Summary: The bottom of my copy of this microphone had paint that was chipping off! And this was a microphone that I just took out of the box brand new. I didn't sweat that too much since I just used a black colored Sharpie to even out the spots. Then I noticed something really obvious. The bottom of the mic has a PreSonus sticker that covers the area around the XLR connection. There were bumps poking through the sticker. My curiosity led me to peel off the sticker and I was shocked. The bottom was made out of plastic and the screws were fastened crookedly! I had to unscrew the screws and re-attach them so the tops were flush. I was baffled on how sloppy this was done. This was sloppy assembly and perhaps more quality assurance would've caught this. Lastly, the microphone is very 'bright'. Almost too top heavy in frequencies. I had to increase the low frequencies and decrease the high frequencies by a lot. I ended up getting a replacement for my copy and thankfully, this copy does not have the paint chipping or crooked fastener issue.
-If you do some EQ processing, this mic sounds wonderful
-Included windscreen does a decent job with plosives
-A better alternative to the Rode PodMic in my opinion
-Looks like an SM7B mini
-As I said earlier, some good EQ technique will make most mics sound great, including this one
-The paint was chipping near the base where you connect the XLR.
-Out of the box, this mic is too top heavy in frequency. I had to dial down the high frequencies and the mids so it wouldn't sound too harsh on the higher frequencies
-The windscreen smells like fresh rubber cement. I had to throw it in the dryer for 30 minutes to make the smell go away
-Lastly, there is no humbucking coil that I know of (and if there is, it's not doing a good job) to combat any potential EMI (electromagnetic interference). Thankfully, it's not too noticeable and this only applies to my neighborhood
Overall: I was just a bit shocked that the bottom of my first copy of this mic showed symptoms of sloppy assembly and painting (which was chipping right out of the box). Also, since the screws to hold this mic together were not fastened in a flush manner (they were poking out of the sticker), I had to peel off the sticker and re-attach the screws. Only then did I discover that the bottom was made out of plastic. Thankfully, the replacement I got for my first PD-70 had no paint chipping issues or crooked fasteners
