Value For Money : Correct Audience: Beginners
Everyone's first USB mic I guess, easy to use for podcasting, skype and gaming. Audio quality is rich and powerful with a nice proximity effect if you choose.
Serious podcasters still use it with great results, that requires good mic technique and some treatment to the room.
Pros are rich tone, ease of use and low cost.
Cons are significant. Mic is super sensitive to background sounds. Mic is well built but has weak points specifically jacks for USB connector.
I still have mine and use it once in a while for its rich tone.
BEWARE: The shock mount is 100% useless and will break immediately on set up, this is a well documented defect. Supposedly the newest version corrects for this, but they are still outrageously expensive, big and heavy. There are finally some aftermarket models that are cheap and work well.
