Mikrofonkabel passer ikke ind i mikrofon sokkel

Der følger et kabel med NT USB mini der burde være beregnet til mikrofonen, burde man synes. USB enden passer fint ind i computeren, men den anden ende af kablet som skal connectes med selve mikrofonen passer ikke. Det er kun muligt at presse stikket halvt ind. Dermed opnås en dårlig forbindelse som computeren naturligvis hele tiden fejlmelder. Jeg prøver så at presse lidt mere og så kører mikrofonen i cirka 3 til 4 minutter uden dårlig forbindelse meddelelse. Men når disse 3 til 4 minutter er gået er det igen galt med forbindelsen. Jeg synes det er ufatteligt at man ikke afprøver kabelforbindelser inden man sælger produktet. Derfor er det kun muligt at give 1 stjerne da jeg aldrig når hen til at kunne bedømme produktet ordentligt, da kablet ikke passer. DUMPET Mvh Bjarne

Sound quality

The lowest frequency that the mic can pick up. Better for recording bass.
Audio interface sampling rate/frequency defines the number of samples per unit of time taken from a continuous signal to make a discrete signal. Sampling rate determines the quality of a digital recording.
Microphones with a higher max SPL (sound pressure level) can record at greater volumes without the audio distorting.
The highest frequency that the mic can pick up. Better for recording treble.
Audio interface bit depth/rate describes the number of bits of information recorded for each sample. Bits represent the resolution. The more bits, the more accurate sound is reproduced.
6.Signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Rode NT-USB Mini)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Shure MV5)

A higher signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) means that the microphone can record a cleaner audio signal with less background noise, particularly as the volume level is raised.

Features

Microphones that have multiple polar pattern options can be used for different scenarios. The more patterns that a microphone supports, the more versatile it is.
2.has cardioid pattern
Rode NT-USB Mini
Shure MV5
A cardioid polar pattern captures audio in front of the microphone and is particularly useful for situations such as recording a podcast or game streaming.
3.has a mute function
Rode NT-USB Mini
Shure MV5
The device has an option to mute/unmute a conversation directly from the device.
4.has omni pattern
Rode NT-USB Mini
Shure MV5
An omni polar pattern captures audio from every direction. It is particularly useful when the audio source is moving around, or if you wish to capture the audio from a wide sound source such as a group of people.
5.Is compatible with Android
Rode NT-USB Mini
Shure MV5
It is compatible with a range of Android devices such as smartphones and tablets.
6.Is compatible with iOS
Rode NT-USB Mini

9.has hyper-cardioid pattern
Rode NT-USB Mini
Shure MV5
A hyper-cardioid or super-cardioid pattern is a narrower version of the cardioid pattern. It captures audio in front of the microphone at a narrow angle and is particularly useful when you wish to record a single audio source in a loud environment.

Headphone output

1.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Rode NT-USB Mini
Shure MV5
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
2.lowest frequency

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Rode NT-USB Mini)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Shure MV5)

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
3.highest frequency

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Rode NT-USB Mini)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Shure MV5)

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
4.Signal-to-Noise ratio (DAC)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Rode NT-USB Mini)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Shure MV5)

When a digital signal is converted to an analog one (for example when playing audio through speakers or headphones), a certain amount of noise is carried in the signal. A higher SNR means that there is less noise and the audio quality is better.
5.impedance

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Rode NT-USB Mini)

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value. (Shure MV5)

Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
