    Nice mic. Has potential

    Pros: Ambient noise is greatly reduced.
    Very snug windscreen (two are included).
    Soft carrying pouch.

    Cons: Slightly tinny sound to recorded voice.
    Really wish they made this with, or sold a version that had 90 degree 1/8" plug for better directional pickup.

    I used this with my iPhone 6. The volume of recorded voice is essentially the same as without a mic, although slightly tinny in tone.
    The best thing about this mic is how much ambient noise it filters out.
    I did my comparison using the voice recorder function in the iPhone. I hope to use it in a video recording after I make some modifications to it.
    As of now, I definitely think this is a worthwhile purchase.

    Sound OK!!! but did not last long

    Pros: - sound quality

    Cons: - 1/8 pin broke with normal use

    This microphone is an Improvement over the built-in Ipad microphone. I use it to record band practice and it makes the highs come through better than the built-in speaker and produces less distortion as well. Unfortunately , the 1/8 pin broke in the Ipad after less than 1 year of use (one a week or so). This hapenned when unplugging the microphone from the Ipad. A little disapointed by the quality of the connector..

    Cool little mic

    Pros: -small
    -around the plug, the cylinder gets smaller probably to help it work with cellphone cases
    -heavy for the size, feels like it is constructed well
    -very good sound quality for the price
    -totally worth the money for a toy to mess around with or a tool to use

    Cons: -small (could be easy to loose) but it comes with a little pouch that you should use

    I use this mic on my cell phone (nexus 5). It is much more sensitive then the standard cell mic. Very useful for recording video or just audio. I use it when I have an idea on guitar that I want to remember for later. I tested it for recording normal conversations and was very happy with it. Even though it cylinder gets smaller to help it fit into the phone even with a case, I had to ether take my case off or modify it (cut a little but out) in order to plug it in. This is to be expected though because most cases are designed to accommodate headphones and not microphones. 100% definitely would recommend

    Pros: The price seemed reasonable and the product was hipped in the time promised

    Cons: It did not work.

    It did not work. My tablet has yet to recognize this as a microphone. The audio has not been enhanced. I spent Twenty-five dollars (product plus expedited shipping) for nothing. It might be my tablet, but since it runs on a system for which the microphone is supposed to be designed, I am disappointed and frustrated. Because I am at camp and have limited time for tech support, I will wait until I am at home and will then ask for more help.

    Thank you for your review on PID 600200. My apologies for the inconvenient experience you have faced with this mini microphone so far. If I may ask, what is the make and model of the tablet? Also, which recording app is being used? Can we test the microphone with a different app? What about with a different device such as a phone? Please let me know so I can further assist you in resolving this matter. Thank you in advance!

    Can't hear a difference

    Pros: - Good price
    - Solid manufacturing
    - Nice finish
    - Foam filter included

    Cons: - Smelly
    - No information included in the box

    Just received this microphone yesterday and since then I've making recordings and videos to compare with the iPhone 6 Plus mic. I don't know if the Iphone's mic is too good but I can't notice any difference. I think I'll be returning this item. I can use my money in some other gadget for my video hobby.
