I did not use this for gaming. If you are setting up a home studio then this is perfect for you. If you don't have budget constraint then by all means go buy a $1000 one but if you are on a budget or just starting out then purchase this and save a lot of money. This is a really good mic that can actually record musical instruments crisp and clear. Noise cancelling is above average. If you need a more crisp sound then you can use audacity to remove unnecessary minor background noises from the recording. Highly recommended for podcasts or YouTube videos Sound quality is really really good. Check out few reviews on YouTube, you'll know if it's meant for you.
I didn't get this to replace my high end microphones, but increase the quality of my conference calls. For that, it works fine, especially at this price point. This "looks" like a pro level microphone. The audio isolation is very good. You won't hear microphone rattle. The pop suppressor also prevents popping on "P's" and"S's". I do some broadcast recording and I can hear some distortion when I am close to this microphone, even though I am not clipping. It's hard to get that nice base with the proximity effect without getting close. The record sampling is 44.1kHz at 16 bit (CD Quality).
I originally purchased the 777 for recording voice in planned youtube business videos but have been using it in video conferencing (working from home) nearly everyday since it arrived at my doorstep. Not only does it look cool and professional, the sound quality and pickup is excellent. I had problems before using the built in mic on my pc, but the sound quality on the 777 is excellent. Basically you can use it out of box. Plug it into a usb and you are ready to go. I plan on downloading sound system software when we start publishing videos ... highly recomend this product
I've had this mic for exactly a month. I wanted to wait a while before I reviewed it but feel confident now. I was in the market for a basic USB mic to do live streams during the COVID lock down and landed on the Tonor TC-777 after reading and watching numerous written and video reviews. For what I do, it's perfect. It's literally plug-and-play (nothing to download) and the quality of sound I get out of it is crystal clear. I'm a stand-up comedian and drummer who's been in front of a ton of mics for the better part of my life, both on stage and in the studio, and this feels like it goes above and beyond a "starter" mic, in my opinion. I love that it comes with an attached pop screen and "sock" windscreen. Personally, I've found using both works best, but pop screen alone is also fine. I've used this mic for Zoom calls, Facebook Live streams, and basic recorded voice overs (note: I use Audacity editing software for recordings, not just the mic raw). Which brings me to this: if you know even the very basics of Audacity or similar audio software, you can take this already great mic to the next level. There were a few times I couldn't tell the difference between what I recorded with this and what a friend of mine had recorded for his podcast with a considerably more expensive mic. I've also done a couple live streams where I play drums. Out of curiosity, I set this mic sort of to the side and behind the kit with both the wind and pop screen on, found a volume setting that didn't distort, and could tell a considerable difference between recording drums straight through my laptop mic and with this. That said, if you're looking to track instruments, this likely isn't ideal. It's pretty obviously for vocals. I just wanted to see what catching room sound for drums was like with it. The stand seems very durable and the warranty provides solid peace of mind.
Easy setup pretty much plug and play, excellent sound quality highly recommend
