Karaoke is a pastime which is often confined to public venues. This is unfortunate, especially for those of us who love karaoke and don't want to leave the comfort of our homes to enjoy it. Thankfully, karaoke machines have evolved over the course of the past few decades and have become affordable enough to purchase for home.
The fact of the matter is that you don't even need a karaoke machine anymore to enjoy some karaoke. As long as you have a speaker and a microphone, you can do karaoke at home anytime. Simply connect your microphone to your amplifier or speaker and then browse Youtube.
There are countless lyric videos and karaoke tracks available on Youtube for almost any song you can imagine. Any songs which you cannot find for free can be purchased online from karaoke retailers. All you need in order to enjoy some karaoke at home is a screen in addition to your speakers and microphone.
This makes it so that karaoke can be enjoyed at home and the quality is limited only by your budget for speakers and microphones. With the lessening price on both of those devices also taken into account, you will find that home karaoke is not only feasible, but it is also highly enjoyable.
While it is certainly more affordable to opt for this method of karaoke, there are certain products you can purchase to make it more convenient. The Mifanstech Q9, the mic that we will be reviewing today is certainly one of these products. Before we get into our review, we will go over some of the characteristics which go into a great karaoke microphone.
One of the most important considerations to make when looking for the best karaoke microphone is how clear the vocals sound. A clear sounding microphone is necessary for a wide variety of activities and not only karaoke. This includes song demo recordings, podcasts and a whole host of others.
While a karaoke microphone does not have to be crystal clear, it is always nice to be able to hear yourself better as you sing along. Your friends will surely appreciate being able to hear themselves better when they come by for karaoke parties as well, as a clear microphone improves the listening experience, especially for good singers.
Another thing to consider is whether or not your karaoke mic comes included with speakers. Some models of karaoke microphone will come included with built in speakers, either attached to the microphone or the microphone stand itself.
Included speakers make it more convenient for those of us who do not have an extra set of speakers at home or simply have speakers that are too bulky for convenient transportation. Attached speakers have the greatest degree of mobility as they tend to be small but powerful so that you can enjoy your karaoke almost anywhere, regardless of surroundings.
About The Product

- Works through a wireless Bluetooth connection
- Built in speakers allow for greater portability and convenience
- Treble, bass and echo may all be adjusted using controls on the microphone
- Micro USB port allows for the charging of the removable battery
- 3.5mm jack allows connection to non-Bluetooth compatible devices

Its intended use should be evident by the design of the small side speakers, overall portability of the mic and a host of additional features (including Bluetooth connectivity) that facilitate use in many other places.
We were surprised by this product, to say the least. We must admit that we did not have very high expectations for the speakers, having seen their relatively small size. We are proud to admit that we were wrong, however. The included speakers are very powerful for their size, with a surprising amount of bass.
The ability to adjust the echo, treble, and bass is something that we are not accustomed to seeing on such small karaoke microphones. It is evident that a good deal of thought went into the design of this product and how the manufacturers would fit so many extras into such a small and impressive package.
In case you are trying to connect to a device which does not feature Bluetooth compatibility, you may always make use of the included 3.5mm jack. The combination of these two connection systems allows you to use almost any electronic device manufactured in the past decade to do karaoke.
