Exceeding all expectations!

My aim was to find a small footprint microphone that could be used on a Leslie cabinet.
I have used so many combinations over the years for the top and bottom but never really found the perfect combination.
I saw the EM800 on the t.bone site and got redirected to Thomann.
I figured for the price there would always be a use for them somewhere in the studio.
When I received the box I was first impressed by the little case and upon opening
it is really neat package all foam lined. When you hold the mic it has a very nice solid feel and a good weight and the finish is excellent.
The pop shield is a really nice fit and the XLR connection looks gold plated.
I immediately plugged it into my console and sent the signal out to the monitors.
I was really surprised. The feedback rejection was amazing. Just speaking into the mic gave a very flat and warm response with no eq.
I compared it to an AKG 451 and 414 and then an SM57. These little units have very little colouration at all. They just sound very full. I expected them to be thin and soul less. On the contrary they punch well above their weight and have a much sweeter low end that the 451.
I am not sure how they would fair in a live environment but for me in a studio application I think they will be the 'little gems'. When all others fail I think I will be reaching for these.
I have yet to put them on the Leslie but I know as a matched pair they will do the trick.

Just what I was looking for
Anonymous 09.09.2014
I'd been looking for a replacement lectern / pulpit mic for my church for some time, struggling to find a small diaphragm for the right price with a tight pattern. The Samson C02 came close, but it was a little wide and didn't have the same presence as the old mic. I thought I might as well have a punt on a t.bone as the spec was promising and the price was right.

I was not disappointed. The EM-800 has a very similar sound to the mic it replaced and a nice tight pattern for high gain before feedback (we worship in a 200 year old building that isn't about to change). Into the bargain it has respectably low self-noise and high sensitivity.

The only very slight negative was the two MICs in the box were not matched - differing by 1-2dB between 10-12kHz, which didn't matter for me.

total ok

I can not write any bad things, it is works as you think about the the price/value, sounds good, well designed, I think it looks real good, good connectors, so I have satisfied totaly. One small thing, that I need to mention, that the thread adapter equipped originaly is made by plastic, and one of them is not fit well, so I wasn't able to use, I can not fix that for a stand, but now i have ordered metal ones.

Good Mic for the price
Anonymous 20.12.2015
I've been looking for a decent mic and not so expensive to start recording different sounds sources than musical instruments and get samples from it, for example singing bowls, minor percussion, grains on surfaces, etc.

I have to say that the microphones are quite nice with a clear recording and for the price I admit that these is a nice choice, at least if you don't need and excessive amount of clarity.

One thing to keep in mind is when you use it while playing live, I was generating some uncomfortable feedback and is very worrying to play with background feedback and preventing it to get bigger.

The packaging is very good, hard black box ideal to transport and move in luggage, even if you let the box drop to the ground (not recommended) the box and internal protection surely will absorb part or total impact.

One thing to keep in mind is noise or static generated when you touch the microphones, when they are connected to the sound card with you can hear a tiny noise in the background and when you stop touching it disappears, this is normal static around any electrical devices, but just keep in mind to be aware of it and avoid any background noise in your recording unless you want it for experimental reasons.

In general terms if you don't have much budget and want a decent pair of microphones I would strongly advise to buy these couple.
