Basic is good 6/20/2020 11:29:42 PM

Pros: Passable recording quality. Good sensitivity. Long cable.

Cons: The "clip" is two semi-rigid flanges - you need something about 3.5 - 6 mm wide to hold it in place. The cable to my headphones is thick enough, but that isn't the case for most such cables. Not a con, just a consideration.

Overall Review: It's sturdier and works better than the price would suggest. Good value, would buy again.

Good but quiet 4/13/2020 11:13:25 AM

Pros: * Sounds good through loopback when placed correctly, and no complaints from other parties
* Long cable is useful

Cons: * Quiet (Asus X470 onboard audio), as some others have commented. Attached it to a zip-tie boom instead of the headphone cable, which seemed to help.
* Would have been nice to have a spring clip instead of a friction clip.

Overall Review: Useful to know: specs on the packaging state that it requires 2 V DC power.

Simple and cost effective 6/23/2017 1:56:25 PM

Pros: Works with windows 10
Cost

Cons: doesnt record voice real loud, but certainly workable for me

Overall Review: Had issues with older headsets on windows 10. Have a great set of klipsch headphones and just put this on the headphone wire close to my mouth as could. Had to wind some black tape around the headphone wire so the zalman clip would hold it there. Mic is not super loud, but I am happy not spending big bucks on a full headset.

Works Great 6/1/2017 11:50:41 AM

Pros: -Lightweight
-Clear sound. It didn't pick up as much ambient sound as I thought it would. Had a desk fan and ceiling fan going but nobody noticed.
-Great price
-Insanely long cord

Cons: -No clip to connect to a shirt.
-The grip that is supposed to go on another cord to keep in place has no adjustment. It's too large to attach to mine so I had to improvise.

Good for the price (not without caveats) 3/7/2017 2:46:42 PM

Pros: -Small
-Has a clip (read Cons)
-Long cord
-Inexpensive
-Does the job as a gaming mic

Cons: -Quiet, must crank up the mic settings and have close to your face
-While there is a clip, as stated by other reviewers, it is more-so a little plastic crevice that you can try to jam your headphone cord into.
To be more specific, this mic will ONLY work with certain headphone cords, so Beware!
If your headphone cord is very thin, like that of earbud cords, it will not clip on, rendering the mic completely useless
If your headphone cord is very thick, (like my old ath-ad700's) the clip will break off, rendering the mic completely useless

I now have a pair of ath-ad900x's and this mic works great

Overall Review: Despite the possibility of getting burned, where else can you find a mic for 8$?
Just make sure your headphone cord is the right thickness (about or a little less than 1/8')

Good mic for the price, with some caveats 1/19/2017 8:15:07 PM

Pros: The sound quality is good, but not perfect.
3.5 mm connection. USB microphones are fine, but they don't play nicely with games, particularly if the cable has a kink in it.
The build quality's decent (except for the con below). It doesn't rattle when you shake it, and the mic itself is rather sturdy.
There's 3 'clips' (read: plastic bits) that allow you to keep the microphone's cable attached to your headphones. They work just fine, though they are prone to sliding. Not sure how well they work with thicker cabling, but it could be worse.

Cons: The 'clip'. So, instead of having a normal clip that allows you to put it on your shirt, it's basically some plastic that you can stuff cables into. It's meant to be attached to your headphones' cable, but it only works as intended with thicker cabling, or if you put your cable on the narrow end of the clip. If you do that though, the mic will slide down your cabling when you bump into it. An alternative is to double-back the mic's own cabling, but that's asking for it to kink.

Overall Review: It's a cheap mic with good audio quality, so it gets a pass.
Next time though, I wish Zalman would spend a pinch more money and add a proper clip.
