I bought this microphone about a month ago and it took my friend and I a week to figure out how to un-mute my speakers while the mic is plugged in. You will have to go to your control panel, go to hardware and sound, and DISABLE the C-Media USB Audio Device. For some reason, the computer will think that the microphone is a speaker. After disabling this feature, you should be good to go!

EXACT DETAILS. i purchased this mic on New Years Eve, right before 2010. So ive owned it for about a year now. ive done about 400 musical projects with this mic. This mic is good, but only good to a certain point. but one thing YOU CANNOT DO: you cant buy a mic, use it for the first few times, and call it a good mic. i have to rate this mic in every area. "10 meaning best, 1 meaning worst" QUALITY= 4. why? because this mic doesnt reallly gives vocals a good warm studio sound like what everybody says. RELIABILITY = 8. why? because you can acually take this mic anywhere you want to go without the hassle of hooking up extra hardware (preamps, mixers, interface ext.) DURABILITY = 6. why? well the mic clip, the part where the mic connects to the stand, well that lil circle thing isnt too helpful after owning this thing for a year, and for it to be a USB mic, then i think it should have been made for traveling and being tossed around becuase of the flexibility of it. then after using it for a year, i noticed that the screens can easily pop off (even though mine havent). the quality of the sound decreases after a while. you wont be able to notice, until you gain THE-EAR-FOR-QUALITY. FEEL = 4. why? well it doesnt look attractive in any way, it feels and looks like something you can buy from Toys R Us. FLEXIBILITY = 5. why? well eventhough u can podcast, record on-the-go, and hook it up to a computer easily, doesnt mean its flexible. since its a USB mic, you cant upgrade the quality. i mean its a great mic, but you get what you pay for. if all you have is $70, and thats all you want to spend on a mic, then get it. this mic really helped me out on giving me the name "THE STUDIO MAN". but its time to upgrade. and one thing you dont do... dont upgrade a USB mic for another USB mic, or you'll run into the same problems you had with the other one and ur gunna want to reupgrade. Good for starters, but use it for a year, and tell me what u think. OH AND ONE MORE THING... I TRY TO MONITOR MY VOCALS WHEN I RECORD, AND THE MIC GIVES ME THIS LITTLE ECHO, TO WEAR I THINK IM TALKING SLOW. and sometimes when i record with the mic volume high, the mic smells like a burned out car amp. so dont record your vocals with the volume up too high or this thing will easily blow out on you.

Way better than planned

By Nathan

from Lehi, UT

Comments about CAD U37 USB Condenser Microphone:

I really love this mic. I bought it just so I could record my demos, (Guitar, bass, drums, and vocals) and it works great for everything. It picks up a little to much with the drums, being so loud and all, but sounds good if you play softer. it also has no noise, or fuzz. and it really is plug and play. i had to go to Control panel/ sound speech and audio devices/sounds and audio devices/ audio to get my speakers to play what I recorded, but who cares. I really like this mic, it has great sound and picks up the right amount. I would really get it if you're thinking about it.

pleasantly surprised.

By Bryan Cook

from Alabama

Comments about CAD U37 USB Condenser Microphone:

Love this mike. I have used it to mike my acoustic guitar and it does a great job. I just plugged it up and I was ready to go. The only issue with this usb mike is it will mute your speakers while you are recording to the computer. I have no idea how to bypass this. The stand that comes with it is not real sturdy but for desktop recording it is sufficient. It really is a great mike for home recording. Well worth the money.

Macintosh/Appple Based Recording Sound Engineer

By Mackey Keener

from Atoka, Oklahoma

Comments about CAD U37 USB Condenser Microphone:

Bought the USB microphone because of price and wanted to get away from using interfaces that require lots of set up prior to recording. Just plugged it in and was amazed on the sound quality, dynamic range and sensitivity. Was very happy with USB microphone and would highly recommend to anyone that wants to do some simple recording,pod casting and or chat on the internet. The mic stand it comes with is very handy and can be mounted on a boom mic stand as well. I love the bright L.E.D. on the mic that shows it is on and the gain button/bass roll off when selecting your type of sound in. Works excellent with all my pro mac software. I will definitely buy several more for my studio. Thanks CAD for a product that works!

Great Beginner Recording Microphone

By Dakota

from Monroe, NC

Comments about CAD U37 USB Condenser Microphone:

I was a begginer at all this recording stuff. I was told I should get interfaces, toneports, and all this other jazz. Then I was in Guitar Center and saw this thing for $70, and believe me it is absolutly great! Im not using anything but my computers soundcard and this mic, no strings attached. It sounds outstanding, highly recommend this!

A-MAZ-ING

By Holden

from Orem, Utah

Comments about CAD U37 USB Condenser Microphone:

I was just looking around for equipment that I could make a home-studio with and this thing fit the bill! I use Garage Band on my Mac and I am amazed with how easy it is to use (you just plug it in and go), and the amazing quality that comes with it. It sounds really professional, and the settings on the mic itself make it universal for vocal and acoustic guitar. Pure, clean sound, cheap price, no problems. This is the mic for you. By the way, I have no problems with the speaker-muting that I hear so much about.

Sure is sensitive, but that's not all good...

By Tommy J

from Maryland

Comments about CAD U37 USB Condenser Microphone:

I bought this mic because I wantd something that would make my bass sound as warm and rich as it is and that I could just plug into my computer, and I got it. This mic does have a warm rich sound, a really lovely tone. The problem is that it can't handle loud noises. It overdrives really easily and that leads to the other problem: it's too sensitive. I had to turn my volume down to the point where the mic picked up the fret buzz and my breathing better 10 feet away than the amp 1 foot in front of it. I guess that's partly because it's easier for a mic to pick up higher frequencies than it is to pick up lower frequencies (I was playing bass). I gave this 3 stars instead of 1 or 2 because this mic does have it's uses. Simple talking, singing (my sister sings, she tried it), and acoustice instuments are generally alright and this mic can handle them, but don't use this mic for drums or amplified instruments.

Quality. Amazing. Simply Put.

By James Calhoun

from Nashville, TN

Comments about CAD U37 USB Condenser Microphone:

This is the greatest mic I have ever stumbled across. It is great and picks up the lightest noises. I heard a swirling sound after i hooked it up, but only later found out that someone had flushed the toilet and it picked it up. This thing is great and offers great tonality and great pickup for vocals at least. I would imagine it would also be great for podcasting and stuff too.

Great Mic

By Hitmaker D

from Brooklyn,Ny

Comments about CAD U37 USB Condenser Microphone:

this mic works great, easy to use just plug it in to your computer, fix the audio settings, and record. However, I'll have to admit, this mic isn't for those who are advanced in recording, in other words the quality fits the price.

Pretty Good Microphone

By Leo

from Atlanta, Georgia

Comments about CAD U37 USB Condenser Microphone:

I do not regret buying this microphone, for the price it gives you a great sound, and with a pop filter your golden. Great for the price, great for beginners, overall great mic. Don't expect the best sound ever cause you must remember its cheap but for the price it packs a pretty tough punch.

This Mic Smokes!

By tuneturner

from NJ

Comments about CAD U37 USB Condenser Microphone:

I needed a decent mic for narration and voice over for some video work. My former mic had a muddy feel to it. This CAD mic Smokes Period. The clarity and quality of the sound for the price is outstanding. You will have to play around a little to get it right as it tends to record hot and mutes your speakers. These are simple adjustments by turning off the AGC or using in the -10db switch and deleting the mic in your audio devices where it is listed as a speaker. Great mic for the price. Can't wait to record some music with it.

What I think of the CAD U37 Mic.

By Rob

from Detroit

Comments about CAD U37 USB Condenser Microphone:

I like this mic. At first I had trouble with it because I didn't have a pre-amp but I figured how to bypass that. "Recording Devices/Playback/Disable 2-Generic USB Audio Device." This worked for me but I don't if it work for everyone. My OS is Windows Vista.

good mic

By Michael

from Chicago, IL/ Storm Lake, IA

Comments about CAD U37 USB Condenser Microphone:

This mic is a great buy, I've only had it for a few weeks, and I was very surprised with the sound quality for this price. Be sure that your software is compatible with USB microphones before you purchase it. Very sensitive, it picks up vocals very well, and has adjustments to reduce popping, and/or distortion.

Beware!!

By Jesse Babini

from Lancaster, PA

Comments about CAD U37 USB Condenser Microphone:

I read the reviews of this mic before I bought it, and they all sounded pretty good. I bought the mic for recording vocals because I am a producer/musician but when I plugged it in I was very disappointed. The mic does not allow for you to hear anything when it is plugged in, which means artists cannot stay on beat or on key. I read on a forum AFTER I opened the package that said it was a one-way input microphone. The quality is alright, but not amazing, and I am now stuck with a microphone that I cannot use and will most likely sell on eBay. This mic may work for Podcasters, but for musicians, I would not recommend buying it.
