The MXL Genesis will provide you with a very clear and concise sound. Not to mention that its very stylish as well. The color tone of it is something that I am very fond of. I think it just looks great and seeing it set up in a studio makes it look even better. The look of it fits perfect with the sound quality that it provides, very rich and warm. It is a Tube condenser microphone and for the price of it you really cant expect to get too much more. Its not the best condenser mic on the market but its far from the worst. For the little investment that it cost you will get a good sounding mic and a great looking mic to sit right in your home.


I have had several friends who have used this mic and they really didn’t like it because they wanted a more realistic sound of it. But I feel for the money you pay for it you really cant expect to get something much better. It will provide you with a warm sound (not too sure why they would say other wise). The MXL Genesis has a 6 micron gold sputtered diaphragm with an output impedance of 200hms. It really performs well with more slow music than it does faster stuff. I think its perfect for ballad songs , but not so perfect for like a hip hop up tempo song. But you would have to try it out on your own voice to see just how it performs. You can always return it if you don’t like the way it sounds, but for right around 400-500 dollars you wont find to many other mics that will out look this one or out perform the Genesis. So if you want crisp hi’s and very solid bottom end recordings then the MXL Genesis could be for you.
