DigitalLife ME1 USB Boundary Microphone Unboxing and Review

The Digitallife ME1 is a USB-C boundary microphone that’s perfect for vloggers and podcasters looking to enhance the audio quality of their interviews and presentations. It’s one of the few under $50 microphones to feature all metal construction. This thing is so sold, you can use it as a weapon!

The microphone features an omnidirectional polar pattern that uniformly picks up sound 360 degrees around the microphone. You can sit comfortably at your desk, look around if you like, and not focus on speaking directly into the microphone. Set it in the center of a conference table, and all participants seated around it will be clearly heard.

ME1 has an internal A/D converter so no additional audio gear, like an A/D interface, is necessary to use the mic. It boasts 16-bit / 48 kHz digital resolution for accurate, CD-quality sound. A red LED indicator lets you know that the microphone is muted so you can have a side conversation or clear your throat without interrupting a conference or meeting.

This boundary mic’s durable metal construction is made for repeated use in demanding conference room and office environments. It’s also solid enough to take with you when you’re on the go, and it will withstand bumps when you pack it into your computer case. Available direct from DigitalLife for under $50.
