Yes, but you're going to want to replace it with something better.  I highly recommend the Heil PR781.    Not only is it a great performing mic, the SSDR software has several settings made especially for it.

I have had several unsolicited complements on  my audio from the included mic and there are also included settings for that one too.

Yeah, it's an okay mic.  I am much more comfortable with a desk/boom mic where I can use a foot switch or VOX.

I keep my hand mic for testing when I have audio issues so that I can eliminate cable, adaptors, etc.

Steve, Fully agree with the convenience issue. I will definitely get a headset and foot switch just for the convenience if I start using phone much. Typing with two hands is slow enough, hi hi.

Sorry to say my 6300 with the PR781 didn't work out. Couldn't get the bass out. Went to RE27 and have better audio reports. Wish my 781 would have worked out.

The hand mike had a worse report BY FAR than a $3 Skype mike

I have an Electrovoice RE320, obtained from Broadcast Sales Worldwide. They periodically have package deals with the mic, spit guard, XLR cord, shock mount with boom adapter. Sounds fab on the 6000 series without need of any external processor gear. If you use an XLR microphone with the 6300, then you will need the Heil XLR to Foster adapter cord. The correct one has an orange shroud over the XLR. Don't remember the model number off hand.

What would be a good hand microphone for the Maestro?
