I love this mic sooooo much. It so cute, but packs great sound quality. I've owned several budget mics, and I would say this is the best thing before you decide to make the move up to something like the Yeti.
Firstly, you have the three settings. I usually use the second one because it cancels the most noise, but having the choice is great.
Then theres the fact that its so portable. It comes with a neat pouch that you can put the mic and cords in.
I paired the mic with a Dragonpad pop filter and stand for a setup that's around $60.
Note- you can even use this mic with android(what I record with on the go)!!! Of course, you would have to get an OTG cord(they're on amazon and ebay for around $5) and make sure your phone can handle the input. I use hi-qu, and its ready to record as soon as I plug into my phone without actually buying that weird interface app that $6.99. Just a hint for those who are like me and would sometimes rather record on your phone.
