Deep, rich, vocal tones. A podcaster's dream.
As a podcaster, I could immediately tell the difference between the MXL 990 and my previous condenser mic. This one has such rich tones! It is sensitive, however, and the pop filter I bought with it really isn't filtering out my plosives. I have it pointed DOWN to reduce room noise and it works perfectly. I have it plugged into an audio interface before it goes into my laptop. Highly recommended, great mic for the price!
5Fantastic Entry Level Mic - Highly Recommend
As a hobby I do some youtube game recordings and I'm a bedroom guitar player.I was looking for a low cost entry mic that was not a USB interface (USB interfaces have so many issues randomly as far as feedback and white noise). So I looked for an entry level XLR Microphone and there are a few popular picks.I was pretty dead set on getting the Audio Technica AT2020 but the MXL 990 was also a popular choice for the roughly $100 price point. I ended up opting for the MXL because I was budgeting including my audio interface and random peripherals (cables, boom arm) and the Midnight color was actually $70 where the standard silver was the full price $100.Well this mic is definitely worth the full $100 either way.First, commenting on the Midnight edition, it is beautiful. It is a deep purple, but looks very black at first glance so it doesn't clash with my boom arm, cable, and pop filter. Not that it would be a deal breaker, but it just looks really nice.But for the sound...this mic can perform.Literally plugging into my audio interface (Scarlett 2i2) this thing sounded great.After applying a few filters (FIR and, compressor mainly) it sounds absolutely amazing.Again, I am doing youtube hobby work, so it's all talking I am judging this by, so I can personally attest that if you are going to podcast or game stream this mic is a fantastic pick. But even though I've never used it for singing, the voice clarity is so great I can't imagine it not being equally as great for that as well.This mic simply performs on all promises it makes.If you are looking for a condenser mic in the $100 price range, this guy is great.
5Great sound on a budget
If youre deciding between this and the AT-2020..get this, the response is amazing and rivals the AT-2020 and is good enough in the proper environment for voiceover workPros - Cheap, inexpensive, not terribly heavy, Sounds like a 200 dollar micCons - Cheap components that dont look like they will last longer than a few years, but MXL sells more expensive mics if you want a better sound
5This mic will blow your socks off!!
I work in radio and told my boss I spent 65$ on this 5 years ago. He couldn t believe the quality! It s an amazing mic...I have dropped it hit the wall with it and it still works like new! It s 5 years old! I do voiceovers every day with it.
5Good looks, great sound, solid construction.
This Mic sounds great. Really rich tone, I feel like an NPR radio host with that nice bassy undertone. I have a Shure stage mic (ol' standby) and this MXL sounds many, many times better. Also works well for Acoustic guitar mic, just remember to point the MXL logo at the point of sound origin. It's also very nice looking, and has heavy aluminum construction. It looks plastic in the pictures but it's all a metallic-champagne colored aluminum that's very aesthetically pleasing. The spider-mount is a plus for live recording and vibration suppresion, and also looks really neat.Make sure you have Phantom Power via XLR connection on your PA or mixer, this mic requires it.
Sooo...I went off Amazon and well....usic publications. Both say it performs equal to mics much more expensive. That's true. I got a Focusrite Solo, recording at 192 kHz @ 24bit is a very noticeable diff. Over my Blue Yeti. Yeti is still great and for a USB Mic, I'll always recommend. But...dang!!! XLR is awesome.
5An Excellent addition to my Recording Studio mic collection.
This little Monster packs a Big punch. It's the affordable version to the Neumann TLM-102.This MXL 990 mic has a great, "Warm" tube amped sound on its recording. I used to Record countless Albums with my AKG Precision 120, but now, as of 2019, this is the Mic I've been recording my Sessions with, and Highly recommend it for any Professional Recording Studio, that just wants to add an additional Mic that clients may be familiar with.-Felix Fingerz of Fingerz & Co.
5This is the one
I bought this way back in 2011 when I was upgrading my studio equipment and still have this mic to this day. I love the quality of it. It gives you a really smooth clear crispy sound. I'd highly recommend it for anyone who is a beginner or is just looking to do some basic recording. And is trying to achieve that super clean sound quality. This is the one!
5This mic is fantastic
WOW! This mic just blew be away. I've worked with many other mics over the past 20 years in studio recording, and this one for studio voice work is outstanding and goes head-to-head with other mics in the recording industry. I've worked with Sterling Audio, Audio Technica, other MXL mics and several others, but this one is truly silky smooth with my voice. It has at least 15-20% more full audio dynamics than the Sterling Audio ST55 and the audio peaks are not blown out. The mid range audio dynamics are perfect, supported by outstanding bass frequencies which provides a true world-class audio recording. I keep the peaks at around -6 to -9 dB and the bulk of the audio below that. This MXL did not need a pre amp like the Sterling Audio does. I run all my audio directly through the Yamaha AG03 with the phantom power on and the mic is very quite, around -51dB. I can barely hear any noise, if any, in play back. I work in Adobe Audition on the PC and sometimes Audacity, yet Audition gives me a better audio output and sound quality with this mic. I also use Monster Cables Prolink Standard 100 mic XLR cables. Bottom line, I can't say enough about this mic. It's now my "go to" mic for all my voice over and audio narration work. I record over 2,000 audio files in any given year and the MXL 990 will help my, and any other voice, sound even better.
5Very good build quality
You don't get to beat the quality of the mic at this price point, I used a similar model 15 years ago for music recording, I use this now for doing podcasts.Very good build quality, just does not care about beer spit, cigarette smoke, wind, nothing, but like any mic if you bang it around it will die. you NEED a pop screen for this mic but just, go spend another 7 dollars and get one if youre an S Hisser or a P Popper, but I will always stand behind this. If I replace it, I will probably be spending 700+ dollars.
