Best Buy Customer Reviews

Good little budget microphone with one drawback3 Posted by: from: on This is a decent microphone for the price. It performs well and is certainly a leap above a built in DSLR mic. The only problem I have with it is the battery. It is extremely easy to leave the unit on and if you do it will cost you a $5 battery every, single, time. Very much a pain when you go to use it the next time and are without a mic.

Mic works great for the price4 Posted by: from: Illinois on Bought this mic as an entry level video mic. Performs the job well. Only issue I have encountered is the mic coming loose from the hot shoe while doing motion shots, I just couldn't get it tight enough. But for the price it is not a deal breaker for me.

Great microphone for a beginner5 Posted by: from: on This microphone works great. Have only used it for YouTube video making in a closed room but it was a huge improvement over the camera built-in microphone. Good deal for the price.

Easy to set up and works well4 Posted by: from: Atlanta on I've only used it once but it was recording something in Church. The sound quality was good but be careful and not leave the mike in the on position. There is NO indicator light and I left it on by accident and had to buy another battery.

decent mic for low budget filming3 Posted by: from: on I have been using the condenser mic to record audio while I film on my iPhone. I had to get a special adapter for it to work, but together they work fine. The microphone doesn't have as much reach as a longer microphone with a wider range. It works for in studio recording or small spaces
