Why buy the MXL 770?

The MXL 770 is a workhorse mic that packs a serious performance punch relative to its entry-level price point, but it won’t turn heads with swagger and style. If you’re in need of a reliable mic that doesn’t cost a fortune, it should be right up your alley. Here are our top three reasons to buy:
  • Price to performance ratio — The MXL 770 fits into that category of mic that surprises new owners with how capable it is despite its entry-level price.
  • Great sound for deep-voiced hosts — Deep-voiced podcast hosts we’ve spoken to laud the MXL 770 for its warm and rich tone. Comparing it with other mics they’ve used in the past, which required them to do plenty of equalization, the MXL 770 captures a wonderful sound straight out of the box.
  • Background noise — While there are varying opinions on this, a lot of hosts who use the MXL 770 commend it on how well it ignores stray background noise and reverb. If you’re a host who doesn’t have a proper studio setup, this might just be the mic you need to ensure a crisp, clean sound.

I’ve been using the MXL 770 for a little over a year now. It is a quality, low cost condenser mic that fits my needs as a podcaster and amateur voice artist. When I use the MXL, it gives me exactly what I’m trying to record. I have a very bass-heavy voice, and the MXL 770 makes it sound great! I recommend for any podcaster looking to take their audio to the next level. Also, this particular mic comes with a nice kit of accessories, giving you a little bit more value for your money!
