        Comments about Shure MX393/O - Omni-Directional Boundary Microphone:

        Used to record government meetings. Sound quality and pick-up depends on the room, but these are unobtrusive and work better than the gooseneck mics with a cardioid pattern we were using.
        One caveat - needs phantom power source (48V)

              Comments about Shure MX393/O - Omni-Directional Boundary Microphone:

              I've given this mic 4 out of 5 stars because of course you'd want a dedicated mic for anything truly important, and this omni-directional mic is not, by nature, a dedicated mic. But it works great for groups of people when there are not enough mics to go around.

              I use it for depositions and conference style recording and it works great.

                  I use this microphone when I am shooting more then two on screen talents. It eliminates the need to mic each person individually and from having to precisely position a boom mic. I have used this mic to record 3 and four people sitting around a table and was very happy with the quality of the sound. Obviously, the person closest to the mic sounds the best but the quality of the people the furthest from the mic was very good with very minimal fall off. I would highly recommend this mic.

                      I am not an expert on mikes, but we decided to spend a bit more on a mike for the altar at our church. The mike seems to work quite well as expected. The only thing that was disappointing is what I had understood was an on/off switch. It is not really a switch at all. It is more like a mute button that has its effect ONLY if you are holding it down.
