I have this mic, those who are saying it’s better are bugging, the mic gets very distorted if you get a little loud and it picks up an intense amount of background noise however it is very good for the price I’d say
Hey So I'm tryna start a lil music thing and am wondering if this is good for a start. And also, if anyone uses Fl Studio can someone show me what plugin to use for a "gate" so background gets paused as you stop speaking?
This review has been super helpful, thanks! I was trying to figure out what I really need to get started, and I learned about what kinds of things I can get away with from step one and still get a good sound.
That soft thingie that usually goes on mics would get rid of lots of harsh highs and this mic would sound better.
But anyway, it sounds even better than Blue Snowball.
Other 30$ mics are not that good, so don't go buying any for this price. For example, BM800 and BM900 cost the same but their sensitivity is much lower and so you have to amplify sound which adds lots of noise, but after you clean it, you start getting echoes or compressed sound. FiFine is one of the best for this price.
Dude! You're cool! Subscribed and clicked the notification bell lmao. I am thinking of switching out my neewer nw 700 for this mic tbh... What do you guys think? Should I switch? Btw I make gaming videos and livestream on youtube, so I would use this mic for gaming commentary purposes.
The noise is in the same frequency range of human vocal, when you speak, software is hard to tell which frequency is noise which is not. If the noise gate setting doesn't help much, you can turn back to basic method to reduce volume level and do post-production to eliminate noise.
I just want a pretty cheap one for gaming because I hate wearing big ass headphones so I can wear phone ones, this is not bad at all I actually really like it and the fact that it comes with a stand that's a big W for Fifine
Yes, by using a USB to lightening adapter, the mic will work with iPhone 7. You can get such adapter on App Store. But the price is almost as the same as the mic itself. Perhaps you can get such adapter on Amazon, but we can't be sure of its compatibility.
I'm listening to this video at high volume with headphones (ATH-M50's) - there is next to no hissing or noise on the unmodified FiFine microphone.. you might want to check your monitoring setup if you're hearing a hissing noise. That said, I DO hear it, but I have to really pay attention to pick it up - not something I would notice if someone used this microphone for youtube audio.
@McFlave i actually have this mic and can confirm that there is background noise hiss when using. It is easy to get rid of but its deffo there. I use mine for discord and gaming only so not too noticeable.
@MrDifferentTV hey, thanks for the quick response. That's a good point, the encoding is likely high-pass filtering the junk out to the point where you can barely hear it. Do you personally hear the difference between the YouTube video and what you hear on your computer?
Thing about YouTube is that they compress the audio and video plus it's being double rander so you might not hear it over YouTube. But I can clearly hear. It's not my monitoring setup it's YouTube and all mic like this at this price point have hiss and noise in them
The main difference is capsule. K670 is bigger so the sound source appears more engaged. A little more bass is added with less background sound picked up. And the integrated circuit is better improved, so the self noise is a bit lower. Plus the minor difference of extra headphone jack and distinctive mic stand.
If I'm honest, the Snowball sould sound a bit more detailed and warmer. And K669B does a better job for louder and clearer sound, but also becuase of the sensitivity, which may absorb more background sound. But when it comes to the price, you can buy almost two K669B with the budget for a Snowball. Perhaps you can use the extra money on a boom arm and a U shape pop filter, which will remarkably help the noise reduction and makes your studio looks better.
Or you can use the same amount money for our desk mic K670 (http://bit.ly/fifinemicrophone-k670). We can be sure this one will outstripe Snowball and reach the level of Yeti (when it's at cardioid mode).
He use with a professional DAW. But if you want to remove noise, the principle is the same in every software. You get the piece of recording where there's only noise. Let the software extact the noise frequency, like getting the noise sample, then it knows what kind of sound frequency is regarded as noise. You apply the noise reduction feature of software to the whole recording track. The noise will be eliminated.
Around 3-5 inches. Though according to some buyers' response, 1-2 feet is fine for them as well. You can turn up volume a bit to get clear sound when you're further away from mic. But still it's better to use it within the best pickup distance.
Thanks for the purchase. And you can test the mic first to see if you can live with that noise floor. Cos that level should be fine for daily audio use. But if you think there's really a need for adding noise gate, or for better sound qualty, you can do just do so. The methods varies according to different software you use. There're tutorial videos out there on YouTube for your reference. And you can also go with the noise gateor app to see if that works.
Yes, it's good choice for starter on gaming as well. You can also search some gaming video about this mic to see how it works out actually and then make the decision.
Though two thing you may want to know, one is that you will not get rid of the keyboard striking sound and you may need to put it closer to your mouth around 5 inches to get the best result.
Never mind, it's alright. I just don't want to boast our own product while defaming others. They are really the good choices, though you just cannot call them well worth the price. And that why our budget USB mics come into the market. Anyway, we hope the K669 will not let you down if you decide to buy one.
Oh $**t, I've mistaken you for the Youtuber who uploaded the video somehow. I was tired and it was late, my bad. Of course it's unreasonable to ask you such questions haha. I really like the Fifine mics line, and would definitely buy the K670 if I was able to for a reasonable price. I'd buy the K669 if I was more experienced with mics and knew how to lower noise myself, so I'd rather pay some extra for a higher tier mic. Thank you anyways for answering, you guys are doing a great job with your products. Although I mentioned the Yeti and NT, I doubt I'll shell out so much money for either of them, as they are both 110-120€ mics.
Haha, it seems not quite suitable for me to recommend any one of our competitors' products. But if I am honest, and in this moment when you need to pay more to get our K670, then both Yeti and NT are good items (though both charge a bit more for the price).
I think the Rode NT is a better choice. The cost of Yeti is so high partly because of the three capsules, but in actual use and in your case, one mode have already done the job fine. So I don't think you need to spend money on the function you don't need.
Thank you for answering and your suggestion. Sadly I can't find Fifine K670 available in Europe. It is possible to buy it on US Amazon, but then I'd pay like 80-90€ for it, which is too much, at that point I'd rather buy a Yeti or Rode NT. Of those two which would you recommend more? Though I don't think I should invest so much in a mic, since I don't have plans to use it for anything too professional. But I do want to record some acoustic guitar and maybe sounds for game effect sounds or something. Also, great video man, keep up the good work.
If we are honest, we would say this K669 may have slight more noise. To get rid of such little bit noise, I think there is no need to spend 20 bucks more. And if your budget is around 50 dollars, Fifine K670 will be a better choice than a 50-buck Snowball.
For sure, the conclusion above is just based on our test, you can check out more videos to find your own conclusion to make the decision.
TooGoldGamer it picks up background noise easily so you’re going to need to turn down the volume and either speak loudly so you don’t sound quiet or put the mic really close to your mouth. i bought a mic arm and pop filter to reduce background noise while also not sounding too quiet.
Thanks for your kind words, it's not perfect as the video points, but it's really not bad for or should be one of the best choice for the price. But I am sorry that the only way to mute it, is through the setting of software or turning the on-body control down. Anyway, hope the mic will work out great. But if there is any problem, feel free to contact us!
Sorry for such issue. But the mic does not have any echo component, so we think the problem is definitely solvable.
Not sure what kind of setting you have made, below are some preliminary suggestion for your reference.
1.Turn down volume level, both computer’s and microphone’s to around 40% (you may have done so).
2.Put the mic closer to your mouth but do not eat into it, around 3 inches. The less background sound absorbed by this cardioid mic, the less likely you will get echo sound.
3.Get to “properties” of the default “playback device” under “Sound”, click “enhancement” and disable all.
4.Get to “properties” of “USB pnp audio device” under “recording device”, click “Listen” and uncheck “listen to this device.
If they do not help, get back to us with your test result on Facebook page or website (you can find those in our channel description). We will manage to help out in a short time.
I'm using a Sontronics STC-2. Quality wise it's a step up from the Rode NT1A in my opinion.
As a portable USB mic that I take when I am traveling I use a Samson G Track. I have used it to voice artists abroad as well as other artists on location and it's got a very good sound.
I would love to have a good tube mic so the SE Electronics Gemini 2 or the Sontronics Mercury are the ones I would love to have. Other than that the AKG C414XLS would be my other choice due to using older version from AKG a couple of decades ago and it had a great sound that I like.
