I needed a handheld mic for interviews in an acoustically untreated room and this mic performed outstandingly. The length made it easy for the interviewer to get the mic up close to the talker, and the directional pattern did a great job of rejecting the liveness of the room. A little EQ was used to make the highs a little crisper and the lows more solid (this mic does not have a great deal of proximity effect). The rejection of room reverberation far outweighed the added step of adding EQ after the fact; as a result my recordings have very good intelligibility. Transient response and signal-to-noise ratio were good. Handling noise and plosives ("p" popping) were not a problem. The price was right, and I love the fact that it comes with a windscreen. All in all this is one of my better mic purchases.
