    MXL TempoKR reviews

    TempoKR USB Condenser Microphone (Black/Red) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works AWESOME!! This mic works great I am a local up and coming rap artist and I gotta say this mic is very clear and worth purchasing! I have made several songs since all of which sound VERY HIGH QUALITY and STUDIO QUALITY EVEN! .............But yes this mic is very much worth investing in and a very good price to find as well!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for recording with an iPad. I was looking for a decent mic to use with my iPad for field recording of acoustic instruments and voices. I run a old-time acoustic jam and the iPad allows me to do minor editing on the spot. Had been using conventional xlr mics patched in through the earphone/mic jack, but was getting noise from the jack and background hum which was unacceptable. In shopping around, the MXL Tempo was the best value of mics which work with the iPad camera connection kit USB adapter. The mic works as advertised, right out of the box. No hum, even at high input levels, which means that instruments don't have to be right up on the mic, potentially bumping into it. The on- board earphone jack is handy, but the normal earphone jack on the iPad gives the best proof of recording quality since it is the true output. All around good product. MXL has a winner.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Voice recording at a great price! I bought this for doing commentary over my videogame footage. It definately helps amplify my voice over some of the more ambient effects within the games I play. You definately need to be in an all quiet room though because this mic will pick up almost everything around you. It works great while combining it with my headset and the built in headset jack really helps for when you want to listen to feedback on your own recordings.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Beginner Mic It is an ok mic for recording audio for voice overs. However, when you plug in your headphones to listen while you record there is a slight delay which can throw you off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound in a compact package I primarily use this mic when I record screencasts for trainings, software demonstrations, and when doing video game commentary. I really like the voice quality and I don't have that great of radio voice but this mic helps smooth out some of the rough edges of my voice. I was surprised how sturdy this mic is compared too the images in the product description. It is an all-metal housing and the grill covering the mic is actually wire mesh, which I though was only cloth at first. The included USB cable is about 8 feet long so you have plenty of room to move this about. I haven't tried using the built-in monitor jack because I find it distracting when recording. We use MXL Micmate USB to XLR adapters and MXL condenser mics so I was originally going to purchase a different mic and the Micmate. I saved money by buying the Tempo and have the same results with less equipment.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is great This microphone is amazing, the quality is just perfect especially for YouTube game commentary, I love this microphone and recommend it to all!!!
    Date published: 2014-08-03
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from low price / works great Needed a traveling mic for voice over auditions that was also inexpensive. It has a clean sound that's got some depth to it, and is great at eliminating mouth noise. So far am very pleased with it. Not sure if I would use it to record a full session as it lacks the richness you get from a studio mic, but it would be fine for something like a podcast.
    Date published: 2013-05-20
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good quality recording - latency issues This mic works well for doing voice over work but if you are trying to use the real time monitor feature forget it! The volume is VERY low. I had to use earbuds and a headphone amp to have it work sufficiently. If you don't mind terrible latency then it has more volume. MXL support was no help and very rude.
