Digital Camera World Verdict

This budget USB mic is a strong contender for a place on your desktop thanks to a solid metal build, multiple polar patterns and the ability to record high-quality audio. Foam padding on the base and arms helps dampen noise-inducing vibrations from other devices on your desktop. It will certainly elevate the production values of your sound recordings to a higher level.

Why you can trust Digital Camera World Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out how we test.

The SmallRig Forevala U60 is designed for desktop audio recording. Your smartphone, laptop or PC are capable of recording audio though their built-in mics but the sound will be relatively poor compared to audio captured from a dedicated USB capsule mic.
