Simplicity and affordability don’t mean poor quality, and the Tonor TC-777 USB microphone shows us just why that is. The low-budget microphone is a perfect starter microphone that does what it says on the tin. In this short but helpful review, we’ll look at the positives and negatives of this promising microphone.
As mentioned above, the microphone is cheap, especially compared to competing microphones made by brands such as Razor, Blue, and Rode. Yet, the Tonor TC-777 has a solid frequency response range of 100HZ-16kHZ with an input sample rate of 44.1kHz, which is more than fair for its cost. In addition, it’s a well-crafted microphone with a relatively decent chassis compared to its more expensive counterparts. Its aesthetically pleasing looks will even grab the eye of the artist vlogger.
While it’s a universal microphone suited for gamers and vloggers, it has limitations. For example, microphones such as the Yeti are better at picking up the lower range where the Tonor TC-777 struggles. Also, due to its boundaries, the sound can sound a bit empty; thus, if you’re a musician, you’ll probably want to skip this microphone for your home studio.
Like the sixth man in an NBA championship-winning team, the TC-777 has its job and can be a significant part of a winning gaming setup that requires a solid recording quality for Twitch and YouTube. Its easy-to-use structure and clean look make it a viable option for a varied demographic beyond gaming. And while it has range limitations, it’s hard to demote it due to its affordable price point. Unlike microphones such as the Blue Snowball, it doesn’t have a strong brand to carry it further but certainly does well for its size.
