Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Good sound quality and great accessories at a low price
The audio quality from the MXL770 is not very detailed, but it is clear and full. Combined with the shock mount and hard case, this mic is a steal for the price.
Pro Clear audio output with an emphasis on the mids and bass
The audio from the mic sounds full and detailed. The mids and bass are quite prominent, so recordings of voices and/or guitars will sound rich and full.
Pro You get a good quality carrying case with the mic
Transporting the MXL 770 shouldn’t be too difficult thanks to the inclusion of a carrying case. The case is made out of hard plastic with thick foam inside so the mic will be adequately protected when taken out of your home or studio.
Pro A shock mount is included
Excessive vibrations and similar issues relating to microphone mounting won’t be a big issue with the MXL 770. You get a shock mount with every purchase so mounting the mic should be easy and microphonics (mechanical vibrations that get picked up as noise) won’t be a big problem.
Con Recordings may sound muddy with this mic
The mic’s audio may sound dark or muddy. The highs are not very pronounced so some fine details from the recording may not be easily heard.
