        It is definitely unidirectional but if good with that I think its a great deal.

            Lightweight, easy to use. Wish it had a USB cable with it - the only reason I deducted one star.

            Comments about Audio-Technica MB1K/C Microphone with Cable:

            I use the mic in church for worship (just me and my guitar), so clarity is very important. This mic does very well for the price range it is in. The fact that it comes with a XLR cable and mic clip is a steal. The only thing I could complain about is that it has a very narrow space in which it picks up vocals. It is unidirectional, however, it is 'very' unidirectional and to get it to pick up your voice, you almost have to swallow the mic. All that said, It is an awesome mic for the money. It seems to be very durable and the on/off switch is great.

              I purchased these for my practice studio for my kids and love them. Not only do they sound great but feedback is practically non existent and the on/off switch is a great extra. Even comes with a mic stand mount.

              This microphone was bought as a replacement for a more expensive one being used in a middle school technology lab. This one is much more robust. Visibly better quality, designed to take abuse, and totally acceptable sound quality as well. Hard to beat for the money.

                Comments about Audio-Technica MB1K/C Microphone with Cable:

                This mic is our standard model used for band vocals. We have been using them for several years. They have very good sensitivity, good vocal response, and are fairly sturdy. There are certainly better mics out there, but for amateur performers, these do a fine job. I do not know of a better sounding mic in this price range.
