    Despite its flaws, Nessie is a microphone worth considering if you are budget conscious or don't like mucking around with audio settings.

    Pros

    • Pre-processing makes it easier to record decent quality spoken word audio
    • Sports a stylish look

    Cons

    • Audio is captured too quietly, with a lack of onboard gain controls
    • Built-in pop filter really doesn't work.
