I sold mine
Owned and used extensively for 6 months before I sold it. Phenomenal form factor (small, compact, solidly built). The shock-mount is plastic and is somewhat flimsy and downright cheap compared to other mic shock mounts for the same price...AKG shock mounts are very expensive to replace if damaged. But, you buy a mic for its sound. This mic is very 'hot' ---gets lound quickly--- good for home recording into an audio interface. I see it working well for pop and hip/hop . The Timbre (sound of the mic) was wonderful, and it would have been my all-time favorite mic, except for a huge frequency spike that these mics have around 12-13 KHz, which can make them unacceptably bright on some sources. This mic might work well for you, but (fyi) a lot of used ones always up for sale on ebay. Again, if it worked for me, I would have been in love with it.
Better microphones out there!
I think for this price range, you'd be much better off going with a stereo Rode NT-4 as used by PPF or their VideoGo microphone for half the price. I would give it a lower rating, but Butch Vig used the 414, which is the same with more polar patterns on a lot of my favorite albums, so maybe I'm just not using it right. However, he might've modded his 414 with a better capsule, which is apparently something lots of top engineers do, because to me this microphone has a boring sound straight out of the box.
A creativity of your songs.
Once I start to making EDM, I found there're many EDM tracks have vocals. So I bought this for my track's vocal! it working stable with UR242, but I have the most important question after bought this microphone----It's really hard to find a good singer orz.....
