This is a first review "Out of the Box", so as not to forget my impressions premires!
I will return qd I will have better test.

so ...
1) it is very small, very cute but very small. nothing do with the copies of U87 usual. it is 16 cm high and 4cm in diameter!
(Yes. .. when you compare your naked! ... Was not very big! ... Especially for a micro black ;-) ! ...).
dsol ...

2) it stinks!
he feels the typical product of Chinese flea market hub (like the plastic flashlights!).
he besion to grind, even if only to eliminate its various solvents! ...

3) it is pretty well finished, a nice black and srieux with srigraphies dores discrtes which are not cheap.
more beautiful than the picture (of aillor it looks better from the front).

4) it comes complete in a small cardboard box containing the microphone, his imitation leather cover, an adapter nut and suspension.

5) the suspension is good (we will use if it is solid). its gains are elastic tissue. this is very well. some brands do not and that's unfortunate. soon as the qd qt elastic micro earth not fall!
however the suspension is adjustable every type of microphone (type U87), handy if you have multiple mics like me, some without suspension ... but that with this small mic ... is a well ... but if you pull on the wire (or if your cable is very very heavy!) Gently slide the microphone!
That said, we do not care. if you're scared, you put a small black elastic around the microphone above the suspension, as a safeguard!

5) for now and for the price, overall good impression.


He walks.
I vrifi.
No problem.
Some bass and treble and mdiums! ...
tonnament and a good level of output ...
on the ridges violent voice is a little "hard" on an acoustic guitar, mandolin or dulcimer, trs is amazing, better than other much more expensive stuff! ...
it is cardioid only, no pad or low cut. in fact it home in a low cut 6db of 100 hz.

Now, given the conditions under which branch I'll wait I rode it, he breathes and I really test it before saying sth ;-)

and then, just something ... a static is used with a windscreen.
before saying a microphone has a little hiss or priest, vrifions it is used with a real antipop two sails.
you never know ...

on this, more!

... APRS few hours, I post this notice in the thread ddi comparison to sc 300:

I did a comparison test trs home studio with microphones of comparable prices now (not quite ... but say "cheap").

the sc400 59 euros, included suspension
the Oktava mk319, 139 euros excluding suspension
and rode NT2 150-200 euros okaz qd was bcp bowl! suspension but understood.

config home stud: Layla 20 bit, mx 8000 Behri to have all the same prampli (uncorrected), all facing in one take me voice speaks, sings, whispers, coughs ... 40 cm without antipop, mac not isolated (cabin insulation open), cubase, BM15A is costing right.

All the same output level prs little (maybe a little less Oktava).

t-bone quality of trs thundering weaker but serious (there cutting down a 100 hz 6db in original), more than the Oktava dtaill in the treble, no staining particulire , no breath, may be lacking a little character, supporting the vicinity less than the other two without antipop (Bloum in plosives lgres same low, but unless a Oktava bcp MK012! ...).
it will still see qd rod.

Oktava not sharp, it looks like a dynamic (almost), no breath (or some trs), very nice low, seems the most natural of the three, no sound of a tube as is often done with this microphone a little mdium proximity in the rendering, but nice

rode, the more sensitive, many dtails in the high but comes down a little lower than the same qd t-bone, very pleasant and flattering but transplanted bcp noise studio (and seems a low blow by itself, too), gives an effect of proximity organic but seems less natural than the Oktava (and is, despite what they say, more acute than the Chinese), microphone with its sensitivity more important is a first prize in the range "neumann and company" as the top of the range below

in total, one that has the least dfauts apparent is the t-bone. for its price it is awesome and it is happening everywhere. it is less vivid and less nanmoins dtaill a rode, but rode a little breath and "dtail" may be a handicap (seems as if it has disappeared from the Deutsche licatement heating and in a pice dshumidifie!). bcp is more all terrain than Oktava, but the Oktava dgage a natural feeling pretty impressive if you're looking for high fidlit (up quite a bit 8khz taking) or enough cevante if we try to give an impression of "modern studio quality"!

plain: I put the rode on a soft voice, which seeks its sduire organicit dtail and loaded in a mix but not on an acoustic guitar,

I put the t-bone on an acoustic guitar in the plaant well and a voice that wants dtail (which kind of serious too) in a mix o his breath and lack of sensitivity to noise home-stud is more, the tone color of t-bone is somewhat midway between the other two (and more lurks close)

I put the Oktava qd I want the 40 cm or natural sound coldplay rock / tom waits in proximity with a nice low, I sometimes tinker the qualo qd must if I want to give the "pep".

honntement they are complementary and trs for correct prices drisoires.
we have so spoken ill of Chinese that I am pleasantly surprised by this t-bone 400 francs, cover and hanger included. (That said, I wonder if it is not more than a static one lectret true ... how you will age-NAME).
I tend prfrer nanmoins the rode (but has inconvnients) or the Oktava (but it has gaps) that are more "marqus" but I have to r listens and lets the brid is dbrider a little!

That said, the diffrences between them are subtle and it is impossible to imagine in a quality three times that price is only 10 years.


the druid.

ps: I have just taken the instrument string guitars, with the t-bone.
it's really not bad at all on this one l (l has just buried the issue Oktava "natural").

résumé in the end, and compared to the price more expensive stuff, it's really not bad at all! ...
