Picked them up for live vocals. Mics are excellent. They look nice, feel nice, and put out good sound. The best description for Shure SM58's is that they are solid all-around. They aren't mind-blowingly amazing at anything (except maybe durability?), but they are solid for just about everything. I'd say these mics are the industry

I am so pleased with this purchase! I’ve been considering this microphone for years and finally decided to go for it after reading up more on it. I’ve been singing and recording and was becoming frustrated when I noticed static/distortion during playback when I’d hit big, high notes and a just a lot of the warmth and nuances missing

Look, this is it. The 58 is THE microphone and has been since the 1950s. If you don’t know microphones, then the best research you can do it to go to YouTube and watch any live performance of any band or singer. Chances are, you’re going to see an SM58 (or the wireless version.). The thing is just downright iconic. The dynamic range

I use these headphones for PC gaming. I recently switched to these from "gaming" branded headphones, and the difference is mind blowing. I have a $160 SteelSeries headset, as well as similarly priced headsets from other brands (Sennheiser, Razer), and I can't believe what I was missing. There are sounds in games that I didn't

I'm a big fan of wired, but have tried several Bluetooth buds and over ears in hopes to find a decent Bluetooth solution. Like others I've been disappointed by poor quality audio, poor comfort, short battery life, not loud enough, etc.

Being an Audio-Technica fan, I had to grab these when they came out. So far so good.. the

Alright, so chances are, you're looking at buying the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x most likely because of one of three reasons: A friend that has never listened to genuinely good headphones before is telling you that these are

There haven't been many reviews out there that cover the differences between the different versions available of this product. I found myself in the possession of both the 80ohm and 250ohm so hopefully this can be helpful to someone!

I initially bought these headphones to replace my Sony MDR-7506s which had broken due to me mishandling them.

Sound:

I mainly use these headphones for music production, recording, and general listening. The frequency response on them is very clear and neutral. What I like most about these headphones is that they

Summary:
The 2i2 3rd Gen is a solid advancement to the product line. Generation III helps this brand to remain at the forefront of audio interfaces. I had sold a previous interface and found myself in a pinch where I needed to get something recorded and produced within 48 hours. I found myself with a 2i2 3rd Gen and it was

I play guitar in my spare time and don't know the first thing about getting set up with a DAW or the logistics of recording my music or even getting it to play through my headphones.

We use these for a community radio station, and has used the 1st and 2nd gen 2i2s for years without problems. They fail after 2-3 years of 24x7 use, but that seems reasonable.

However, the 3rd gen switches to a USB C connector with lightning, which requires a separate driver. In order to deliver this driver, the interface

Before going into the details of the review it's important to point out that these speakers are actually designed as "near-field" monitors, not home-audio loudspeakers. I've seen a handful of complaints about lack of bass reponse, hollow sound etc.

Near-field monitors are designed to reproduce sound with a *flat*

Stopped working within two days. They sounded great and worked fine up until then.. I went outside for an hour and left them on. When I came back in I heard a rustling noise upstairs. It was the passive monitor. Turn on some music and find the passive monitor doesn't work period. Mind they were working just fine before I left the room.

I've always wanted to be able to record my guitars, acoustic and electric, and had no idea how it could be done, or what I would need. Did lots of research on the Internet and found a site that recommended the Zoom H4N Pro 2016.

I've only had this less than a week now, and am slowly learning all it's functions and capabilities.

My friends and I started getting into making youtube videos so I started buying gear I needed peice by peice. The one thing we noticed that put a damper on producing great quality videos was lack of amazing audio.

This is my fourth Zoom H4 in the past ten years. They keep improving them and I keep upgrading, and it's been worth it every time. I shoot video so I use a Zoom H4 to record the audio. I do mostly interviews so the noise floor on the older H4's has sometimes been a problem for me. When I pulled this out of the box the first thing I

Works great for a quick set up table for a micro DJ system. I use with a MacBook Pro, a laptop stand, and a small DJ controller. Table top plate is the perfect size for this application 20 x 16.

This is a fantastic little laptop/projector stand. I'm using it to hold my laptop in front of my indoor bike/trainer so I can watch TV and movies as I ride. It's plenty big enough to hold my Surface 4 with room to spare on each side. It's easily wide enough to hold a 17" laptop if needed. It came unassembled, but I was able to put it

If you are someone who likes to record music, do podcast, or do voiceovers this microphone is absolutely great for those things. The microphone comes with a complete kit that you usually wont get with other microphones.

I make YouTube videos and podcasts several times a week. I have a plethora of renowned microphones--Rode, Neumann, AKG, Oktava, Warm Audio, etc. Let's be honest--the Fifine mic does not challenge any of those.

And it's not meant to.

Indeed, anyone who is considering buying any of the sub-$200 Blue microphones

I'm a musician/singer/songwriter and produce/engineer my own music with 3 album releases, yet being independent I have no claim to commercial funding so every piece of equipment I buy is a precious investment.

I had been looking at this mic for a couple years to upgrade from my Shure SM58. Finally pulled the trigger and bought, right away I did a shootout of the SM7B vs the SM58.

The microphone's "natural" sound is a thud to my ears. You need to buy additional equipment and dbx processors to make it sound great. I prefer to start with a microphone that is dynamic across the spectrum BEFORE any processing takes place, I returned this Shure, spent an extra $100.00, and got the EV RE 27....huge difference

Works perfectly! it's exactly as described. For the clamp, I would recommend you DO NOT attach it to the main stand of the blue yeti. Rather, attach it to a desk, or a secondary stand you bought - it's much more stable in those locations and doens't scratch the beautiful surface of the mic. :) Not to mention, if you log into the Aokeo

I use this microphone for a podcast as well as a youtube channel and it fits my deeper voice very well. It has a rich and warm tone that I used to need to do a lot of equalization to get back when I used my old NW700. This blows that one out of the water. I would suggest getting a pop filter or windscreen when buying this as well to block

I have been using a Zoom H4N audio recorder for years and finally decided it was time for me to add a real mic to make the most of it. I'm not technically a professional recording engineer or musician but I do a lot of recording and audio editing. I sing in a local ensemble and produce very high quality YouTube videos for them as well.

It was between this one and the RB3. I chose the DDJ 400 because it came with rekordbox software license bundled and it was designed to be as similar as possible with the professional Pioneer club CDJs out there.

The terrible Rekordbox software only analyzes music correctly about 25% of the time, so unless you're wanting to manually set the first beat and research and enter the track BPM and key for nearly every single song you play, find another controller. Or find some software like Virtual DJ 8 to use with this controller (which will cost

Pros: Lightweight, easy to setup for use, fairly responsive pads/platters.

Cons: Dead/Unuseable headphone jack right out of the box, awful tech support from Pioneer. I only ever got to talk to a robot on Facebook messenger, no one ever replied to my email, or forum

I was skeptical of this mic despite the glowing reviews - even the limited reviews on youtube are good, with most finding that the limitations of the microphone are far fewer than it's benefit - which, frankly, is it's price. I picked it up for $24 dollars on a flash sale, but it's well worth the normal price for how it sounds.

My review is a bit unconventional for this product as this microphone mostly seems to be used for creating music, and I'm not a musician; I'm just a gamer who hates having to wear those uncomfortable gaming headsets during raid.
