I have used many microphones throughout the years. It's important to know this for what it is. It's an all around mic, but a very good one at that.Kind of like an olympic triathlete. It Is very, very good at many things, but not great ant any one thing.

Same goes for me..... I bought one after reading the SOS review and liked it a lot.... for ac. guitar and also for performing on stage for my voice. So I bought another one.... great value and great sound. A lot of people seemed to be weird about some Rode mics but this is a real sleeper.

This mic is a great all-around, general purpose mic and is my go-to for field recording. I've just purchased a second one because my first (purchased in 2009) stopped working after it fell into the Gulf of Mexico earlier this year (2015).

This is my second M3. I use it to mike loud speakers at wedding receptions. And it's been great!

Let's be clear. This is a very good mic, not just for the price but overall. If only for features, it would already be a great deal : Mute switch, Hi-Pass filter, 10 or 20dBs pad, obviously it runs off 48 volts phantom power, but will run from 24 volts up, and you can run it off a battery if...

I bought two of these and, so far, they meet my expectations. Sensitive, apparently fairly robust and free from phantom power challenges. Pete

A great microphone. The forward only sound field had made this my mic of choice when I do not want ambient sound on interviews. At this price point this IS the mic of choice. It is self powered so it does not put a load on the video camera battery.

I have owned many mics over the years including the AKG C1000 which is the only other contendor in this category. I can honestly say the M3 now sets the standard for mics such as this. Low noise, great sound and cool features such as a high pass filter and battery status LED.
