I purchased this item at a different store before I found Calumet. The sound is fine, when it works. But it has complete drop-offs and lots of static. There is no isolation between the mic and the cord. When the speaker moves, the friction of the cord can be heard. I checked this with an old wired mic and there was no such sound. Poor electronic design.
