The whole SlingStudio system is 5 stars. I'm docking the CameraLink because for no good reason that I can figure out it uses the obscure micro HDMI connector. It's very inconvenient. And the unit only comes with a micro to Mini HDMI cable. Very strange choice in my opinion. On the other hand the ability to use a 5 volt micro USB connector to charge it or to provide backup power is very convenient.

I have been looking at different options for years to stream video up to my Youtube channel (All required physical cabling). Once I saw the SlingStudio system come out I bought it right away. Has worked great with out any problems. Has great quality. Learned the system in minutes. Updates/upgrades happen over the internet via the MySlingStudio application. I would (and have) recommended that people buy this solution.

Superb Product from Sling they make Vidiu and Live Shell look like they are not trying. My first streaming affair was a funeral and boy did this perform. It was so easy my 16 year old granddaughter mastered it a two hours and everything went flawless. The quality is exceptional whichever is used. The recording to SD card or hard drive flawless and great quality. I must say I am so happy they do not charge for the software like Teradek it is FREE which I think is great after spending $1500.00 for the equipment plus the camera link and C- adapter. Don't know why these guys took so long to do this but I guess good things come to those who wait. Had to borrow the money to purchase this but it was well worth it.If you are into live streaming , broadcasting on the road this is the product to buy. The WiFi which on the others are very iffy Sling is perfect, if you are losing bandwidth it tells you and you can reduce it without going off air.....exceptional. Even when I use my iPhone the quality is so good you may think it's a regular video camera. So much more to say so little time. Great product Sling you have done it...much thanks

Sling Studio is almost the perfect product to handle all your live streaming needs. The product is well thoughtout, and future upgrades would crush the competition if they can incorporate what is already available from other competitors in the Sling Studio.Examples:1. The device should be able to control the remote cameras (iPod, iPhone, iPad) like zoom-in, zoom-out which is available on Switcher Studio. This would be nice to have.2. 3 or more HDMI in ports on the Base Station like the ones available on the Cerevo Livewedge which gives you 4 options to go wireless (with wireless extenders) or hard wired for greater reliability - I spent too much money to have to buy a switcher - for my switcher to use hard wired cameras.3. I shouldn't have to spend $300-$400 extra on a wireless adapter to show a PowerPoint when my PC is right next to the Studio Base if I have the Main Camera already plugged into the only HDMI port.3. ChromaKey capability which is available on the Cerevo Livewedge or full motion overlays, Sling makes it easy to add clean professional overlays but motion overlays would be nice.4. Separate the requirement that if the iPad goes down the livestream also stops. This is not an issue with Livewedge, because the built in encoder can operate independent of the iPad in case of iPad failure or hotspot failure during mid-stream.Sling studio does combine the best features of Mevo, Livewedge, Switcher Studio and Roland switchers into one product, which makes it almost perfect. I sold my LiveWedge for the SlingStudio because of the remote camera option to use iPads and iPhones as free add-on cameras. However, if I have to pay close to $400 dollars extra to show a PowerPoint from the Switcher I might have to sell this too.**Update**Unit is already dead after one day of use. The WiFi card seems to have burned out and the unit is useless without the IPad. The customer service is the best on the market and is sending me a replacement. I didn't get the overnight service that another reviewer received so until the 5-7 day replacement comes from SlingStudio, I will have to tell our sick and shut in to wait until we post a recorded service instead of participating with the congregation live.***Update***The SlingStudio Customer support is fantastic. They have support hours for 8am-8pm PST so people on East Coast can usually reach them when needed. They shipped a replacement unit within 3 days of my request, and sent a free return shipment box even though it was purchased on Amazon and not with Sling. The new unit is working and is rock solid so far. I can easily see the Wi-Fi Card wearing out again when we use this for church services so make sure you have an extended warranty and keep the box. I would give this 4 to 5 stars if Sling would expand the HDMI in Ports from 1 to 2 and provide an option to connect directly to the unit so you are not 100% reliant on the Sling Wi-Fi to connect to the base station. In order to show a PowerPoint during service you have to buy a $300 wireless extender if you plan to use an HDMI camera with the unit during service. We should be able to make use of the USB C port to connect a PC for presentations. However, after buying a Cerevo Livewedge, using Switcher Studio, and trying out a Roland Switcher, the SlingStudio is the best combination of all 3 on the market. Our Church service finally had that professional look we were looking for while operating a on a shoe string budget. Why 3 stars... See comments 1-3 which are still needed for the device to be a 5 star system.

 I have to keep posting new reviews because for some bizarre reason Amazon won't process the updates I submit. So; *** April 15th, 2018 ***The first unit failed during its initial outing. I tried multiple resets and it wouldn’t connect to anything. The blue light just flashed for hours, and the orange light would glow steady after a reset but wouldn’t broadcast its SSID to connect for setup. Too late to return it. Working with customer support right now to have a replacement unit sent out. Will update review pending resolution.*** UPDATE #1 - April 20th, 2018 ***First of all, I want to extend my utmost gratitude and respect to Sling's PHENOMENAL customer service team! WOW! The woman who received my initial call was very polite, knowledgeable, and within a few short minutes had initiated the process to ship me a new unit! Shortly thereafter I received an email personally from Rich Edgley, Sling's Director of Customer Experience, with a UPS Overnight Express tracking number, and barely 18 hours later I had the brand new replacement unit in my possession! Customer service simply doesn't get any better than that! I spent several hours that evening testing out my new SlingStudio using various camera and audio configurations and everything worked tip-top as it was meant to without any hiccups. I'm providing a two day livestream for a client at the end of the month at which point I will update this review with some more detailed analysis of the SlingStudio's implementation and performance, along with some photos and video. My only real gripe is with the SlingStudio Console app. I wish it had a feature that would automatically switch between the different connected cameras at a user-defined interval; an auto-pilot if you will. That would be SUCH an awesome feature to have for the one-man-band, or allow the operator of the console to walk away from it for a minute or two without it being stuck on one camera angle. As of now, connected cameras can only be switched between manually.I'm really quite surprised none of the developers thought of initially building that feature into the app. I would deduct one star from this review for that oversight but that wouldn't be fair because this isn't an app review and the SlingStudio device itself is really quite a remarkably well designed piece of gear in solid build quality, aesthetic detail, and versatility in features and connectivity. As of right now I'm boosting my rating of this device to 5 stars as the design, concept, and functionality of the SlingStudiuo is fantastic, and because there simply isn't any other device on the market right now in this price range that offers wireless multi-cam 1080p HD livestreaming with such simplicity. I look forward to really putting this replacement unit to the test and will provide further feedback as that happens. Please stay tuned for updates.*** Update #2 - April 29th, 2018 ***First outing with the new replacement SlingStudio was a resounding success! It performed FLAWLESSLY over the course of a two night event I streamed for a small music venue where a wildly popular band performed. The SSID broadcast never dropped, the WiFi signal on all the cameras and my iPad stayed strong and never lost connectivity, and the SlingStudio Console app didn't lag or hiccup AT ALL! I am absolutely thrilled now that I have a fully working SlingStudio system, I absolutely love it and can't say enough about how it's perfect marriage of flexibility, ease of use, and stunning results have really opened up a lot of possibilities for streaming on so many levels, and I really want to thank the customer support team at Sling once again for genuinely caring about their customers and their products!Here are some photos of my setup for the event I just streamed, along with a terrible video taken from my phone of the SlingStudio Console app in action:

I was much too excited to receive this product for a huge project we had coming up, only to to discover it was defective and did not work. Because of this i was out nearly $2,000 and could not use it for the project deadline it was bought for... I'm sure had this hub not been defective it would've been amazing. I still like the concept of the sling studio, so will have to see what the replacement does i'm very disappointed i lost quite a bit of money and wasn't able to use it for the purpose it was bought.Problem: The blinking blue LED light, never went solid. It was almost as if it froze on start up.

I was unable to make the Livestream Broadcaster Pro work today with the latest Verizon modem USB620L. They no longer make the Verizon 295 which is still recommended on the Livestream website, and AT&T also does not make the Momentum any longer, and they state on their website that the unit does not work with the latest AT&T Beam USB modem which is the only one you can get now.I was on the phone multiple times today and their support could not help me make the unit work with the Verizon USB 620L modem (paid $250 for it!).So basically I am unable to use the Broadcaster Pro with a USB modem. (I am shooting a rally on the street tomorrow.) So I guess I will return it. If I ran Livestream I would immediately handle a situation like this - outdated modems listed on the website and an inability to get the device working with a new customer.Everything else about your company so far has been great, but this did not work for me and I would see a returned non-working product as a serious problem if I were you.

I really like the mission of Livestream and we increasingly use the service to provide the families of our school with online access to live events and activities at our school. We've been using a computer and old video camera (from the 90's I think) to stream our events. It took me about a year to get to where I could wrangle the resources to purchase this latest Livestream Broadcaster Pro (directly from Livestream-sorry Amazon). In any case, the first unit arrived and I noticed a couple of things that caused me to immediately be concerned:1) As I took the unit out of the package for the first time, the little rubber feet (3 of the 4 on the unit) stuck to the packaging, basically falling off the unit. Now, I realize that maybe that's not the biggest deal to most folks but the investment we made in this device was substantial (for us) and I expect the technology I purchase to hold together for a while before this sort of thing starts to happen.2) I noticed that there was also a scratch or mark on the main display in the upper left-hand corner that was about 8mm long. Again, I noticed this immediately out of the box. The mark did not appear to effect function and was probably more an annoyance than a critical issue.To their credit, when I contacted Livestream they quickly agreed to return the first unit and replace it with a new unit. So, I give them high marks for their quick response. Unfortunately, the second unit has pretty much exactly the same issues. I followed-up with their service people and suggested that it would appear, based on my experience, that they have either a manufacturing issue and/or a packaging issue that results in a couple of cosmetic damage outcomes. I genuinely like being able to purchase something that is actually made in America. I would also like what I purchase to be of the highest quality possible and, regretfully, based on my experience with these Livestream units, I do not believe that is the case with this Broadcaster Pro.I will follow-up this initial experience with additional information once I am able to put the unit through some field testing with an HDMI camera (once we round one up). I'm uploading a short video on YouTube to share my experience as well.

This is a piece of proprietary hardware that ONLY works with a proprietary streaming service. The fact that the name is livestream only serves to confuse the buyer further in the description of this product. I have asked for it to be clearly spelled out in the description but we will see. Also if you look at the box itself, it is exact in every detail to my VidiU which is open to all streaming services like YouTube, Wowza, influxis and hundreds more that show up everyday, Obvious it is the same hardware running a different software. As a broadcaster for many years let me say that purchasing the Broadcaster Pro will severely limit your growth potential. This one is going back,

It wouldn't imbed a like to websites unless you got a big package that is 2,000 a year with them and then when we went to get a refund they fought us about it and basically told our church no we won't give you your money back. The years membership we paid for and used for 5 min that was 599.00 for the year was useless to our needs so service and costumer service all was bad and you can't talk to a live person unless you have the 2,000 - 10,000 a year account unless you throw a big enough fit

Believe what others have said: it doesn't work. Decided to give it a try because some people have gotten it to work, and some of the reviews from those who didn't seemed to be people who thought it should be plug and play. I've worked with digital video and streaming for years, so I know what I'm doing with a device like this. Got it, figured out how to set it up on my camera (not as easy as it sounds, had to find a YouTube video as their instructions are mostly worthless), and testing from home was at least able to get it to log on to my wifi network and act like it was going to start a test stream, but it failed at the actually live streaming part. Undeterred, and know that my home network might not have the bandwidth, I took to our actual streaming location where it wouldn't even communicate with the app on my phone, no matter what I tried. An absolute dog of a product. Sent it back and got a refund.

I just received the Lifestream Broadcast mini. I does not come with a manual or instruction. There are no instructions on there website to assist one in setting up. It would not pair with my phone and I did not have a password for the WIFI. I will be returning it today.

What a piece of CRAP!!! I bought two. They don't work. When I tried to do the firmware update, one locked up and won't even boot anymore. I tried to contact Livestream (the people who made them) and they have not been responsive. My first email go an automatic reply. The next day came a "my product expert" is out of the office reply. While waiting for some information from the "expert", I received a third email which said:"We contacted you a few days ago to see if you had a chance to review the latest update from Pedro, the Customer Advocate assigned to your support request.We haven’t heard back so we’ll solve the ticket for the time being.We hope you resolved the issue successfully, but, if this isn't the case, simply reply to this email within the next few days and your ticket will reopen again automatically."Really???Their customer service stinks!
May 18, 2016
I've only streamed a couple of events (I bought this to broadcast hockey games) but so far it's worked great. The reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that there are no included instructions; you must go to the Livestream site to read them. (I know that's the way the world is heading, but this is a device that's going to be used on-site at various events, and having to refer to the web could be problematic. For a $300 device, there should at least be a cheat-sheet included.)That said, the device paired to my phone easily and setup was straightforward. New events were simple to create on the Livestream app, and I was able to stream flawless video on the "Adaptive High" quality setting using a mobile hotspot with an external antenna. Having used the previous version of the Broadcaster, I feel that the Mini -- controlled by the Livestream app on your device -- is an upgrade. Faster, easier, more flexible. Battery life seems good too, I streamed for about an hour and 15 minutes and still had full battery on the indicator. It does get a little warm in use; you'll want to keep it out of your pocket so air can circulate around it. I mounted it to my tripod using the included bracket.
April 20, 2015
This has to be one of the hardest devices to figure out. The nice packaging it comes in when you buy it from the livestream store is about the best thing that it has going for it now. I just got this, took me a few emails to even have it delivered, when it did arrive, it would not pair with my account from the android phone. Took it to several locations to ensure it was not my service. Won't find the phone, customer service is a paid feature so don't expect any type of support. Don't waste your money, they have the monopoly but the worst service and product. Easily will take your money but wont fix the device. Buyer Beware of this device!

It has some serious blanking and sync issues when plugged into a Mac and the camera is set to progressive, when I switch to interlaced it works flawlessly. I don't know if this is a bug with my setup or not. I am on the latest firmware but it randomly drops out when I have it set to progressive. Otherwise the image looks great, and it makes it easy to injest video into our system.

Solid device for streaming. Although I would never use my sources directly into it, I love the quality of compression it brings to the streaming output!

It’s exactly what I expected and more. Works great with my 15” MacBook Pro late 2016 model. Paired with my Canon DSLR via HDMI it even shows the info displayed on the camera screen which I didn’t expect but am delighted to have. I haven’t tried using SDI yet, but I suspect it will work great with my Blackmagic Camera.

It works as advertised and was super easy to get up and running. The only drawback is that it includes no cords and there is nothing in the description to warn you in advance so that you can prepare or order a cord.

I've tried a ton of headphones lately and these sound by far the best to me. I like generally flat sound. I'm more concerned with clear mids and highs and want present but not overpowering bass and low bass.Headphones I've tried include the following with my totally subjective sound rating on 10 point scale. YMMV.Audio Technica ATH-M50X - highs a little subdued for my liking - 7Beats Studio 2 Wireless - Subdued highs, some mid bass emphasis but not overpowering. 6Bose QC25 - A little weak on bass and weak on highs, best ANC. 7Bose QC35 - Can be a little bassy, especially at low volume. Bright highs. Best ANC. 9JBL - EVEREST 700 - Way too bassy. 5.JBL - Everest Elite 700 - Much better than non-Elite, 7OPPO PM-3 - Excellent, expensive. 10Sennheiser 202 - yuck. Too bassy, no highs, but cheap. 4Sennheiser 280 - well balanced. 8Sennheiser Momentum M2 - Close to perfection. 9.5Sennheiser PXC-550 - wireless noise cancelling. These are excellent. 9Sony - MDRXB950BT/B - Extra bass says it all. 4Sony 7506 - Perfection 10Out of all that I've tried the Sony 7506 are closest to perfection, to live performance. They are not bass heavy at all but can produce comfortable solid bass down to quite low frequencies. Tonal balance leans towards the upper mids and highs. Bright but not harsh. You end up hearing subtle sounds in the music that is missing with other headphones. Those who want more bass or don't want bright highs won't like these. But for my listening taste this matches perfectly.They are also very comfortable. Many of the headphones listed above are not as comfortable. Either tight band or thin band or ear cups that aren't big or deep enough. These headphones are great. Biggest disadvantage vs. many that I've tried recently is that these are wired... with a long heavy cord easy to get caught on things. I was looking for a wireless headphone. But ultimately I couldn't find one at a reasonable price that sounded anywhere near as good as these. Next closest was the Sennheiser PXC-550, but at $400, wireless wasn't worth an extra $320. I also found that there were times I didn't want noise cancellation. Too bad Sony doesn't make a wireless headphone with anywhere near this sound.Best of all, these are by far the cheapest of the decent sounding headphones I've listened to. The headphones in this list range in prices from $20 to $450.Highly recommend the Sony 7506... if you like this sort of sound signature.
August 17, 2016
These are my favorite pair of headphones I have tried so far. The overall sound of these are very balanced. This means the Low, Medium, and high tones are for the most part balanced out. You can easily look up a lot of information on these headphones. They are an industry standard which I have enjoyed owning for more than two years now.The overall design of the headphones is fairly good. They are structurally well designed for the most part.- Noise isolation is mediocre. You can hear people saying things through these depending on the volume.- Sound leakage on the original pads is fairly low. People won't have to hear your music when it is at a fairly loud volume.- Extremely long, coiled cable with 1/4-inch adapter. Possibly gold connections.- Sturdy cable design. Each cable bend point is reinforced with additional rubber. Soldering to the driver seems sturdy as well, it should be able to withstand most tugs. This is usually not an issue with the gargantuan coiled cable. The coiled cable also prevents a large number of tangles!- The headband is fairly comfortable. You could easily find a cover for it if it becomes a problem.- Cup adjustment pieces have numbers on them to ensure a specific setting.The problems I've had with these over time:- Headband will lose its tension between your ears over time. These headphones no longer fit as soundly on my head as they used to.- Faux leather pads will need to be replaced. I have included a picture of both of my ripped pads which I replaced with "Beyerdynamic EDT250V Headphone Ear Pads Black" these will create some additional noise leakage.- The wire that connects the drivers to the headband can get stuck in the housing. (see picture) This may wear the wire a bit.- Cable is extremely long. This can be an issue when you want to use these headphones outside of their intended purpose. The cable is generally a bit heavy, causing strain to the connections. I very often have to move it around to have it stop bothering me. The cable can be replaced with some soldering. There have been projects modifying the headphones to have a detachable cable. Google "Sony MDR-7506 Detachable Cable Mod" that I believe would improve the design of the headphones.- Like all over the ear headphones, these will be uncomfortable with glasses. They do become very uncomfortable after a few hours.- While these do come with a transport bag, even the fold up design makes them a bit of a pain to transport. This is to be expected.- Fold up design doesn't center the cups when the length of each ear cup is at minimum. (See picture) Not sure what this does to the longevity of the headband.- The blue portion of the "Professional" stickers on the sides are decals. One of mine peeled off. It looks similar, but is starting to disappear, and collects dust. (see picture)Aside from a few gripes, these are still my favorite set of headphones. They simply sound right. I was appalled to go to the store and listen to some Bose headphones and hear how bad the quality was in comparison: for a set of $300 headphones.These are undoubtedly worth the price. Don't hesitate to buy them if you can overlook the problems i have had.
January 18, 2015
I'm rating these five stars, but they do have one pretty big negative. They are excellent, studio quality headphones. If you plan to wear them out and about though (like the NYC commuter I am) they effectively also serve as earmuffs. That's all well and good in winter, but on the June day I wore them out, I was sweating out the top of my head and down my neck. Amazing sound quality, but not great for being out in the heat. In their defense, these headphones never made that claim. They never made any claims at all, as they are an inanimate object without speech capability. They do have the capability to deliver superb sound quality though, which is mostly what you want in a pair of headphones.

Razer Kiyo - Full HD 1080P Streaming Camera - Pro Webcam Optimized...

Razer Kiyo - Desktop Camera for Streaming with Illumination.

I purchased this camera to use for streaming on Twitch.Video quality is fantastic, the on board mic works very well, and it was plug & play with Windows 10 and Open Broadcaster Software.The camera includes a hefty clamp/base mechanism that can be used in a number of ways. You can either use it as an actual base and simply set it on top of your desk/PC/ etc. Or you can do what I did and clamp it to the top of your monitor.It would have been nice to see this integrated or detected by my Razer Synapse software (I am running a Razer keyboard and mouse) but it is not. That could be a good thing depending on how you look at it.The integrated light ring was a nice feature and one of the primary reasons I purchased this camera, but I actually realized upon testing that I didn't ultimately need it since I have quite a bit of natural lighting in my work space. I could see the light ring being very useful for someone in low light situations. The light ring itself has a few power steps so that you can adjust it on the fly by simply turning the ring of the camera.

The bottom third of the ring light stopped working less than 30 minutes out of the box. Very frustrating. I'm returning it for a replacement, but I've lost confidence in this device for now. I'll update after I receive the replacement.

Never got it to work. Light would not illuminate. Will return but they appear in backorder.

As a very casual streamer, I was content with my old Logitech C910, but was really excited to try out this new Razer Kiyo. 1080p at 30fps or 720p 60fps and a ring light that really helps in poor lighting situations like I have. I either had to turn on more lights than I wanted, or try to point a lamp at my face so the image wasn't super grainy. With the Kiyo, the lighting is built in, so I can play in a darker environment but I'm still well lit and the image isn't grainy at all.The camera doesn't require any installation with Windows 10. Just plug it in, and it is detected and it's ready to use in Open Broadcaster Software (OBS Studio) for Twitch or wherever you want to stream. The camera has a lot of mounting options. It can hang on your monitor, sit on a flat surface, or mount to a tripod mount and be positioned however you need it. When the camera is on, a small white light turns on, since the ring light can be turned off. To adjust the light, just twist the outside of the camera to make it brighter or dimmer. It's almost too easy to use.In actual use, I was really impressed with the quality of this webcam. I tried 720p60 at first and it worked well but for a streamer who is mostly sitting there, 1080p30 is better for me and sharper because I like to zoom in with software and fill the frame without having the camera right on my face. This is the first time I used extra lighting, and at first it was a little weird to have the ring light shining on me the whole time, but I got used to it quickly. You can stream in almost no light except for your computer monitor and this camera and it works fine as long as you aren't too far from the camera. The autofocus worked well, but I usually stream with a plain black backdrop so it wasn't really a challenge for my older camera either.The Kiyo is very small and portable and collapses pretty small to take with you if needed. The Kiyo has a built in microphone which works ok, but I'd recommend a dedicated mic, whether it's your headset mic or something like the Razer Seiren X microphone. If you just have regular headphones and don't want to buy a special mic or headset, the camera mic will work, but it's best if you are in a quiet area since it does pick up ambient sound. my computer is fairly loud when I play games, so it picked that noise up fairly easily. Still, it's a good option if you just want to plug the camera into your laptop, hang it on top of the screen and talk to someone on skype with normal headphones. I realize not everyone will be using this for gaming all the time.Overall, I was impressed with this Kiyo camera. The build quality is nice, better than many Razer products I've used, and it worked immediately right out of the box. The image quality is good and it works in very little light. I would recommend this for a streamer starting out that doesn't want to invest in too much camera and lighting equipment. If you buy a cheap piece of green screen fabric and hang it behind you, you can have a great looking chroma key webcam stream in OBS very quick, even if you've never streamed before.

This review is not coming from a gamer, but rather a person who creates instructional video e-learning in many different environments. It's one thing to have a studio in which lights can be situated to create the best look, but being "on location" is a much different story. Thus, the built-in lighting, plus this unit's ease of portability, makes it an excellent choice for anyone who needs to create "talking head" video away from the comforts of an office or studio. In the past I've made do with available lighting, but there are times when it doesn't look the way I'd like. After using this Razer Kiyo, I'll tell you that having the light can make a significant difference.LIKES:** No software required on Windows 10. Plug and Play!** Adjusting the light is EASY. Just turn the ring around the light as if you adjusting the volume knob on a radio.** Portability. The tripod mounting option is awesome for my needs. It also sits on a flat surface easily without it having to sit precariously. Very user-friendly for recording interviews in someone's office.** Compatible with OBS. I've been using Open Broadcaster for a while now. It provides awesome technical director capabilities so I can easily create engaging e-learning. I highly recommend it, but I suppose my touting that program is for a different review. As for the Razer Kiyo, anyone familiar with OBS will appreciate the easy interface.** FPS options. These are not options I've had before in a camera, and I see a lot of value in having them. 1080p / 30fps seems to work well for my head shots, but I did a trial doing a two-person interview, and the 720p / 60fps seemed to work better for that.DISLIKES:** Built in mic. It doesn't have a super-professional sound quality. Don't misunderstand -- I'm glad this unit precludes the need for an external mic, and the built-in mic is okay for many of circumstances I need. But after a bit of testing, I can tell there will be times when a separate mic will provide much clearer recording.That's about it, really, for dislikes. And it's not even a dislike -- more of a "could be better." Overall this is a really nice camera and there is little to dislike about it. For anyone who creates video instruction or does live webinars, I think it's a great camera and I highly recommend it.

I spent the last couple of hours experimenting with this headphone/mic, and I've finally got the pre-amp and dynamics processing adjustments to my liking. This is a great product.I should have made this investment years ago. It would have saved me several thousand dollars trying to find the right microphone for my studio setup and recording style. I narrate audio books in one of the bedrooms at my home. I've treated the room as much as I can afford, but the fact is that I live in a typical metropolitan neighborhood with cars passing by, lawnmowers and blowers going and commercial and military aircraft buzzing the area on a regular basis. In the past, the only time I have been able to record in piece and quiet has been between the hours of midnight and 4:30 AM. But with the BPHS1 headphone/mic, I can record most anytime, unless my neighbor is mowing the lawn, or the jet planes are specifically strafing my house.The BPHS1 doesn't have the nuance and versatility of the Neumann TLM 102, but I only need the BPHS1 for one thing and one thing only: narrate audio books. In that capacity, it's able to keep up with the Heil PR40 and the Shure SM7B. And if I were doing podcasts, the BPHS1 would be the go-to mic above all the others.One thing I've noticed, which can be annoying if you're not used to it, is the fact that approximately the first foot of cord coming from the headphone is very sensitive to vibration. Whenever it brushes up against anything--including my shoulder and the desk in front of me--I can hear the rumble in the headphones and in the recording. To alleviate this noise, I have to sit perfectly still and try not to move my head while recording. I've also noticed that with the headphones placed squarely on my head, even the movement of my jaw causes rumble (albeit not nearly as noticeable).I bought the BPHS1 new, but at a greatly reduced price because the box had been opened. All the parts were there, and there were no marks or damage to the equipment. Additionally, the warranty is good for a year.So there you are. I'll update this review in about six months, but until then, I love the BPHS1. My setup includes a Universal Audio Twin Duo with Thunderbolt, Cloud Lifter, Rolls headphone amp. I record using Logic Pro X.UPDATE SEPTEMBER 4, 2017.I found a work-around that alleviates the rumble cause when the cord rubs against anything, and the rumble caused when my jaw moves. I looped the first three or four inches of cord where it comes out of the headphone then zip-tied it to the ear cup swivel. This prevents the cord from hanging to low and touching my shoulder as it exits the ear cup. Next, I draped the first foot of cord over something nearby on the desk. This prevents the sensitive part of the cord from touching my chest, my arm or the desk. The other nine or ten feet of cord can hang free or sit on top of the desk because this portion isn't sensitive to vibration. Finally, I place the headphone on my head so that the cup with the boom mic rests on my temple while the other cup rests over my ear as it normally would. That seems to have cured the "jaw rumble" completely. True, I only hear out of one headphone, which isn't pretty, but it's the best solution I could find. By the way, I've tried rolling off the lower frequencies, filtering the lower frequencies, etc., but none of those options seem to have any effect.

 The headphones themselves are about as unremarkable as it gets, but they’re very durable. There’s minimal padding on the headband, but the adjustment band is metal. The can housing is made of a hard plastic that can take a beating. I have dropped mine and kicked it around a large number of times since March and you’d never really know. And I know the ones I worked with for local broadcasts were always taking a beating.The microphone arm is the most easily-positionable of any headset I have ever used - I’m really not sure how gaming headset companies get this so wrong all the time. Better yet, it can spin all the way around to go on the left or right side of the talent’s face. While yes, this is a stereo headset, the intended use of a broadcast environment where everyone’s headphones are hooked up to headphone splitters and fed mostly mono tracks anyway, left-right channel balance is not important. In many cases, the user will only have one ear covered anyway so they can still hear the realtime sound around them. Otherwise, the closed-back cans seal out a lot of outside sound.The microphone capsule is HUGE. This is a great vocal mic, designed specifically for background noise rejection and picking up clear and crisp vocals. It’s a big dynamic microphone with a cardioid pickup pattern. And again, you want those windscreens on to prevent breathing noise.The audio cable attaches with a little thumbscrew to keep it locked and secured into the headset, which is nice. The cable is long and carries both the XLR microphone output to run to any mixer or interface with no need for phantom power, and the 1/4" headphone signal. The main complaint here, is you can only pull the headphone jack and XLR jack so far apart - and even on my little audio rack this means having the cable pulled tight to reach both the headphone output on my mixer and the XLR input on my pre-amp a few U's lower.

After studying the various options, I settled on this card for the best way to get my VCR tapes digitalized. It included, so its hype claimed, the ability to connect to just about anything, and included both a nice simple conversion software and, should I decide to get all fancy, which I've been known to do with a pre win10 software, good editing software as well. It had excellent reviews and was one of the few options truly compatible with win10. So...I ordered it.Package arrived. It contained the card, an s-video to two(?) RCA connections converter, and a DVI to eleven connection octopus. Yes...eleven, tho to be fair, they're all marked and it's for both input and output, so that's OK...EXCEPT...I don't know about anyone else, but I'm used to video being one of four things...component, i.e. three connections, s-video, RCA or HDMI...with a couple of others for monitor connections. I'm not a fool. I know there are other options, but for something like this, I expected those options to be covered in their "we supply everything." Oh...the card does have an HDMI input, so I suppose that one is covered. And supposedly (if you look at the connection diagram from the outside of the box) these should all be covered...with included hardware.Now, looking at the labels on the octopus (hmmm, what do you call an octopus with eleven arms?) I see that they do indeed have the video in three parts, handling component, but that doesn't explain the s-vid to blue and green converter. Are we just going to forget about red? Besides, I'm trying to connect a VCR. It doesn't have anything other than a simple, yellow, single composite RCA video out. I might assume that a composite video out to blue and green (red?) was left out of the box, but it was stuffed, so somehow I don't think that's the case. Besides...wouldn't you need a converter to take composite vid to component?Now...there might be a way to solve this with what they included in the box, or maybe composite video is supposed to go into just one of the component video inputs and the software will sort it out, (the manual does say the express software auto-detects the input) but since the hardware setup documentation is pretty much nonexistent, I wouldn't know. There's no actual information included in the packaging, other than that diagram from the outside of the box. The software comes on two SD cards in the utterly non-informative packets shown in the pics.Which brings us to the SD cards. I tried to read these on three different computers, none of which could find them (and yes, they're all high end computers) I finally flicked the little copy-protect tab on the side, which, for want of a better phrase, startled the drive into finding the disk, wanting to reformat it. I then pulled the disk, replaced the tab, reinserted and finally got at the software and manuals...for all the good the manuals did. They seem to have one manual for several different products. Sorting out what was applicable to my card was, frankly, more trouble than it was worth as I still don't know how to connect my VCR.I admit, I'm lazy where it comes to manuals. I've put computers and home AV systems together for thirty years now (tho I pretty much bypassed s-vid and am still trying to figure those two cables....) I'm used to being able to put something together, bring up the software and at least get basic functionality without all the cue-cards. This has me flummoxed and increasingly irritated. I'm heading out to do more research and see if I can find an answer, but IMO I really shouldn't have to do it.

The capture quality was first-rate. HOWEVER...1) The audio would desync on the HDMI Out back to the TV. Captures/streams were always flawless, but the audio desync on the HDMI Out back to the TV would start in sync, then drop out of sync on a whim. Strangely, the PC sound would stay in sync with the TV video, so you could still monitor and hear the sound if you did it from PC whilst streaming. But if you just wanted to use TV sound, nope. This was with their latest drivers. I was working with support on that until I hit #2 yesterday:2) -ANY- program which uses the ASIO4ALL sound driver will crash on load if you have the Blackmagic drivers installed. This includes any DAW (in my case, FL Studio 20, Cubase Pro 9.5, and Studio One 3.6.5), any standalone synths or instruments (verified with Kontakt 3.8.1 and Omnisphere 2.5), etc. The only thing those all have in common is ASIO4ALL, and it apparently collides so hard with the Blackmagic drivers that it won't even let the host programs have a chance to finish logging. Logfiles were truncated. It crashes that hard.Since I do music production, that is a dealbreaker for me. The product is being returned today, as it is unsuitable for use for the above reasons.If you do music production, and you use ASIO4ALL drivers (most people do), -DO NOT- get this card. There is no workaround from Blackmagic.To their credit, Blackmagic support didn't faff about; they told me up-front that there was no fast fix, if any, and let me get on with returning it, rather than spend a month trying various diagnostics that wouldn't prove anything, as most companies do.

Excellent hardware. Make sure you download the latest driver though, because the included driver did not work at all.Picture quality for streaming is unbeatable. Also acts as an additional display device for video editing software like Premiere, Resolve, etc. This card will enable you to have DCI 4K full screen video out from Resolve.Presently using it with Open Broadcaster Software to stream live. Works beautifully.

While I can't give it 5 stars (yet) because i still need to break them in, I did receive them yesterday and am highly satisfied. The earpads feel like mini pillows compared to my last pair of headphones which were the "highly rated" Monoprice #8323 over the ear DJ style headphones that I've used over the past year. And yes, if you can't tell I'm not a money objective audiophile, but a broke kid from the city who just wants to get his money worth when it comes to audio equipment. I enjoyed the Monoprice headphones for a while, but these headphones blow the feel, sound and tone away!!!!I took a cue from "MKBHD" on youtube and bought these headphones because he put them as one of his top 5 headphones for 2015....and he was right. The sounds are super crisp, the bass can be adjusted using the flip ports at the bottom of each speaker and again,....these headphones feel like i have two small baby seals as headphones. The feel is silky smooth and I could wear these headphones for hours...years....decades. Hahaha...ok, maybe not that far but you get the point!Overall very good sounding headphones that wear awesome! I'm still breaking them in so i'll give a fuller (is that a word?) review later on. Thank you for reading!
July 31, 2016
Excellent, well-balanced sound (though the bass is adjustable if you want the sound less-balanced). The cans look bulky, but the whole thing is surprisingly light on your head and comfortable. Padding is generous, both around the ears and over the connecting headband. I've had no problem wearing these for a few hours at a time.The set I bought came with two cords—one of which is relatively short and includes an inline-mic for smartphone use, while the longer cable has a screw-on 3.5mm jack adaptor. It's nice that the cord with the mic is a sensible length, since you're likely to have something like a phone pretty close at hand and don't need meters of extra cable flapping around. The microphone setup works perfectly with both my iPhone and iPad. The mic housing includes a pause/play button, but no volume adjustments, which is a pity, but not worth taking off any points.Overall they feel solid and well-made. There are certainly cheaper options out there, but you can feel and hear the quality you paid for when you put these on.
August 9, 2016
I went through a lot of trial and error, along with having to return several different headphones: the DT-770, Bang & Olufsen H6, ATH-MSR7, and ATH-M50x. I've also tested out many other headphones in-store.What I love about the Custom One Pro is that it has great tonal body, a nuetral and clear midrange, and a crisp/clear treble response that maintains great presence yet is never harsh. This serves as a fantastic tonal foundation that can then be tweaked to suit literally ANY bass preference with the port adjustment settings. And the bass response is not gimmicky in any way, rather each setting (and the many other settings you can easily set in between the main four click-in positions) sounds like very solid and natural frequency response.That all said, the only issue I found is that the Custom One Pro's midrange response can be slightly too recessed on some tracks. Yet, this is the kind of thing that can be easily remedied with a custom EQ, since the Custom One Pro provides such an outstanding and solid tonal base (from bass to treble) as a whole. So, keep that in mind.
August 19, 2017
I bought these a little over a year ago, and while the sound is OK, seems a little heavy on the bass frequencies. This I could live with, since I use them primarily for live sound or on my laptop. The Sony MDR 7506's that I was using previously, but were exhibiting a lot of cosmetic wear, seem much cleaner sound-wise than the Beyerdynamic set, and cost about half as much. But my biggest complaint is that with the very little occasional usage these got, both of the ear cushions have fallen off, the part of the plastic covering over the ear pads, located behind the sharp edge of the flange completely separated, so the ear pads just completely fell off. This has really changed my perception of Beyerdamic's reputation for quality products. Now this set is totally unusable. I have not found replacement ear pads for this model.
March 5, 2017
I've owned these for over a year and while I love the sound quality and the customizability of these headphones, the earpads are notoriously bad - however I (literally the day I'm writing this) bought a pair of Brainwavz Replacement Memory Foam Earpads for Large Over the Ear Headphones, Brown and found that with a little convincing (and a little patience) they will fit the Custom One Pro. My original earpads began falling apart probably 6mo. after purchasing and have since been absolutely shredded by gentle, daily use (see attached picture). Great headphones and would absolutely recommend them, but expect to replace the earpads with with originals from Beyerdynamic annually, or find something nicer from the after market.

The good:-Pretty easy to use, once you get the app.- Small package (but not very mobile)-The navigation button is pretty cool concept, and works well (but can be a pain if you have complex wifi passwords to enter)-Works well when plugged into ethernet-YouTube live stream integration is seamless and super easy to setupThe bad:- This product needs a hardware refresh.- It's form factor indicates that it should be mobile, however the wifi connectivity is appalling. No 802.11ac support, cant get more than 3-4Mbps on either 2.4Ghz/5Ghz to 802.11ac/n OR g AP sitting right next to it. May not be an issue for 360p streams, but if you want 720p/1080p not very practical. Had to use a 802.11ac wifi connected to laptop --> then bridge that connection via ethernet to Viduu to get enough bandwidth.- 1080p streaming indicates needing 7.2mbps BW on the box, however even with more than 10Mbps upload on a dedicated pipe, 1080p is very choppy.- Battery life is less than 60 minutes. Again, not very useful when you are walking around.- Boot up time takes for every and the unit is very sluggish when starting/stopping streams- Tech support --> SUCKS! No response, no clear troublshooting advice.

Wifi is unusable. The internal Vidiu speedtest function tells me 200kbps with the Vidiu right next to the Wifi AP. My iPhone speed test tells me I'm getting 10 Mbps up.Alright, so I resigned myself to keeping it connected via ethernet. I get everything configured, and create a test live stream to Facebook (private to just me). Everything is going great, I stream for over an hour, no problemo. I leave everything plugged in but turn the Vidiu off and go to bed then come back the next morning to stream "for real." First issue: "No Video." I replug the HDMI cable: "No Video." I turn the Vidiu off then on again: "Not Ready." That's when I notice that the "menu" button/controller on the front of the Vidiu doesn't work. The Vidiu is locked up.Anyhoo, 2 resets later, I give up and am returning it.
August 10, 2017
I purchased this unit in order to live stream our church's services to Akamai and Wowza servers. The devices small size is great for portability, since it can be battery powered or AC powered with the included adapter. It can be frustrating fumbling with the tiny navigation controls, but fortunately you don't need to do this often once it's initially configured. The free android/iOS app is very helpful here, since you can connect to the device over wifi and make the configuration changes that way. We have used the LiveStream Broadcaster in the past and this is very similar, except the Broadcaster is locked down to only use LiveStream.com's servers. This VidiU can be used w/ many different servers.
March 31, 2015
The product itself works as described. Its meant to remove the need for a computer. I would highly recomend that you check your internet speed before you invest in this because I was using this to stream to youtube live events and the quality was very poor. I'm sure in part it was my internet but I still expected much better quality then I was getting. Also, make sure you download the app. It makes the process much easier.
April 22, 2014
Horrible. Says its connected to my Wifi but does not reliably show up in Live:Air. Only works half the time. For the price it should work ALL the time. Yes, I managed to upgrade the devices Firmware but took ALL AFTERNOON rebooting the devices, reseting to factory default, etc. Etc. Etc. I have a support request into Teradek about these things but apparently its a problem and the solution is to run ethernet which defeats the ENTIRE PURPOSE of this device. I purchased these to avoid having to run cables.
July 10, 2016
I know a newer version exists - The Vidiu Pro which can record your stream in mp4 format via SD card onboard. However I couldn't get a hold of one when I needed it. So I decided to buy the Vidiu for a live stream via Youtube for a client of mine.The streaming quality in HD format was great. I did a streaming for a high profile client and used this VidiU and it worked like a charm.No headaches associated. You just plug via HDMI from your camera to the Vidiu, and hook up an internet connection via Ethernet or WiFi, and you can stream live to Livestream/Youtube/Ustream without doing much more than login into your streaming account and setting the desired stream quality, etc...Overall this is a very good piece of equipment which stream up to full HD quality streams at 5Mbps. I'm a professional and I hated having to use multiple pieces of equipment (laptop, converter, etc) to create a live stream. This little device does the job nicely for 1-camera (or multi-camera environment) streams. It doesn't seem to overheat too much, and I can stream a long time if I connect it to power source without overheating (i streamed for up to 2.5 hours in HD 720p and it worked like a charm). When not connected to a power plug, you can stream about 60-minutes or more.I really recommend it. Their app works pretty decently on smartphone and tablet.The only downside is that you have to stream via their App on the ipad if you want to add text / photos / images to your stream (if you don't want to have to do it on a laptop but rather use an ipad/tablet)...

This box is AWESOME! It's easy to set up, get running, and do whatever with. Unfortunately the built in wireless doesn't work well for streaming. The building I was in has enterprise class access points and I was the only one there and the quality suffered significantly vs. the wired network. Otherwise it's awesome.
September 1, 2015
HDMI in, Cat5 out, turn on, choose streaming service, choose event, broadcast.Simple to use. Super glad I chose this unit.And yes, it does take forever to 'boot up'.At $700 it's expensive, but it would have cost you $20 grand 20 years ago to do what this thing does.A few years from now it'll be an app on your iPhone for $20.

I have hooked up 3 HD cams, 2 laptops and record on SD Cards with the BM Video Assist 4k while taking the HDMI out to my laptop for a LIVESTREAM using wirecast. I take an additional PRGM out with and BM SDI->HDMI and transmit wireless to a TV. It handles all this without a problem. For the audio, I hook up an 8 channel mixer with 4 wireless mics and go into the ATEM via XLR. I am pushing this machine hard to make sure it holds and so far....its SOLID.

I got 2 of these and returned them. Maybe it was because I had to fit them on kid's ears (for a school theater show), but they could not be bent easily into a new shape without breaking.

My old shure 93 works so much better. This headset created a nasty humming/ static sound in the speakers. When I put my old mic back on my old one worked perfectly. This is a cheaply made product, and the earhook does not stay on your ear.

This is excelente to give presentations. I think it should be the first option when buying the Shure BLX14/CVL-H10 and not the one that comes with it.... it is a waist and an unnecessary production of a mic that won't be used...

I use this for teaching in my church and love the quality and feel of this microphone. Fits perfectly with my Shure bodypack. Highly recommend it!

I usually stay away from bundled packages, normally purchasing things separate (mic, mic mount, etc...). However, I took a leap on this product and couldn't have been happier.Sennheiser is a fantastic product. I have used many different mics but this one for the price takes the cake.I pair this mic with the H5 zoom. I have had other professional businesses ask me what I use and are just as amazed.Pros:-Great sound quality-Easily set up (may need to purchase separate mic stand which is helpful)-The accessories are of great quality.-Bang for the buckCons:-NoneOther:The one thing to be aware of is sound. This is considered a shotgun mic, it does a fantastic, and sometimes unwanted job, of picking up sound and noise. Know the environment in which you will be recording, as long as you have control over the noise level you will receive a great product.

As others have said, "Don't skimp on your audio!" This mic sounds great. This mic delivers way above its price in my opinion. I have used it for interviews indoors and outdoors with fantastic results.What I like:-Very directional sound as you would expect from a shotgun mic-Very clear, true reproduction of the audio being captured-AA phantom power is very handy-Build quality is superb-The furry windscreen works great outdoors.-Sounds great with my H4n (which is notorious for poor pre's)What I don't like so much:-The "shockmount" is pretty pathetic. I picked up an Eggsnow shockmount which is far superior and I think it was only about $20

Likely the BEST MIC I have EVER bought. Forget Rhodes Mics, this is the Pro quality I've been looking for. Great battery life and AMAZING sound quality.

I need the microphone for my Panasonic GH5 camera. The Sennheiser MKE 600 is a very good microphone. It is not noted that it only sends a signal to the left channel. For sound in both speakers you need to do post audio work. Splitter cables are available to put sound on both channels but it lowers the amplitude out of the mic and introduces more noise. The microphone is ideal if you have a preamp that will mix to both channels and then to your camera. Compared to the Rode VideoMic Pro it has a slightly better signal to noise ratio. The sound curve is a bit more linear as the VideoMic Pro pushes the lower frequencies more. The MKE 600 is more of a professional mic for more specific applications. The Rode VideoMic Pro is a bit more versatile for direct cameral mount without the aid of preamps or post audio work. I would say the MKE 600 and the VideoMic Pro are comparable for their price. For a standalone microphone on the camera hot shoe, I like the VideoMic Pro a little better. I repeat, if you are going to record to the left channel and then copy to the right channel in post-production then the MKE 600 is better. With the listing of more complete specifications the MKE 600 would be a 5-star mic for many people.

I'm a fan of the brand but this didn't meet my expectations, especially for the price. With the wind cancellation mode enabled it turned all lower volume sounds 'robo'. My search continues for a good sg mic.

I've been using this microphone for a film I'm working on for the past year. it has held up very well and produces great sound.
April 21, 2017
Mics like these just didn’t exist at this price point back in the old analog days. You’d spend a grand easily for a Sennheiser that could do the job.Get the bundle like I did. The dead cat is a must.

One of the best microphones for filmmakers. The quality of sound is top notch.

  Much better than the (dirt cheap) Neewer 3.5mm Hands Free Computer Clip on Mini Lapel Microphone (3X Lapel Microphone) but less great than I was expecting based on reviews. I tested on several recorders and a phone, and while they sounded OK, they were a bit too sensitive to background noise and echo. For now, it is my primary go-to lav until I find something more omnidirectional. They do work well for interview work. My biggest complaint is that foam windscreen does not stay on well at all and as it is so small it is exceptionally easy to use.Check out my video where I compare it to other mics side by side with other recorders.

I use the actual $130 Senheisser G3 mics and wireless systems every day for work. I bought these for my freelance video/audio set up at home and they have almost the exact pickup pattern and are actually a little more sensitive/louder than the originals. They don't have a removable pop filter like the originals but they are very small so it hasent been a problem. Easy to hide under garmets, has a fantastic sound, and a fantastic price. Only thing is the cord seems thinner and cheaper and is about 1.5 feet shorter than the originals, but that hasent been a problem. Still plenty long to run for the transmitter to collar with length to spare. I'll be buying more!

Got this for my Panasonic GH4, and was hoping to use it with my multi-channel recording interface as well. Works great, however, my downfall is that I'm tech-savvy, my use case was extraordinary, and I did not realize how these lapel mics work. The Mic-J 044, as with other lavalier mics, are condenser microphones which require power to operate. External recorders such as the Zoom H1 and others, DSLR cameras, wireless belt packs, even computer sound cards, provide what is known as "Plug-in-power" with anywhere from 3-5 volts to power the mic. This is much different than the 48-volt phantom power you would see on an XLR-based mixer (don't try to use it, as it will likely destroy the mic). If you want to use an entry level lav like this in anything that doesn't supply "plug-in-power", you will need to get (or build) a battery power supply, not just a simple adapter from 1/8" to XLR. (There are several out there, even here on Amazon, for around $15). Also, note that the Sennheiser locking 1/8" TRS connector is not balanced. It is wired as a mono (T is + and R&S are -).In any event, I'm looking forward to getting lots of great use out of the two JK Mic-J 044's I purchased, and pleased with their performance.

I bought this as a possible replacement / backup for my Sennheiser g3 lav.Pros:+ the clip design makes it easier to position and hide than the g3+ audio turned out greatCons:- slightly shorter cable- poor design of the connector clip onto the g3 wireless belt pack. Feels very cheap when screwing it into the g3 and I wondered if it was even screwing in (it was that bad. That said - the recording turned out great and it did work)- less build quality than the g3.For the price, it seems like a fine option but it didn't live up to my expectation and will be relegated to a backup lav instead of my primary unit. Perhaps I'll test it out some more and start using it more but for now - backup it will stay. If you found this review helpful, feel free to click the helpful button.

This is a great lapel mic for the money, I got this mic for my sennheiser g2 system. The sound is very nice and clear, with a good flat tone, and you won't need to add much volume. The build is not the best, the cable is very thin, thats why i gave it a 4 star. I will buy another one of these back up. I produce music, I am very hard to please when it comes to sound. So go for it!!!

This is a great little microphone. I have only had it for about a week now, but on times I have used it I have captured some great sounding audio. I am recording through this lapel mic into a Tascam DR-03 recorder and getting great results for the price. I think this microphone actually has a fuller sound than the professional Sennheiser lapel mic that cost 5x the price. I would assume the build quality is better of that microphone, but what I have heard of the audio only I prefer this little JK mic. I would definitely recommend this mic to anyone in need of a lapel mic on a budget.
April 27, 2017
 Great product... sound clean and works beautifully. Only thing to remember is that records in MONO.... so you'll have to duplicate the channel wgith a software (Audacity will do) in order to hear it in both left and right channels.

From my test this mics sounds every bit as good as a Sennheiser ME2 lav mic when used in the Sennheiser G3 wireless system recording into a 5D3 or a handheld recorder. It actually is a bit more sensitive than the ME2 which is a good thing as the preamps don't have to work as hard. It's a little smaller than the ME2 so it's easier to hide. The cord is thinner and flimsier than the ME2 so I wasn't crazy about that, but as long as the talent isn't rough with this and you take care of it, it should last. Regrettably I had to return this lavalier because it requires "plug-in" power, a small voltage greater than 2 but less than 10 volts, and wouldn't work with my secondary wireless system transmitter that does not supply plugin power.

This board was for my third hackintosh which replaced my aging 1156 socket Gigabyte board. With the i7-7700k CPU I also bought the whole setup is FAST. Coupled with an SSD drive and 16GB of RAM, High Sierra runs smoothly. I opted for a GTX 1060 6GB GPU as well. The latest Clover has no problems running the Mac OS and Windows 10.

Bought this board and paired it with an i5-7600k and a single GTX 1080. Primary use is gaming and I wanted to be able to overclock the cpu and run DDR4-3200 memory. I easily OC'd the processor to 5.1 GHz with 1.275 VCore. I will add that I have custom water cooling.This board (GA-Z270-Gaming K3) is not sexy. No fancy RGB, only red. I see others have had problems fitting multiple GPUs for SLI. But that was never my intent. My expectations were exceeded. My system easily overclocked and is now performing at a level that would have cost me hundreds more.

I'm using this is a higher end business workstation to take advantage of native NVMe. This didn't let me down. Using the "Profile 1" in the RAM configuration, it picked up all G.Skill Ripjaws V RAM timings without issue, and Windows 10 screams on it.I'll be building a few more of these for the same client as they're very happy with the performance.

This board is very well done, and the only ITX board I could fine with a shroud, which was important because this was an open case build. All connectors are along the edge, save the HD audio connector, so it was very cable routing friendly.However i wouldn't have chosen this case if there was another option. If your building an ITX case in something like a Thermaltake P1, then this is the go to. But if your not, then here are some things to think about;There is only 1 usb 2.0 header. If this board was in a case that was closed off, then I wouldn't be using TT HD120's or a Kraken. I used these two because I was doing an open setup and needed the nicer looks. Both require an interface to a header or a USB port. (By the way, for a clever manufacturer there is a gap here; header splitter, as both devices really only need 1 port.). I chose this board for much the same reason; the shroud along with the rest of the on board components really make this board look nice in the open air. To pull everything off, I ended up having to attach the 120's Controller to an external port. This obviously reduces the already small number of USB support.Second, this board doesn't come with more then 1 PCI slot, so your choice for USB expansion takes away a dedicated GPU. The number of ports isn't abnormal, but I would suggest that manufacturers begin to consider that has USB gets faster, it allows us to move components out of the case. When that happens, larger boards have options with PCI expansion, but ITX doesn't support that well, which is fine, if there were more internal headers and additional ports with the rear IO stack.Third the M.2 port on the board is on the back (common with ITXs, though some manufacturers try to get it on the front). I would have greatly preferred it on the front, but I do understand if it just won't fit. I'd rather have, and not be able to see it, then not have it all. That being said, I did have to modify the back plate when mounting the CPU cooler. I am using a Kraken x52, but it's by no means a crazy back plate, so I'm guessing this problem will come up with other solutions. Bottom line; if you have to put it on back, please move it away from the CPU back plate. I was luck I was dealing with plastic and I have a dremel. I could only imagine if someone was using a different solution that was metal, and didn't have a grinder of some kind. This seems to be a really silly oversight, that's easy to avoid.Beyond that, this board is clean, looks good, and was mostly a pleasure to work with. I think if the above was corrected, this would be the goto ITX solution.

Installation was easy and flawless. I used this board to put my new i7 7700K 4.2 CPU and G.Skill Ripjaws 3300 Memory modules (all 64GB)I haven't done any tweaking on the board and I went from going to bed at night to render a full-length movie (i7 950 / 24 GB RAM) in Premiere Pro CC2017 to about two hours to render a two-hour movie. FABULOUS! This combo with Passmark Rating speaks for itself ...97%-tile!Adding an another SSD drive for the render drive helps, I'm sure.I'm happy. :-)I haven't found any CONS yet.

My PC setup:Processor - Quad Core Intel i7-7700K LGA 1151GPU - MSI Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti DukeRAM - 16GB 2100MHzI have not had any compatibility issues at all. Works great. I recommend installing the Gigabyte App Center and installing all the updates in the app, especially the chip set update. Gaming performance was greatly improved after the chip set update. Looks good with the RGB settings. Fan settings are a breeze with the App Center and gives you the ability to set your own fan profiles. Seems very durable and holds up my GTX 1080 Ti well and it is a very heavy GPU. The GPU still sags a little bit but there is nothing you can do about that with a card that size. Very happy with it.

This motherboard is impressive. My last 3 boards were Gigabyte. It was very easy to setup as usual.I particularly like the case to board connector. They provide a little block that you plug the case connectors (power sw, led, reset, etc) into. Then you plug the block into the board. The LEDs on this are crazy. Can set to change based on temp or rpm or audio. Too wild.Performance thus far has been great. No complaints. Been running for a week with an i7-7700 and Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz.

Great z270 board for the price. Got it to replace a MSI board that had some bent pins somehow, affecting usability. The MSI board I got must have been faulty from the start (apparent by the beeper speaker not working on it while it does on the new board.) However, I am very content with this. The RGB LED lighting is beautiful and the selection of ports is what I expect from this price range. (The inclusion of a USB Type C part is very nice as well although I don't use it.)
