There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Issues with the product: There is a small hissing sound at the background even with AGC off. I later found out that this noise comes only if the laptop is kept for charging and charger was responsible for interference. However it's not a big issue, I removed it with Audacity software. I also recommend you to keep mobile phones away from the mic during recording.
Installation was quick as I never had any issues while using it with Windows 7. I am happy with this product.
Not working on any other OS .. Than Windows XP or Mac...
It's a hoax.. Theres no such problem..
I m using win 10 and dis mic is jus plug and play.. No external plugins or installations required..
1. Try unchecking the AGC check box under the microphone settings... Which is checked by default..
Dis will reduce the humming sound doing by almost 80%...
2.if after the first step... U r still getting lil bit humming sound then... It's becuz of absence of a grounding wire in the microphone...
Correct this problem by connecting the rim of Microphone 's metal head with a wire and then wrapping up the other end of the wire to the upper portion of USB metal part .. But you have to make sure that it doesn't obstruct the plugging the USB into port..
After this check the quality now...
You are done...!!
Enjoy the 20× quality for what you have paid for..
It's an awesome microphone!!
The mic is certainly not fancy looking but it's built well. The mic grill is made of some sort
of metal and the rest is plastic with smooth finishing. Definitely feels solid in the hand.
The stand does the job but it does get wobbly at times. The cable is long enough for most use
cases. This mic does have some negative reviews and that's because of a continuous buzzing noise
but so far i didn't notice anything as such and yes one needs to set it up properly before passing
If you are in the market to buy a usb microphone from a reputed brand,
it would set you back atleast 5000 bucks so this one priced at 1800 bucks is totally worth a try.
The mic sounds good with clear sound and but don't expect studio quality here.
Yes there is a humming sound on my mac but removing charger and reducing the input volume by 70% compeletely removed the noise.
