14 January 2018
Hi guys! This mic is awesome in this price range. ***But it is SUPPORTED only in MOBILE PHONES , LAPTOPS( NEW MODELS WHICH HAVE SINGLE AUDIO/VIDEO OUTPUT JACK), TABS ***This microphone is unsupported to Desktop!!!!
This is an unbiased review of this product.I hope that you will like it and will help you purchasing the product. So this mic is good for recording sound that's simple but the sound quality isn't that good.You need to edit the audio after recording. As I am using it for my YouTube videos I have to edit the audio.The recorded sound from the mic have a lot bass and that's sound bad. So If you record video with your phone away from you then it is a good solution to record the audio by external mic. Thus I rated it 3 Star.
I purchased this for 124 Rs which is all waste. This will work only with phone but NOT with computer or laptop. This mic records all the surrounding sounds and very difficult to reduce the noice in editing. If tried hard, our voice quality reduces and that becomes very dull tone. I've shocked after seeing the original mic size in this lapel. This is just a show-off purpose mic in front of camera while shooting some interview type videos. Sound recording capacity is too low.
The package came in ok, tested the mic on 2 different smartphones of 2 different eras (if I may say so) viz. on a Nokia Lumia 530 (Win. 8.1 OS) and the new Nokia 5 and observed the following: 1) The mic worked perfectly in video rec modes on Nokia Lumia 530. But it was no use on the Nokia 5 video rec mode.
2) So, basically, the mic may have been customized to operate for the older generation of smartphones like mine than the newer versions. However, I'm not going to ask for a return/replacement but instead would like to TEST some more on other devices viz. DSLR cameras, etc. to arrive at a better conclusion.
The image shown about this mic is not real.. There is metal clip shown but I got very cheap quality plastic cable. I think it will come some packet but It came in only a piece of small polyethene. It provides very poor sound quality. It's wire quality is also very poor. It's sound quality is very much similar to the sound recorded by smartphone. So don't waste money. The picture shown above of mic is all fake.
Is 3rd class what you do if you want to microphone you can put your hands free in your phone and you can use like a your microphone but you don't go with this product because it is not a proper collar mic it is just a mic for any nuisance so don't go with this product is not good bad bad bad
The microphone is similar to the ones found in cheap Intex desktop headsets. Noise cancellation is barely there and the mic suffers from static noise (depends on whether your system has that issue but the mic picks it up far more than other headset mics).
Keep in mind that for most mobile phones, the mic will not be plug and play and you may need headphone-mic splitter for it to work. Also, the delivery was pretty lack luster (using India Post and the box inside was damaged in shipping) but you cannot expect more for the price point.
TL;DR: Don't buy if you already have a decent (even some entry-level) headset with mic. Only suitable if you really need a cheap dedicated mic...actually never mind! The phone's in-built mic can do better than this. The only thing being that if you are recording video, holding up the phone close to you is not a good look.
Just useless. Haven't used this after first use. Very high distortion sound inthe background. If edited in Adobe audition still the noise is there or voice over quality will be reduced. Don't waste money on these mics just buy condenser mic for 1000 or above...
If you want to record through your mobile phone, then it's ok. Otherwise if you want to use this for dslr, don't buy it, coz it doesn't support DSLRs properly, makes various noises and doesn't records well.
