"Best in class"
Your general opinion of this product.
If this is your price point, there really is no peer. This is absolutely the best sub-$500 mic. I doesn't have low shelf or db PAD, but it really doesn't need it. It just sounds good. If you pair it with mogami cables and a decent tube mic pre, you will have professional results.
Again, this product is really flawless. Totally simple and works perfectly. I've had it for two years now and it has made its way into every recording session I have done. Vox mostly, but it is also really good on acoustic guitars as well.... (it picks up room and high end better than the pencil mics).
Easy as it gets... plug and play.
N/A - I really like its simplicity. My signal chain has all the features I need, I just need the mic to capture accurate sound and it does.
Sounds like a Nuemann at 1/3 the price. In fact, I think it would be hard to tell the difference in a blind-fold test.

Quality and Value.
Its a build is excellent.
It could have a high pass and a shock-mount but it doesn't.Surely this was done to keep the price competitive.
Plug it in ..phantom it on.
Quality round "neumannesque" sound signature. No sibilance with warm friendly highs! It's incredible for the price!
Your general opinion of this product.
Love it ..period

Very Solid Build. I'd say solid as a Neumann!
Low freq roll-off switch. Tight, clean, and very low self noise!
Very Easy. Best if you take some time to set your mic pre-amp's impedance level accordingly to the MK4. Normally mic pre-amps should be set to 8 or 10X impedance of the mic.
Smooth highs, NOT brittle. Tight lows, NOT loose or muddy. To my ear, the MK4 has approx 70% of the Neumann TLM-103's sound character.

Mic Check
This product is made very well. Its build like a tank, nothing cheap about it.
Best feature has to be the mic head. The head of the mic is pretty large, so the mic catches all that goes into it. I wish they would of added the other two patterns though.
Product is very easy to use just plug and play.
The tone of the mic is by far one of these best condensers hands down for the price range. When recording vocals I was amazed how accurate they were. Top end is just a little too much for my taste but with a little EQ you can change that.
