Muted Sound, Not Crisp
Your browser does not support HTML5 video. I wanted a budget microphone for creating short films and vlogs. I bought 4 different microphones to compare. I ended up keeping the EACHSHOT mic.Here’s my ranking:1. Eachshot microphone (ASIN B01N9O7KWY)2. Boya BY-MM1 (ASIN B07NNBX4K2)3. Sairen VM-Q1 (ASIN B082B1DX9K)4. Fantaseal microphone (ASIN B07Y8GK8T5)The Eachshot mic had the brightest, clearest sound of the mics tested.Includes: microphone, shock mount, dead cat, foam cover, TRS to TRS output audio cable, TRS to TRRS output audio cable.The Boya mic is popular amongst video creators, but the sound was rather muted compared to the Eachshot. It lacked a certain crispness.Includes: microphone, shock mount, dead cat, TRS to TRS output audio cable, TRS to TRRS output audio cable, storage bag.The Sairen mic was good at picking up higher frequencies, but generally sounded muted compared to both Eachshot and Boya. It also has a few very minor flaws like the foam cover being somewhat hard to put on and the smart phone cable not being labeled (it’s the TRRS - the output with 3 black bands).Includes: microphone, shock mount, dead cat, foam cover, TRS to TRS output audio cable, TRS to TRRS output audio cable, storage bag.The Fantaseal mic was by far the worst. Although loud in volume, there was a lot of background static noise with and without the dead cat. And the dead cat was impossible to put over the microphone because the opening is too small.Includes: microphone, shock mount, dead cat, TRS to TRS output audio cable, TRS to TRRS output audio cable, storage bag.
Awesome GoPro attachment!
Does an awesome job with GoPro! Have to have the adapter to hook it up to GoPro. Be aware, obviously taking a side piece off of the GoPro so you can hook this mic up to the GoPro makes it vulnerable to water. I film on my boat at the lake and two gopros drowned after taking a dip while I was fishing on a windy day. If around water and chance of GoPro being submerged be very careful or just consider not using this in that situation and use windscreen instead! Expensive lesson learned! Mic works as advertised and a must have!
Not worth it
Sorry for the bad review but this is not a very good mic at all. The cable is about 6 inches long. If you hook it to your computer, it will be too far from your voice and it records all the room noise first. Noise cancellation? It has none. I had to download a realtek driver for it, boost the mic t0 full capacity (+30db) for it to hear my voice or guitar and all it recorded was a higher room void noise and voice and guitar sound like I am in a vacuum. It's about the same quality of something you'd buy in a 5 Below store so it should be priced at around $5. Not $30. I went to Walmart and bought a podcasting mic off the shelf for $24 and it works like a charm with a 5 feet proper USB cable.
Great Quality at a Great Price
I only have on con with this product better components packaging, items looked like something that had been returned and refurbished..after watching a unboxing video featuring the Boya BY-MM1 it became obvious this is how they ship their items. My expectations were a little too high I guess, but as far as the BY-MM1 sound and build quality goes it was exactly what I expected very good at it’s price point the sound reproduction was accurate indoors. It is a little heavier than the Rode mic but at almost half the price I very happy with my purchase. Glad I bought the Boya BY-MM1.
Don't Buy This
the microphone on my iphone works better than this product. what ever this is (was) was just complete waste of money and time. it actually made all the sound worst!
Small, reduces wind noise, hook to phone or dslr
The size of it is good. That’s why I got it. The sound quality is meh. I thought the sound would be better, but I guess you have to have a computer to clean everything up. I like that you can hook it to both a phone and a dlsr. I like that it has something to block the wind. It seems pretty sturdily built
Product is not worth the money. The package comes broken and the product doesn’t sound good, and has a cracking sound.
I would have given it another star but the mounting system is pretty hokie and doesn't offer options for other mounting solutions.
