    MXL 770 reviews

    770 Cardioid Condenser Microphone is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 31.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality Got this for my 15 y/o daughter. She plays guitar and writes her own songs and was wanting to record her music to start up a YouTube channel. I spoke with a B&H tech and they gave me several recommendations, some were less expensive but this seemed like a good middle of the road place to start as her first mic. I paired this with the a mic stand and pop filter and also bought the Focusrite iTrack Solo Audio Interface. I set it up and we surprised her with it when she got home and she cried. Then she did a quick recording with it in Garage Band of one of her songs. When we played it back, I cried. The audio quality of this basic setup sounded studio quality. I highly recommend all of these products.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice sound at an affordable price I bought this mic a few weeks ago and I was able to use it at work for some podcasting. The shock mount slides over the mic easily and locks in place. I attached the shock mount to a Proline Desk Boom mic stand, plugged the mic, connected it to a mixer, and then connected it to a Tascam recorder. Off in running in about 5 minutes. I love that the mic comes with a case for transport. The foam protects the mic and shock mount and allows me to transport the mic without having to worry about moisture or having the mic battered around in the car. I looked at some of the audio samples today and I great great audio at a small price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Microphone! I use this Mic for just about everything and it hasn't skipped a beat. The bass response is massive and the option to add a high pass filter into brighten thins up makes recording a crystal clear track almost too easy. The noise cancellation is great especially for those high noise situations I constantly find myself in. The carrying case as well as the included shock mount make for a perfect on-the-go microphone. If you are looking for a great starter mic. look no further, this is the one to get. Heck, I bought two of them.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pro-Look, Great Price, Good Sound! Purchasing a microphone these days is very tricky. It depends on if you're using them for LIVE, RAW RECORDING STUDIO work (meaning no or minimal effects). If you're going to be using the mic for vocals and instruments that will be augmented with today's powerful digital effects, just about any mic with a clean, undistorted sound will do and this MXL 770 is the perfect mic for actually both cases, LIVE (if you cannot afford the big-boy prices) and especially FX AUGMENTED RECORDINGS. I own four of these mics in our studio and I am very pleased with the sound. However, I would suggest spicing up your mic collection with one of the relatively inexpensive MXL tube mics for those meticulous recording situations.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A a big wow in a little box This microphone is amazing truly amazing and can be used for pretty much anything vocals , acoustic guitar , electric guitar , drum overheads etc. It is a total workhorse! and the quality is truly phenomenal especially given the price! The bass roll off and attenuation pad allow for custom and diverse sound applications its so nice to have choice and diversity in just one microphone, and of course again the quality that comes out of this thing even compared with professional studio work this things competes head to toe couldn't tell any difference, 100% worth it ! get this mic!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Microphone! If your looking for an inexpensive studio microphone, but you don't want to break the bank - this is the mic for you! I use this mic for Voice-Over and Radio Broadcasting. It's solid!
