TONOR TC20 XLR Condenser Microphone
TC20 is an XLR condenser microphone kit of exceptional quality. The microphone adopts a cardioid polar pattern with excellent off-axis sound suppression capabilities, it also has a low-noise FET preamplifier, high SPL handling and wide dynamic range, which can provide smooth, high-end clarity sound. And the T20 boom arm included in the kit is made of durable steel with a huge desk clamp (4 times larger contact area than traditional versions). Designed for studio recording, home studio, podcasting, voice-over, streaming, YouTube video production, etc.
I just want to start this off by saying that you WILL need phantom power or some sort of audio interface/mixer. Thankfully I already had one in the Scarlett Solo which gets the job done! With that said, this microphone is good! I already own a Samson Q2U which is a little bit more in price, but not by much. This TONOR mic puts out a very crisp sound with no feedback! Keep in mind, this probably has a lot to do with it being an XLR mic and NOT a USB mic! However, in testing, I did notice one thing that I didn't like, but could just be personal preference and that was the missing lows. I know this can be adjusted on a mixer or in software, but the mic itself felt hard to control trying to get that lower sound to it. This could be due to the fact that it is a condenser mic and not a dynamic if I had to guess. Other than that, however, I have no complaints! The build quality feels solid and the arm it comes with is SOLID! I was quite impressed by how much you can get for the $60 price tag! 100% worth it if you are just starting out and need something to get set up and running! Hope this helps! I can speak to delivery being on time and packaging. It came nicely bundled in a heavy duty box and very secure inside a foam cushioned box. So his review of the actual product is as follows...It's a very good looking mic set and very sturdy. The boom arm is steel, easy to move and has a large desk clamp to hold it securely to the top. The pop filter has a large surface area and really cuts down on the "p & b" plosive sounds and helps eliminate background noises. It has a removable mic cover and cable ties. It also comes with a metal shock mount to help eliminate unwanted noise transmitted from his keyboard or mouse actions. He did remind me that it does not come with an external power source. You'll need to connect the mic set up to a phantom power source. He said it looks great and is very happy with his new mic set up. All in all a fantastic microphone kit!
The mic itself is pretty solid and the stand mount are amazing for the price point.
..like most im definitely skeptical with these cheap microphone kits because they almost never pass my testing for one reason or another. As you can imagine running a full time tech & gaming channel for streaming and YouTube reviews i get a ton of product in my hands so let me just say this... The Microphone Sound Quality alone on this mic sounds better than most microphones double its price tag....you get a full kit of high quality parts to go with it which the boom arm alone is probably $40 and is made of steel and has a durable nice feel to it....this kit is undervalued in my opinion and is a steal at this price tag...the only downside i found was the shock-mount was hard to fix once tangled and that this setup requires phantom Power. if you already have an xlr microphone or a phantom power source your rocking in your setup your golden....Other than that its a fantastic microphone and its definitely worth more than $60 but dont tell Tonor that... If you would like to watch the full review i did on my YouTube channel with this microphone check it out on my channel "DetroitFury" the video is titled "A full audio Kit for $60? Yikes! - TONOR TC20 Review"
Overall for $60 its a great value, mic sounds good, heavy duty boom arm. Only negative is it DOES require a power supply. which can run $25 for cheap one.
For the price, this is actually above and beyond. The bar to hold the mic is sturdy, surprisingly. The mic itself does a pretty good job picking up sound only it sounds a little less warm/full than I'm used to. Some of that is all about having a mixing panel to get the sound you want. The look of this is standard/professional, and the functionality of the overall set is pretty perfect. For the price, I don't think there is a better deal, I feel that without question.
