Decent MicrophoneI bought two of these mics during some kind of mark-down sale for around $7 USD each. The first one I opened has something loose inside and I need to shake it for it to make a connection so that it functions. Due to the low cost, and not wanting the hassle of a return, I can’t say I care at all. That aside, I really didn’t have a lot of expectations for the mostly plastic unit. I bought it primarily to do “unrefined” impulse responses of my guitar speaker cabinet, and does it deliver in that area. In the center of the speaker, it gives me a pleasingly harsh tone that is definitely best suited to be blended with a darker, bassier IR. The far edge capture of the speaker also gives a kind of nasty deeper tone quality that can be blended with a brighter IR to round it out. Will these IRs impress most people? Probably not. But if you’re looking to experiment with different mics, this one is surely affordable and just may give you a result you weren’t expecting. I haven’t tried them with a voice or instrument, so I can’t be of much help there, but maybe they’ll be a good backup for you or provide an alternate sound that you weren’t initially looking for.Since these are mostly plastic, I wouldn’t expect it to be used on a stage or for any serious gigging musician. They do have an on/off switch which I wasn’t expecting. They are very light in weight and comfortable to hold. I’d expect your best results for these mics would be to place them in a stand and leave them there.

You get what you pay forI can’t complain about this product other than maybe a little bit of poor sound quality but honestly for the amount of money that is charged for this product. If anyone purchasing this should really not have a complaint. Overall it does what it is designed to do. What recommend for someone that just wants to attempt the use of this product with the idea that they’re not really spending much of anything.

ok sound quality BAD CONNECTION INSIDEi thought the first xlr cable it comes with was bad because of all the horrible static noise and how easily it broke so i got another cable and realized all the static is in the mics xlr input jack because it doesnt properly or snuggly fit the xlr cables
Cheap plastic mic with non-standard wiring.First problem is with the description. I should have read the comments from others. Of course for under $5 I didn’t (shouldn’t?) expect much — though did expect it to be metal. As noted by others, this is a cheap plastic body mic. The description says it has zinc alloy meal construction, it doesn’t in fact have any metal for in housing. As a result, it’s neither durable, solid feeling, and clearly not professional. While it does incorporate a “professional” 3-pin XLR connection, it’s not wired to the standard. It’ll work with the included cable but definitely will NOT work using a standard XLR mic cable connected to a standard input. Only pins 1 and 3 of this mic have connections. SOlved that problem by rewiring the connector in the mic. Moved the extremely thin wire from pin 1 to 2 and we’re good to go. Sadly, the cable can’t be modified because there is no socket in the #position — just a hole. If I need to use the cable now, I’ll have to swap out the XLR-F. So for reference, normally the signal would be between 2 and 3 with 1 as shield. Connecting it as shipped a standard input (mixer, amp. etc.) wouldn’t produce any signal — though if 48V phantom power was present (between 1 and 2-3 as is normal, it could damage/destroy the element… and remove any future need to be concerned about how cheesy it is. Doesn’t really look that bad, but it’s plastic.So how does it sound? Once rewired so I could plug into something I have, turns out it doesn’t sound that bad, though nothing I”ll probaly use. Weak on the low end, but s usable except for the fact it picks up a lot of noise just by holding it. Not a shock-mounted element, so vibration pickup from hand noise is a problem. Just as well it’s light on the low end or the handling noises would be even worse. Overall, a decent $4 mic.So not being happy, I tried to return it. While sold and shipped by Amazon, when I tried to return it using the online process, a “not eligible for return” message was displayed. A phone call resolved that issue. So while the mic is sub standard, Amazon’s customer service continues to be consistently great.
Good price to performance ratio.The media could not be loaded.
This microphone is a dynamic XLR microphone at an extremely affordable price. It does not sound quite as good as a Shure SM57, but it costs a WHOLE lot less. If you are looking for a “bang for the buck” microphone, you won’t find one better than this mic at this price point.

It good, but could be built betterSound quality is nice, I have no faults with that, the only issue with this is that the wiring in the detachable cable has some bad soldering and causes the wiring to twist into each other that causes it to short. Had to take it apart and resolder it for it to work, but other than that its alright.
