Website design By BotEap.comAre you looking for a good and cheap USB microphone? There are a few to choose from in the under $150 range that can produce studio-quality sound. One of them is the MXL 007 USB microphone from Marshall.

Website design By BotEap.comThis is a stereo microphone that operates at 44.1kHz and 48kHz for smooth, rich sound. This is obviously important for musical vocalists, but it’s also fantastic for instrumentalists, interviewers, broadcasters, and podcasters.

Website design By BotEap.comBecause the MXL USB 007 doesn’t require an xlr device, you can simply plug it directly into your laptop’s USB port and take it with you to the park, a friend’s house, a field meeting, or your car.

Website design By BotEap.comMany reviews compare the Marshall MXL 007 USB Microphone to condenser studio microphones in the $500+ range. The microphone’s large gold-diaphragm capsules (two) along with low-noise electronics and ultra-modern digital conversion techniques they help produce a final sound that closely reproduces that of a professional recording studio.

Website design By BotEap.comThe MXL USB 007 can be purchased both online and at your favorite music store.

Website design By BotEap.comPersonally, I switched from offline stereo purchases to buying my stuff online. It all depends on your own personal preferences, but I have some reasons to support my own preference.

  1. Offline stores don’t have enough competitors to lower prices as much as online stores do. This is because your local music store has maybe five or ten other music stores in town to compete with, while the online stores have hundreds of competitors
  2. I’m not a big fan of sales tax!
  3. In the spirit of competition, many online retailers offer free shipping on gear!
  4. I don’t have to leave the house or be pressured by a salesperson.
  5. I can shop at many stores in a very short period of time, without wasting time or gas!

Website design By BotEap.comIf you want a microphone that produces a rich, professional sound, the MXL 007 USB Microphone is definitely worth considering.

Website design By BotEap.comIn all of my personal “homework” on USB capacitors, I’d say the MXL USB 007 actually ranks first in its price range, closely followed by the Blue Microphones USB Snowball Mic and the Audio Technica AT2020 USB.

Website design By BotEap.comAs always, I encourage you to do your own homework to find the best quality instrument for the most reasonable price.

Website design By BotEap.comIn conclusion, I will say that the MXL 007 is certainly a great investment for the serious home musician, podcaster, or anyone else who believes that portability and low cost need not compromise on production quality.
