Pros and Cons

Pros4

The focusrite scarlett audio interface seems to do the job, although most suggest also purchasing a cloud lifter to boost the gain of the microphone cleanly. It's a quality mic, that doesn't require phantom power off your board.

The sound is a1, guests and listeners always compliment the quality. It has great background noise reject. Overall it's amazing and captures sound beautifully.

Build quality is solid, and it has a nice look. It's very sleek and modern looking.

The shure sm7b is absolutely legendary. Feels almost silly to write a review because, i mean, it’s thesm7b. The sm7b is a bit odd.

Cons2

Highly disappointed. Would expect better quality consistency. Major bummer" "i have to actually boast the trim, gain, and volume so much that it is almost unusable. And why is that?

Sounds like a lav mic compared to the others. The box looks very cheap for a $400 mic, i’m not sure if these are legit or not.

Pros1

This product is very good. Having an interface fixes this issue. The microphone is great. The usb wire works great.
