Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, the cleverly designed device has a sturdy clip which can be attached to the top of your laptop or twisted around to act as a desktop stand. The slider on the side allows you to record uni-directionally and omni-directionally making it great for recording podcasts or GCSE speaking assessments with Audacity and the headphone socket lets you monitor your audio too. The light indicator on the front of the device goes green to show it is connected and flashes red if you speak too loudly.
Clipping the mike under my chin seemed to produce the best results although I had to be careful not to move the USB or headphone leads while speaking as this picked up unwanted handling noise on the recording. A bit of practice ironed out this shortcoming though and allowed me to create a consistently good sound which was very pleasing.
Here is a demo recording I made today using Audacity to show you what the Go Mic can do.
In short, I think the Go Mic at around £33 is definitely a sound investment for the future and a useful addition to any serious moblogger's kit.
