    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    * Good mic quality (when fixed: see below)
    * Good speaker quality for the size
    * Longish cable

    Cons:

    * Awful fit to the ear, doesn't stay on at all, the "holder" is very uncomfortable
    * Only mono sound, obviously
    * Jacks seem a bit flimsy

    OtherThoughts:

    I ordered this mic as a replacement for a desktop mic I have at the moment that picks up pretty much any sound in the entire house.
    The mic arrived sooner than I expected ( 2 - 3 weeks instead of 1 - 2 months), which was brilliant.
    However, when it arrived, I was having awful problems with the mic quality; there was a terrible buzzing in the recordings. Here is a collection of tests I made as I went to improve it.

    To fix the problem, I had to take the small tip off the mic, and touch the actual microphone inside. This released the static charge built up in the mic.
    I've now made a decent headset by taping it to my computer headphones. Works perfectly.

    Bottomline:

    Good mic, works well and is absolutely unbeatable for the price. There may be some problems, but the chances are they're fixable.
