K056 Microphone + Stand (Tripod)
Excellent on all levels.I didn’t find any external issues or problems with product quality.
Installation of the microphone is very easy and straightforward even if you don’t use the English manual, also provided with the package. This microphone is a PnP type (plug and play) device, so you don’t need to install any drivers and it’s compatible with notebook computers / PCs running under Windows, Linux and Mac OS. If you are planning on using it with a mobile device, such as a smartphone or tablet PC it most likely will not work. To my surprise I had partial success using it with the DOOGEE Mix, as for other smartphones It didn’t work well or the sound was very weak.
But if you are into experimentation, Since the microphone uses a USB type of connector you will need to buy a simple USB-OTG adapter converter and just try your luck with different smartphone brands. That said, This microphone designed mainly for Desktop PCs.
