      Hard to argue against the value of this one. I hooked it up to a mini mixer so I could get the room while a presenter spoke through a wireless lapel microphone. The room comes through loud and clear -- much better than had we just recorded through a Polycom.

      Excellent fidelity, and it gets a nice wide field. Put it at one end of the conference table and you'll capture the room. In our case we had about a dozen people and they all came in.

      This mic is a decent fallback when the situation requires something of this style microphone, but be prepared to do some EQ work if you're going to use for audio recording solutions. It's better than a conference call, but it does pickup a lot of "the room" and those style noises associated with it.

        We bought this product to use as a back-up microphone during some of our video productions. It is very sensitive and tends to pick up every sound in the room, which is what we wanted, but the voices van sound a bit hollow if you rely only on this mic.

            Comments about Audio-Technica PRO-44 - Hemi-Cardioid Boundary Mic:

            I am using this microphone for small seminar that my wife and her friend are presenting. They have just completed second seminar last week (Aug 25th, 2012) and recorded with this microphone. They were standing at left and right of presentation screen.
            Great thing about are 1. Only one microphone does a good job, 2. Audience did not notice because the boundary microphone was hard to be noticed.
            This is good for interview, small group seminar and talk show.

              Comments about Audio-Technica PRO-44 - Hemi-Cardioid Boundary Mic:

              Purchased this last week to cover a 3 hour meeting and it worked flawlessly. The PRO-44 was placed on the rectangular meeting table, about 3/4 of the way from one end, in the center. It captured all conversation at the table (about 12 people), even those seated slightly behind it. The included cable has a mini-XLR that connects to the mic and a standard XLR at the other end. It is plenty long for most typical applications. The microphone feels substantial and well made. Very pleased with purchase.

                These boundary mic performed superbly at a recent meeting with a 10-person panel table. Problems inherent with lavaliere and traditional table mic were eliminated. Highly recommend these mics.

                      Using it to record parent meetings in a small room
                      Picks up conversations much better than the standard mic on the camcorder. Very unobtrusive.

                      Be sure to get the correct adapters for your camcorder.

                        Purchased two of these for sound reinforcement on stage (HS theatre), and their performance to date is satisfactory. My only issue, and that's merely one of preference, is they are very light-weight.
