Takeaway: Works okay, but has to be real close to your mouth. Needs a bit of gain boost or use a preamp.

You’ll receive the microphone, a mini tripod, a 5’ XLR to USB cord, and a quick start manual. On a Window’s PC, the drivers should be installed automatically when you plug it into a USB port. On top of the body of the mic, there’s a volume dial. Turning the volume to the minimum will shut the mic off and you’ll hear and feel a click. Scrolling towards the back of the mic turns the volume to the max. When assembled, the mic sits about 8” high and can be raised to about 10”. The mic can be tilted for an upward angle or a downward angle.

The mic sounds somewhat muffled in comparison to my lapel mic. It doesn’t sound as clear and crisp and to get it to pick up my voice, I have to be speaking very close and directly into it. If I try speaking from a few feet away you can barely hear my voice. You also may notice a slight hum of line noise in the background. In general, does the mic work? Yes, but only when it's in your face. This isn’t super convenient for shooting videos if you don’t want your face to be covered by a microphone. It might work well for radio, pod casts, karaoke, or personal recordings.
