    What is the frequency response for these microphones?
    Subramaniam R on Oct 23, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your interest in this microphone set. The Full Specs tab of the product pages states frequency range as 30Hz-20kHz.
    I have Samson C02’s for drum overheads. Looking for an upgrade. Are these any better?
    Patrick W on Aug 8, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Idk about Samons, not familiar with that make. I'd compare these quality wise to the rode m5's. They are clear, low noise floor, very little color and have a useful response pattern. Build quality might be a little on the light side, but as long as your taking care of them that shouldnt be an issue. If you're upgrading from anything under $150 per mic this will be a better bet.
    What kind of windscreen is included?
    A shopper on Oct 17, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: They each come with a small foam wind screen. I have not used them before since I mainly use these for drum overheads or percussion overdubs.
    How well do these work with the 600700 condenser microphones? Would a shock mount be better even for stationary use?

    Monoprice HyperCardioid Capsule for 600700 Microphone
    BEST ANSWER: These microphones actually come with mic clips included in the package. The spring clips you are asking about will work fine. I use these for choirs in an arena environment (and occasionally overhead drum mics) and have never needed anything other than the included mic clips.
    Does Monoprice sell a mic clip designed for this mic? (Small-Diaphragm Condenser Microphones (Pair), Product # 600700, $99.99)

    For the price, unbeatable
    I have used these microphones to record both close-field voice for video, acoustic stringed instruments, piano, and a large choir. Each time, these microphones have not failed to amaze. I do own several other brands of this style mic, and I can't imagine spending more money for the same (or sometimes even worse) sound.

    I am currently running these microphones through a FocusRite preamp, and when I compare waveforms of the same recording with this microphone, and one that costs hundreds more, there is no discernible difference in quality.

    PROS: -Price!

    -Crystal clear


    CONS: -Would love to have a case instead of a cardboard box.

    Terrific on voice
    I travel to conventions across the country hosting a voice acting workshop panel, and after airport luggage damaged one of my AT4040 microphones, I'd been looking for an inexpensive replacement. These 600700s are just what I was looking for. Because they're so light, there was so little pressure on the boom hinge I could add a clip to hold up the script on the stands, and because they're so small, they didn't get in the way of the talent's view at all. I'm used to dealing with lots of room tone from hosting this panel in hotel office rooms with lots of noise going on. But with the hypercardioid caps on, these mics had surprisingly tight sweet spots and excellent rejection. With the mics set on opposite side of the room, I had much less bleed than I had with the 4040s. Granted, the sound quality wasn't all there these mics have a harshness at 6kHz and above that is pretty grating on the ears. But the rest is mostly flat and surprisingly rich, giving all the quality one would need for recordings being put online in MP3 format. The only other thing I didn't like was the shiny gold color of the caps. I found they were distracting to the talent, forcing me to keep the black foam windscreens on, despite being indoors. Still, extremely happy with this purchase, and I'll be using these mics for all my future panels!

    PROS: - Very small and very light

    - Excellent sound rejection with the hypercardioid caps

    - Very tight pickup pattern and sweet spot

    - Remarkable quality sound for the price

    CONS: - Harshness at 6 kHz and above

    - Gold caps are distracting

    Used these for the first time yesterday for drum overheads at an outdoor concert with 4 different bands and the hypercardioid capsules and was extremely impressed with the results! With 20 minute set changes there is no time to fool with individual tom mics and tweaking EQ and these mics did an outstanding job of capturing the wide variation of drumming styles and kits with the addition of just a kick and snare mic. Impressive low end response for a small diaphragm and extremely sensitive but I was able to get plenty of gain with no feedback problems, although I have to say I was using some nice AT shockmounts which probably helped with low end issues. I am looking forward to using these in the studio with the cardioid capsules and seeing how they compare to the high end KM-84's and C451's I am familiar with.

    PROS: Bought these on sale and for the price they are amazing, included windscreens were an added plus as I use these for outdoor PA.

    CONS: Feel a little flimsy but I wasn't expecting KM-84's at this price.

    Don't be Fooled by High Prices
    These two units perform as specifications state. Tremendous value for the price. Excellent product for all small condenser applications.

    Clean usable sound
    I currently use them for doing some studio recording for an Italian radio program in Toronto and a YouTube channel. This audio in the video hasn't been adjusted much just scrubbed for a little noise.

    PROS: Clean usable sound

    CONS: None so far

    Decent mics
    I don't have a lot of experience with microphones, especially small diaphragm condenser mics, but I do own an AT Pro 37, and have owned an MXL 991. For the money, these mics are comparable to the MXL 991, which came as a 990/991 mic set for about the same price. I've also noticed that they have identical specs to the MXL 603s, which I have not owned, and cost about the same. The AT Pro 37 cost about twice as much for one mic, but IMO do sound a little better with slightly less harsh highs. Based on that, these mics aren't a fantastic deal if they are indeed equal to the MXL 603s, but I do very much prefer the black and gold aesthetic over the (IMO) ugly "gold" finish on the MXLs, so if I were to choose between the MXLs and these, I would go with these on looks alone.

    PROS: Decent sound for the price
    Comes as a pair for stereo recording
    Black and gold looks

    CONS: Same exact specs and similar price as MXL 603 pair

    Great quality and value for voice recording
    I use these mainly for recording voiceovers for training videos with a MicPortPro. The sound quality is excellent and the price is right. I previously used Oktavas for my field speech recording research and these mics are just as good for what I do, but lighter for travel. I hate changing the capsules because of the threads are so rough. Overall very pleased with this purchase.

    PROS: Great sound for speech. Decent foam packaging. Includes holders for mic stands - nice touch.

    CONS: Rough threads on the capsules, feel light and cheap, ugly gold accent keep the windscreen on.

    Amazing sound, delicate construction
    These hold their own. I bought 6 pairs and I use them for mic'ing concert percussion, and the tone character is perfect.

    My Komplete Audio 6 apparently wasn't providing sufficient phantom power for these. A few out of the 12 mics I got would generate a hiss when I tested them on the KA6. But, they all sounded flawless when powered by a mixer.

    These certainly aren't built for rugged performance environments. Take care of them and they'll take care of you.

    Great microphones for the price
    I purchased these mics because I wanted another matched pair to add to my home studio. They are awesome! I like the ability to switch capsules for different pickup patterns too.

    As soon as I got them, I sent them up to record my acoustic 12-string guitar using the same placement I use when I record with my matched pair of mics from a major manufacturer; so that I could compare apples to apples. I was astonished that these mics sounded so transparent. I immediately replaced the cardioid capsules with the hyper-cardioid capsules I bought, repositioned the mics a little and did an awesome second take.

    I cannot say enough about the quality of these mics for the price. Like others have said, they really need a case (not a box). I would've paid an extra cost just for a decent case for them.

    If you are thinking about getting these, quit thinking and just buy them. I will put them up against other microphones from major manufacturers costing 2 to 3 times as much.

    Not bad
    Okay, I just bought these and I haven't had a lot of time to run them through the paces, but i got a good idea of how they'll work. Will update when I used them more.

    First impressions: These bad boys are QUIET– and I don't mean output. I heard very little self-noise from them, which will make them great for quiet environments and instruments. So that's awesome.

    I used them in an X-Y pair and recorded a little bit of acoustic guitar, and I think they reproduced the sound fairly accurately. This being said, the bass response wasn't as accurate as anything above 250-500hz. The mid range and treble frequencies sounded good, and pretty warm, but the bass was fuzzy and inaccurate. this isn't horrible, because I will probably use them most for drum overheads or lighter acoustic instruments that don't have a lot of presence in the lower frequency bands, but just be warned!

    I really like these right out of the box. I'm impressed with the sound quality on something so inexpensive.
