A mobile studio for vocal recordings

The SC 425 USB is a complete and easy-to-use package aimed at budding audio engineers, home-studio enthusiasts, and podcasters alike. A simple USB connection and your recording voice are all you will require to get started! It also features a useful headphone output for zero-latency monitoring. The SC 425 has an even more affordable little brother, the SC 420 USB. Unlike the latter, however, the 425 is fitted with two dedicated controls for gain and output volume as well as a red LED to indicate its operating status. A foam pop filter is also included to guard against plosives, as are a suspended shock mount (to minimise vibrations and handling noises) and a round table stand. The whole package is very attractively priced, providing a professional-grade audio recording solution for the many.

Proximity effect for an enhanced sound

Large-diaphragm microphones such as the SC 425 USB are valued for their high sensitivity and accurate rendition. In addition, their proximity effect is more pronounced than that of small-capsule mics – in other words, the closer you are to the microphone when speaking or singing, the warmer your voice will become. The same effect will apply to other sound sources such as guitars and pianos. Large-diaphragm microphones are extremely versatile, and every studio should have at least one. Podcasters will also appreciate the richness and “radiophonic” quality of their sound.

Plug & play

The SC 425 USB eliminates the need for an audio interface, preamp, and all associated cables – which is ideal if you’re impatient to get started, or on the road a lot. The mic's dedicated potentiometers allow you to subtly adjust the input gain and the headphone output volume. Thanks to its plug & play functionality, the microphone works out of the box with both Windows and Mac operating systems without needing to install any drivers. The integrated headphone output allows you to directly monitor the input signal without any latency. The SC 425 USB is primarily aimed at podcasters and singers who want to record in a home-studio environment, which is why the package includes a pop filter, a table stand, and a shock mount.

About the t.bone

Since 1994, the t.bone has been one of Thomann’s in-house brands, and its name can be found on devices such as headphones, wireless systems, in-ear equipment, and various microphones and matching accessories. “the t.bone” products are made exclusively by renowned companies who also manufacture products for other well-known brands. This provides a clear advantage: Brand-quality products at very reasonable prices. And word gets around: One in seven Thomann customers has already bought at least one product from the t.bone.

A saviour in many situations

The frequency response of the SC 425 USB features a slight bump at around 10 kHz, adding a subtle yet recognizable shine to the voice that is often found in professional recordings. In addition, the SC 425 USB has a cardioid polar pattern, which effectively attenuates unwanted sounds and interference from its back and sides. Room and ambient noises are thus kept to a minimum, even if the home studio does not have the proper acoustic treatment.

Wunderbar
JonasVer, 27.01.2021
Das Mikrofon wird in einem Koffer geliefert, es ist alles dabei, was benötigt wird. Das Mikrofon hat eine hochwertige Qualität und fühlt sich wertig an. Ein 2m Kabel wird mitgeliefert, etwas länger dürfte es in manchen Fällen schon sein.
Windows erkennt das Mikrofon problemlos. Ein Kopfhörer kann direkt an dem Mikrofon angeschlossen werden. Der Windows-Sound wird durchgeschleift und die Lautstärke kann eingestellt werden. Jedoch kann nicht der Mix zwischen Windows Sound und Mikrofon Sound eingestellt werden, es ist immer halbe halbe. Daher kommt ein unangenehmes Rauschen auf dem Kopfhörer, dadurch nutze ich diesen Ausgang nicht.
Den Mute-Taster ist unbrauchbar, er regelt zwar das Mikrofon komplett ab, führt jedoch zu einem lauten knack im Signal.
Ich weiß nicht wo der Unterschied zum sc 420 USB ist. Vermutlich ist es für 10€ weniger genauso gut , nur ohne Mikrofon Gain Regler und ohne Kopfhörer Gain Regler.
Die Sound Qualität des Mikrofons ist in meinem kurzen Test sehr gut.
Ich empfehle das Mikrofon, jedoch habe ich auch keine Erfahrung mit vergleichbaren Produkten.

Einsatz im Home Office für allerlei Aufnahmen
Anja Sch., 28.06.2021
Das T.Bone SC425 ist bei mir zu hause am PC für mehrere Bereiche im Einsatz: zur Aufnahme während des Spielens, für Meetings und Präsentationen, und für kleinere Gesangsaufnahmen für Songs. Später habe ich auch in Planung das ein oder andere kleinere Instrument aufzunehmen, aber dazu bin ich bisher noch nicht gekommen.
Bisher kann ich aber sagen dass das Mikrofon in der Praxis mich absolut überzeugt hat!

Pros:
- Die Qualität der Aufnahmen ist für meine Ansprüche perfekt
- Die Einrichtung lief schnell und ohne Probleme
- Das Mikrofon ist mit dem mitgelieferten Ständer nicht zu klobig, und flexibel genug es fix abzustecken und wegzustellen wenn es gerade nicht gebraucht wird
- USB macht den Anschluss dazu sehr einfach
- Der Ständer ist sehr stabil, da die Untere Platform recht schwer ist - das gibt dem ganzen eine super Stabilität

Cons:
- Keine

Fazit: Für das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis bin ich absolut zufrieden. Die Qualität ist wie erwartet sehr gut, der Ständer ist absolut stabil, und die Einrichtung war kinderleicht.
