Antlion Audio ModMic 5.0 Review: A comparative review between the ModMic 5.0 and ModMic 4.0

Pros: Combination of both ModMic 4.0 omni- and uni-directional mics, modular design, accessories
Cons: Expensive, still needs a (cheap) soundcard to work without static noise, cable weight, no improvements over MocMic 4.0 recordings

Review date: February 2017
Review price: £60
Overall score: 8/10

First of all I would like to thank Antlion for reaching out and sending me the ModMic 5.0. After having reviewed both the Uni-Directional ModMic 4.0 and the Omni-directional ModMic 4.0 (which I used on a daily basis), I was intrigued to see further developments from Antlion.

The new ModMic 5.0 can be found from AmazonUK for £60 and AmazonUSA for $70, which given the ModMic 4.0 prices currently stand around £35-45, it’s a significant price increase. You can find more information about the ModMic 5.0 on Antlion’s website.

Here’s my video demonstrating the recording of the ModMic 5.0 and a comparison to the ModMic 4.0:

Antlion ModMic 4.0 Omni - Headphones

First of all I would like to thank Antlion for sending me the Omni-Directional mic for review, after having reviewed the Uni-Directional ModMic 4.0, I was really intrigued to know the differences both in terms of the updated overall package and what the Omni-Directional ModMic 4.0 could offer. The Omni-Directional ModMic can be found for £46 on AmazonUK and $55 on AmazonUSA. I opted to receive the version that had the mute switch.

Furthermore, Antlion also sent me their USB soundcard for review, which I’ll also briefly mention in this review! It can be picked up for $10 on their site.

In order to give you a live-recording of the two ModMics, I suggest watching my video:
