It amazes me how many reviews here talk about the horrible quality, etc, when you can tell that they did not take the time to set this mic up. You can't just plug it in to the front of your PC and expect it to sound like a Sure SM-59. First of all, use the rear mic input (the cable is MORE than long enough). Secondly, go to your sounds menu in the control panel. Go to the mic set up, check the box so that you can monitor how you sound, and adjust the gain (none is probably needed). Make sure the enhancements are turned off, unless you need them for some reason. You should be fine from there, if not play with the settings. It's not rocket science.
As far as the velcro, No, it's not the best. Get some of the 3M red double stick tape, trace the circle with an xacto knife, and the mic wont go anywhere. I mean look, this mic is a little bit over $20, and to me it's better than the V-Moda headset mic. As far as consoles, I have no clue. I'd assume an adapter is needed, but for a PC, it's perfect. I'm not even sure if they claim it can even be used with a console.
Seconded. The mic is great to use on a PC and I have no complaints about it except the Velcro and holding piece. Mine broke off but its an easy fix and I'm not going to stop using a perfectly decent mic because of that.
I just did another test, and it is PERFECT. I even turned on enhancements, the noise reduction by itself, and then both together, still was great, just a little lower. I even cranked the mix gain up by +10db, and it still was not terrible. Although my voice sounded a tiny bit distorted.
I don't know if these people are trolls, have ancient PC"s, or work for the competition, but I cannot duplicate their problems. Then again maybe it's an ID10T error as we used to say back in my MIS days.
