We've had a few questions on these cheap Chinese mics - all of which seem to be the same thing in various colours & with various labels. - BM-800 NW-700 NW-800
The question is always pretty much the same thing...
- I bought one & it sounds like poo, how do I fix it?
The answer is always the same thing too...
- Get a cheap USB pre-amp with phantom power & a male>female XLR cable.
Could we nominate one as the best [not necessarily oldest] start-point to make canonical & then close all the others as dupes against that one?
Ones I've found so far...
The latest is Buzzing/Hissing issues which doesn't have the best question but may have the easiest to understand answer for newbies.
If we can pick a best question - or even set up a brand new one covering the obvious for someone new to the field & then drop a more finely-honed version of that answer into it, that might be the solution.
Obviously, we need one that Google can easily find.
BTW, my answer is based on empiricism. I bought one of these things for a tenner on eBay & tested it. They're actually surprisingly not appalling for a tenner, though I'm not going to be swapping out my U87 any time soon ;)
