I bought the karaoke microphone as a toy for the child. By choosing it, I as always paid attention to the fact that the manufacturer had several models in the line. Then, there's a good chance to get a normal device, not a Chinese homemade. Also before I bought it I saw it offline in a store and was amazed at the size. Therefore, to save the budget and to get an additional discount in the form of points, I ordered it in GearBest.
At the time of purchase, there were only pink ones in stock, but first: the microphone was bought for the girl, and secondly: the color doesn't really matter.
The parcel came to Ukraine with a new mail UTEC express service. The whole process from the moment of sending to delivery by courier takes 13 days. What's interesting is that after crossing the border parcel is sent to the New Mail, and they in fact perform delivery.
Inside the cardboard box with UTEC logos was a package with a parcel, also with the UTEC logo. Apparently the mailing service additionally pack their parcels, protecting it from damage during shipment.
Inside the package is a case with the microphone. I liked the fact that the packaging case is also an organizer for storing the microphone and wires.
A zippered case, walls and a microphone box are made of reinforced polystyrene foam. It holds its shape well, but at the same time it's soft and light enough.
The microphone is rechargeable. 2000mAh capacity. At the moment of unpacking it was already charged. Got through the several karaoke nights, and apparently has no intention to discharge.
Before that, we had a usual radio microphone, but there were always problems with the connection. We had to set it up for a half an hour to use it, and then there were some nuances with the voice delay, the quiet volume, echo and so on.
This microphone is the exact opposite. Connects via Bluetooth as a sound speaker. Therefore, it can be used with both mobile phones and laptops. You can also connect it to PC using a Bluetooth adapter (for example this on https://www.gearbest.com/usb-gadgets/pp_132019.html). Everything is so elementary, it's so cool! By the first connection there weren't any difficulties. The system found a new Bluetooth device and connected it in a couple of seconds.
The Q9 Karaoke Microphone has a small control panel, as well as 2 speakers on the sides, which produce sound.
Also the device has an USB input on the bottom of the microphone to play music in mp3 format. Media buttons are used to switch tracks from USB. There is no slot in the microphone to play from the SD-card.
But, the easiest way is to turn on a YouTube karaoke channel (there are many of them), find favorite songs and play them. You get unlimited song library, with karaoke lyrics.
In set there is also a short user manual which demonstrates the main principles of work with the karaoke microphone.
A cord to connect the microphone directly to the device. By this connection, we got an usual passive microphone without karaoke functions.
A charging cord.
The Q9 microphone is convenient to hold. Its weigh is 400g and it's well centered, so it doesn't twist the hand and located conveniently.
I was very satisfied with the Q9 karaoke microphone. If you want to sing karaoke, it takes just seconds to get ready. You turn the microphone on, the laptop automatically mark that the device as activated one and connects. You have to only choose a favorite song, for example, on YouTube, and that's all, you can sing. There is no need to configure the microphone each time or mess with the connection. You can also practice using an usual song, or videos and movies, playing them on a computer or a phone.
I'm happy with the device and recommend it for purchase.
