Awful attempt to copy other device designs. Considering it's a massdrop made item they might have considered that some of us may be using hd6xx's, but cheap 3m velcro dots are a no go with those cans. Audio quality is pretty good for the price. Pro: playback audio is 7.5-8/10 good for the price...if the mic stays in place,. Cons: well everything else about this thing is a con imo. Feels, looks, and is cheap all around. Proprietary cable, have fun replacing this when it enevetably breaks. Extremely thin cable with about 10 feet of unmanageable line that will catch on everything and kill itself fast under any rolling chair. When it sticks to your headset it wont hold in place. The list goes on. (Edit: after a few months volume slider shorts and cuts audio, have replaced with a few different cables and lengths without volume control and still feels lackluster connection wise when used on larger cans. Cable tends to move the mic position with the slightest movement of the input cable, constantly repositioning mic which slouches on it's own unless you readjust every time you reattech it, I dont leave the mic attatched when I store my headphones.) TLDR: dont waste your money, save another 25 and get something more legitimate and user friendly. Not my happiest purchase but serves as a backup now.

Bruh. The raw audio quality is far superior than most gaming headsets. The arm is aluminium, how does that feel cheap? There's basically no processing. If the noise reduction sucks, it's because your motherboard audio sucks. You talk about replacing the cable? It's 25 bucks. I'll just get a new one. IF the cable ever breaks, which shouldn't really happen. If you wanted a ModMic Wireless sort of product, then go buy it. Have fun paying 6 times more for the same audio.

As noted mic quality is fine. In terms of feeling cheap adding a cable with no cable management that is extremely long and thin will snag and break, see majority of reviews on build quality and lifespan of cheap parts. As for my hardware, it doesnt matter what I use to process the input mic quality is the same. My motherboard is a non issue as all other mics process audio input fine, has been tested on 3 PC's one of which is a new build. Again audio quality is not the issue. If you want to pay to tape on your mic might as well buy a better quality standing mic and do the same. The point is to be able to turn your hifi headset into a modular system, not just used for gaming but for calls etc and be able to easily remove said mic when you want. I'd rather not have to replace the proprietary cable WHEN it breaks. Catch any of it in an office chair wheel or snag any of the 10 feet of cheap 24 gauge and that's what you will be doing. The connection points are the biggest flaw when it comes to signal distortion. The arm is aluminium, which is designed to bend and hold its shape, which it accomplishes for about 5 minutes before having to be readjusted. For $25 more I'd take a mic with the same quality, less hassle and more robust build quality. If I wanted a wireless option I would have bought it. My review is my opinion based on my experience with the product for people to take into consideration before they decide to buy it themselves. I'm happy you like it, maybe write a positive review about how much you like it. To offset the rest of the negative reviews. Or you can just speculate as to my hardware and audio setup as well as use case for this product.

Makes sense. I've ordered my own, as it doesn't make much practical sense to use a Desktop Blue microphone for gaming and Discord all the time. We'll see once it arrives. I do have concerns about the Velcro mounting system. I might have to buy some sort of magnet mounting system separately. Thankfully my Audio Technicas should have no problem with the 3M adhesive.

bro, have you actually tested them? I got my friends and it sounded great on my headphones, and the cable is fine to me. My adhesive pads did fall off but its easy to get more. iF you can't find them online just message massdrop themselves and ask for a new pair of adhesive pads.

yes I actually have, and have you seen the videos too? It provides crisp audio that rivals that of the Modmic 5. You seem like the only one dissing on this. If you have nothing nice to say then don't say it.

I guess you missed the part where I stated it was my opinion, that the mic quality is fine, and actually after having more time with it feel it's a good sounding mic for the price, I could care less about watching video reviews on a product I own, that makes 0 sense. However having now put in a few months of testing I stand by my objective review of all the other components. The volume slider cuts audio completely if I slide it to max, I now have to mess with the slide position to get input audio return. I did have some nice things to say, but honestly if someone doesnt have a good experience with a product, or even a part of a product, I would hope that they leave a critical review so I can weigh the benefits and make my own decisions. Sometimes people dont like things others do, the whole point of having a system to review things is to respond objectively about their personal experience.

After more time with the mic I'm adding 1 star, have found that for the price mic quality is very good, stand by my original review of other components, have swapped out the now malfunctioning volume slider cable, still feel that spending the extra 30 to 40 dollars for a higher end mounting and cable system is worth it.
