Worked great with my Rode Procaster & Focusrite Scarlet Solo 3rd Gen combo!
Make sure you have two XLR cables as you'll need one to go from your microphone to the cloud lifter and then another one from the cloud lifter to the audio device! Used this to boost the audio for my Rode Procaster when feeding it into the Focusrite Scarlet Solo 3rd Gen, works really well, absolutely recommend! Great built quality and no setup required beyond plugging it in.
Makes the Shure SM7B shine
I have a Shure SM7B which requires a lot of gain and my Focusrite just didn't have enough to drive it well enough without introducing too much noise. The Cloudlifter is fairly pricey for what it is, but once you hold it in your hand you realise what a quality peice of kit it is. It's larger than I imagined it would be and has a nice weight to it - I feel as though it would be quiite durable if you were to take it on the road with you. It has boosted my Shure SM7B perfectly, nice clean gain and really easy to set up - just plug in with XLR cables and turn on the phantom power from your audio interface and you're done. Money well spent.
FINALLY, I can sound LOUD!
I've used both a Blue spark mic and a Shure SM7B and both require post production edits to raise the volume. Turning up the gain on my pre-amp simply wouldn't cut it since it introduced the inevitable hiss. I noticed that many people recommended the Cloudlifter and a 'must-have' if you own an SM7B. Since I just bought an SM7B and was witnessing the same need to pump up the volume, I took the plunge. No power is necessary which is a bonus, since it draws the phantom power from the pre-amp and essentially powers itself (and obviously the mic). There's nothing to shout about other than the unit does EXACTLY what it reports to do. It raises the volume of the mic without any unwanted noise. The phantom power is not eradicated using a dynamic mic, it's EMPLOYED - as it should be! The result is that I'm managed to be able to reduce my gain by a quarter on the dial...and no post-production volume changes are necessary! Perfect! This takes away from my workload since I churn out instructional videos by the dozen and something forget that I need to pump up the volume. The unit is solid metal and built like a tank. I imagine this to be the ideal solution fr those people who might use this in the road. though mine is 'on display' lying on its side with the logo showing, the unit has large rubber feet which allows it to sit securely on a desk. The XLR's snap in nicely and firmly. There's shady copies of the cloudlifter on the market for a fraction of the price, but people have stripped them down to see that the 'meat' inside is far inferior in contrast. The copies produce a loud of unwanted noise too. I'm with those people who recommend the cloudlifter for the SM7B, since it works a charm. I see no reason why it wouldn't work great for other dynamic mics too. If you're looking for that boost in volume, just buy one.

solves my problem
I have to speak weekly to oap's as at present I have a voice problem it saves me from talking at a louder volume to make them hear the speaker does all that for me. Excellent.
This is a great little speaker. The volume is enough for me as a children’s entertainer to use in a room full of children. The mic is fairly good quality, and the speaker comes with a few different EQ settings to choose from. I have found the country setting to be the clearest for speech. The battery life is fantastic, I’ve used it for several hours so far without having to charge it. It’s also very light and portable, a great size. The only downside is that the mic itself is not wireless. Overall a great product, worth the money.
Charging the Unit
My query refers to charging the unit. Is it supplied a) fully charged or b) partially charged or c) not charged at all. Instructions are a bit vague being in pigeon english. When connected to the mains via the charging cable does the battery indicator change to two icons and if so how long does it take from ' as supplied ' charge level and should the unit be switched on or off when charging. Many thanks WILL SOMEONE PLEASE ANSWER THIS QUERY. THIS IS THE THIRD SUBMITTAL

Very effective voice amp
It's light; it's simple to use, it is clear in sound, and the radio connection is pretty well bomb proof. I've used it to transmit my voice into other rooms and absolutely seamless. Great bit of kit.
Implanted into 3M respirator for talking during lab work
Great unit for the money. I use this unit to be able to communicate with colleagues while wearing a respirator, during biological laboratory work (relevant during COVID times). I wish respirator manufacturers would provide a port to insert microphones like this seamlessly. The seal is not full due to the microphone lead, but it's better than a surgical mask. Having a proper port would ensure full seal. The wired microphone works better than the wireless one, in my hands. there is a slight 5 sec delay when you first turn the unit on during which the microphone connects. So, if I do not want to leave it amplifying my sound all the time, I turn the knob down to minimum volume, w/o switching it off. Then, if you need to talk briefly, you bring the knob back and there is no 5 sec delay. The battery lasts for one full day of work (10 hrs), make sure to recharge every night. The belt clip is totally useless, just ignore it and strap the belt around your waist if you want to wear it fanny-pack style, facing with the speaker forward
Wonderful teaching aid!
Wonderful, brilliant, very effective and essential supply teaching aid to lessen voicebox strain! It is especially necessary for supply teaching, as a class of 30 children make a huge racket even when just talking at a normal level to discuss a group task, whilst behaving themselves. Those of us who are fully and highly qualified and experienced teachers therefore regularly have to raise out voices to be heard at the times at which students are engaged in group or pair work peer tasks, because 30 voices create a high volume of sound even when speaking quite quietly. You can't expect children to whisper or sit in silence all day, so you regularly have to raise your voice when teaching, and that goes double when you're teaching supply. This microphone does not ampilfy your voice as much as one used by someone on stage would, but is sufficient to enable you to be heard clearly and assertively, without being so loud that it unsettles anyone. It is also a great teaching aid to be used to encourage student participation, by allowing students to borrow the headset mike if they come up to do a class presentation or reading of the set text book to the rest of the class. Students usually love this and it is a good way of bringing a covered lesson alive, to ensure that you are not just sitting in the corner and setting work, (as is expected of supply) but actually creatively delivering an interactive lesson in which you address each section of set work engagingly. It obviously also helps to be heard for disciplining without shouting, when necessary. Fantastic product. It would be even better if a separate mike was available to go with this though, as the headset does rather connote office work, even when used creatively.
