Amazing for the money!
By Matthew Berman
[[VIDEOID:65107284cd64fa32f66475674c61b901]]Overall the sound produced from this microphone is very good for most purposes, especially content being produced for the internet. Getting all of these things in one kit for $40 is an amazing deal. One thing to keep in mind is that this microphone does require phantom power. For me I used a neewer phantom power box which can be picked up on amazon for around $20. Even factoring that in $60 total is still great. Overall everything included seems to be of decent quality that should last for a long time. Neewer arm mounts are legendary for there low price and great build quality. Though I do think this produces better sound than something like a blue snowball setup and using is not as elegant because of the lack of a direct usb interface, but like I said for the money this kit is great.

The Microphone records stunning audio. It's great for recording narrations, instrumentals/vocals, and other general audio recording purposes. However, check that the device you plan to plug the microphone into will provide enough power for the mic, otherwise you can still purchase this mic and but a Phantom Power. The rest of the kit is where I have some problems. The scissor arm, pop filter, and shock mount are all as shown in the images. These work as they should. However, the table clamp for the scissor arm is made of thinner metal than the one in the image, and the screw is made out of plastic and metal instead of the completely metal part as shown in the images. While it still works in its intended purpose, the materials used to make it up are below the quality I expected.

Great microphone kit for anyone on a budget. Does need phantom power.
I ordered this as a cheap way to improve the sound quality of my YouTube videos. So far I am very happy with my purchase! Despite what other people have been saying about this microphone I found that it does require the use of a phantom power supply. The microphone feels great and the sound quality is very good for the price. All of the included accessories of the kit feel great. everything was easy to set up, within 10 minutes I was up and recording my next video using the microphone.
