To start with, I would like to share my first impression of the packaging here. Well to me, the box is really in a bad shape. For the packaging itself, I would surely give 2 stars only. There is quite a number of damages which can be seen clearly. I really hope they improve the packaging of this microphone.
Let’s start with the design. Looking at the design of the Fifine A8 mic, it looks pretty much simple and nice. I like the matte black colour finish which gives the professional look to it. Then, on the top side of the mic, there is a mic mute button, where you can give pressure to it and it mutes. Once it turns to red colour it means your mic is muted. Next, behind the mic, there is this touch-sensitive RGB colour-changing button. By just tapping the button, it can change the colours of the RGB light. Right below the RGB button, there is the mic gain controller, where you can control the mic gain. And finally bottom side of the mic, there is the USB-C port and a headphone jack.
For the review wise, I would like to comment on a few things about the build quality of this mic. Almost 90% of this mic is made of plastic. So, when I say plastic, I am sure you might be thinking the quality is cheap right? But, that’s not true guys. Even though it has a plastic build quality, but the base stand is quite solid. It has the weight to hold the mic stable.No matter what angle I move the mic, it can stand firmly. And also, I like the build quality of the pop filter, with the Fifine, branding on it. It even has shock absorption attached to it and no matter how much I shake the mic, it holds the mic steadily.
However, I would say the RGB colour-changing button, is too sensitive. So, if I accidentally tap on the button then the colour changes. So my advice would be not to touch the mic itself while using it. One thing I like about the mute button is, with the colour representation, it is quite easy for me to notice whether my mic is muted or not.
Well, the Ampligame A8 RGB mic uses a cardioid pattern. This means the sound is clearer when you speak directly in front of the mic. So if I try to speak from various directions then u can hear that my voice feels like somewhere far away. Unless you have the omnidirectional mic then you can speak from various angles and your voice will sound the same.
Usability-wise, I will say the Fifine A8 RGB mic, is too simple to use. Since it has a type c cable, all I need to do is plug in and start recording my voice. With the stable stand, I feel it’s really easy to record my voice. But, it would have been better if they provide the mechanical arm together with the mic.
My final verdict of the Fifine ampligame A8 RGB mic would be, if you are planning to record your voice mostly, then this is the go-to mic for you. Seriously you can get this mic for an affordable price with professional sounding. This is a product which is worth purchasing.
