If you know anything about recording or music production you know that Neumann microphones are basically the Holy Grail of microphones. Although many recording engineers would argue that the U67 and U47 are far better sounding, the U87 is at least somewhat in the grasp of the more average person as far as price is concerned. Anyway! After watching this video I was surprised and interested. I figured for just $22 I would buy the mic and try it for myself just out of curiosity. I read the raving positive reviews on Amazon and did some other research and decided for the price, it would be a fun experiment just to see what $22 can buy for a condenser microphone. So I bought the Neewer NW-800.
Even if you don't end up using this microphone often, I would say that it's still worth the price! It has a nice appearance and if you ever did a video (if you are an artist or band) or had an artist come to your studio to film a video, it would serve as a nice prop at the very least. The microphone came with a metal shock mount with padding, a wind screen, and an XLR to 1/4" input jack cable.
