The product description seems to lack the fact that there is a low/high gain switch on the back of the microphone that allows you to switch between the noted -15 and -33 dBFS. This was also $149.00 at the original 2018 release according to the Beyerdynamic website. This current price is actually $10 cheaper than directly from Beyerdynamic or Amazon, so shipping is the only thing to compare here. TLDR: The microphone itself sounds great and has a usable front interface, but you should ditch the included stand for a microphone arm, and make sure to buy a 3/8" male to 5/8" female mic screw adapter since it is threaded at 3/8". The windshield will probably break if you take it off often or bump into it hard, but I have some alternatives listed below.

I have this microphone and it can be pretty nice but probably not right out of the box. The front audio port has imperceptible latency for hearing your own voice, and the mix knob paired with the volume knob allows you to have all of your audio control right on the microphone if you plan to use the headphone port. This is great for monitoring your voice for recordings in real-time and lets you hear that the sound quality is pretty good. Of course, the volume and mix knobs work as expected, allowing on-the-fly balancing between your own voice and computer audio. Actually, it is also compatible with the Playstation 5 as well, although you would need to be sitting near the console to plug into it with the included microphone cable and use it comfortably. This was more of a gimmick for me though, and I never tried it again after testing that it worked and sounded good to others. The microphone could be used on other devices because it has no software to download. Unfortunately, the two gain settings will require you to either be very close to the microphone (~2 inches or less) for proper low-gain audio or have a nearly silent room to avoid picking up background audio or typing on high-gain. Therefore, the included stand is pretty useless. I bought mine with a microphone arm though in a bundle, and I recommend that you do the same if you decide to buy this. Make sure to purchase a 3/8" male to 5/8" female mic screw adapter if you buy a microphone arm threaded at 5/8", as the mic is threaded in 3/8". The included wind filter broke after about 3 months of my using it normally, but accidentally getting out of my chair and having it spin into the windshield, breaking one side of the plastic connector tabs. I wouldn't say the chair was even spinning very fast, but I knew it snapped the second I heard it. Two alternative pop filters I bought and work great are: ◉ Rode WS2 Microphone Pop Filter/Wind Shield ($20/$17.40 on sale as of writing, full foam cover) ◉ PEMOTech Metal Mesh & Foam & Etamine Layer Mic Windscreen ($15/$11 on sale, similar to original filter) The Rode WS2 pop filter is honestly better than the included windscreen or the PEMOTech windscreen. The reason for this is that the Rode WS2 slightly covers the bright orange mute button light. This is nice because when the microphone is muted, it blinks to let you know, and my god is it distracting. Overall, I would say it's a decent microphone but do your own research. While the price is certainly much more compelling now, the market is always changing, and you'll want to buy some additional stuff to go with it. It's also incredibly fun switching into high gain to become way too loud for comedic purposes while talking in voice calls. Also, this bendy part that comes with the microphone and screws into the bottom is kinda neat to get different angles on the mic.
