Zalman ZM-MIC 1 Review

The Zalman ZM-MIC 1 is the high sensitivity headphone microphone which is known for is compactness and the ease of use it has. It is durable and somewhat sturdy and can actually endure some beatings or harsh treatments.

 

It relatively functional and is actually sensitive. To be honest, the sensitivity may be too keen for some people. They say that the microphone can even detect behind conversations other than the one using it. That being said, you should be aware that before you record, it is advised to have a really quiet surroundings. Because if you choose to video chat in a room full of talkative people, chances are, it will be a one big chaos for the person you are video chatting with.

 

What’s admirable about it is the minimalist look it has which means it can be brought anywhere minus all the difficulty or the bulkiness. However, be aware of the long wire it comes with as it may become a nuisance to manage especially if you are irritable.

 

Using this microphone for Skype video chatting, recording audio, gaming, or video recording is a real joy to do because it can really bring out the best in the audio quality. The voice it can produce is really clear and non-fuzzy. You will probably get your friends and family to compliment how you sound on the other end.

 

There may be instances wherein the microphone appears to be of bad quality but the truth is the problem may somewhat be on the computer itself. But then again, exempting the fact that it has a very long cord, it is apparently too good to be true. Yes, it is, and it just is not. The Zalman ZM-MIC 1 is a fantastic device. However, it seems that it fails on the longevity part as some say that it can perform at its finest for the next eight weeks and then fail altogether at the next.

 

Maybe, the reason behind that is its rather cheap price. Even if it has a decent quality, it overlaps the life span of it. The reason behind that may actually be to get customers to buy it often as it is great, it is cheap, but it does not last long.

 

To be truthfully honest, the ZM-MIC 1 is not horrible, it is fanciful. Still, on the contrary, it has the qualities expected for the price it comes with. The quality control may also disappoint a lot of people as some versions comes faulty right out of the box.

 

One little detail to pay attention to is the quality of the microphone’s clip. Many people have complained that it isn’t adjustable so it will be utterly impossible to fix it or place it in this or that direction. For the price, the Zalman is already robust and good enough.

 

It is true that a ten dollar mic should not be expected to last for more than a year as it will be a miracle. Hence, it can still improve in many ways as it has great potential already. The price may be higher in the future, but for something that has an inevitable quality such as that, who would not buy it?

  • The Good :
    Functional, sensitive, audible sound quality, sturdy, very affordable
  • The Bad :
    Poor quality control, short life span, too sensitive, very long cord
Our score:
4.5 / 5
