what is special about this mic. i am looking into buying it but not sure what is so nice about it. kind of new to music so.

--Overall high level of performance, especially:
--Very low self noise, so no hiss
--High sensitivity and strong output signal
--Cardioid pickup pattern; many others are hyper-cardioid pattern which has a rear-facing lobe that defeats noise rejection to the rear of the microphone. Cardioid mics reject sounds coming from the rear (which are usually noise). Omni-directional mics don't reject sound from any direction. Figure-8 mics only reject sounds from the sides, not the rear. Only true cardioid mics reject sounds from the rear--a cardinal virtue because the rear of the mic can be pointed toward a noise source (audience, noisy recorder or video camera, etc.) and will substantially reduce the noise level in the output..
--High maximum SPL (sound pressure level) so that output signal remains undistorted even with extremely loud sounds
--High max SPL - low noise = Wide Dynamic Range
--High quality of build
--USB port allows direct plug-in to computer USB port (no preamp or mixer needed) and receives power from the computer's USB port (no Phantom power or batteries required).
--Modest cost compared to mics of similar quality.

I hope this helps.
