When searching for a USB microphone, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the number of options available. If a limited budget is added, the choice becomes a bit complicated but not much. To help in this process, we had the opportunity to review the popular Tonor TC30 RGB, one of the most popular models among low-cost microphones.

How can I use the microphone on my computer?

We place the pop filter on the microphone, connect it to the computer and we are ready to work as it is a plug and play type microphone, so there is nothing complicated in its use.

This means that it is not necessary to install any driver for it to work. However, it is important to choose the microphone as the sound source. This can be found in the microphone’s manual.

If you are using a computer with Windows, you should go to the “sound” section and within it, select the “recordings” section and choose the microphone. If you are using a Mac, you should go to Settings > Sound > Input > Tonor TC30.

What else should I know?

If you are not an audiophile, you are probably looking for a good, nice, and cheap microphone. You surely plan to use this microphone to have good sound quality in calls, record yourself in a YouTube video, or something similar. If that’s your case, then the Tonor TC30 RGB is an excellent option, as it meets these needs without requiring a large budget.

At a technical level, it is worth mentioning that it has an output impedance of 2.2K Ω, a maximum SPL of 100 decibels, a bit rate of 16 bits and a sensitivity of -32 dB ± 3 dB.

If you have no experience with microphones for recording on your computer, this probably won’t mean much to you, but it means that it has a good acoustic range that can capture the details of the audio recording, but it is not as sensitive as to capture all the sounds from your environment.

In summary, unlike a dynamic microphone which is suitable for recording music, this microphone is perfect for recording soft speech.

Areas for improvement

There are a couple of features we would have appreciated. The Tonor TC30 RGB does not have any buttons or other inputs besides the USB cable input.

We would have liked it to include some features of the Tonor Orca 001, such as a button for noise reduction, a button to mute recording, and an RGB volume indicator that can be controlled from the microphone.

Additionally, it does not have an audio input for controlling the input. In general, it does not allow us to perform any type of audio manipulation that we are capturing.

All of these functions are very useful, especially the ones included in the Tonor Orca 001, if you plan to use your microphone to record games or just to have quick and easy access to a mute button.

Although we like the audio quality of the Tonor TC30 RGB and it is a good option if you are looking for something good, beautiful, and economical to record audio comfortably, if you want something more advanced, we recommend opting for its more professional but equally compact model.

Conclusion: Is the Tonor TC30 RGB worth it?

We close this review of Tonor’s low-cost microphone par excellence by saying that if what you are looking for is a microphone of good quality at a price lower than $50 USD, then the Tonor TC30 RGB is an excellent option that will not disappoint you. Especially if you plan to use it sporadically.

However, if you plan to use it regularly and need to control the volume, noise reduction, and mute quickly and easily, we recommend you opt for the Tonor Orca 001.
