On / Off button.
No coloration of the sound (do not even make a sound of scratching with).
Almost non-existent technology, if any.
What can I say? It gives you not even with the clip!


I use it for too long, may be 2 or 3 years with me (in the studio, I use the microphones prfre made available in the gnral SM58)

With effect pedals (Digitech Vocal 300), spent more, but it has not yet ...
I think this microphone is too sensitive: larsen death, kills his ear to be touched ds (Oufff, there is an ON / OFF). Also, I still have not figure out how much Russia make use of the effect of proximity ... trs pro not everything!
The rest of the trs (too) nature and "flat", but can be a force depending on the type of song.
Aside from its weight and its shell very hard to say "yes yes yes, it's a microphone!" I think we could almost compare it to my sister Barbie micro uses (almost).

However, if your beginners, the product is interesting for its price. I do not know much about the market but I think you will not find much better than a Shure 40s for 8700 euros.
Ds but when you have acquired a bit of vocal technique, including linking the operation of a microphone, you can not sing because of its carrying capacity.

I would put a small 4 becaufe the grid will not rust (you remember the SM 58) or not yet, and has an on / off button handy when feedback is to say all the time.
