  • A superb, compact mic

Having a Yamaha USB receiver as my sound output device, I wanted a USB mic of comparable quality for the sound input device. After evaluating a lot of choices, I settled on the Apogee, where their outstanding website and its thorough info and sound samples made it clear that these people are dead serious about high quality sound. It was also the case that I wanted a mic that looked great on my desktop, and not stick out like a bizarre thumb as some competing mics do. This is one of the best things I've ever bought, delivering high quality sound without taking up a lot of space.

Works GREAT for vocals and, with knowledge of mic positioning, sounds as good as any mic I've ever heard for acoustic guitars. Definitely do not regret buying!!!

    Hi,
    I used the mic mostly with my iPad mini, but i connected it also to mac and Windows machine ( yes it works with windows, but Hi,
    I used the mic mostly with my iPad mini, but i connected it also to mac and Windows machine ( yes it works with windows, but not as usual USB mic but you need to install ASIO4all free asio drivers and off course use recording application which is able to use asio drivers - all DAW windows software and some consumer audio editing soft like Audacity compiled with asio support... it is not perfect but works for me and some other people)
    - Regarding the sound, this is really great.
    - Build quality - all metal housing speaks for itself - actually it is pretty heavy for the size because of it...
    - Regarding the cabling, all cables are short but... if you need longer cable and you are using mac then instead of buying dedicated expensive Apogee 3m cable you can use cheap USB extension cable.
    What's more, if you need a longer connection to your iPad and -! if you already have an apple lightning to USB Camera Adapter !- then u can use a trick and instead of using apogee_to_lightning short cable ( or buying Apogee expensive extension) you can use (Apogee_to_USB)+(USB extension cable)+( Apple lightning to USB Camera Adapter) and it should work as I tried with my iPad mini this connection without the USB extension (Apogee_to_USB)+( Apple lightning to USB Camera Adapter) and it worked fine :) an extension cable of 3 meters should not cause the trouble in my opinion.

    Love the simplicity and ease of use - great product

Sure, it does everything it says on the box, but setup, use, sound quality, build quality and ease of use are all 5 star. The Duet 2 also offers up to 192K sample rates which should future proof your investment for some time. Great product Apogee. Actually, great understates the Duet 2, awesome product Apogee.

    I wanted to love this microphone. My needs are super simple and not even musical. I bought this microphone to record simple audio I wanted to love this microphone. My needs are super simple and not even musical. I bought this microphone to record simple audio with video on Ipad or Iphone. First, this is not quite plug and play, since I had to trouble-shoot several issues .....but once I figured out how to record WITH sound (at first the blue light looked like I was recording sound as well as video, but no sound on replay) I discovered that it is impossible to power ipad or iphone when recording, since this mic plugs into lightning charger space, with no such thing as a splitter involved. Since recording requires plenty of power, I just feel totally frustrated. I know I need to record at least one hour at a time and don't see how to do it. If you see something I don't or know how to work around, you may love this mic, but I wish I'd put out the extra $100 and bought the ONE. Best of luck!
