        Comments about MXL USB.007 Stereo Condenser Microphone with USB:

        I wasn't sure how this mic was going to sound, it's my first mxl usb condenser mic, I was quite pleased with it, as soon as it arrived, I opened it up, and plugged it into my laptop, windows updated the drivers, and I got on my piano and played and sung a song, I was surprised with the quality of sound, plus I was able to hear both my voice, and the piano clearly, I have been using a mixer and a few mics to record, but this is much better, one mic that picks up both the piano, and my voice clearly, cant beat it, the only thing I had to do was go into the sound mixer on my laptop, and lower the recording volume, other than that, its perfect, I added some reverb, and eq in my recording program, and it sounds like a studio quality recording :)

          Works as an excellent stereo mike. I do not hear or see any noise signal on my timeline in Aodobe audition. Once you set up the audio levels in windows 7, it is a piece of cake to use.

              This mic is very well made ( except for the wind sock, which needs a rubber band to keep it from blowing off ). Response is very smooth on the left mic, but the right mic has a variation and is not so smooth - I don't know if this is a defect in my unit, or a characteristic of the mic capsules position in the assembly. I'm using the (left) mic for calibrating rooms right now, but intend to use it for recording live choral music - I haven't had a chance to try it yet.

                    Using in teaching studio for quick recordings, and examples. It's quiet, and makes fast recordings easily. The light was offset from its center, but after speaking with the company, they told me this has no effect on the sound quality. It's simply an "on" light.

                        I used this mic to record classical guitar with great results! For the price, you probably cannot beat it. And it is extremely easy to use. However, do not expect to get true studio quality sound out of this. This is just an excellent, easy to use, entry-level mic for someone who wants stereo sound.

If its design fits your needs you won't be disappointed and B&H had it at the right price. I'll be dealing with them again in the future!

                              Although I don't do professional recording, my first test of this mic impressed me. The sound was clear with no background noise. Setup was simple. Included a good deal of information about the mic and its recommended setup. Came well packaged, and with a very nice carrying case to keep it protected.

                                I purchased this product to do voice overs for local television commercials in our studio. Since it has an USB interface I can record high quality voice overs on the road as well. I definitely recommend a pop filter since you need to get pretty close to the microphone for it to pick you up.

                                I bought this mic to record my classical guitars. I found the sound to be extremely natural and the stereo image excellent. The mic was so easy to setup too. All you have to do is plug it in to a USB port on your computer and Windows XP recognized it and I was recording in 30 seconds using both the Sound Recorder that comes with Windows XP and with my old Sound Forge XP 4.5 software. It has a wide dynamic range. I have to be very close (12) playing very very very loudly to make it distort at the highest sensitivity setting, but it comes with 3 sensitivity settings so is distorting is an issue for you all you have to do is switch the the medium setting. In the recordings with the mic in a very quite room the only drawback is a slight amount of hiss audible in the background of recordings. This hiss is evident in their sound samples on their website as well.
