Fifine AM8 mic review


FIFINE is known for their quality affordable microphones and now they are also starting to release mixers, headphones, and speakers. FIFINE is one of the top brands for affordable audio devices with premium feel and quality.


FIFINE AM8 Features

Design


This microphone from FIFINE looks and feels well-built despite being a budget option. The mic has a Gain knob, an Output volume knob, and two touch-sensitive buttons for muting and changing RGB colors. It has a RGB bar with 8 RGB static lights, a breathing mode and a flowing mode. The microphone itself is available in black, white and pink color.


The positioning of buttons are knobs are not comfortable to use especially the mute button. We found ourselves constantly muting the microphone accidentally while moving and holding it due to the mute button's positioning.


Connectivity


FIFINE AM8 has both USB-C and XLR connectivity options. You can also use it with mobile devices by using the USB-C port. It also has a 3.5mm connection for the headphones to monitor your audio.


As the AM8 microphones comes with both USB and XLR connectivity, beginners can use a USB-C connection and can easily upgrade to better audio quality without upgrading the microphone by using an XLR connection with a mixer.

Audio Quality


The Fifine AM 8 is a Dynamic microphone with a Cardioid polar pattern (unidirectional) which makes it great for Streaming and Podcasting. It comes with a windshield on mic for better audio against plosives.

The overall sound quality is great with rich-sounding vocals but we felt that the Fifine AM8 has low maximum gain and needs to be used very close.
