A Great microphone that has lasted me a few years so far with no issues what so ever. Its light and a very nice modern looking design.
The actual microphone stick can detach from the base and you can use it as a handheld device. The stick itself is pretty solid and cannot be manipulated so if you want to attach it to your computer then you would want to maneuver so that you can speak directly into it. Unfortunately due to the product not having a ear piece you cannot use it as a headset which may put some of buying due to wanting to use it of Skype.
Considering the price it is amazingly reliable and a very durable microphone. It is very good for recording your voice ( particularly for YouTube ) and if you wish to record live music it is ok for that but you may want a better mic for that. I have used it both on laptop and computer and it seems entirely universal.
It doesn't have wireless capability but overall its a great mic.
For a desktop microphone this is hard to beat, it can be bought for under £5 at most places and in need of a microphone I decided to try it out.
The microphone itself is on a long stick which annoyingly cannot be manipulated into different positions so this is defiantly a desktop microphone, so you will more likely have to adapt yourself to the microphone instead of the other way around. It also comes with a detachable base so you can have it on your desk or hold it in your hand for a more interview style approach.
If you want to record music this is not the microphone for you, while the quality is perfectly acceptable for speech and internet chat it won't hold up so well for music I'd suggest you spend a bit more money and get yourself a quality microphone dedicated to music recording.
For podcasting or internet chat this microphone is a good choice, the quality is good but if you intend to use this other places then your desk it won't hold up as well due to the non-adjustable stick.
A very fine computer microphone that has lasted me seven years so far with no issues of compatibility, control, volume or quality. It is light, with a very sleek design.
The microphone stick itself can be detached from its base and used as a hand held device but whilst it can be entirely dismantled with ease (so that it is just a mic on the end of a wire,) the stick itself is solid and cannot be manipulated, so should the user wish to physically attach it to their computer, they would probably find it necessary to manoevre themselves so that they are speaking directly into it, as well as using the provided pad for doing so,. -- Due to its lack of malleability, and absence of an earphone, it is not possible to use this product as a headset.
For what it is, it is an outstandingly reliable and durable piece of equipment which is perfect for recording voices, and audio conferencing. If you wish to record more sophisticated audio such as live music or samples, I would recommend a more expensive microphone. This is only really any good for recording and sending speech (but is excellent at doing so.)
I have used it on many different computers with different codec packs and it seems to be entirely universal. It uses a standard audio line-in jack and does not need its own drivers.
It does not have a wireless capability.
