Pros

Favorable reviews point to the MIC2200's 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.

Cons

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.
