    Works For Me

    Pros: Good sound quality.
    Fairly rugged.

    Cons: (To be discovered).

    This is a good microphone for the price. The audio quality isn't perfect, but it is very close. I'd say this is for someone who is between an amateur and a hardcore professional. I've seen a few complaints about volume. Remember, levels can be adjusted in the computer's settings.

    only Left Channel

    • Rich Anderson,

    Pros: It looks great, seems sturdy. Nice black color and finish

    Cons: This microphone, and the replacement I received brings sound in on only the Left channel. The sound level on the right channel is very weak. Using it to record voice-overs (in video editing software), again, only puts sound down on the left track. You can also notice a background buzz coming from the microphone. (buzz only there in the video, when you get to the part with the voice-over. Rating this only 2 stars, as I guess it is useable, if you want to go thru a lot of 'hoops' to record what you want first, then output that file as a mono file, (or copy left track to right track). But I would rather just have it work as I would expect it to work. As a side note, you can hear sound on the right track, (I guess I should say "see" waveforms in the right track). and see slight movement on the right track VU meter, but it is a very tiny signal. For comparison, the Left channel is about 5 times as loud as the right channel. Both the original microphone, and the replacement I received behave the same way. Other microphones I have used, do not behave this way on my system.

    This microphone seemed promising and I was excited to receive it. When I used it for the first time I was able to record sound only on the left channel. Disappointed, I returned it to Monoprice for replacement. I just received the replacement, and it does the same thing. Using it with FaceTime or Skype the person I talked with said they can only hear me in their left headphone. This matches when I use this microphone and record into Audacity, I only get sound at volume on the Left Channel to record. The right channel signal is very weak.

    Great Microphone -Recommend

    • Kyle Maynard,

    Pros: Great pickup without distortion.

    I've even had people ask what mic I use online.
    Recommend ordering a boom type mic stand also.

    Cons: None

    So, I use mine for gaming as well. I had gone through a number of USB microphones over a period of a couple years. I am also have my AV CTS. I was thinking there had to be a USB mic that had similar quality to a studio XLR's. I shopped for around for about a year looking at other manufacturers. Way too expensive and always needed a analog USB converter. Then I saw this one day and thought it looks right and is a great price in comparison to others. Well this is it the right choice.

    Pros: This was found to a high quality microphone for a computer world.

    Cons: No shock mount

    I have received many compliments as to the audio quality of this microphone, it has more bass and much richer sound than previous microphones I have used.

    Great microphone

    • sebastianbaraj5,

    Pros: -Feels durable
    -Looks nice/professional
    -Great for podcasts
    -Great for talking to friends when gaming online
    -Mic stand is actually helpful

    Cons: -Depending on what program you use there are Times where my mouth needs to be really close to the Mic in order to be here, and there are times where I don't

    I am very happy with my this mic, I originally was going to get a Blue Yeti but I was recommended this Microphone. As far as what people have been telling me when I speak into it when I'm online, they say I sound fine. A pop filter would be nice to have with this Mic, but it's not really needed. The problem with me could be that I haven't messed with the settings too much with the programs I use with my Mic. Over all this is a good microphone to use in podcasts/chatting.
