To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is quite an annoying product - whilst it has great sound when your mouth is directly over it, you literally have to be right on it for the other person to hear. I bought this together with the Avermedia 2+ and its been a nightmare to get it all working. I ended up giving up and selling the microphone and the capture card and getting another brand!
I got this microphone as a complement to my avermedia webcam to improve my video conferencing quality. I admit the audio is far better than that captured by the webcam, or by my BT headset. It's warmer, more natural, and very clear.
The problem I have with this is that it's not really unidirectional. I work from home in a small apartment so there's always some noise coming from the other room, someone listening to music, or opening and closing doors etc. The mic pics everything up, from any angle, which i guess in some case it's a good thing, but not for my usecase.
Also note that the connection is with a 3.5mm jack, so if you plan to use it on a laptop, make sure that it has the proper connector, or get an adapter.
This mic has a lot more pleasing rich bass in my voice and more detail in the mids and highs. The GoPro MediaMod mics are a let down. This sounds like an expensive mic with GoPro MediaMod preamps. Avermedia has some really good gear and this is on that list of their gear to buy with the PW513 webcam.
