Very good for remote guest interview
Casey H., 06.05.2020
This microphone was ordered for a podcast guest living in the UK. It arrived in short time and was very easy to help set it up remotely on the guest's PC laptop. It "just worked" without having to take steps to install a driver. The voice sound was very good in an untreated space, and relatively low noise for a dynamic microphone. I highly recommend this mic for anyone who has similar needs.

Mic is ok, but cable not
CarelB, 02.02.2021
I think this mic is made in the same factory as the well known Audio Technical AT2100. In the t.bone version a nice usb for a great price. I purchased this mic for recording on my iPhone. You need the Apple (powered) camera adapter for that. The mic with the cable works fine on a Windows pc. Perhaps also on a Mac. But not with the Apple camera adapter on the IPhone. I bought another (better) usb cable and that one worked fine. I discovered this problem after several hours trying. Good to know for others who want to use it with an iOS device with lightning port.

Excellent for the price
damondimento78, 15.07.2020
Remember the price.

It seems to be pitched as a first podcast microphone. It's a perfect "out of the box" solution for connecting to your laptop and starting out with podcasting for a small investment.

It comes with a free usb cable and a basic stand. You'll need to add a foam windshield or popshield

Build: great
Sound: good to very good. Some hiss at high gain, a little susceptible to plosives.


Does a good job in an untreated space. During Covid I am working from home and don't have the time/space for even a makeshift audio space. I use this in my temporary office/bedroom and it works great for basic miking. I deliver a lot of online training as part of my job and it helps to cut out unwanted household sounds

Vielseitig verwendbar und günstig
Frank402, 22.12.2020
Wer sich mit dem Gedanken trägt, eine USB Soundinterface nebst Mikro anzuschaffen, der sollte sich dieses USB Mikro von T.bone genauer ansehen. Es lässt sich als gewöhnliches Mikro mit XlR Kabel benutzen, dann sind 48 V Phantomspeisung willkommen. Oder man nutzt es mit einem USB Kabel direkt am Computer oder Ipad oder Iphone ( mit dem leider sehr teuren Apple USB Adapter). Der Clou: Das Mikro hat selbst noch einen Kopfhörerausgang eingebaut! Dadurch wird quasi das USB Soundinterface komplett ersetzt, zumindest, wenn man mit 1 Mikro auskommt. Der Sound geht in Ordnung, das Rauschen hält sich in Grenzen, für einfache Zwecke durchaus okay. Für Videokonferenzen allemal besser als die eingebauten Mikros in den Laptops.
