    MXL FR-401 reviews

    FR-401M Supercardioid Boundary Microphone is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing! I contacted the B&H help chat, and told them I was looking for some mics I could place in different areas of a grade school stage to pic up children speaking without having to pass a mic around. This person recommended these mic to me, so we bought 2. Huge disappointment! The picked up nothing except when a student had his or her mouth within a fort or two of the mic. I contacted the help chat again to find out what I was doing wrong, and was told these mics are not very sensitive, and we're doing all they could do. What a waste of time, effort, and money! They are going back, but I'm still left to figure out a solution to my problem. Thanks alot, B&H!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality at a great price We purchased two of these mics to use while shooting a classroom training video. They definitely did what we were looking for. These mics have good pick up with virtually no noise. I was impressed. Also, for the price, these mics are a bargain. They are solid, professional quality mics.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Does The Job I bought this mic to use on conference tables during meetings to pick up anyone that I didn't have a lavalier mic on. It is quite sensitive, and does a great job picking up everything in the room. The only complain I have is that it has a lot of white noise if you turn it up too far. It is not as nice as the Altex I was previously using, but all in all, it's a pretty good mic.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mic for the price Overall a good mic for the price. However, it did take quite a bit of work to cut out feedback and extra noise.
