  • Great quality sound
  • Pop filter and shock mount included

Future Twitchers and budding YouTubers know they need a quality microphone to get started. Or maybe you’re working from home and you’re tired of the echo and tinny sound of your laptop’s built-in microphone. The TONOR TC-777 is a great option if you’re looking for a quality microphone that doesn’t break the bank.

Features 

  • Included accessories: The TONOR TC-777 microphone came well equipped with accessories that did not come with my Blue Snowball microphone: a shock mount and a pop filter.  Both the TONOR TC-777 and the Blue Snowball microphone came equipped with a tripod that works for basic recording, but I found myself constantly propping up the microphone with a stack of boxes.  A microphone arm is a better option, which you can also obtain from TONOR. 
  • Plug and play: The microphone required no special configuration when plugging into my Mac and Linux machines, and Windows 10 was able to automatically configure itself for the TONOR TC-777 as well.  The microphone has an integrated 1.5 meter USB cable that can’t be disconnected from the microphone (the Blue Snowball has a detachable USB cable). 

Performance 

The sound quality of the TONOR TC-777 with the microphone is particularly good and is fine for YouTube content creation or even Twitch streamers. Please refer to the attached recording sample for a comparison between the Blue Snowball and the TONOR TC-777. 

The only potential issue I see is that the TONOR TC-777 is more omnidirectional, meaning that it could pick up sounds from behind or beside the microphone, where the Snowball is only open to one direction. So, the TONOR TC-777 would be ideal for capturing a group conversation or when interviewing another individual, for example. However, for individual recording, the TONOR TC-777 will still be fine, you’ll just want to find a quiet environment to record in. 

Value

Compared to the Blue Snowball microphone, the TONOR TC-777 costs less and still provides great sound recording capabilities. The added accessories such as the shock mount and pop filter provide further value
