Product Experience I've tried it Closest Store Brampton Ontario
I got this mic because of the positive reviews. However, all my recordings came out extremely quiet and I am not a quiet singer.

I purchased this FET in March '09, it is now September '12. Lemme tell you folks: It has endured the test of time boy!. 2 rap mixtapes. 10 kid's songs. Home made percussion kit recordings, and countless voise overs and snippets. When I purchased it, I was convinced by its' USB connectivity but a little unsure about USB noise. Well, very faint but...it is there, not gonna lie. But it is nothing that a little filtering can't fix. Just make sure to place away from other electrical sources to avoid the buzz. Then DO use a precision notch EQ on the low-mid to high-mid and maybe even a very high freq low pass as needed for vocals. Not sure about using this to record instruments as I have never tried it besides those home made percs mentioned. But for real, for the Money, it is a killer deal. One thing I did notice was everyone loves the internal Blue LED light. Kids go nuts for it and adults are like "damn... high tech stuff!" lol... get this mic if you wanna bypass the soundcard like I did. 2 birds with one stone!

When I first walked into the store, I was mainly looking for just a normal condenser mic, but then I saw the apex440. It's just sooooo amazing! I really love this microphone. I use it for recording my music, and what I really like about it is that it really captures the bass of your voice.

I have had it about a year (boy, the price has dropped!) - I generally love it, there is only one problem: When using Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Server 2008 R2 in 64-bit/x64 the APEX utility does not install/function (and I have tried many, many compatability "tricks"). So - the microphone does function, Windows does automatically install a driver, but the gain is very low - you have to speak within 10-15 centimeters away or your listeners cannot hear you. (Which is not "horrible" when broadcasting from home with 3 "barky" dogs and 2 kids ;-) )

I rented this mic, and only a few days later I had to buy it. Its clarity is amazing, as well is its build quality. I can't get over how nice of a mic this is for 99$
