Rated 5 out of 5 by Quackington from Great, affordable micPrimary use: oral history.Bought these mics to replace some Shure WL51s that have been giving me some problems, and these are much better at picking up sound at lower levels of gain on the recorder. Tested them on a Zoom H5, which gets a lot noiser at gains of 6 and above, and that needed a 7 or more for the Shures. It picks up the ATs fine a bit under 6. (Incidentally, tried them briefly on a Tascam DR100-mkII and these mics picked up with no trouble at a gain of 3).These are bigger than the Shures, especially with the windscreen on, but I'm not producing theatre. I'm interviewing people and want good audio. Audio is clear, low noise, and the mics are well built with a pretty long mic cord. You'll need your own XLR cable to connect the mic to the recorder. Each mic runs off phantom power or a single AA battery, and I've been using the battery to extend the life of the Zoom H5. I may update this later to let you know how long the battery lasts.Only minor issue I have: the battery fits a bit too snugly in its compartment. Nice to not have it rattling around, but it's a little bit of work to remove it.They are a pretty amazing buy at this price. Funding is always a big concern in public history, and it's really great to buy two mics for the price of one higher end mic, while not losing much that your ears will be able to detct. With these and a Zoom H5 or a Tascam DR-100mkII, you can put together a very good field recording kit for $ (I'm including the mic cables in the cost; not including the memory card or batteries).
