a cheap microphone
13.07.2016
I'm reluctant to call this a professional microphone. For professional use there are well-known industry standard models for both instrument and vocal mics: the Shure SM57 and SM58 respectively. That's not to say there aren't better alternatives for specific uses, but they are the minimum you should usually consider

HOWEVER, there are on the market a number of cheaper alternatives that will do an okay job if you don't have the cash. This on the other hand is not one of them.

So, who should consider this microphone? In my case I had one of the cheaper alternative instrument mics already and a lead that had been a little mistreated in a live setting, so it was cutting out on me. For less than ten euros I got a back-up mic of sorts and an okay replacement lead for my uses (busking and practice). So I consider this a good buy in this particular instance.

Alternative scenarios: you want a basic mic to practice beatboxing, or a cheap mic for karaoke, or you are recording lofi on purpose for effect. On trying this mic I found it quite "grainy" but I can live with it, especially put through some reverb. I wouldn't recommend it as your only mic, for that one of the industry standard models is ideal, and even some of the cheap alternatives are preferable.

It works
29.03.2016
It's really cheap, but it also really works. I have two of those and have used them in the band practice room for recording demos for several years now. No issues what so ever.
Nothing to really complain about the sound either considering the expectations. When comparing with better ~100 EUR mics side by side, you can still hear that those have a smoother and clearer sound. At the same time nothing is really missing either - it is not very boxy or harsh, just a bit "grainy" perhaps.

Could be better
JustinasK, 27.03.2019
It works, its somewhat fragile so keep an eye for it, sound and response is good for an amateur but if you're planning to use the mike a lot, I would suggest investing few extra euros for a better mic.

A bit tinny. Good for a rehearsal room maybe
Simonwindisch, 22.03.2019
These aren't good. I bought them for a rehearsal room, and they just don't compare in any way to my usual SM58s. You get a tinny, boxy sound. As bad as some cheap Maplin ones that I bought a while back. The price is right, but not if you want to listen to the output.

The t.bone MB45 is a great microphone with a low price that i can recommed for home using. It's made of hard plastic and it's feel good in the hand.
The t.bone MB45 is a dynamic microphone with an on/off switch and a 3 mtr XLR cable.
I have been using the microphone with my numark mixtrack pro and it's really works good. The sound is clear and overall it works good for me. Maybe it's not the best microphone for recording but with that low price i think it's a good buy for all of you that needs a simple microphone with a low price.

A multi-tool, with limited features.
Johan1418, 24.12.2013
If you are in need of a microphone with which one you can record your vocals, guitars and some drums, yet being affordable you should consider buying one of these.
I recommend it for studio recording only, because it doesn't require much to create a sound loop (feedback) so it is not good for live-performances (still it has an on/off button and fits well in hand, so that's why it is not completely hopeless).
Thus not having the best sound-quality for recording either, it does bring justice to your bands first demo-recordings.

Basic mike
Npossibl9, 04.03.2018
This mike is the basic for fast situations, and we can take it as a spare microphone. It is light, in body weight and in sound, without a good bass presence. But it works, and for a really light price.

Only for karaoke use
11.08.2014
I bought this microphone mainly to fill my basket up to get free shipping. I expected to use it as a backup to the SM58 I was using at the time. I can't say I was impressed, quite the contrary! It sounds like your singing from the bottom of a well, it won't cut through unless you scream into it off the top of your lungs and I can't say it's the sturdiest thing around. I wouldn't suggest that you get it if your serious about singing and I definitely wouldn't suggest it for instrumentalist, I couldn't even get an accordion to sound decent through it without feedback. Buy this microphone only as a karaoke mic where sound quality doesn't really matter and you wouldn't lose any serious money if it was destroyed or stolen.

Not the best option
LCRD, 19.09.2016
For me this mic is not the best option even for your first mic for amateur singing or recording...it has pretty low sound quality and it isn't gonna last for a long time. I've barely used it and it's almost broken. For me it's better to save some money and spend it on a better quality mic because this one might let you down.

I wouldn't talk you out of buying these, go for it man.
Steve48, 07.07.2015
An ok mic this one, as you'd expect for such a very reasonable price, its pretty basic, and has a light weight plastic body and feel to it, but good and road worthy for live gigs, in both build quality, and no problems with the sound.

But of course you could do better. For a first gigging set up, these will not let you down.

Okay mic
09.12.2014
I only got this mic because of the low price to bring up my order for delivery purposes. The sound of it is only okay, not very durable and has an on/off switch. The only thing i use this for is if i need to use a mic that im not worried about getting damaged just to record rough ideas while traveling.

Okay for the price
Delirious , 30.05.2018
I bought this microphone to sing at home, since it was incredibly cheap. It was better than I expected, but far from a professional microphone. The sound isn't very clear, it is in fact quite grainy. However, if you're just using it to do karaoke on your home, it does the job.

Great little mic
29.08.2014
We use them for karaoke, as anyone will know, drunk people break mic's so giving them expensive Sure numbers is always a no-no. However, these little puppies are great.

Surprised with how good the sound quality is for a cheap mic. Just be sure to use decent XLRs and you'll get a decent signal.
