Surprising micBy: Pete on 9 February 2020This mic surprised me with certain qualities it has. It has a nice round bass and top end is soft, almost reminiscent to ribbon mic. I find it works great on overheads, bass guitar and guitar, very suitable for vintage style music I record. For acoustic guitar or vocals I use other mics as this one lacks the punch and midrange of mics like SM57 etc. Over all for my needs, it is exactly the performance I was looking for.
By: Robert Mitchelson on 26 August 2013Omni 360 Mic works well in most situations. The packaging is very protective and the sound transfer is crisp and clear. This is an excellent mic for conference and meeting use where a bit more direction pickup is required
By: Chas onI bought a pair of iSK omnis in order to carry out binaural recording experiments (two omni's between a synthetic head to replicate the pickup pattern of human ears). I was so impressed by the crystal clear qualities of these mics that I now use them for drum overheads for spacey songs. The mics have a great range and are highly sensitive to high frequencies, crucial to capturing the shimmer of studio cymbals. I'm very impressed, and will be sure to try out other mics in the iSK range.
