Buen sonido By:
Excelente micrófono, justo lo que buscaba
Great high quality microphone By:
Love this microphone. I use it for my podcast and am very happy with the quality in my videos.
Great quality and price! By:
For the price, great sound and build quality. I am very happy with this.I mainly use these as a headset mic replacement for gaming, and everyone mentions the quality they hear me at.I used to have a basic SteeleSeries headset mic that sounded like a old radio in a can.I highly recommend this mic, I also make a bit of music and I cannot even imagine using my headset again.The design is also great and has a bit of weight to it, definitely adds to the quality.
What are you waiting for?!? Purchase this one. By:
Almost studio grade sound.This is a spectacular microphone.It has true sound and looks like I paid a small fortune for it.I could not be any happier.I have used it on multiple occasions and it never disappoints.
Great Microphone By:
This is a great microphone that I use everyday. I use it for calls and to record occasionally. It always sounds crisp and clear. If I had to say something bad about it it would be that it picks up a lot of noise from my keyboard and background, but that is something to expect from a condenser microphone so I would recommend it.
Perfect By:
Took some adjusting and getting used too, but does exactly what I need it to.
Two words: Love it! By:
I've been praying for a great mic for my in home recording sessions and BAM!
Very happy customer. By:
I'm no audio expert, but it sounds far better than my HyperX Cloud 2 headset mic and my previous usb cheapo mic. I suppose the best way to look at it is a great mid range mic. Bonus: the condenser only seems to pick up sound in one direction, so i didn't need to waste all that time and energy isolating my computer fans! *sigh*
Hands down, the best value for the money!!! By:
This is the best Microphone that I have used to do voice over work. There is no setup needed upon plugging into my Windows PC. The driver loaded immediately and all I had to do was to configure the microphone for my location.The mount worked great on my boom arm and holds the mic in place perfectly. The case this come with is really nice as well. I do not plan to make this a mobile use item, but in the event that I do need to take with me, I have no doubt that this case will protect my investment.I have compared this to an even more expensive mic that had some settings on it and this sounded so much better. If I need another mic, I have no intention on getting anything else.
Quality mic By:
Very sensitive mic but in a good way. For the price this is exactly what I needed.

It does exactly what it's supposed to. By:
Excellent product. Perfect for desktop recording. I will be purchasing the larger one shortly.
It's pretty effective By:
When I finally figured out the best way to set up this shield, it worked like a charm. I wouldn't rely on it to be your only sound-blocking device, but it does its job well.
Does the job By:
Easy to install and does wonders for my vocals! The shield really captures my vocals properly and even without having to get too close to the mic. The shield gives vocals more leveling and balance, and makes mixing A LOT easier!! If you don't have one in your home studio, you are overworking yourself on the vocal mixes!!
great compant screen By:
Fits nicely on stand and works well.
LyXpro sound isolation. By:
Good and light product.
Good quality By:
It's smaller than I thought, but it's alright. I got concentrated sound and its quality is good.
Integrity of this product By:
This product is very well built. The foam had a professional quality thickness. The aluminium frame is very sturdy it's not flimsy. The foam is very well attached to the aluminum frame. I would recommend ordering this for music producing.
Solid construction By:
Helps keep sound from bouncing everywhere. I’m satisfied with the purchase
Great quality! By:
Not only is my LyxPro VRI-30 small enough to tuck away and store...it's also strong, sturdy and ideal for my recording purposes. An excellent product!

(Please help) I can’t set up my microphone By:

not only do I look like the coolest nannie to my grans when they visit ... By:
not only do I look like the coolest nannie to my grans when they visit all my family who I skype with like it better when I use it! great mic easy set up!
Great for a budget microphone By:
The audio quality was very bad and extremely quiet when first plugging it into my PC, but I adjusted the audio settings and it sounded way better. There seems to have a bit of static in the background but it is okay. If you are too far from the microphone, it will most likely not pick you up. It sounds good for a budget microphone. It is nice that it came with two pop filters.
Superb product By:
This is the best bang for your buck I think you can find. I've used the mic for podcasting, recording amp cabinets of guitar and bass, and vocals, and I'm very impressed. If you're on a budget like me, don't think twice. Scoop this up.
Balls By:

Es un micrófono profesional By:
Es un buen micrófono para estudio
Good product By:
I'm using this mic for YouTube I like it so far the quality is good is very affordable it's very beginner-friendly I've been using this mic for voice overs for commentary everything that comes with it is really good the only thing that I don't like about it if that it does pick up a lot of background noise even with the pop filter and the other thing that's black that covers over it is still picked up some noise but as long as you have a quiet area you should be fine to use it
great for the price By:
I got this mic to clip on my desk and be able to write and stack harmonies quickly, as well as communicate with artists when they are in a vocal booth. Today I had the day off and decided to play some songs through it. Granted, I ran it through 100s of dollars of plugins and gear and have 10+ years of engineering and mixing experience, but it sounds absolutely great. I may buy 4 more of these to make a little radio/podcast studio!
