MX150 Reviews

“The MX150 is a great improvement in cable and handling noise, and the reversible tie-clip makes it easy to configure for men’s or women’s clothing. I love the [windscreen's] snap lock that keeps it securely in place. It’s visually appealing on television, and less foam means less coloration of the sound.”
