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 own two of the tonor usb microphones models and there is a vast difference between the TC777 and the TC30. I bought them for web conferencing and the TC30's pick up pattern is much more forgiving on how far you stand from the mic. On the other hand if you can position the microphone within a foot of your face (pod cast, streaming) the TC-777 picks up really good. The minute you fall back from within a foot, the volume goes drastically down. However the sound quality on both mics are ages ahead of the stock laptop built in mic. The voices and the room ambience are so good to hear in full range (50hz to 20k hz) compared to other narrow bandwidth mics. So overall if you are in to podcast or streaming a (concert, church) event TC777 works great. If you are just using for a video conferencing with voice pick up the TC30. Thank you tonor for these great products.
Pretty good. Good.
I would give this five stars but the thread on the pop filter got stripped as soon as I put it on and now it is stuck a minor issue but besides that an amazing first mic for my streaming set up! I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a beginner mic
