An acceptable entry level mic
TeamM, 05.02.2020
I purchased this microphone several years ago and still pull it out now and again for quick jobs where I'm not too bothered about the self noise the microphone produces.

It's a rather light mic as it's housing is made from aluminium which is great if you're attaching it to a cheap stand or mounting it on a camera (and don't want too much weight). For such a light microphone I always thought it would be easy to break but it's been dropped or has fallen with a stand a few times and still works without any noticeable difference. I personally usually a lot of my microphones for foley work. I usually grab this at times where there's potential for the mic to get damaged.

You can provide phantom power through batteries. This is great if you wanted to capture audio on something like a DSLR using a XLR to 3.5mm jack cable. I have two of these microphones. One of them I lent to a friend who used it for this exact purpose. He left the batteries he used within the microphone. By the time I had it back (probably about a week), everything inside the casing was covered in rust and the batteries themselves were leaking. I'm not sure if it was the batteries or the microphone at fault. Either way, the mic itself still works when providing phantom power through an XLR cable but I haven't tested either of them with batteries since.

If you're just getting into using mics and want this to record voice, certain types of instruments (I specifically thinking of a guitar from experience) or something like foley then this mic might not be bad to have.

You get what you pay for
l392685, 09.07.2018
For the price you pay for this mic, you simply can't expect too much. It is built quite well. You get a box and a cable for it.
Sound: it is OK, but quite noisy. It also requires quite some amount of gain which again amplifies the noise.
It is OK for interviews, but I wouldn't use it in studio. Just doesn't sound right for me. I used it couple of times for Hi Hat, but at the end never used the recording.

good for it's price I guess
Mani Draugabani, 17.11.2020
I wanted to try the t.bone mics, simply because the price is redicoulous.

But as I suspected, you always get what you pay for.

It is more then fine for reference, and maybe for interviews, but not movie quality

Perfect mic for stage capture
Steve4081, 31.10.2014
Purchased to pick up the general audio, vocal sound on stage such as choir and or spoken word for productions and they are great. Very well built and they look far more expensive than they are. Supplied in a suitable box to keep them safe when not in use and a lead too. Well worth the buy!
