This is a seriously great mic for the price. The sound it gets rivals decent Sennheiser mics. One of the best features of the plus version is that it has a USB chargeable lithium battery that lasts 22 hours. 22 hours!! That was a huge bonus and saved battery life on my recorder with not having to use Phantom power. My first full use of it was on a shoot out in the CA desert, far from any power sources or stores to buy more batteries for my gear. 3 days of shooting and not once did I have to recharge the thing.
The sound quality is pretty damn good. As I said - rivaling Sennheiser's base models.
