Price and Availability

The Kikkerland Mini Karaoke Mic typically retails for around $1 -15 on online stores. It’s widely available from various retailers and has several fun color options.

The low price point makes it a great budget-friendly gift for kids or karaoke fans. It can also be purchasеd in multi-packs of different colors to havе microphonеs for thе wholе family or a group.

Unboxing and First Imprеssions

Thе mic comеs packagеd in a colorful cardboard box with photos of pеoplе happily singing karaokе. Insidе is thе microphonе itsеlf along with thе attachеd 3.5mm cablе: no battеriеs or othеr accеssoriеs arе includеd.

My first thought was that this mic is very lightwеight and smallеr than еxpеctеd and еvеn for a mini karaokе mic. It looks likе a rеgular microphonе but in a compact sizе. Thе plastic body doеsn’t fееl supеr sturdy, but that’s undеrstandablе for thе pricе.

Plugging it into my phonе triggеrеd thе littlе LED lights to start flashing diffеrеnt colors, which was excellent. The short cable will limit how far you can move away from the device, but the initial unboxing excited me to test it out.

Build Quality and Design

Considering the super affordable price, you can expect something other than premium build quality from the Kikkerland mic. That said, it feels like it could be more affordable, too.

The microphone is made of lightweight plastic that seems decently durable without significant manufacturing flaws. It resembles a standard handheld dynamic vocal mic, just in an itty-bitty size.

The flashing lights inside the mesh grille add some fun flair. They blink along in time with your singing. There’s also foam inside the grille to help prevent popping sounds.

The attached cable is relatively short at just 47 inches. I prefer more length to allow moving around a room, but you’re limited to staying near your connected d vice. The cable is thin and prone to tangling.

The mic seems decently made for the price but needs to be built like an ank. The flashing lights are a nice touch to enhance the mini karaoke experience. Just expect something other than incredible durability from such an inexpensive product.

Setup and Use

Setting up the Kikkerland Mini Karaoke Mic takes only seconds. Si ply plugs the 3.5mm aux connector into the headset jack on your phone, tablet, laptop, or any device with an audio output. Push the plugin to ensure a snug connection.

That’s all you need to do to start using it! No battery drivers or apps are required. Connect it to a compatible device, and it’s ready for karaoke. The mic will amplify your voice through the connected speaker.

Usage is about as straightforward as it gets. Hold the microphone up to your mouth like any other handheld mic. Speak, sing, or rap into the head grille. Stay within the range allowed by the short cable. The lights flash along for visual effect.

One downside is the mic does not have any built-in volume control. You’ll need to control the volume solely from the connected device. Setting the device volume to 75% provides a good amplification level.

Overall, using the Kikkerland Mini Karaoke Mic could be more complex. Just plug and play. The challenging part is the very short cable restricts where you can use it.

Audio Performance

So, how does the Kikkerland mic sound? Well, keep reasonable expectations for an ultra-budget $10 microphone. The audio quality is decent for informal karaoke but lacks any professional polish.

Starting with the positives, the mic can amplify and project your voice for casual singing or talking. It makes you sound louder and more precise than a built-in microphone.

The maximum volume is reasonably good, though somewhat distorted if the connected device’s volume is peaked. The minor driver can only handle so much height before breaking up.

High frequencies and sibilance come through a bit harsh at times. The overall frequency response could be more balanced and natural. It’s mid-rangy, and metal is sounding.

Handling plosives and pops could be better, too. Breath blasts and saliva sounds come through prominently if you sing very close to the grille.

To summarize the audio performance – it’s decent for a cheap karaoke microphone but lacks the clarity, balance, and detailed sound of more professional mics. I wouldn’t use it for any severe vocal recordings or performances. But for fun karaoke, it fits the bill.

Power and Cable

The Kikkerland Mini Karaoke Mic doesn’t require any batteries or charging. It relies on plugin power from the connected 3.5mm audio source device. This makes operation very convenient without worrying about batteries dying.

The hardwired 4-foot cable does limit your range of movement, though. You must stay within 4 feet of the audio source, which could sometimes be restrictive. A longer cable would offer more flexibility.

Unfortunately, the cable is not removable or replaceable. So, the entire mic would need replacing if anything happens to the cable. The thin cable also tends to tangle and kink up over time.

The mic draws negligible power from the connected source on the plus side. You don’t have to worry about it draining your phone/tablet battery like a powered speaker would. Just be mindful of the short cable length.

Design and Build Quality

As mentioned earlier, the Kikkerland Mini Karaoke Mic has a lightweight plastic body that seems durable without feeling fragile. While the mic won’t withstand abuse, it can handle everyday use if treated reasonably well.

The standard microphone shape fits nicely in hand. The colorful flashing lights add some fun factor to the mic’s appearance. They do require sufficient ambient light to be noticeable, though.

While the build quality isn’t excellent, it’s about what you would expect for a budget $10 karaoke microphone. The plastic body doesn’t exude quality but isn’t prone to breaking easily, either.

I do wish the cable was longer, removable, and slightly thicker. The thin, hardwired cable feels flimsy. Kids and casual singers will enjoy the mini design and lights.

Alternative Options

Here are a few other portable karaoke mics to consider as alternatives in the budget price range:

BONAOK Wireless Bluetooth Karaoke MicrophoneWith Bluetooth for an even better wireless range.
Machine SMM-205Unidirectional mic with longer cord and volume control.
ION Audio TailgaterDynamic mic with 50 ft. cable and rugged build.
GOODaaa Wired Karaoke MicrophoneAuxiliary and Bluetooth connectivity options.
TONOR Karaoke MicrophoneSolid overall quality for low cost.


The bottom line – is the Kikkerland Mini Karaoke Microphone worth picking up? At around $10-15, it makes a fun party or gift mic for casual singing. Just keep expectations realistic for the low price tag.

The good: it’s affordable, portable, has cool lights, and amplifies your voice reasonably well. No batteries or complex setup is needed either.

The not-so-good audio quality is mediocre, the cable is short and thin, and the mic sensitivity could be better. It’s not built for professional use.

If you are looking for an ultra chеap way to add somе musical еntеrtainmеnt to a party or еvеnt thе Kikkеrland Mini Karaokе Mic, you can fit thе bill. Just don’t еxpеct incrеdiblе pеrformancе at in this pricе point. It’s a budget microphone for portability and fun over pro recording quality.
