Brilliant value for money!
02.02.2016
I have to admit, even after reading all the positive reviews I've been pleasantly surprised by this little chap. It comes in a hard plastic case, lined with foam. The plastic feels a little on the cheap side, but should be fine so long as you don't go chucking the case about like a lunatic.

Vocals/speech come through in their entirety, clear and bright. This would work fine for podcasting/commentary's etc, and you get a pretty decent sense of the room you're recording in too, meaning it could do a decent job with a couple of people on one mic. It's also great for recording guitars/instruments as a room mic, where a sense of the space can really make the difference on a recording. I've not tried it for close micing in this situation yet, but I have high hopes.

If you're after a small diaphragm condenser, you can do a lot worse for a lot more cash!

To me, more then a top mic !!
BennyW, 11.07.2021
I've been using these mics for 2 years now on drum as overheads and Hi-hat. For our genre en perpose. The t.bone EM 800 is more then an average mic. Even in windy situations they work fine with a good balanced sound even for our recordings. So, very good coice for his price !!

Works ok
28.09.2015
I would recommend this microphone for those who occasionally need to record acoustic instruments. I found it to be a good match for steel string guitar, chords, pluck or soloing. It also does OK percussive instruments.
The sonic character is bright or even brittle, but it will take up lows too if you get close enough.
The signal is nice and strong.

Build quality is OK, but there are sturdier mics out there. Getting it into the holder was a bit of a struggle, and the holder itself is not impressive.

Good value, and well suited for some jobs. If I lost this one, I'd get another.

Decent sound, decent price
Nesse, 07.01.2021
I hate the expression "good for the price" because it applies to most products and therefore disqualifies the review. That being said, this microphone is good for the price. I'm using it live for hats. It sounds decent enough, no mind-blowing clarity, but it does the job. It seems like a good build, feels sturdy and it feels like it has some kind of rubbery coating. The chock mount that comes with it links like it will break in a few gigs but then I guess I can just throw it into a standard 58 clip.
