This is a large diaphragm studio condenser microphone, albeit a small one. If you are used to using dynamic microphones for recording you will instantly notice the improvement - the crystal clarity that a large diaphragm condenser gives in comparison.
This is also a very cheap large diaphragm studio condenser microphone. In my experience, normally that cheapness would be reflected in the quality of the built-in pre-amp. I expected a relatively high noise floor - background hiss with the gain turned up to record quiet sources. I have to report it's not there.
According to the included specification sheet, this microphone has a better noise performance than my Audio Technica AT4033. It would be a complex process for me to actually measure if that is actually true, but in using the two side by side I have no reason to believe that the performance is worse.
I have used this mic to record vocals and acoustic guitar, both of which it does very well. It doesn't have a built-in pad, so I wouldn't use it for anything loud like horns. The low-cut switch is internal and requires unscrewing the body - but this is only required for close mic-ing, and these mics are best used with a bit of distance between source and mic (with a pop-screen for vocals).
The included shock mount is a necessity for this type of microphone, and the one supplied does the job quite adequately (considering you could spend the same money for just a shock mount on its own).
If you haven't yet recorded with a large diaphragm condenser, then get yourself one of these. Just remember though, the money you save on buying this (rather than a more expensive model) will have to be spent on acoustic screening once having a decent mic shows up how bad your room acoustics really are. But you'd have to do that if you spent more on a mic.

Price quality.

It is obvious that with this microphone we not top quality, because we are talking about a not very expensive microphone, a reasonable price, normal that we do not have top quality. But seeing the price for the microphone is very good! With a good sound card, we can make a good quality. Captures well the voice, I left quite clear if we have a good acoustics as well. I hope to buy, not disappointed me!

superb mic for the money

The t.bone SC400 is an amazing mic for this price and we've been very impressed by the sound quality. I'm no mic expert but after using a shure for studio vocal recording for a couple of years, the t.bone has transformed the sound of our singers. I was expecting improved recordings but didn't expect the difference this mic made: much warmer and more rounded quality. I've been using it for a couple of years now and it seems extremely robust (although it never leaves the studio so it doesn't have a hard life.) And there's even something about the classic "BBC" appearance of the mic in it's anti-vibration sling that seems to bring out better performances: singers seem to have a sense that they need to do justice to what looks like a very professional piece of equipment. (I could be imagining that of course but psychology in the studio is important.)
Delivery was extremely quick (although Thomann's delivery is always impressive in my experience).

Highly Recommend!

I use this for recording with my Focusrite ( as it needs 48V phantom power )

Pros:
- Fantastic look to this mic for the price, love the black and gold/orange looking detail- looks very professional which is definitely important when recording.
- Brilliant sound quality! This was my first condenser microphone and I was not disappointed.

Cons:
- It is a nuisance that you cannot plug in without phantom power. Make sure you do your research that your recording equipment has 48V Phantom Power or else you will be disappointed that it won't work.

Summary:
I would definitely recommend this to anyone starting out recording or even as a spare mic. I even used this to record acoustic guitars. If you need a quick recording mic and are on a low budget, definitely go for it. :)

A good microphone, good quality for the price. I use it mainly for vocals in the studio but have used it for a trombone and drum overhead in the past with good results. The only issue I have had with it is the elastic in the suspension cage broke after some fairly light studio use. But it was easily fixed. The sound is good for the amateur studio recording I do. I would recommend it.
