I was in the market for an upgrade to an old Logitech USB microphone that I had laying around and checked out places that review gear online. As typical I check out Wirecutter's reviews and this was their best budget pick.
I decided to get this one as an Amazon Warehouse Deal and while the listing reported it as 'minor cosmetic damage to accessories' the tripod itself was actually broken, as that is I didn't knock it any stars for that particular issue though I have no experience with a 'stock' tripod so take that into account. I can see how others would be complaining about a flimsy tripod. BTW For those of you who experience tripod issues the NEEWER DESKTOP TRIPOD ( https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01KSR0VNK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ) functions as a suitable replacement part (and it's probably a bit more sturdy as its metal rather than plastic).
Despite the fact it lists a 'Mute Button' I could not find any such button as of writing this review. I believe they're counting the fact that you can adjust the microphone gain knob to basically nothing as a 'mute button'. This is not an ideal way to do things as messing with the microphone gain levels as a means of muting is less than optimal for recording purposes as well as for streaming or podcasting purposes as touching the microphone gain knob to do such may result in changing levels and making things seem louder or quieter after using it this way.
My friend says it sounds better than my previous microphone. Though I haven't done extensive testing with it yet so expect updates though I'm quite pleased with it.
