            The internal microphone of a Sony PX 312 picked up voices better than this microphone. You have to be very close to it (3 feet or less) to hear recordings.

            Comments about Audio-Technica ATR4697 Omnidirectional Condenser Boundary Microphone:

            I tried to use these to record a meeting. You basically have to lift it close to your mouth like a handheld to get any significant volume. The noise floor is also way too high. They also tend to make clicking sounds that I could not get rid of. DO NOT use phantom power even though they are condenser mics. This will cause considerable noise. No indicator to tell if the batteries are low. I can not recommend these mics to anyone. This is certainly one instance where you get what you paid for.

              Comments about Audio-Technica ATR4697 Omnidirectional Condenser Boundary Microphone:

              I didn't expect more that it costs to begin with but unfortunately there is nothing between a professional quality mic and not professional. This one definitely is not what a professional mic should be but if you looking just to record audio you can put this on your list.
