I did not use this for gaming. If you are setting up a home studio then this is perfect for you. If you don't have budget constraint then by all means go buy a $1000 one but if you are on a budget or just starting out then purchase this and save a lot of money. This is a really good mic that can actually record musical instruments crisp and clear. Noise cancelling is above average. If you need a more crisp sound then you can use audacity to remove unnecessary minor background noises from the recording. Highly recommended for podcasts or YouTube videos Sound quality is really really good. Check out few reviews on YouTube, you'll know if it's meant for you.
I didn't get this to replace my high end microphones, but increase the quality of my conference calls. For that, it works fine, especially at this price point. This "looks" like a pro level microphone. The audio isolation is very good. You won't hear microphone rattle. The pop suppressor also prevents popping on "P's" and"S's". I do some broadcast recording and I can hear some distortion when I am close to this microphone, even though I am not clipping. It's hard to get that nice base with the proximity effect without getting close. The record sampling is 44.1kHz at 16 bit (CD Quality).
I would give this five stars but the thread on the pop filter got stripped as soon as I put it on and now it is stuck a minor issue but besides that an amazing first mic for my streaming set up! I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a beginner mic
Excellent for the price, USB set up quickly and easily. I am amazed by the sound quality for price and I have no problem in recommended this mic. Purchased from amazon and arrived same day !!! Perfect replacement mic for my older SAMSON mic. I use to record the audio on my product demos and you tube videos.
Im using it for gaming and it can be used for music recording
