Vincent38's review

By Vincent38, 14/09/2007
Microphone head


It is only a few weeks I use it.
The sound is good. In the beginners there was a problem but the blast cap foam provides significantly limit this breath.
A good quality price
I do not regret the investment.

Not bad

Dynamic headband microphone (for the song ... mostly logic).

So dynamic ... not require phantom power.

Frequency response: 50Hz-15kHz (narrower than a lot of microphones).


Recently purchased, I had already bought a few years ago in Jack version, but sold.

I immediately plugged in my keyboard amp, instead of a Sennheiser E835 (good basic dynamic vocal microphone for about 80 euros). Speaking, I was surprised by the lack of output level he had in relation to the E835, but when I actually started singing, it went much better.

Overall, the level is still a bit weak and needs to push the volume.

The frequency response is narrower and increases the medium, presumably to mitigate the 'POP' (in the grave) and 'SSSS' (in acute).

In its "pure", it is not great but there must be a way to fix it in the mix.

Personally I plug in a Roland VP330 vocoder, and it's great! The result is slightly better than my E835. The frequency response is perhaps something ...

Summary: In its pure, it's not the top but it happens. To use a vocoder, it's excellent!

I've been playing in "Tribute" bands for 10 years. Been all over the world playing music. Even played for Royalty. Drums & Percussion are my 1st love. But, I also play bass and Guitar. I taught drums lessons for 5-6 years at a local muusic store.

I bought this Mic for $120.00 (including taxes) from Long & McQuade in Langley, BC Canada.

It's lightweight, sounds pretty good, & adjustable. I really like the fact it comes with a belt clip 'cause the weight of a connected XLR plug could easily pull the headset off your head if you move too quickly.

It won't sound like a Shure 58. It is great for back up vocals or talking engagements/gigs. But since the mic is small and just off to the side of your mouth it won't have full presence. People wearing glasses will have a problem wearing both at the same time. 'Since they occupy the same space around the ears.

The metal head brace is black and is wrapped in a neoprene band, originally ment for glasses/sunglasses. It can fit comfortably, but you gotta to some adjusting

I like it. It doesn't pick up heavey breathing, even through the mouth. And it sounds pretty good. It's an excellent mic for a drummer or anyone who needs their space infront of them. The price is not too bad either.

I'm the PA guy locally for football, basketball and track. I have been wanting a headset mic for years now to clear out that room on the desk while doing games. A table top mic is right in the middle of everything and a wireless hand held mic is always on. I bought this mic and paired it with a Shure push to talk button. It works fantastically giving me instant on and off plus my desk area is free of the table mic. I also used it for State Championship football and the University of Missouri and the sound personnel there assured me this is a professional quality mic. It is a 3 pin setup and the sound quality is crisp and clear. All you PA guys out there looking for a great tool to add to your bag get this and the Shure A120S switch and you are going to be a happy camper.
