    Blue Kiwi reviews

    Kiwi Microphone is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 13 years and still no regrets I don't usually write reviews but this mic deserves it. We purchased the kiwi 13 years ago and it still sounds just as good today as it did when we purchased it. This is a professional mic and I've never heard anyone (professional engineers) complain about the quality of sound.
