    "I've actually used a number of cheap microphones while filming YouTube videos and this one has the best quality. Way way better than the Blu Snowball. I've never once had the sound come out poorly. "

    "I needed a microphone for getting voices on my job. I work as an interviewer and always need to be hearing people talk when I ask them questions. The microphone is good because it is very cheap and on the road sometimes the equipment might get messed up."

    "I have to say- this product really changes the way you see the whole "Made in China" motto. This product not only costed me a mere $15, it came in an especially luxurious package complete with both a hard-shell case, and a nice feeling soft pouch. In addition to this- it boasts a very wide range of ear-plugs. Coming from a person who generally doesn't wear earphones (because they constantly fall out for me) these are the tightest and most well-fitting earphones I have ever bought. As if all this wasn't enough- the box comes with an instruction manual (and from an audiophile's perspective) these are some very nice sounding earphones! Upon buying this product- forget everything you know about "cheap products". I'm so happy I made this purchase."

    "Looks like a pair of headphones I just lost I would love to get another pair. I prefer over the ear since I have sensititiivity. That said, I think this is a great buy for most people and I shall rate this a 5 out of 5!!!"

    "When I started my own super cheap podcast, I tested a lot of microphones and the best I found was the SoundBot SB221 HD. These are actually headphones with a built in microphone, but they are really high quality and they produce a great sound. They are the best I found at such an affordable price. "
