEM parts were used in assembly but there is too many missing pieces. This is just a “pretend like” a real product, definitely not worth the money. It should cost 5 times less, just a toy.

    Works fine , with good clarity, 0 disconnectit is working great without any fuss, kept below my monitor about a hands distance . This is for regular office use, as the laptop microphone replacement.

    Okay when combined with software app noise cancellationIt’s a decent microphone from the many others I tested and returned back. This mic is very sensitive and catches sounds from far, noise cancellation is very poor though. But when combined with the recent noise suppression feature from Microsoft Teams, it’s working very well for my WFH meetings

    Terrible sorely disappointed. Can’t return, only replaced.The media could not be loaded.

     I bought it, reading the reviews. Don’t know if mine is defective… I can’t choose zero stars… Worst gadget of audio technica. Actually very small, Matchbox sized. Very poor pickup. Have to be very close to it… And guys, it can only be replaced, not returned… Total waste so far. Awaiting the replacement, will see… Hoping for the best…
