      I'm using this product as a PC microphone. I've attached it to the top of my 27" Widescreen LCD Monitor using the MIC-EZE M-1 (albeit with substantial difficulty). The mic itself works perfectly with my PC after being paired with an ART Tube MP Preamplifier.

      This mic is surprisingly quite heavy. Probably because it is a dynamic microphone and not a condenser mic. I'm not a big fan of the stand clamp it ships with as it takes a significant effort to attach/detach the mic to it. It doesn't seem to be truly unidirectional to me. When Skyping with someone they can still hear me quite well even when I move laterally away from the mic while it is attached to the top of my monitor. This was actually a pleasant surprise for me, but other potential buyers may not like this characteristic. It should be noted that I can't definitively compare this mic to others of the same type, because it is the first XLR mic I've ever purchased.

      Attaching this mic to my LCD monitor using the MIC-EZE M-1 was not easy, but barely doable by wedging an extra metal square bracket into the M-1. Someone REALLY needs to manufacture a microphone mount which utilizes the VESA mounting mechanism now commonly found on the backs of LCD monitors!

      Overall, given the high quality of the mic and the amazing price, I'd say this is definitely the microphone you want to use with your PC. You will need a pre-amp and mounting mechanism to make it work for this purpose though.

        Comments about Audio-Technica ATR1300 Cardioid Handheld Dynamic Microphone:

        I bought this product to use in a home karaoke environment. It already comes with TRS jacks on very robust cords. For the price, this is one of the best corded microphones you can buy. The sound quality is excellent and the microphone is very, very resistant to feedback and rejection. Not to mention the fact that there's plenty of cord length. Very versatile piece of equipment.

                I use this microphone on my communication radio transceivers as a ham radio operator. It has excellent fidelity in the voice range, and I can only imagine it does the same for musical instruments. I have to say that Audio Technica got it right with this mic. It is rugged, good looking, in-expensive, and it sounds great. I get compliments from other radio operators that place it superior in performance to mics costing 3 to 4 times as much, and on a par with mics costing 5-6 times as much. Good job, Audio Technica!

                    Bought this to replace an old mic that I thought would be the same quality as the prices were about the same. This mic is much better than anticipated. Great response and feel. Will recommend to my other DJ buddies.

                        Using the ATR1300 with a Radio Shack stand together with a Heil HS-1 PTT switch on a Yaesu FT-950 Amateur Radio transceiver with excellent results - especially on the wide audio frequency response settings (100-3000 Hz and 100-2900 Hz). Using only the '950's built in equalizer - no need for external components in the audio chain. Compared with a Heil PRO Set Elite, the ATR1300 wins hands down and costs a fraction of the price. Best [$] I ever spent on any audio equipment !

                                Comments about Audio-Technica ATR1300 Cardioid Handheld Dynamic Microphone:

                                A very good mic for the price and one that works well for our Students in the Multi-media program.
