What can I use this microphone with?
This XLR microphone can be used with a wide range of mixers, amplifiers and recorders. Record or listen to instruments, vocals or narration with this microphone. Connect the 1.8m XLR male to female from the microphone to your device with a 9-48 V phantom power supply. It really is that simple to set up.

What is the advantage of having a condenser microphone?
Condenser microphones are the most common type of microphones for recording audio. They are often used in recording studios as they have a greater ability to reproduce all the audio produced by an instrument or voice. Using phantom power, condenser microphones usually have a louder output but can be more sensitive to loud sounds.

How does the TM-80 work?
With its table top tripod and shock mount, this microphone can be set up on any desktop and pointed at the audio you want to capture. The elastic shock mount reduces rumble and noise in the recording to give you clear audio. With a directional cardioid microphone, you get audio from whatever direction you’re pointed in without a lot of background noise. The TM-80 internal circuitry is optimised to reduce noise and distortion, making it perfect for studio recording, and with its 18mm diaphragm 136 dB sound pressure level and -38 dB sensitivity you’ll get great quality audio every time.

I have a Tonor 700 condenser mic which comes with a 3.5mm aux jack. It requires phantom power. Could this be used with this model? Or would I need to change the lead to a 3 pin male/female lead
