Customer Reviews

after many years of buying crap cheaply made headsets So, after many years of buying crap cheaply made headsets, I decided to do headphones and a desktop microphone.This mic is amazing, no pops or cracking sound. My friend told me my voice was crystal clear. I have not tried to test the distance, but, I did have my girlfriend come in the room, and my friends heard the door open and our conversation. However, the sensitivity can be increased and decreased through a pc operating system. Overall, the sound quality is amazing. I've heard my voice played back through videos I record on my pc and it's clear, and awesome. SO glad I chose to get a separate mic. For the price, can't beat it.The shock that comes with the mic is also nice, and made of metal. 5Great upgrade from Dynamic Microphones I upgrade from a decent $20 dynamic mic bought off amazon a year ago to this CAD Condensor mic, and i have to say i noticed the difference instantly. The mixer i'm using is a Behringer QX1202usb with 48v phantom power(require for.this mic) and with the old dynamic Mic had a hum in the background. When i plugged this phatom powered condensor mic in i was pleased that the hum was now gone. I guess thats what happens when you spend alittle more money for a half decent mic. My voice sounds great on my podcast with no static or humming behind my voice. One warning for amature podcasters, beware this mic is sensative! It easily picks up tv or radio or fan or other background noises. You will need a quiet enviroment. However this is a plus if you have a desk stand like i do and don't feel like always leaning forward to speak. Your mouth can be 12 to 18 inches away and this will pick you up just fine. One word on the mount...it fits the mic well for rights side mounting, not sure how you could hang the mic from a boom using the cradle, however if your 5/8" boom/mic stand's mount is right side up it will work just fine. Im using the same desk top mic stand i had my dynamic mic clipped to. I like this mic so much i bought two extra's for my co-host and for when i have guests on my podcast. 5Awesome mics for podcasting, video narration Relatively awesome mic for the price point. I had been doing research on condenser microphones withing this price range for a few months before deciding to bite the bullet, so to speak, and purchase a set of these.Build Quality: Initial reaction, pretty solid. They have a nicely balanced weight to them and everything seems to be put together fairly well. Because I'm curious and ever the tinkerer I decided to take one apart and check out the inner workings. Sadly, inside the craftsmanship seems to take a small hit. Specifically, there was an ever so slightly loose screw in one, but that could just be from the shipping. And the components and wires inside aren't super high quality. I wouldn't say it's a deal breaker though, considering the true test for a mic is in the sound quality, but keep in mind you do get what you pay for in terms of build.Sound Quality: Much nicer than I expected. Again, these mics are fairly inexpensive, but they sound great. I'm running them through a Behringer Xenyx, but even on completely stock settings the sound quality is quite warm and rich. I was really surprised, I was half expecting them to come out sort of tinny and that I'd have to really EQ them to make them sound nicer but that was not the case.Final Say: If you're in the market for some inexpensive mics for a small podcast or some voice over work, you could do much worse than these. 4This Microphone Has No Competition This microphone is absolutely amazing. As a professional musician, I've always gone to recording studios for any production. You almost always see very expensive microphones, between $4,000 and $10,000. Sure the quality of going to a studio with these microphones is really good, but you also pay a good amount of money for the production.I have recently begun dabbling in recording and have tried three different microphones up to the $500 price range. After lots of research and reading product reviews, I decided to give the CAD GXL2200 a try. I've been using it mainly for vocals, but also for acoustic instruments. I am completely amazed by the quality of this microphone. The range, clarity and warmth of this mic is perfect for vocals, whether for song production or for live radio, but is absolutely amazing for acoustic instruments. At this price, I wouldn't expect this quality, but I would rate this at least comparable to a $500 microphone. 5unreal sound for the price I was a little hesitant to purchase this mic at first because there weren't a lot of reviews on it and the price was low. I figured that I'd give it a go and much to my delight it delivers. No it's not a Neumann, it's not an AKG, it's not a fancy pants boutique mic. It's a mic that delivers good sound at an unreal price. It records well for electric amplified guitar as well as acoustic guitar. I have not yet tried it for vocals or drums but I'm sure that it will stand up and do the job. When I recorded my acoustic guitar I noticed that it has a brilliant top end that lets the strings sing clear and clean with a touch of sparkle. It also captures enough low end to let you know that you've got some bottom rolling for your sound. The construction of the mic seems good and the appearance is amazing. CAD even gives you a cleaning cloth to wipe off finger prints. The shock mount is solid. It looks a little thin but when you touch it you know that it's going to hold the mic just fine. This mic doesn't have a pad and only hosts one sound pattern but it delivers. The input connection is solid so you don't have to worry about a shorted connection. There are a lot of mics out there and a lot of them can be used in a variety of different situations. This one is a good choice for many. I don't know if anyone has ever recorded a Grammy winning vocal with this mic but it's not out of the realm of possibility. rock on. 4Really great sounding Mic. Looks great too! I've used many condenser mics over the past few years and this one is right near the top of the list. It's not gonna be the same quality and sound as a $1000 or more mic but honestly, it's really good and I purchased it for under $100 on Amazon. I now use this mic more than any other that I own which includes several of the AT mics and my rode mic. If you can afford this mic, get it. I don't think you will be disappointed. 5nice 4 the price cardioid large diaphragm [1" dia] true condenser mic it's a basic cardioid large diaphragm [1 inch dia] w/bass tilt true condenser mic that c/w/ adequate shockmount cage. it c/w/ zipper leatherette bag 4 the mic.pros:bargain price[less than $60.] mic is good build quality & the shock mount is ok 4 the price.mic easily opened 2 change base tilt, the push button is clearly labeled & works smoothly.works well plugged directly in2 zoom R16 digital recorder phantom powered mic input.works well w/innogear 48volt phantom power supply jacked in2 zoom R6 non phantom powered mic inputs.works well w/cad pop filterit sounds [2 me] like it should given the published frequency response.the included mic description & frequency response [ well printed on coated poster stock ] is clear & gives u the info u need 2 use & operate the mic & is presented in the standard format established by the importers of the primo german makers like akg ,beyer or sennheiser, 40+ yrs ago. there is no poorly translated/presented chinese 2 english on or in the box it came in.cad is american based mic manufacturer w/a large line of american made mics, making this mic in china so price is quite low & qc seems good.cons:shock-mount needs washers in the angle adjustment joint so it can b adjusted smoothly, tightened firmly & locked in position.shock-mount mic clamp needs thicker felt so grip on mic body is secure enuf 2 hang mic upsidedown in overhead applications.box it comes in is very thin w/no foam or bubble pack. it is not heavy enuf 2 use 4 storage like the heavyweight box that samson mics come in [& samson gives u a zipper closed fitted case that is very nice].it wasn't free[ ! ]. 4Don't let the $59.00 bucks scare ya! In my radio business, and my 25 year singing career, you can bet I have used a lot of studio condenser mics. My husband had done many months of research and along with my advice purchased the MXL 990's for our studio here and they are truly stellar! Hell, even "The Stern Show " uses them!Anyway, we needed some variety hubby said, we needed a "collection" for the many different voice types we have in studio as guest hosts and show guests come and go all the time.Well, I suggested he go with the CAD GXL 3000's as they certainly in my opinion are one of the best out there. Well, hubby with all his "tech specs" and lingo said that the response from these 2200's are VERY close to the 990'sWell, against my wishes purchased these as well as the 3000's and let me tell you, they are excellent. VERY close to the 990's but I feel there is more of a high end punch with these and it's a very good mic.PROS:Construction is solid, with a small but very good shockmount. Excellent quality finish applied to the outer casing for a nice look and I'm sure a long life.The sound is as I said crisp, clear with very nice highs and mids.When I tested, we ran through just our mixer, with no compression of effects and a small amount of EQ as we run our shows. All in all a very nice addition to our studio collection.CONS:The ONLY con I have was the packaging. Just a thin cardstock box with nothing more than small plastic airbags around it for shipping. It does come with a vinyl zip case for the mic itself, but nothing for the shockmount. Not a huge issue, but when compared with the MXL 990 that comes with a solid plastic road case, heavy foam insulation and a very nice quality presentation along with the useability of professional grade portability, it's a bit weak.Other than packaging, this is a solid studio condenser for voice and we highly recommend it! 5Great value This mic is much heavier than I expected, which is a good thing. i think it will take quite the beating.The sound quality is fantastic on vocals and acoustic instruments. The selectable cardioid patterns, HP filter, and pad selection are a rarity at this price range, not to mention the decent quality shock mount included.I assume if you are shopping for a condenser mic you already know this, but just in case... All condenser mics require phantom power, so make sure your mixer/interface/etc supply it, otherwise it won't work.Also, my inexperience of patterned mics made it slightly confusing to figure out where the 'front' of the mic was. If you position it with the pattern selection switch directly facing you (or the source of sound) that is the 'front.' I assume now that this is standard positioning, however I couldn't speak to other mics. When in doubt, just record a quick test, turning it 90 or 180 degrees and see which sounds 'right' when you have it set to reject sounds from the rear.I do wish it came with a better case, like my MXL-603 small diaphragm mics came with. The leather (or pleather, not sure right now) case is ok, but provides no real protection from drops, and doesn't house the shock mount, just the mic itself. At this price though, I can't take away a star for that.This mic is well worth the standard asking price, and if you find it on sale like I did, snatch it up! 5Great mic for the money I really can not say enough about this little baby, but that it seems a gem of this modern industrial age that you can get a microphone that sounds this well for only $56.00 US. The microphone sounds better for record9ing than the $300 Shure mic that I have which is more of a live mic for playing out. I purchased for I took some time off recording and playing music and was getting back into recording, but did not want to spend $5-$600 bucks on a mic if I feud that I was not using it a lot.I read reviews about this mic and went for it, and am just passing the message along to other budget minded musicians, or what ever your need is for a mic you will not be disappointed. The only thing I wonder is how can they make such a good quality piece, ...Asia.Who cares where its made, its a good mic for a few dollars, and is a nice addition to many a home studio/podcast u name it. 5
