A Real Bargain
johnm64, 02.03.2019
I was using a cheap usb condenser microphone which I was not totally satisfied with, being rather hollow sounding. So I wanted something better and saw this t.bone mb85 Beta microphone for not much more than I paid for the usb microphone. Bought with the Behringer U-Phoria umc22 audio interface the cost was only ¤80 for both. I can't compare it with the established mikes like the Shure SM58 because I've never used it. All I can say is that I was looking for a clear, natural sounding microphone for a good price and this perfectly fits the bill. It seems to me to be quite a professional microphone but either way, if you're looking for a quality microphone at a bargain price this microphone will be a very good option.

As for the characteristics at least for my voice when I eq through audacity I find that rolling off the bass slightly and increasing the treble produces the best sound for me. Actually the opposite of the usb I was using but I wouldn't say it is a particularly bassy microphone. It's quite balanced. I do have to push the gain up to 75% on the umc22, any higher and it starts clipping like crazy. It isn't the loudest, in fact I wish it was but audacity will raise the volume sufficiently for my needs. I just use it for voiceover on various audios I do.

So 5 stars for the price to performance ratio.

Quality Microphone
B Boy, 20.10.2017
Working in the radio sector in Ireland I have always been keep an eye out for a cost effective alternative to the sm58. The t.bone MB85 beta has blown me out of the water. With it's very rugged build, crisp sound and excellent price I think I have finally found my alternative.

I have used the t.bone MB85 beta in a wide number of instances. Live Music, Recording sessions, debates and social media video applications. In every instance the MB85 has preformed remarkably. I have and will continue to recommend this microphone my friends and colleagues.
