Dissapointment

 

I bought this for the sole purpose of being louder than my my current mic, a Guitar Hero microphone, which also barely picks up anything. And it turn out this is even quieter. This cost $60 more and is still worse.

Clear audio, small, comes with a handy clip

Barely picks up any audio. Even with my mouth pressed up against it, it barely gets anything. Tested on my computer and my brother's computer. Maybe this garbage only works for GoPro's. Definitely not even remotely worth $70

Answer to T-bone

 

Consider using a small digital (stereo) recorder as a pre-amp, Feed the output from the digital recorder to your input on the other device. A BX-800 should work. You can get one for $40.

Nice addition to improve sound

 

Added to a Kodak ZI8 digital video camera since internal microphone is mono and of limited quality. Improved sound 100% but needed to add a [...] right angle adapter to get it properly aligned (mic jack is on the side of the camera)

Good Mic

 

Great Mic. If you plan on using it outside, figure out some type of wind cover for it. The mic has great stereo separation. I\'m using it on a new Kodak Playtouch camera, and it sounds great.

It was a gift for my son, and he loves it. He's a programmer, knows his hi-tech gizmos, and was delighted to receive this for his birthday.

suprising quality

 

This is a nice mic for rehearsals or impromptu performances. The sound quality may not be good for a feature film or even an indie film, but you could be very creative and use it for some great environmental sounds. For me, it has provides a useful...
