1. Connecting with a desktop computer, it can be used separately; But if with a laptop computer, please connect to an electrical outlet or use a 48V phantom power supply to make the sound much clearer and higher. (InnoGear 48V Microphone phantom power supply, mic stand, and pop filter are sold separately, NOT included.)
2. CHECK your computer's sound card before using the microphone. (Generally, the voltage of old type computer's sound card is 3V, new type computer 5V.) The 3V sound card will make the microphone's sound LOWER, while the 5V sound card will make the sound better.
