Tonor Condenser Microphone Review
The Tonor Condenser Microphone is a budget package to get you started with pod casting as along with microphone you also get a small tripod stand.
It’s a wired microphone, with a standard 3.5mm connector on the end, so it can be plugged into PCs, laptops or cameras.
Setup on a computer is fairly easy, but does require experimentation to get the best sound quality. The manual recommends putting the boost in Windows up to 100%, but that results in loads of hissing. Turn it down to reduce the hiss and you have to hold the mic right next to your mouth to do any recording otherwise the recording will be too quiet (see video review below).
You’ll also need to consider getting a cheap pop filter to eliminate unwanted popping sounds caused when saying certain letters.
Overall it’s an OK mic considering the budget price, for less than £15 you have something to get you started with pod casting with, although it’s worth keeping in mind you’re not going to get top notch quality audio and if you already have a webcam you may find this isn’t much better than the microphone built into that.
However, if you can put up with the niggles of the low cost Tonor Condenser Microphone, don’t mind spending some time finding the best way to get decent quality and want a dedicated mic to get started with pod casting this certainly won’t break the bank.
