Why is massdrop only ever doing cheap crap mxl mics? I thought this is PRO audio not noob audio? Seriously you could offer them free and I might take one to turn into a table lamp. But the mxl line sounds terrible, dangerous to noobies because they dont know, so how about some real mics in here? Akg, EV, gefel, telefunken, neuman, sennheiser, sony, heil sound, shure, audio technica, anyyyy of those brands their worst entry level mic is night and day vs mxl
do you gusy ship to Puerto Rico?
Which mic is better in terms of audio quality (voice over): Rode NT1-A or this one?
Morphling
I dont know the rode but im gonna guess anything sounds better. This is a hobby mic not designed for any concerns of sound quality
Can anyone recommend a cheap desk mount for this?
Excited to get this mic. Lots of great reviews and I've needed one for the longest time. My interface has been lonely :p
what the heck massdrop, even in final price its cheaper on Amazon after shipping...

Yep, thats the difference. My shipping is nowhere near that.
oofle
Yeah it's $2 USD for me and it comes to a grand total of $64.99
because this is my first time with an XLR mic, i am running it through an external phantom power unit (innogear ig101) and that is going xlr into my pc via 3.5mm. the input from the mic is fairly weak. I had perceived that the phantom power would have helped me.
Crit
you'd probably want a preamp somewhere in your signal chain. a usb interface would probably have phantom power and a preamp available
leatherbarrel
Yeah I went ahead and get a red scarlet solo for $100

oh and how do we track the sipments
when will we get the mics?
Can someone give me advise? I may pull the trigger on this mic or the CAD GXL2600USB. I know there is a difference between usb and XLR. The cad mic comes with more features like a desk stand and pop filter and its EZ USB. But I do not want something that is not going to be anything better than my headset microphone (game zero's). The mass drop offer seems worth it for the CAD mic though. The features are very appealing due to bringing down the overall price, but is the GXL2600USB microphone worth it? Pros about the mxl770 is that it sounds like 'from reviews' a great microphone and there should be a vivid difference bettween this and what I am using right now. If I would go this route I would purchase a $20 phantom power adapter or w/e through Amazon as well as a XLR to 3.5mm. another more expensive route is the blue icicle which I need to look into more. I know XLR is so much better but I am trying to weigh total cost and performance with this decision. I hope one of you can give me good insight.
Appreciate the help!

Once received, our warehouse team will work hard to turn around your individual orders as quickly as possible.

Hey everyone! We talked to our vendor and we've decided to extend this drop until next Monday. Just to be clear this we will not effect the shipdate.

reported! "this will not affect..."
MXL 770 VS MXL V67G that is also a drop right now?
FellowYellow
770 = schoeps-style transformerless circuit, surface-mount implementation (which basically can't be modified), and a small-diaphragm capsule that tends to have a scoop at 7-9kHz and a boost at 13-16kHz. It has 2 switches, one for pad and one for HPF.
V67G = 2001 = U87-ish front end coupled to emitter follower and questionable 2:1 transformer, plus 32mm K67 LDC capsule. In practice, the negative feedback cribbed from the U87 circuit is not very effective, applying only about 0.2dB of corrective EQ @ 10kHz and 1.5dB @ 15kHz.
Both tend to be fine starter mics; for a ~$70 entry price, they're hard to criticize. I wouldn't pretend they'll give a premium mic any competition though.
So would this be good for Twitch streaming?
Komplexx2
Absolutely as long as you have an audio interface with XLR mic inputs. I'm using my Focusrite Scarlett 2i4 with phantom power. Works brilliantly.
doesn't come with xlr cable?
Can it connect to earphone?
does anyone know if this is the 1st generation version w/ thru hole construction? or is it surface mount?
jazzboxuz
It would be very unlikely that this is the older through-hole style mic. MXL stopped making them over 2 years ago.
This is a very nice mic and I personally think it's one for the best under 100 dollars! I have a YouTube video of an unboxing and how the mic sounds, I'll put the links below! You will love this mic if you get it. I also use the Scarlett 2i2. MXL770 Unboxing:

This drop has been over 200 requests to re-launch the drop for a little while now.. is there any update on contacting the vendor?
