General Your general opinion of this product. To be honest I purchased this more so for the cool new shock mount, which when you consider by itself costing $79; I could have bought a different Chinese made condenser for that same price that would have preformed as good or maybe even better than this. I find it can sometimes be a crapshoot when it comes to a lot of these import Asian under $300 studio mics. They seriously can be hit or miss, not unlike a lot of the Russian mics right before the lower priced made in China mic craze which I still think isn't much different than the recent more affordable, "true bypass", style made in China guitar effect pedals. There decent for what they cost and you can get by using them but you do get what you pay for. Don't let anyone try to tell you that you don't get better sound quality based on how much more you pay. In most cases,not all the more you spend the better the sound quality. Those who disagree do so because they are usually the ones trying to sell lower priced stuff like this. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Decent but lets not get carried away, it isn't hand engineered with German precision. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? Super easy, just make sure you have and know what phantom power is and does. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? The cool new patented shock mount! Sound How is the tone? Again hit or miss with these Chinese made mics. This ones not bad but I own $89 mxl much like this that sound better. At the same time I own other made in China mocs that cost more than this that do not sound as good. I'm one to believe that a decent mic pre can go a long way with these cheap mocs.
Sounds Great!

I use this at another member of my groups studio and I compared the sound quality to my blue spark and blue bird and the sound just comes out clear I am considering getting this mic as an addition to my lab but if I win it it will mean that much more to me great piece of work rode Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Made well and easy to maintain Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? We have been using this mic for about 4 mnths give or take we where using the anniversary model before also great set up is a no brainer Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? A reflection filter added to this works wonders depending on the acoustics of the rm or booth Sound How is the tone? Sound is great like I said check the acoustics of the rm or booth a reflection filter may be needed
