What would I use this microphone with?
This microphone is a tie clip design which connects directly to a piece of clothing, making it hands free. Its 6.35mm connector and long cable allows it to be connected directly to a mixer or amplifier for it to be easily used in a recording. The microphone is battery powered, allowing it to be easily used without relying on phantom power from a mixer or amplifier. It can be quickly set up and used for many different styles of recording such as a seminar, interview or to record a dictation during a practical task.

What is the advantage of having a condenser microphone?
Condenser microphones are the most common type of microphones for recording audio. They are often used in recording studios as they have a greater ability to reproduce all the audio of an instrument or voice. Using phantom power from the 6.35mm socket, condenser microphones usually have a louder output but can be more sensitive to loud sounds.

What position does the condenser microphone pick up sound from?
This omnidirectional microphone picks up audio from the direction it is pointing at. This means you have a better recording as there is less background noise to interfere. This will save on editing time and will allow you to have a higher quality recording without using additional equipment to alter it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yes, looks comfortable but it's not good at all. The voice is not so clear how I expected to be.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good! I just bought one and tried it clipped to the soundhole of an acoustic guitar. The sound was fine and I am particular about these things. I went straight back and bought another to use on a home-made acoustic stomp box. Perfect. As they are omnidirectional they pick up sound from all directions (The explanation provided here is wrong in that respect) so they might be difficult to use on a noisy stage. But for quiet gigs they should be fine. Also the leads are thin and could easily be damaged on stage. Maybe use rubber mats or tape them down. Howard 15 Apr 2017

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'Mic - ing up' acoustic musical instruments I initially bought two of these mics to use on my concertina. They worked as well as some 5 times the price. I recently bought 4 more to mic up my melodeon with excellent results. Great for acoustic instruments. I use 'Velcro' to attach them without damaging the instruments.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I went into a Maplin store and purchased this product after seeing it on the website, I even asked in store does this work with an iPhone, they replied 'yes, it should.' but it doesn't even work with any phone!

This mic has a detachable cable but do you have to use the cable attached in order for the mic to work or can it work both attached using the cable and unattached using blue tooth?

Asked by: Annie
This has no Bluetooth function, the detachable cable portion is an extension for the mic's fixed cable.
