Did this video help you?

Li Fang Ooi: I have bought this microphone for my voice over recording. The output is supposed to be a crystal clear voice even though you did the recording in the room like what we saw in this video,right? I tried to use it for the recording in my room which is located on 6th floor. The microphone seems to be too sensitive with the noise which is far from my recording location. I can hear the noise of bikes and cars which are moving at the 1st floor. Any suggested solution?

LIPOWSKI DESIGN: Thank you for review, anyway - nice play on drums ;)

MMRProductions: Blue yeti or this?

Krispy MCMuffin: "only 200 dollars for the microphone" *FACEPALM*

DJ Marc Antomattei: Great review and music test but you forgot one key thing. You didn't use a pop filter in any of these test.

As De Espadas: should i buy this or the pg27 USB, I´ve heard they are both really good, but which is better and why?

NinjoshRevolution: HOW MUCH MONEY DOES THIS GUY HAVE!

metalheadneji: You're a great pianist.

Justin Nguyen: Speaking of audio, I think your audio is clipping in the video because I'm getting a bit of distortion once you get louder.

Mohamed GadAllah: Thanks for your review. I need a usb microphone for only vocal voice. I've a quiet place and will use something like a hand made booth. I will only use the microphone for two purposes :- 1) commenting on my educational screen casting video tutorials (like sal khan => khan academy). 2) recording audio books. I am looking for the best microphone for these two purposes and will not use any XLR and will never do any music or singing performance. So I would like to buy something for the long run usage and for only once (I am considering it as an investment). Thanks, Mohamed!

ascalon132: $120?? i can only find the non USB version for 200, USB is at 250, was there some sale i didn't know about??

Jesus Fontánez: recomendation Blue Spark or this one ?

Michael L.: The high pass filter doesn't really decrease noise, it simply rolls off the bottom end of the frequency response. This can help eliminate some rumbles, but background noises, like a crowd, won't really be affected much. It's not a noise gate.

halo99yo: Can you use the pg42-usb while gaming or skyping?

Shade Zinger: thumbs up for the piano part!

Kieran Fresh: freaking awesome piano playing dude!!

TechnoHelp02: @ThatSnazzyiPhoneGuy u made the vid on a friday night

peeweesherman: ...and 123 123 123 123 DA DA DA DA...dol doo dooodooloodoo. (Piano waltz?) Alright I'll see myself out.

Schueddy: Where can I pick it up for 120$? :)

Rafi Hayat: didnt expect u to be a good piano player :o what song did u play? btw i have the m-audio nova mic. what do ya think about about it?

TechnoHelp02: @ThatSnazzyiPhoneGuy nerd sausage good one. ur mother wastelling me all about that joke last night

Frans97: During recording, have you experienced any sort of playback issues with that mic? Like say you recorded it stereo, but coming back through the monitors or headphones it comes out only via mono (one end of the monitor). I've heard of a few USB mics with the same problem, I would just like to know if the Shure PG42 is included among them or not. Thank you! :)

phillipah7: Cool ! You should vlog in your living room, with that big picture window you can't miss.

htcTOUCHguy: nice mic =)

thecodkidd: Dude! You are quite multitalented! lol. are you in high school or college?

عبدالعزيز عبدالله: shure pg42 usb are he want phantom power

Ryan Simonovich: ur good at drums

LMDNYC82: damn, i wish i was born into money lol

joshorrorr: you said we can get it for 120 where can we buy it for that price

TechnoHelp02: @najinajina dont u hav anything better to do on a monday night

Snazzy Labs: @brizern No. It's a zit. Haha.

Ivan Lai: what's the hole dimension of the shock mount? 5/8"? I want to mount it a mic stand which has a 5/8" mount.

qwerty bastard: I personally would choose the Shure PG42. But that is because I have never had a problem with Shure microphones and still have 2 perfectly working Shure microphones that are now over 40 years old. They still record in pefect and HQ sound. Hope this helps :)

EasyDownloadHelp: Where do you connect the USB?

Mike Cuomo: ur sick at drums bro!

crazyguy3730: sweet bass, better drumming, amazing piano! jealousy arising

Snazzy Labs: @TechnoHelp02 Says the kid who is sitting at home on a Friday night....

hpsports11: first view!

Partydontstop: ohj yeah and plussus,,,, Im really considering buying this one now. I dont earn alot of money ( not that anyone has to know ) But If I just save some money I could buy it.. witch would be awesome. My whole neighbourhood is full of people who want to record their stuff.

John Maksym: cool,piano, love playing it when i can

Daniel Ortego: Pretty good video and I was actually more impressed with the vocals than I thought it would be. In fact, I have one on the way to try out myself. By the way, I'm sure you already know that you intended to say 3-feet and not 3-meters.

TheMexicanNerd: Great review man

Orhan Jumerovski: first view first comment do i get a reward.

rubix63: 26th

D40Oz1: to be honest man, dont go with the gtrack... WAAAY to airy...id go with the co1u over the gtrack anyday! ... BUT if you wanna spend the money get the pg42 but the only thing you need to become best friends with is , is a deesser.... this mic will be what you need, specially for doubles

Snazzy Labs: @TechnoHelp02 No, nerd sausage. I filmed the video on Thursday afternoon, edited Friday during school, and uploaded Friday afternoon/evening while I was away hanging out with friends. :p

LIFESound: ur just like me horrible at guitar and good at piano

Daniel Nehlawi: quinn what song was that you played on piano? i would love a full video of it! i think you should haha

Daniel: pwns the samson co3u i picked up not too long ago

Ron Fletcher: This boat is awesome. A feature that us all night catfisherman love about this boat is being able to take a nap in it. You flip the seat back and walls, comfortable. Fish 12 hours minus maybe an hour long nap.
Dustin Beverly: @pechannnnnn Yeah, but the clones in the Haloverse are extremly advanced, really a clone wouldnt be to hard to believe.
Paul Thrussell: I guess Hitch was exaggerating when he would say he was terrified of eggs.
Jon Kucyj: Nice murdered out Xterra. I need to get a Power Tank. I spend around 30-40 min airing back up from 7-40 PSI with my 35" Rockers. I've been rocking the little $70 red compressor from Oreilley's for a couple years along with a 2gal tank. Takes up a lot of space and time. $1 per tire? I probably spend that in fuel as my truck idles filling my tires. I'm really trying to just gather my logic argument for when when the wife bitches at me for buying it LOL. Thanks for the vid.
