"Intermittent" means occurring at regular intervals (see last review), which is hardly a desirable attribute for a microphone. I think he/she meant to say something like "variable" or "switchable".

Absolutely love it! Everything sounds good through this mic - vocals, drums guitar you name it. I highly recommend this as a good all-round microphone, which hasn't let me down on any of my projects.

Gotta say, I own a 214, a 414BXLII and now this the 414XLS - 9 polar pattern mic. This is generally my go to mic now. I love the intermittent polar patterns particularly 2&3 together, really makes a vocal sound smooth. I just find this mic gives a very good representation of the singer with very little colour and very flat signal. Great for Pop Rock, R&B vocals. Purchase this mic and you will not be disappointed. It's also worth mentioning that this mic sounds best with a mogami neglex cable. I have tried several cables, the Monster P500 the Mogami stage gold's and a custom cable that was built from Bosch. Pick one up, enjoy and start recording today!
