What is the advantage of having a dynamic microphone?
Dynamic microphones are the more widely used microphones. This is due to them being more hardwearing, relatively inexpensive and the lack of a need for a power supply. This gives you a very durable wired microphone and a cheaper alternative for those who are starting out. Dynamic microphones are effective when used with loud sound sources that don’t contain a lot detail at a very high frequency meaning that they are perfect for use with a range of instruments such as drums and guitars.

What position does the dynamic microphone pick sound up?
This microphone has a cardioid polar pattern which means it is more sensitive to sound to the front of the unit and least sensitive at the back. The pickup is based in one direction which makes it effective for isolating unwanted sound as well as having a high resistance to feedback from speakers. This makes it a perfect microphone for using in a live performance environment such as a stage.

What would I use this microphone with?
With the microphone being dynamic and having a cardioid polar pattern, it is perfect for use for with studio work and live stage performances. It picks up loud noises without distortion and won’t be affected by feedback from your speakers when facing the right way. This makes it a good all round microphone for almost any application.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Actually a very good mic. To say it is only ???30, it is very good value for money. I use it with one of my mixers using a balanced XLR-XLR cable, however this had to be bought separately as the cable included with XLR-1/4" Which brings me on to my one suggestion for improvement, putting an XLR-XLR cable in with the mic, as well as an XLR-1/4" as this will allow both production teams and DJs to make use of this mic without any problems. Needless to say, once I start DJing, I will be using the XLR-1/4" cable provided with the mic. Quality: 9/10 Value For Money: 7/10 (little costly, but a lot of bang for your buck ) Compatability: N/A (I only tried in my mixer, in which it worked fine, but didn't test elsewhere, so therefore can't rate this). Overall: 8/10 (If you need a good quality mic for little cash, this is a very good choice)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The microphone works well but the output level is fairly low when compared with a Shure SM58.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now i won't rave about these mics - they aren't anything special, but if you essentially want a basic solid dynamic mic that's up a useable notch or three from the classic dynamic item that was typical cassette deck recording fare, then these are just that, with a low output (nothing that's an issue with a decent pre-amp - such as the ones in the mono lines of a good Tascam multi-track). I keep a pair of these around for stereo pairing use for my voice, as they are a good response match to mine - this i discovered (with advice from a then member of Maplin staff) many years ago when i needed to find a decent not-pricey dynamic to use with a now very forgotten Guillemot Maxi Sound 64 sound card, which was (as were the Maxi Sound series) fairly unique in having a low impedence dynamic mic orientated mic input rather than the typical high-z condensor/electret orientated mic input that most cards had (Soundblaster mostly, or clones of). Needless to say, matched to a low-z input with a reasonable preamp (which the card had) and a suitable voice to make the best of the mic, it made MSN audio chat and early Skype usage brilliant as opposed to my low/mid range voice sounding weak and thin on the usual electrec mic fair. In fact, back in the day, when i used voice chat with that hardware combo, people used to mention 'broadcast' sound to describe the audio, and swore i had a processor/compressor in line. The fact, simply, was the mic was a good match to my voice and a good match to the audio characteristics of the card's input and also was a good telephony bandwidth/comms use mic in terms of it's sensitivity/response. So maybe not everyone's cup of tea, but if a lower output but cheaper (half -> third cheaper depending on the exact comparision model) subsitute for a Shure vocal orientated dynamic, then this is a nice item (if it hadn't been pointed out to me by the utterly knowledgable staff member, i would have ended up buying a Shure, for which the cost would have been overkill for my purposes then). Either way you look at it, it's a cheap but effective starting point if your voice works well with dynamic mics and need a step up the ladder from cassette deck grade stuff - and it'll last out (build wise) long enough to save up for a Shure (and then keep this 'cheapie' as a backup) should you still need to go the distance of a Shure item :D It cost me about ???30 going back to '90 something and the spare one i bought more recently to create a stereo pair cost about the same (in fact, i don't think the price has changed in all these years) - and given they were bought for and applied where they worked well, that made them pretty good value in my mind - still in use with the Tascam for radio/podcasting, so they can't be too shoddy, wouldn't you think?

Would this work connected to my Pioneer Xdj-rx? 

Asked by: Concord
The microphone connects via an industry standard 6.35mm (1/4" jack), as long as your device features a microphone input of that specification then it should be fine.

Can Prosound HDM be used with IK Mult iRig Pre many thanks Nick

Asked by: nico
This should work fine, however you would need to change the cable as the one included is an XLR to 6.35mm Jack cable, rather than XLR to XLR.
