Pros and Cons

Pros4

The only downside to these mics is that the wires can get soldered on backwards at the factory so if you buy two, they could be out of phase. The pyle mic was better suited for those frequencies and provided a very nice sound for my project. Great mic...  Read More

Are these as good as shure 57s? Bought 2 as a cheaper sm57 alternative. Sounds brighter than an sm57 but very similar still. It sounds good enough that i'd happily sub one for a "real" 57 and not worry it will get dropped or spilled on.

Sure the finish is cheap, but the casing itself feels solid. Bought 2 more right after. Seem to be pretty sturdy too.

Crystal clear highs, beautiful clarity, no boomy-ness. It does a shockingly great job for the price.

Cons2

This mic is very fragile due to being of poor quality. The sound quality is fair but i don't think it compairs to the shure. When i used them with my mixer, there was too much hissing and cracking.

Soldering and wires are terrible, plus i had the bad luck of receiving one that had solder from one of the wires in contact with the nut the holds the capsule together. The connector on the bottom going to the xlr cable is loose and shakes around.

Audio pros will enjoy having this in their backpack too. Ease of use with my daw adobe audition is a huge bonus. K371 headphones are top notch. Usb-c. Headphone is great.

Akg pro audio podcaster essentials kit is perfect for a beginner's needs - at least, for me it is. This microphone works really well for things like voiceovers from a home studio, etc. Using it for zoom conferencing and distance learning. Great for ip...  Read More

The lyra has a plastic body, mounting knobs, and adjustment knobs. The stand is stable and there’s a socket so you can mount the mic to a mic boom.

An absolutely incredible microphone. Got an incredible deal on it at $69. It is easily worth twice that, imo. It gets two thumbs up from me!

The akg mic is a plug and play device that works very well. The mic plugs into a usb port, and the headset rca jack plugs into the mic.

Cons1

This particular whining sound comes and goes. It is not plug and play with the iphone. There's circuitry that's waking up upon audio playback or other activities. The high pitched left-channel whine is unacceptable.
