* Good mic quality (when fixed: see below) * Good speaker quality for the size * Longish cable
* 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
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. https://soundcloud.com/mang0/xty-mic-test-progression-of 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.
Good mic, works well and is absolutely unbeatable for the price. There may be some problems, but the chances are they're fixable.
