With Covid19, I find myself being on Virtual Conference Calls most of the day so I wanted to get a microphone that I could use that was far better than the ones built into my MAC Book. I did some recordings using this mic and the one built into my Mac. The sound difference is night and day. This mic is directional and seems to block out outside noises and just picks up my voice. I also compared this to my Logitech WebCam with built in Mic and this also blows that one away. Was truly plug and play for my MAC, just plug into your USB port and select USB Codec in System Preferences for the Microphone setting. Would highly recommend.
