People often buy this mic as a good value directional mic. I purchased one a few months back so I can get decent sound off my tiny cam and thought I would venture an opinion.
Sound quality - good, suprisingly good. Dont get me wrong, not spine chillingly good like my 800 quid when new sony (200 to me on e bay) but impressive at the price.
Directionality - very good, as good as my longer sony, well seems that way in use.
Thats the best bits over,
Build quality - acceptable to poor. The bits that havent broken are hard plastic, but the shoe broke off after a few weeks (easily glued) and the rubber bands are all perishing fast.
Ahh, the rubber bands, well you see it come equipped with a toy version of the isolation system used on proper isoltion mounts. Looks pants, does absoloutely nothing except mean that the mic wobbles about is a daft way. Soon to be removed.
Microphonic - very, but hey it's cheap so that is okay and you dont really touch a mic like this during use.
I strongly reccomend all mic purchasers in this market to save up a few more quid and get the sen 300, and they didnt pay me to say that.
