5 out of 5 eggsGreat Quality

Pros: Very clear and has gain control. It also has multiple settings for different areas

Cons: Needs to come with a stand

Other Thoughts: Amazing mic offers true to life sound. I found myself having to change y recording software so it was as hd as the mic.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed at exactly 30 days

Pros: Well I supposed it was good while it lasted. Granted I was plugging it in directly to my usb port on my computer which caused some distortion.

Cons: 3 of the 4 knob settings stopped working flat out. As in no sound would be picked up by the microphones. The first setting still worked but the volume and gain options didn't. And how wonderful that it died just hours after my RMA options expired from newegg. So now I get to deal with Blues tech support come Monday morning.

Out of the box its nothing special. You need to spend some time with the settings. But once you get it homed in it starts acting like a microphone worth the price... if it lasts.

Other Thoughts: At this rate I'm not sure if I want an RMA or my money back.

5 out of 5 eggsFANTASTIC Sound Quality

Pros: Super easy setup, and lots of options to use the mic in any setting. Super solid feeling mic. Very sturdy build quality, and is a massive mic.

Cons: Over the years, the metallic coating on the base is beginning to rub down, but really its just cosmetic. This thing is solid. The Mute button can be a little touchy in terms of responsiveness but overall works fine. Again this is being really picky. Overall love the mic.

Other Thoughts: Love it, I always get questions on what mic I am using because it is so clear. No need for what I do to go get any mega expensive mic, this one knocks most of the competition on its rear.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Sound Quality and Build Quality

Pros: This microphone is by far one of the best mics you can get for the price. The sound quality is amazing and once you get the hang of using it, you fall in love with it. It is also built very well and is simple to use. This mic is good for anything from YouTube video of whatever, Podcasts/Radio Shows, sounds for video games, music vocals, and more just that is the main audio things.

Cons: None that I have found.

Other Thoughts: The only thing you have to be careful of is that the mic twists. You could REALLY break the cord that connects the mic to the computer if you are not careful. I almost damaged it some but I was able to stop myself. Overall, great product and I recommend that you buy it.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth it

Pros: Excellent sound. Having this mic for my Skype and other conference calls is invaluable. Even with bad connections the added clarity is a big help. Also perfect for recording voiceovers for videos; haven't needed a pop screen in cardioid mode. Also an excellent in two-way mode for interviews, although sometimes I turn the gain down because the mic is just too good and will pick up room noise.

Cons: Has a somewhat large desktop footprint. Since it's mountable I'll probably just get an articulated arm so I can easily move it in and out of use.

5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding! Both Windows 7 & 8 and Linux!

Pros: Review as of 10/27/2014, Owned for 1 month:

Excellent quality! Works perfectly on both Windows 7 & 8 and Debian Linux (latest stable). Tested using Audacity (recording software) and Skype on both systems. While on Skype, my spouse in another country said it sounded so clear that it was as if I were actually next to her.

Suggestion for Debian Linux users: Search the Skype site for "Debian" and follow the installation instructions. On "amd64" port, you need to use "dpkg --add-architecture i386 && apt-get update" prior to installation.

Cons: None.
