Top Positive Review

I was looking for a set of microphones that I could use easily in a portable “podcast” recording situation. Basically something that was portable, not terribly expensive, but had decent enough quality for recording quality sound.

After reading some of the reviews for these Marantz MPM-1000 microphones, I decided to give them a try.

Overall I’m very satisfied with the value of these. They work well enough with my Zoom H6 recorder to take on location to record interviews and discussions. The stands are a bit flimsy, and you have to make sure that you position the mic properly so that they don’t “flip” to the side – but once they are setup and plugged in, it’s not much of an issue.

I like the included accessories (XLR cable of around 6 feet, shock mount stand, windscreen, etc…)

All in all, this is a great setup for those just getting into audio recording for voice/spoken work or podcasts, YouTube and the like. Keep in mind that you will need a USB audio interface or recorder of some sort that has XLR inputs.

I’ve also posted a video review of these, using one as the audio input so that you can hear a bit more of the quality!

Top Critical Review

I ordered the microphone after reading many positive reviews.

I decided to buy one as my first XLR microphone. I also own a Blue Snowball iCE, but wanted to have a ??real?? microphone for using it with my brand new Arturia Minifuse 2. However, once I plugged it in, turned phantom power and increased the gain, there was a horrendous static noise. It would not go away. I tried many different configurations and it did not work. Bear in mind I use a MacBook Air M1, all the connections are from the included cables (I also bought a Proel XLR cable just to see if the included cable was damaged). Nothing changed. I decided to order a replacement unit. Exactly the same thing happened. A friend of mine brought his Shure SM57 ?? and it worked wonders. Ordered the refund and had the two units shipped back.

I would not recommend getting this product.
