Neat Widget C USB Microphone Blue
The Widget series by Neat consists of three USB microphones, each with its own unique appearance. The Widget C in blue and yellow sets itself apart form the rest in its own way, and is suitable for a wide variety of applications. Because it plugs directly into your computer, you can use it for anything from recording music and vocals to making Skype or Facetime calls to creating YouTube content and voice-overs. There's no need for extra drivers or software - simply plug the Widget C mic into the USB port of your Mac or PC. To top it all off, Neat has even provided it with an internal shock mount and built-in pop filter! What more do you need?
As mentioned before, this microphone can accommodate a great many applications. Because of its cardioid pickup pattern, it's able to capture the desired audio source directly in front of it while virtually ignoring unwanted background noises at the sides or back. The built-in accessories further improve your recording - the pop filter minimises the effect of hard tones and plosives and the shock mount prevents any accidental bumps, ticks or vibrations from ending up on your recording. According to Neat, this microphone is also highly suitable for professional use and is ideal for conducting conference calls via Skype or Facetime when the audio quality needs to be crystal clear.
When developing this microphone, Neat clearly wanted a device that not looked good, but that was functional as well. You can adjust the stand this microphone is mounted on in height, for example, and because it's a full-range microphone, you can take advantage of a sample rate of 96 kHz and a bit rate of 24 bits. With a frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz, it offers a sublime sound quality as well. Even though each of the three Widget microphones look very different on the outside, they contain the same high-class capsule and circuitry. This way, Neat has been able to maintain a certain level of quality and remarkable audio characteristics. In short, the Widget C USB microphone is the complete package, leaving virtually nothing to be desired.
