Not your end all be all set up.

Post year updates: the price for the gold, this reviewed unit has gone up to about 80s, would suggest looking at the BM-800 Black, Silver, or Aurora Red modals. Those are advertised as the same mic as this one, so the review should apply to those three modals as well. That being said having this for about a year, the boom arm is feeling floppy. It still stays in place, just seems to bend a little lower and twist a bit easier now. But for what I paid for, sort of expected, some new coils is all I need.
Review: So for about 50 CAD you get a mic, a stock mount, a boom arm, foam filter, pop filter, and two not so useful items. A XLR male to 3.5mm Male cord and a USB sound card.
Right away, you are going to want to get an audio interface, the sound card is total trash. It has one use, if you are using it on a PS4 or a PC with out a proper mic in jack. However, the sound card I got was nothing but audio feedback, awful trash, you can buy yourself a cheep headphone that would work better then that thing; however, no good audio interface will take a 3.5mm prong, so you will need to get an XLR male to female or 1/4th male depending on your interface.
Now that set up is out of the way, what do you expect to have? You have a pop filter you can use on any mic, that is 5~10 dollars, a foam filter, that can also cost about 5~10 dollars, a boom-arm that costs 10~20 dollars, and a shock mount, that can be used on other mics if the size is right, also ranging between 10~20 dollars, and a microphone. The microphone is not great, it is good, and it works well. Though they say the microphone has a two-layer metal head, it is very thin, but foam filter and pop-filter make up for that.
The quality is serviceable; nothing you'd want to use for professional recordings, but then again if you are professional, why are you looking at a low cost microphone? That is what this is low cost. It works great for the price you are putting into it. If you just want a working XLR microphone and a set up that will work as a stop gap for when you have money in a few years, this is perfect. It is quick easy, and gets you everything you need to start out with.
