They works wonder and it is better than my previous external mic I have from Zalman. Make sure you put Beam-forming Focus at 50-60 degree. Mic is still able to capture my voice even one arm away.
As he said, better value for dollar.
Thanks guys! I'm going to to with the ZX
Only $150 sound card I know of that has a headphone amp, surround sound, and a control module.
Gonna run to my best buy store and see if they have them (online on best buy marketplace but don't know about in store) because I have a best buy gift card. If not, I guess I'll get it from somewhere like newegg because of free shipping and no tax. Currently I don't think it's cheaper than $150 anywhere right now, which is a shame since they were on a deal not too long ago.
edit: Naturally, my best buy has nothing in the computer hardware dept. They were charging $150 for a R3con 3d though, lovely. Lol I'll just grab it off newegg.Edited by apav - 2/3/13 at 11:58am
