This in itself isn't a deal breaker, but it would have been better with knobs/*. The app is easy to use, and is great for changing settings like gain. I have a pro-level podcast setup and it takes a bit of time to setup.
One of the nicest features this mic has is that i can switch the meeting audio in zoom between the headphones on the mic and the macbook speakers. The mic stand is sturdy and lands at the perfect height on my desk. Great mic for its purpose.
The sound quality is unmatched for simple plug and play usb microphones. It also has an xlr hookup for a more "pro" user. Other than that, it’s a solid mic.
Not compatible with ipad pro (usb-c). Much better mics out there for $150-200. The micro-b port on the mic is extremely unreliable as a slight movement on the cord can result in disconnection. The micro usb connection is faulty and messes with mic.
This is shure trying to bait people into buying what they think is a slimmed down sm7b. Well sadly, it’s not. This is no better than my 5-year-old blue yeti.
If you’re a beginner and you don’t know much about microphones, this is a great little setup. Super-easy to use and picks up great vocal tones. High recommend - use for zoom calls and virtual presentations.
An absolutely incredible microphone. Anything touching anything. Me, i just care about whether it delivers the performance i need/expect, and it has.
Akg lyra is a great microphone for a good price. The gain knob is the best part of the mic. The headphone jack is a nice addition to the headphone.
It is really just plug & play, but it also comes with a free copy of ableton lite. It works fine with both mac and windows and is truly plug and play.
Much better than some * webcam mic. If you need a great mic and don't want to have to use a secondary audio converter, the lyra is one of the best.
The mute button is just a fail. It is not plug and play with the iphone. The volume control knob doesn't control the headphone volume. The front audio control is pretty much also unusable.
In precisely the same configurations, neither of those suffers from this problem. It produces sharp metal noise when recording singing or any loud sound. This makes it hard for adjustments. Not usable if actually recording or doing a webinar.
This particular whining sound comes and goes. My guess is that there's circuitry that's waking up upon audio playback or other activities. In all 4 cases the whining sound is present.
