2-in-1 Value: Easy USB Recording or Traditional XLR!How handy is this? The LSM (aka Little Square Mic) makes it easy to record to your computer. There's no need for a tangle of cables or a bunch of outboard gear. Just plug the LSM right into your Mac or PC via USB, and you're ready to start recording. And since the LSM features a large-diaphragm condenser capsule, you can still get "big studio" sound, while saving time in the process.
But what makes the Studio Projects LSM extra special, though, is that it features a mini-XLR output connector in addition to its mini-USB output. That way, you can use your LSM as a regular recording microphone by plugging it straight into your favorite audio interface or gear (with a special cable). That gives you the best of the digital and analog worlds!
If you've been thinking about getting a USB microphone, but you don't want to trap yourself into USB-only recording, the Studio Projects LSM is the perfect pick! It's available in a variety of colors, so you can record with style.

Not a good mic
by KSM from NY, NYI gave this a two, mainly because of appearance, size, and the fact it has an XLR. If you do live/interweb audio things, this is perfect, but for recording, it's awful. The frequency response given in... read more [+] the little brochure shows 2 response (w/ no frequencies listed.... big help). I assumed the top was on axis and the bottom was off. But from what I could hear, the bottom on is on axis. There is about a 10db spike in the 5k-5.5kHz range. I sang and thought my ears were going to bleed from sibilance. I thought it may be the conversion, but after trying the xlr, no, it's the mic. The same day I bought it, I returned it, and got a Yeti. Not professional studio quality, but infinitely better and less brittle than this thing. I really wanted to like this mic, but I just don't

Very disappointing....I can't believe this is the same company that makes the C1, a FANTASTIC mic for the price. They should just up the price $40 and throw a USB connection in that.
