Better than most microphones-on-a-stick – DICSONG DM-10 Condenser Microphone with Tripod Reviews

Pros:
Better sound quality than most cheap microphones-on-a-stick, and better sound quality than cheap headset microphones. I like using separate microphones since I can be picky about headphones, and I haven't found any headsets that I really like. I've tested my spoken voice using this and a number of other inexpensive microphones from DX and elsewhere, ranging from those built into headsets as well as stick microphones. This one gives the best sound quality. I tested by recording my voice as a WAV file and then playing it back. Looks more "pro" than a cheap multimedia microphone on a stick.
Cons:
Stand is a bit short. I have to lean forward sometimes to get enough volume. I could turn up gain, but then it would pick up ambient sounds. Very lightweight and can slide around. Would be nice if it had a nicer stand, maybe weighted with a rubber base so it wouldn't slide. Needs space in front of keyboard. Would be nice if stand had a base (instead of tripod) so it could slide under keyboard.
Other:
Just the microphone clip (the part that holds the microphone, and screws into the tripod) is worth the money. You can possibly use it with other hand held microphones. I use this microphone a couple times a week, and every time I use it, I will use the on/off switch. No problems yet, and I've had this for over a half year.
Bottomline:
Worth it if you have the desk space and want a stand-alone microphone on the cheap.
