The reviews of the Ultragain Pro MIC2200 is generally favorable, with many pointing to its value for money as its main selling point. Sound quality and versatility via its EQ and high-pass filter were also appreciated by many users, which include vocalists, guitarists, bassists and other musicians.
One user had to have his unit repaired after around a year and a half, but the power supply was easily repaired. Others were not too impressed with the implementation of the built-in EQ, but found the unit to still be good, considering its price.
