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.


The device has an option to mute/unmute a conversation directly from the device.
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.
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.
It is compatible with a range of Android devices such as smartphones and tablets.
It is compatible with a range of iOS devices such as iPhones, iPads and the iPod Touch.
It is compatible with PCs and laptops running the Windows operating system.
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.
It is compatible with Mac OS X devices such as MacBooks and iMacs.
9.has omni pattern
Shure MV51
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.

Headphone output

With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
Has 6.35 mm standard jack connector to plug in your headphones.


A pop filter (also known as a pop shield) is a filter that is placed in front of the microphone to prevent popping noises when recording vocals.
A shock mount protects the microphone from physical noises such as a foot tapping on the floor or passing traffic.
There is a control panel on the device body, so you can easily access the volume control or remote without having to interact with a cable or another device it's connected to.
An LED sound level indicator makes it easier to monitor and control the audio level.
A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
With a touchpad, users can control the device by moving their finger on a touch-sensitive surface.


We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.


Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
