      Got this for my 15 y/o daughter. She plays guitar and writes her own songs and was wanting to record her music to start up a YouTube channel. I spoke with a B&H tech and they gave me several recommendations, some were less expensive but this seemed like a good middle of the road place to start as her first mic.
      I paired this with the a mic stand and pop filter and also bought the Focusrite iTrack Solo Audio Interface.
      I set it up and we surprised her with it when she got home and she cried. Then she did a quick recording with it in Garage Band of one of her songs. When we played it back, I cried.
      The audio quality of this basic setup sounded studio quality. I highly recommend all of these products.

                            When I purchased this, I was hoping it would replace our current headsets that are used for broadcasts. Just tested it out for a talk show and am thoroughly impressed. Great build quality and audio quality for a very affordable price.

                                  I purchase this item to better record my vocal and none electoral instrument. I was I amazed by how hoe crisp the sound came from my PC. I was so shock that I could not believe that that was my voice. Now working now confidence, learning how to get used to my voice which sound too sweet. The ladies will love it!!

                                                Is a major key to my voice training system connected through iTrack Solo interface and a CD recorder. This
                                                Condenser Microphone exceeded my performance expectations and is highly recommended if you have budget restraints.

                                                  I use this Mic for just about everything and it hasn't skipped a beat. The bass response is massive and the option to add a high pass filter into brighten thins up makes recording a crystal clear track almost too easy. The noise cancellation is great especially for those high noise situations I constantly find myself in. The carrying case as well as the included shock mount make for a perfect on-the-go microphone. If you are looking for a great starter mic. look no further, this is the one to get. Heck, I bought two of them.

                                                      Picked up two of these 770's for use in recording podcasts, as "guest" mics. Impressive sound quality, and feel nicely constructed.

                                                      There is a red warning regarding condenser mics and close proximity recording... suggests the purchase and use of pop filter or foam windscreen to keep from damaging ribbon.

                                                      Time, a good quality pop filter and common sense handling should tell. All in all, pretty nice (and quiet) sounding mic.

                                                        I am a drummer and bought two of these mics for my overhead mic setup. They pick up the instrumentation very well...better than I thought. No tom mics, just snare, bass drum mics and overheads for the recording I was doing and the final product came out very well.

                                                          Purchasing a microphone these days is very tricky. It depends on if you're using them for LIVE, RAW RECORDING STUDIO work (meaning no or minimal effects).

                                                          If you're going to be using the mic for vocals and instruments that will be augmented with today's powerful digital effects, just about any mic with a clean, undistorted sound will do and this MXL 770 is the perfect mic for actually both cases, LIVE (if you cannot afford the big-boy prices) and especially FX AUGMENTED RECORDINGS. I own four of these mics in our studio and I am very pleased with the sound. However, I would suggest spicing up your mic collection with one of the relatively inexpensive MXL tube mics for those meticulous recording situations.
