We bought several of these, and they all produce an annoying high frequency in the audio track. There is also an issue where we get scratchy audio and have to restart the program to eliminate that problem. Do not recommend.

Comments about Cyber Acoustics CVL-1084 USB Desktop Microphone:

I like it, fits right on my desk, I can easily switch it off and not worry if its still running, and since i use a lot of apps that require a mic, this was great in a pinch (friends that i speak to notice the quality of the audio and that it could be a bit better, but that's what you get for a 20$ mic, but it works)

    Use this mike to give commands to my pic. Using Windows 10 and it's voice commands makes getting information and searching so much easier.

    The more I use it, the more I like using it.

          Comments about Cyber Acoustics CVL-1084 USB Desktop Microphone:

          I've yet to find a good USB mic; even with it's adjustments toned down, this mic seemed overly sensitive, and pops and hisses were prevalent (from the over sensitivity). There was also a high-pitched hum in all of my recordings.

                  not bad for straight simple meeting audio,
                  fairly sensitive Omni pattern, even works ok
                  as a single conference table mic for casual calls,
                  only worry is itself gooseneck over time getting loose- I would prefer less play in its adjustment

                          I purchased this item for my daughter in college who needed a good mic to interview pre-schoolers with her laptop taking the information. The children don't have to touch the mic making the event much easier.
