Good mic when on sale
This is a good mic, but it is only worth the price when on sale. At $50 I don't believe it's a good deal. You can find these used and in good condition for ~$20, and when it's on sale here at $9 it's a great mic.
Comparing it to other microphones I've tried, recently I'd say from worst to best it goes V-moda BoomPro X < Drop Mic < V-moda BoomPro original. There are caveats for each, of course, but that's overall and most importantly mic sound quality.
The V-moda BoomPro X is basically a closed back version of a mic, only pics up from one direction and makes it sound muffled/narrow/compressed. This is good if you like playing games at a high volume with openback headphones, as not as much noise coming from the headphones will be picked up. It's the nicest cable of the bunch, with discrete controls and a nice cloth-like jacket for the cable. The microphone boom arm for the mic isn't very strong and sags which is very annoying.
The Drop mic is a step up on audio quality for the mic, sounds more open and higher quality all around picking up more of the frequencies with a cleaner output. The cable is fine, but is a plastic coated cable, smooth and soft though. Comes with a pop filter, and an extension cable that splits the mic and audio. I like this one for open back headphones, but at high volumes the mic can pick up sounds.
The original V-moda BoomPro microphone has amazing sound quality, like outstanding. Sounds super natural and very clean. Compared to the other two, it's in a League of its own... But there are downsides. The cable is very long, and the inline controls are bulky as hell. The microphone picks up a lot of noise, as it is an open back style microphone. Only really recommend for playing at low volumes with openback headphones or with closed back headphones. The cable is shielded with the same cloth like material as the V-moda BoomPro X.
That's my opinion, good microphone at the discounted prices, $50 is tooooo much. The V-moda BoomPro X is $45 which is even less worth it in my opinion, but the original V-moda BoomPro for $35 is a great value.
Would recommend to a friend.
