fifine amplitank K688 mic - techbuzzireland

The FIFINE XLR/USB Dynamic Microphone K688 is a simple to use audio product well presented in the packaging it came in, setting up this mic could not be easier to only requiring minimal technical knowledge it is basically a plug and play unit that is also well built and constructed with just one wire for power ( in our review model) and a mount to hook up to existing equipment and is a standard.

There is one volume wheel and gain wheel under the base and easy to control and is one of the easiest mics I have tried to use and gives a much better audio experience for those listening rather than using standard audio on the products you use, the sound is crisp and clear no matter where you sit or have the unit placed..

The XLR participation upgrades the audio team so that you can trust it in guarding the sound quality reproduction. Achieving a 93dB S/N ratio in the actual test, the extremely low cable interference ensures the sound can be picked up without a miss.

Dual ports of XLR and USB give K688 a next level of flexibility. Plug and play USB-C still retains its consistent compatibility on computers, tablets, and PlayStation, providing great convenience for your impromptu recording needs.

In USB connected mode, fiddling the comprehensive features on the mic body around your fingers will make you feel like a pro audio engineer, the mute button, live monitor jack are your weapon to observe unexpected audio during recording. With the microphone and headphone level controls, you can easily run a pre-recording check or even make adjustments.

The cardioid pattern always focuses on your voice. The flatter frequency response shows that the K688 maintains excellent performance in all ranges: Keeping the bass thick enough without compromising the warmth of the mids, the highs are bright and crisp for recording vocal details.

The matte metal finish caters to minimalist style, the shock mount does an important job of resisting the rumbling noises of tabletop, if you notice the grey foam cover on top of the mic, the thick flocked filter is designed to provide more pops protection when talking to your audience.
