Customer Reviews

Great audio quality and I wish I bought sooner. Excellent quality and easy to install. I would highly recommend this microphone to improve audio quality. Wife always complained that I was difficult to hear when driving. Now I can use my hands-free head unit without her complaining. Only dislike is the mounting clip because I would like to flush mount with 3m adhesive. 4Massive upgrade over the NX404 internal Mic This microphone is a massive improvement over the built in one on our nx404. I was lucky enough to be able to mount it on the rear view mirror stalk on our 2008 Prius and route the cable through the headliner and A pillar trim. The "instructions" suggest mounting this thing on the driver's sun visor but that seems really inconvenient if you ever intend to actually use the sun visor. Vehicles with a traditional dash cluster could probably mount it there. If you are even a little handy, you could remove the top portion with the swivel mount for the mic and mount it on the dash somewhere. The cable for the mic is very long and thin enough to route just about anywhere.The sound from the mic is still a little tiny but clear and loud enough. It's not much worse than the factory mic we had with Sync on a prior Ford we owned. 4No improvement for my Kenwood Stereo I can't really give this mic a bad review since I didn't use it for one of the listed compatible units, but I wanted to alert any other Kenwood DDX-_18 series owners looking for a better mic to pass on this one. I have a Kenwood DDX-418 car receiver with Bluetooth that came supplied with a wired mic that makes my voice sounds thin, "reedy," and distant. I purchased and tested the Clarion RCB199, the Pioneer CD-VM1, and the Olympus ME-52W hoping one of them might provide better sound, but unfortunately, the sound from each was only marginally better, if at all. I tested them by leaving messages on my home answering machine, comparing them with both the Kenwood mic and my cell phone's mic. I tried them out at different distances from my mouth and at both the visor and steering wheel positions, but all of them still had that same thin, "reedy" sound. Some may have been slightly louder than the Kenwood, but not enough to make it worth the purchase. I'm starting to suspect that the problem lies in the receiver's signal processing rather than any fault in the mics.FYI, for those in the same boat I'm in, though I can't say for sure, the Sony XAMC10 mic appears to be identical to the Pioneer CD-VM1, but with a 3.5 mm plug istead of the 2.5 mm on the Pioneer, a slighly different mounting bracket, and a higher price tag. 3Excellent product The call clarity is exceptional, installation was a snap. I highly recommend this product to anyone who owns a clarion head unit. 5item worked as described quick hassle free purchase 5Great accessory mic Works great with the Clarion NZ 503 radio. Much clearer than the built in mic. Small and clips out of the way 5Wonderful microphone for noisy vehicles!! This microphone works great! I drive a truck for a living and have been using the Blue Parrot for years. I bought a Clarion bluetooth head unit for my truck and the built in microphone was letting in too much noise, so I purchased this and installed on my visor and now everybody can hear me perfectly in my noisy truck. 5Works Great! I am using this with my sony mex-bt3800u head unit and it makes a huge difference in the audio quality over the built in mic. I assume the noise canceling is what really makes the difference. 5Works Great with CZ302 model. Works Great with Clarion CZ302 model. The internal mic for CZ302 sounded like I was in a wind tunnel, plus I was SCREAMing at the unit, and this was with MIC BOOST at 5 (MAXED).I use this external mic and I have MIC BOOST at -3, its actually kind of loud, but turned it down. WORKS PERFECT!2001 Honda Civic LX, if that matters. 5Five Stars Does as it should. 5
