It's sound quality is perfect

Reviewed by George on Argos

This mic is easy, simple and unique it is everything a streamer needs. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to start streaming.

Everything is amazing

Reviewed by Hammered on Argos

Firstly, the microphone is just amazing. The quality is mind blowing. The dial at the bottom of the microphone is very useful changing the sensitivity how much is picked up. The ability to touch the microphone to mute it is one of it's best features and the red and black design with the illuminating red is the best. There are multiple pickup selections the microphone provides which suits it to different kinds of needs like ASMR and podcasts which eliminates any reason not to get it. ... More

I love it!!!

Reviewed by Ivon on B&H Photo Video

So, I purchased the Shure MV7 Podcast Microphone Kit with Blue Compass Premium Tube-Style Boom Arm (Black) and I must say I don't have any regrets. Off the top, there is one thing that I wish were different, but nonetheless, these products are pretty amazing. Firstly, the Shure MV7 Podcast Microphone is remarkably impressive in the construction, sound quality, and remarkable depth of controls that you have via the Shure Desktop Motiv app or the on-mic controls. This brings me to the thing that wished were different. The connectivity of the app. Shure does provide access to both a desktop and a smartphone app (that you will have to download) but the microphone can only be connected to the devices using wires. It would be more convenient if they were able to connect wirelessly (via WiFi or/and Bluetooth). Once connected to your device the mic can be used or it can also be used by connecting to an audio device using an XLR cord. (regular microphone cable). The Shure MV7 Podcast Microphone is an incredible option for content creators without the needed accessories like cloud lifter and the likes, which other microphones in that category demands. This saves you money, time (as it is faster and easier to set up), and it is more compact and less of a distraction while in use. Lastly, the Blue Compass Premium Tube-Style Boom Arm is smooth, modern, and extremely pleasant to look upon. The Boom Arm is impressively designed and helps tremendously with cable management. The cable fits snuggly in the arm. The boom arm is not bulky and is built very sturdily. Once, the microphone is mounted, it is very easy to adjust the boom arm for perfect positioning. I LOVE THIS!!! ... More

Accurate, versatile, pleasing - fabulous mic.

Reviewed by Charlie on B&H Photo Video

This is my first mic ever, and it's perfect for my needs - podcasting, voiceover, and audio books. The option of USB and/or XLR is convenient (and rare), and the idiot-proof software allows this non-technical user to adjust the sound quality to suit different needs and moods (bright for zoom calls, neutral for audio books, dark for voiceovers (drama!). My only concern, expressed by everyone, is the choice of micro USB for the mic end of the USB connection, but that's not enough of a disappointment to deduct anything meaningful. IMPORTANT NOTE! As many reviewers discovered, MV7 is a little too sensitive to plosive sounds (the popping of P's or B's). That is true. However, replacing the standard windscreen with the Shure RK345 will eliminate this problem and render the MV7 a wonderful not-too-bright, not too woolly, mic for a variety of uses. Besides the sound, what I like best about the mic is the near/far option in the software. The far setting allows the distinctive, desirable sound of a dynamic mic without forcing you to keep your mouth uncomfortably close to the mic. All 'round terrific choice, and I think it's worth the money. ... More

Best mic for podcasting

Reviewed by Chris on Guitar Center

This is my 4th mic I've used while doing my podcast. The Rode NT-USB is by far the best I've ever used. The Blue Yeti was too sensitive, the Blue Spark garbled my voice, and the Samson Meteor Mic required too much software to function properly. The Rode was good right out of the box and did not require tinkering to make it "better". The included pop filter is worth it's weight in gold. The other thing that makes this great is it uses a standard USB/USB2 cord, so they are easily picked up if you need an extra. Listen to people on YouTube and SoundCloud compare audio clips using Rode and the other three mice I mentioned and see if you do not agree. Suoer impressed! ... More

Great mic, even better price

Reviewed by Matt on Guitar Center

It mic was perfect for the music project that I have been working on. I needed a mic that simple to set up, easy to adjust, and very user friendly (I am not a great singer, so I just needed something that can make me sound half decent at a good price). The price is very affordable for the quality that you will receive. The fact that it comes with a pop filter was awesome too (really makes a difference). And having it as simple as a plug into a USB port was extremely convenient. My Mac recognized it as what it is immediately (just have to adjust the mic input and output if needed; very simple). It sounds great, and if you want to sound better, just use your music software to adjust if needed. Great product. Amazing price. ... More

Same great AT-2020, now with USB. (AT-2020USB+ model)

Reviewed by Scott on Musicians Friend

So this is the same great AT-2020 Condenser microphone with a built-in AD converter for USB recording. GREAT option for recording yourself playing through an amp at home or in the studio with a computer. It's a big big step up from any built in microphone on a camera or phone, and the price is not bad. You can often find this on sale for the same price as it's non-USB version. It features its own volume control as well as a headphone jack and built in headphone amp with its own volume control, allowing for monitoring of the signal outside of the computer you're recording on. Sound wise this is a very nice mic. Clean, articulate, and sensitive. It's sturdily built and feels substantial in your hand. I use it to record and compare various amps, tubes, guitars, pickups. There's only one teeny tiny negative and that's that the tripod is a bit off-center and easily tips over if you don't arrange to have one leg sticking out directly under the microphone. Not even worth taking off a star though as it's rarely a real problem. ... More

AT2020 USB - Best Value!

Reviewed by Champ on B&H Photo Video

I use this microphone to record my videos for youtube. Quite often I would recieve comments that my old microphone (which had cost me $300) allowed for a lot of background noise to interrupt my commentaries. Admittedly I was skeptical about buying a microphone for less than $ and expecting any decent results. (Especially for a USB microphone). As it turns out, not only does this microphone beat my old expensive microphone in every possible way, its easy to take with me on trips so I don't have to sacrifice audio while submitting videos away from home. The USB allows for me to carry this microphone anywhere I go as it does not require any additional equipment. In addition, at this price I've decided I am going to buy two, just so I can keep one in a travel pack so I don't forget. The quality is heads and tails above similarly prices microphones and even the really expensive ones! On the downside its not quite the quality of the really expensive microphones but, those would cost you easily ten times the price of this one. What a great product, audio technica really surprised me with this one! ... More

Great Sound & Price. Love my Death Star!

Reviewed by Ludo the Red Furry Beast on B&H Photo Video

I am a training specialist who is transitioning from on-site education to virtual, including on-line, real-time interactive classes and Web Based Training. After enduring my company-supplied high-end headset, which presents you on video as a headset-wearing geek with a scratchy voice, I decided to invest in a big-boy microphone. My Scott heritage argued for economy, so I took a chance on the Snowball. Talk about Bang for your Buck! Instead of sounding like a robot from a bad 50's sci-fi, my customers can now enjoy my rich baritone. I am re-recording earlier WBTs to bring up the production value several notches. And I have started using speech recognition software for dictation, something the headset mic just couldn't handle. My Snowball saved the day at a recent class. It was a live class, but one student needed to attend remotely. The instructor couldn't use a headset as she needed mobility across the front of the room. I plugged in the Snowball, and she could be heard loud and crystal clear from any point in the presentation area. The only negative comments I've read complain that the tripod is too small and the 6' USB cord is to short. Hogwash! These included accessories are perfect for 95% of users. The Snowball mounts to a standard tripod screw. Need a sturdier base? Go get one! Need a longer cord? It's standard! Go get one! Bottom Line, if you are looking for solid audio performance at an unbeatable price, this is your mic. Rob Walsh P.S.: When I received my Snowball, my first thought was OMG! I bought the Death Star!. And if you screw in the tripod and turn it sideways, it kinda looks like Sputnik. So, a Must Have for space geeks! ... More

Very Good!

Reviewed by Shadowknight805 on B&H Photo Video

I use the Snowball for audio recording and general gaming. Even if I'm away from my desk, leaning back in nmy rolling chair on the back two legs, because I, too, like to live dangerously, the Snowball still picks up my voice rather well. The product is also quite pretty. Yeah, I said pretty. So what, big whoop, you want to fight about it? I'm unsure how much damage it can take, but if you are worried about that, then you may just want to stock up on some Rock Band or Guitar Hero mixs and get a stand for them. That'll be a lot cheaper than breaking one of these babies. I guess the only downside, and this may just be because my desk is small and I have items everywhere for my professional worky time, that the Snowball is a rather large gentleman, and will take up much desk space. Also, it does not include a top hat or monocle, which makes it hard to believe that it is a gentleman. ... More

Rode Podcaster is the best

Originally I purchased the Blue Yeti Mic. The problem was that the Yeti was way to sensitive and would capture vibrations from my desk or the fans of my desktop. Thus, I decided to try the Rode Podcaster together with a popup filter, Rode Boom and Rode shockmount. What a difference: now I have no problems with background noise, a bit better quality of the recording, and since I am using the Rode Boom I have plenty of extra desk space in front of me.

Excellent usb mic

Reviewed on B&H Photo Video

After over 35 years in radio broadcasting, I just simi-retired and was looking for a good USB mic that I could use on the road with my lap top when I went out of town. Although I no longer do a daily radio show, I still record commercials and weather forecasts, etc. from home on a part time basis. For that I use a Shure SM7B broadcast XLR mic on my desktop computer and transfer them to on the air with a special program. But I occasionally go out of town so I needed a good USB mic that I could use with my lap top for recording. After reading many reviews I decided to go with the Rode NT-USB and it has exceeded my expectations. I wasn't sure if this would be good enough for broadcast radio,, but this mic does the trick and really sounds good. Not as deep a presence for vocals as the Shure, it is nonetheless very bright sounding, clear, and is good enough for what I do on broadcast radio for out of town. If you do voice overs for Youtube videos (like I also do), this mic is perfect Be sure to order the OURAY Desktop Reflection Filter mic stand along with the Rode mic, it helps a lot with deadening room noise and gives a better all around sound presence. Great mic. ... More

LOVE the mic, LOVE the kit, just not the Rode USB cable.

Reviewed by Tim on B&H Photo Video

I was delighted with the mic until I tried using it with Camtasia for recording. The USB signal connected, disconnected, connected... The input selector was unstable, there was a click-click in the headphone when I raised the volume control, there was no system audio, and video playback was messed up. After testing the Rode NT-USB with Camtasia on two different computers, installing different video cards (I almost bought another one), I finally figured out what was causing all the problems with the NT-USB with Camtasia. In one test on a third computer I pulled an old (thick, very well shielded, shorter) USB cable out of my box of spare computer parts (like we all have). The Rode mic performed PERFECTLY on computer #3! Around 3 in the morning, I started thinking... could it be the CABLE??? That morning I connected the spare cable I had used in the third test to the original computer.... and all the problems went away. The repeated "bebop, bebeep" USB connection sounds, the issue with Camtasia, the volume indicator that indicted steady sound when there was none ... all gone. System audio plays back and videos run normally. It works PERFECTLY! No need to return to B&H, no need to replace as defective, no need for a new video card, no need for new video drivers or reinstall Camtasia. Just replace the poorly insulted Rode USB cable with a better insulated (shorter) USB cable. The cable is too long, too think and apparently poorly insulated, so I also recommend NOT coiling it up to get rid of the extra length. I learned that in my experiments as well. That's where the "click click" in the headphones came from: simple crosstalk feedback between signal out and signal in. Bottom line: EXCELLENT microphone, excellent Studio Package Kit, PERFECT for working with Camtasia. The attached image illustrates how you know there is crosstalk: full meter indication with no sound input. That's how you know when there's a crosstalk issue. ... More

Can use for skype or other voicechat progs, (a bit expensive for that purpose, however!) Built-in soundcard with zero latency headphone monitor port (1/8" jack). I intend to also use it to audition for voice-over acting jobs. Thanks, Blue (and Guitar Center!) Dislikes? A bit heavy, 4 pounds with stand, 1.5 without. BIG! Don't expect much portability. Very sensitive; pop filter recommended. Must be very close to get full, rich sound using directional cardiod pattern. A definite best buy! ... More

This is a Cool Mic for the price!

Needed a quick voice trak capture solution sometimes all 3 of our production studios are busy the THX certification was an attention getter so we tried this mic out our editing software(adobe Audition) Windows xp and Windows 7 machines reconized the mic no problems.. with out eq or signal processing mic sounds Prety Darn Good!! when you buy this mic, yes pop screen is standard and like other condensers this mic has very good ears even in cardoid pattern so be aware of your studio ambient noise levels so for usb voice capture and budget we're Darn happy with this mic.. Try it we think you'll dig this mic! ... More
