t.bone SC 450 USB - Good Sound but Average Quality

Antique Guitars, 30.01.2014
I have been using this microphone for about 6 years for various amateur recording tasks and also for some of my University modules.

This microphone offers great sound recording quality for relatively little money, it has all the features I need for my various recording tasks. The USB connector makes it a flexible tool for home recording and recording on the move. I even used this microphone for Sound Decay and Reverberation tests for the Acoustics module of my Musical Instruments Degree without issue.

The only real problem I have found with this microphone is the quality of the USB connector in the microphone itself. I had to have it sent away twice for repair to fix problems with the USB connector.

Overall this is a good microphone which records good quality sound and is good value for money. It does however need some re-designing in regards to the USB connection.

Substantial value

Sorwis, 16.09.2014
This is an excellent large diaphgram microphone for the price. I've been using the SC 450 USB for a few months now for speech applications. So far I've had no issues with it and it has been a major update to any other microphone I've previously owned.

USB offers effortless connectivity to any PC and being phantom powered, it is the only connector you ever need to use with it. The SC 450 USB works without any proprietary drivers on Windows PCs. The built in ADC is relatively hiss free but its main benefit is really the ease of use since no external intefaces are required and not the highest fidelity audio. The build quality is solid and the whole microphone feels sturdy which is rare for devices in this price range. Sound is natural and rich, especially suitable for speech applications. Low cut filter and one step sensitivity adjustment are welcome features and give extra value for this already competitively priced microphone.

Very much recommended.
