Very good microphone. It includes a studio headset, Cakewalk LE X1, tripod, and also a pop filter. White noise don't matter to me, because I can gate, noise or hiss reduce. Sound is louder on the L channel than the R channel, but I just have to switch from Stereo to Mono on sound input. I've had this microphone for about 2 and a half years, and it's still performing brilliantly.
If you're really tight on money, want to get your sound digital without getting an DAC, and just want something with better clarity than your laptop mic, these are a good start. But don't get too comfy with them for long.
