The build quality feels quite solid especially with the metal clip which doesn't feel like it'll break anytime soon. It has a very long cable.
It's an omni-directional microphone which means it picks up sound equally in all directions, this can be a pro or con depending on your requirements. On the one hand it offers a simple method for consistent audio level, just clip it on facing downwards to avoid blowing into it and you can't really fail. The drawback of omni-directional is it'll pick up nearby unwanted sounds too, eg. keyboard/mouse.
It requires battery power unless plugged into a mic/headphone combo plug. The batteries are the little cell batteries, easy enough to replace. The battery compartment offers enough space to facilitate an additional clip that reduces the strain on the microphone's cable. Having to remember to turn it on & off adds another thing to think about which can suck, and it's easy to forget to turn it off.
The device would benefit from a removable cable and a battery indicator.
Overall, it's a satisfactory microphone on a budget.
Sound quality is ok but somewhat noisy so needs some post production enhancement or real time noise suppression (most video conferencing apps do this automatically).
The lapel clip is unnecessarily awkward to use but this is easily and cheaply replaced and the length of the cable is annoyingly generous (as in what do you do with all that cable when you don't need it). It would be better for Boya to supply a 2m cable with a 8m extension that you could pull out off you needed than force you to carry around 10m of cable tangle everywhere.
Lastly, I experienced relatively low signal levels into my HP laptop and found that turning the switch to the 'camera' setting (turning on the battery driven circuitry) to boost the signal level was an effective way of addressing this issue.
Anyway - these probably work fine but they're like battery powered? What even.
