I was skeptical about buying a microphone that for $35 came with an arm stand, pop filter, and various other parts. It wouldn’t be possible for the microphone to sound decent when half the cost goes to the equipment…. Right?I initially used the “splitter” USB cable because I was too lazy to purchase a proper XLR cable. I booted up my favorite audio program and started recording. Immediately a high-pitched noise was eminating in my headphones. And you could laugh at how you could barely hear my voice through the grunge. I basically lost all hope in this product.BUT WAIT!!! So I decided to go the proper route and get my lazy self to Guitar Center and bought a XLR cable I found on clearance for open box. I came directly home and plugged the cable into my new microphone and into my Focusrite Scarlett Solo I previously purchased for recording electric guitar. Once again, I booting up my recording software.IT SOUNDED AMAZING. In fact, it was extremely comparable to my buddy’s microphone (I forget the brand, sorry) that cost nearly $120. That one didn’t come with the arm stand or pop filter, either. Is it perfect? Absolutely not. But does it record extremely well for the price? Yes!!!!*please note that you WILL need a recording box (such as the Focusrite) to function properly*
First of all, I am coming from a different use case than most people. But I have had a lot of experience in podcasting and live music recording and this package is a phenomenal value. You would usually pay more for the swing arm than this whole kit costs.I have worked with economy condenser microphones before, such as the MXL-990. This microphone is very comparable. Audio Technicas and Sennheisers are nice, but for most non-professional use, this is more than you need.First, you need to understand what it is. A condenser microphone requires a power source. If you are not sure that whatever you are plugging into supplies power, it probably doesn’t. It doesn’t hurt to try though, but don’t blame the microphone for not working. It will work best if you get an interface that goes between the microphone and your recording device to supply that power. In many cases, this will be a mixer with phantom power. Some computer sound cards will work, some won’t, but they all work better with a real mixer inline.But, in my case, I am using it with a Ham Radio transmitter. Several others reported good results with this mike, so I went ahead and tried it. The radio I have an Icom IC-7300, has the necessary voltage on it’s mic input, so all that I needed was an adapter to match the radio. I built one myself, but the right Heil headset adapter will work.The microphone sounds great. There is enough capability for setting the bass and treble in the radio, and the output was plenty to drive it. Those who want more fine control of settings might consider one of several mic interfaces that allow more adjustment.Is it the perfect microphone? No, but for the price, it’s darned close.

This microphone is an excellent value for studio work. Sure, you can spend 10x as much and get slightly better sound quality, but this certainly is good enough for Youtube. It’s overkill for gaming IMHO, but that’s your call. The items aside from the microphone are okay, nothing special really really, but they are functional and will certainly get you started. Recommended.UPDATE: I recalled seeing a lot of negativity on here about the included USB soundcard (“it’s garbage”), so let me tell you how it came in handy. My Windows 10 onboard realtek soundcard died unexpectedly (for reasons unrelated to this microphone) and I started looking around online for an external plug-in soundcard. Then, I recalled that I had this package’s soundcard sitting on the shelf, so I gave it a shot. It worked great! I just plugged it into a USB 2.0 port, the led lights turned on, and it completely bypassed the dead mobo soundcard and essentially replaced it without any quality loss. It now powers the full-sized receiver I use for my computer audio (yes, it’s an unusual setup) without my ears being able to notice any difference. The moral is, don’t just throw out the included USB soundcard – it could come in quite handy someday when you least expect it. It certainly solved a big problem for me in a hurry!

I saw a lot of mixed reviews here and was skeptical about buying this item until I figured out what the issue is. The microphone sounds really good, BUT if you use the mic jack-USB adapter it introduces a lot of noise into your recording. If you plug-in the microphone directly to your computer and start recording it will sound very crisp. You’ll probably want to have a direct connection if possible. If you’re using a new macbook, then you’re probably going from the mic plug, to USB, to USB-C and anytime you have additional connections it will introduce noise. Luckily, I still use an older computer with a mic input.

I own the infamous Audio Technica AT2020 for quite some time however, I was in need of another microphone since I am part of a musical band. The Zingyou Microphone was $30 at the time of purchase and it is a bargain since it comes with everything you could possibly need to get great audio. The BM-800 featured a sturdy finish and that is what I really like about it. As for the sound quality, it sounds very close to my AT2020 around 90% close, for pretty much 1/4 the price. I thought this would be a joke purchase but I have seen the YouTube reviews and I had to try it myself; I found myself in awe when I replayed the audio recordings I made. I will post a video demo of what this sounds like in comparison to my AT2020. I used this for podcasting and live instrument recordings, I think with just some minor tweaking, you can definitely get this to sound very close to the AT2020. Besides the BM-800, the kit comes with a boom arm which helps negate some unnecessary audio and also comes with the Shock Mount which adsorbs some unnecessary audio as well. The Pop Filter helps with some of that “Pop” as the name implies. If you are thinking about getting into audio but don’t have the budget to afford the main brand stuff, then this is a great option for just 1/4 the price of the Audio Technica AT2020.
Fact: You can’t use a USB mic for a ham radio that is looking for an analog input. Gladly, this microphone’s TRS connector (using this cable included) will plug in to anything that provides the DC trickle (there is no battery inside this, so the DC voltage needs to be presented to it on the connector.)And importantly, it sounds great on the air. Since you are not holding it in your hand, there is no noise due to mic movement or PTT button thump etc. Adjust your compressor in the radio to suit your tastes. And on FM it just sounds great, as much as NBFM will let you.They have done a good job with the (mechanical) suspension and isolation with the mic holder. It’s so good that it’s actually not an issue. This is independent from the microphone proper — it’s in the stand / mic holder, and it’s just great. When you are using a mic with lots of compression, like during a contest, any little sound matters and this one doesn’t cause that problem, not in the least.For those of you using the UR6QW audio processor, this mic plugs right into that front panel and works 100%
I purchased this microphone out of impulse. I really have no need for a condenser mic. The only times I actually use my mic is when I play Overwatch.HOWEVER, this does not mean the purchase was a waste. I tested the new mic with my teammates and they said they hear me a lot better now, and the mic does not pick up as much background noise as before.Condenser mics are directional, so make sure the “front” of the mic is facing your face. My first attempt at this setup was a failure: I had the mic’s top “pointed” at me. All that did was pick up all kinds of background sounds.It’s a good buy. The hanging mechanism could be tighter, but nothing I can’t solve by replace a bolt or a nut.
I bought this for a variety of recording purposes (singing, podcast, etc…), and I’m using Audacity for editing on a Dell Optiplex 360 running Windows 10. I have an old PC with an audio jack in the front, so no ringing, or other strange sounds (and I’m about to pick up another older model PC just for that feature – the more connections you put between the two devices the more you’re going to degrade your sound quality). The mic definitely picks up a certain amount of background noise (including my inhalations, but that’s just me needing to either back up or work on my breath control, honestly), but I was able to easily edit that out. Whether it was singing or speaking, the sound quality was consistent. I can get some serious volume when I sing, so I may come back and edit this later if I notice any issues. The whole rig was solid, but it did take some fiddling before I was satisified with the set up. I feel like the screw mount for the pop filter would’ve been better as a clip mount, and that where it’s attached to the base isn’t particularly secure (a little twisting fixes it, and I may take some E6000 to it). It took me a minute to figure out how to detach the attachment that you need for the arm (for the mic holder & stabilizer). I had a feeling it detached, but it wasn’t particularly clear or obvious, and I only had a relatively easy time of it because I have about a hundred tools. All that said, those are just fiddly, small critiques, and I’m super excited about the overall quality of this thing for the price. Will an expensive set up sound better? Yeah fam, probably. But for everyone out here on a budget, this can’t be beat.
I highly recommend this product by this seller. I had initial issues due to my set up, for my laptop I needed more power. The seller was very attentive and gave me some good suggestions, credited and willing to even exchange out and the seller was more than willing to remedy the situation. Turns out, I just needed to get a phantom power and a external sound card. I think depending on your computer configurations you either will NOT NEED a Phantom Power (InnoGear 1 Channel 48V Phantom Power Supply) and more powerful external sound card OR your will need one depending on your computer configurations to what hardware/software like Win10. The seller was willing to help in making sure I got it working and sure enough once I got my phantom and usb sound card (Sabrent USB Audio Stero Sound Adapter) and it was perfect in recording voice overs the main reason why purchasing this product. The computer being used is a HP PC with Wins 10, where you do have to update the settings to make sure it is selecting the right mic/headphone set up and if low sound or static in the background, then upgrade to usb sound card + 48v power phantom and you will be in business. I love it and this seller provided STELLAR customer service, thank you Fiona! 🙂 I will be getting me another one soon for my podcast.
I have purchased quite a few BM800 microphones in the past few years and I have come to realize not all BM800 microphone are made the same. As you can see this one uses the larger 16mm microphone capsule as opposed to the BM800 units with the yellow microphone capsule holder which use the smaller 10mm microphone capsules.The USB audio card is decent. Nothing fancy but it works really well on the Mac because the MacBook doesn’t have a isolated microphone input. Its shared with the headphone output so trying to use a microphone like this gets tricky. The bundled USB audio card solves that problem.This microphone does work best running off 48V phantom, but the 5v bias power from the USB adapter is ok. The spring boom arm is average, nothing super expensive or professional, but if you’re buying a $35 podcast bundle, it will get the job done to get you started into the world of podcasting. It was also nice to have the included pop-filter. This really helps you get professional audio.Overall: I totally recommend this to anyone getting started and wants to get their feet wet in the world of home recording for podcast.
