- Great build quality.
- Beautiful design and aesthetics.
- Fully metal construction including metal mounting threads.
- Good audio quality is obtainable in certain use cases.
- Very distorted despite gain/volume settings when at 10cm or closer.
- In-built pop filter isn’t very good, buy an external pop filter.
KitGuru says: The build quality, aesthetics and construction of the AM330 are brilliant, it’s a very aesthetically pleasing microphone when used on video and it can sound good but, sadly, the distortion when used close up and the ineffective built-in pop filter makes us recommend the RODE Podmic at the same price point over this one.
