    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good microphone, for the right purpose. I'm using this to record myself playing grand piano and for tuning. For that purpose it's all I need. I've tried recording with Macbook Pro and Audacity but having a lot of electronic noise issues. Recording with the Shure app on iPad is very clean, so I don't think the issue is with the mic. For my situation, this is a good product. Pros 1. Certified to work with iPad (some USB mics draw too much power, requiring you to use a powered USB hub). 2. Includes cables for iPad and regular USB. 3. Shure has an easy-to-use app for their USB mics with mic setting controls and level/equalizer adjustments for basic recording. 4. Good enough sound for my purposes - there's a good review with sound samples on thewirecutter, which ranked this 2nd after Blue Yeti. There are also some examples on youtube if you search. However, most USB microphone reviews are based on recording voice, not instruments. 5. Fits a 1/4 thread camera tripod, which I already have. 6. Multiple DSP modes, including flat. 20-20kHz response. Cons 1. Not stereo - but most USB mics aren't except Blue Yeti. Doing stereo with 2 USB mics is a bit of pain from what I've read. 2. Stand is cute but doesn't allow much adjustment. Add a mini ball head like Oben BD-0, or a small tripod. 3. Includes 3 ft cables. You might want longer. Long USB cable is easy to find. iPad is harder. 4. Using with standard mic stand requires adapter. 5. Included user manual requires magnifier to read. Fortunately it's all online.
