I’ve been using a cheaper mic for awhile so this was an amazing upgrade!! I’ve dealt with other mics in the past and I think this one works incredibly!!! The small editions of a low cut and gain reduction are really nice for workflow and overall this mic has really improved my production!!!

A Stellar Microphone at an Unbeatable Price!

I recently purchased the TZ Stellar X3 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone, and I have to say, I am thoroughly impressed. This microphone is an absolute gem and offers exceptional value for its price.

First off, the sound quality is comparable to high end mics. The X3 captures every nuance of my voice with incredible clarity and precision. Whether I'm recording vocals, podcasts, or even acoustic instruments, this microphone delivers pristine audio that rivals some of the pricier options on the market. I've used similar microphones in the $3000 range, and I must admit that the X3 comes surprisingly close in terms of overall performance.

The build quality of the X3 is equally impressive. It feels solid and well-constructed, exuding a professional vibe. The large diaphragm design ensures accurate sound reproduction and helps eliminate unwanted background noise, allowing my recordings to shine without any distractions. Plus, the included shock mount and pop filter are excellent additions, providing extra convenience and value.

One of the standout features of the X3 is its versatility. It effortlessly adapts to various recording situations and excels in both studio and home setups. Whether you're a professional musician or an aspiring podcaster, this microphone is a worthy companion for capturing high-quality audio.

Setting up the X3 was a breeze. It's compatible with a wide range of audio interfaces, and I experienced no compatibility issues whatsoever. The microphone also comes with a handy user manual that provides clear instructions, making it easy to get started right out of the box.

If I had to give one average thing to say about it, is maybe the case clips could of been a little more beefy, but not a big deal at all. The fact that you get a hard case for it is amazing at this price.

Overall, I highly recommend the TZ Stellar X3 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone. It's an incredible value for the price, offering exceptional sound quality and versatility. If you're in the market for a microphone that can rival much more expensive options, the X3 is definitely worth considering. I'm giving it a well-deserved 5-star rating and urging anyone looking for a reliable and affordable microphone to give it a try. You won't be disappointed!

With so many great value for money microphones available these days, the Stella X3 is right up there with any microphone I've used in the past 25 years. So far I've recorded backing vocals, acoustic guitar and used it to record a livestream of our Family Band. Its' presentation is also top notch, something often overlooked these days. The high pass and the pad make it very useful for any application in the recording studio.

The Stellar X3 is probably the best microphone that I’ve owned - however it is also the most expensive. I have read many reviews and message boards about this mic and they all say that the Stellar X3 is as good as microphones that cost several times more. I can’t verify that exactly since I don’t use those mics, but I can say this mic is very good and well worth the price compared to lesser mics that I've used.

This is a mic with an XLR connection, and I have it plugged into a USB audio interface that connects to my PC. I have it on an articulating arm on my desk, so the shock mount is a nice inclusion with this product. I have been using it for voice calls, livestreaming, and making videos, and people have given me some compliments on the quality of my voice. But overall, while I could tell it was nice, I didn't necessarily feel that it was 3 times better-sounding than my mics that cost one-third of the price.

But then I recorded some acoustic guitar with it. This microphone really captured all of the details very crisply. And when I recorded vocals, it was the clearest that my voice had ever sounded. I was pretty blown away by the quality, and really how crisp this microphone is. It’s one thing to capture good audio, but even more to hear every single detail. I think it excels at acoustic instruments. I did mic my guitar amp and played electric guitar with it, but I don’t think this is the ideal use case - even though it still sounded good.

With some multitracking and effects, the song I recorded with this microphone was one of the best-sounding songs I think I’ve ever recorded. Which I think says a lot about the mic. It records what seems like a pretty true-to-life sound, maybe a little “warmer” than neutral. Then you can apply whatever effects you want to get the sound you like. Very versatile raw audio.

I think that if you’re serious about audio quality and don’t want to spend a fortune, this microphone will be an excellent balance for the best value. Sure, you can buy a lower-cost mic, but if you have a little extra to spend on audio then this is a good investment that doesn’t break the bank. Keep in mind that because of the XLR connection, you will need an audio interface between this and your computer.

In terms of miscellaneous notes, this microphone came with a very fancy case that made a good first impression on me and it’s nice that I can take it out of my house easily if needed. It included a nice shock mount with a standard mic stand connector, and a windscreen. These are very useful accessories to have.

Disclaimer: I'm by no means a microphone or tech expert. I'm a violinist, but wow I am very impressed with how this mic makes my violin sound. I own a few other mics, the RODE usb microphone, and a Maono condenser microphone. I think out of every microphone that I have ever used, this mic makes my violin sound the best I ever heard with just the raw recording (unedited sound). In the video I add just a bit of reverb onto the raw recording to match the accompaniment, nothing else. I didn't mess with EQ or add any other filters and I'm super impressed with the tone. The build of the microphone feels and looks like good quality. It is also super nice that it comes with a shock mount, which I think is essential if you care about sound quality. 5/5 stars for sound quality and quality of material. Is it the most value you can get for $350? I want to say yes but I also haven't tried enough mics to know for sure. Amazing Microphone.

I have a small YouTube Channel (@andydalbolguitar) and usually record DI or with a USB Blue Yeti Mic when needed. The Stellar X3 is for sure an upgrade over the Yeti. In the video are two original compositions. The first piece is called "Sunset Stroll" and I used the Stellar X3 to record the classical guitar and the electric nylon guitar. The second piece is a semi-improvised rumba demonstrating some basic flamenco guitar techniques and how this mic sounds with golpes and other percussive guitar techniques (apologies in advance for the less than perfect performance!).

I must preface this review by saying that I do no have a lot of experience using a mics for recording. Overall, I found the Stellar X3 from TZ Audio to work as advertised. I personally had difficulty setting up and using the microphone, but I attribute this to my lack of experience. The recordings in the video use the Stellar X3 with no EQ. The only thing I did in post was attempt to remove the background noise. Where I live is far from ideal for recording, and I was unable to remove all of the background noise. I noticed this in other peoples reviews on Amazon, YouTube, and TikTok, so I am not the only person who had lots of noise in the final video. Some tips that helped reduce the background noise before recording were using the high pass filter to roll off the lower frequencies and also the -10db pad. Then I opted for recording closer to the mic as farther away picked up too much noise.

This is a great first microphone for me and I am exited to get better at using it. The Stellar X3 will no doubt improve the audio quality for my YouTube channel. I watched many videos on this mic before purchasing and I know it is a high quality, professional microphone. If you are a pro, then this mic is a nice addition to your mic closet. If you are a beginner like me, this is a great starting point, although you may experience similar difficulties like I did at first. It is all a learning process but I am confident that the Stellar X3 will help make my future content shine.

I enjoyed using this mic for recording vocals and hand percussion instruments. I had never heard of the brand, but I ended up being pleasantly surprised by it. Build quality of the shock mount and the mic itself seem very solid, nicer than the under $200 mics I've tried which is to be expected. It also came with a foam padded carrying case and a smaller bag for the mic which I didn't realize would be included. It's a nice touch to add those things and makes it feel more high-end.
I was sent this mic to try, but I wasn't paid to put a good review.

Disclaimer: TechZone Audio Productions sent me this microphone for free, but since I wasn't the professional trombonist myself I figured my friend Luke from Chicago would test it out.

He mentioned earlier that a common recording technique for trombones is to pair a ribbon mic with a condenser to get the best sound. Having only listened to the sound of the Stellar X3, he said "I would be surprised if it didn't (pair well with a ribbon)".

Granted, no microphone is the best for everyone. If he had to pick between just a ribbon or a condenser, "the ribbon is always gonna win". But at the same time, this condenser is excellent for voice over narration.

The only drawback to this condenser is that (like every other condenser out there) it will pick up every sound you hear in the entire room (ac noise, rain outside, anyone talking outside the door, etc.). Therefore, if you want the very best use of this mic you need a quiet studio (perhaps a large closet would suffice).

But besides that, I highly recommend this mic if anyone is specifically looking for a condenser! Thank you TZ Audios for sending me this mic!

This is a quality microphone. I'm the vocalist and rhythm guitarist of an emo/pop punk band (@tradingtwilight) and using this microphone has definitely given my band an added boost to our content videos.

Before using the Stellar X3, we'd used a Blue Snowball as well as an AT2020. Comparing this to those two, I'd say the main things this microphone excels in are clarity of sound and having a forgiving gain ceiling. While both of those microphones were decent stop-gaps for us in the past, they both had a habit of distorting quickly when the volume rose too loud, and recorded mostly at a mid-level frequency that didn't allow for much separation between sound.

This microphone's ability to capture both low and high frequencies effectively allows for a much more dynamic recording, letting vocals shine without getting easily drowned out by an acoustic guitar or cajon. Unlike our previous microphone's, it's really able to separate and properly render the sound coming from a guitar. As such, and as some other reviewers have stated, I've found this microphone great for arpeggios and quiet parts of songs specifically.

The video posted here was taken from a recent twitch stream of ours, recorded in a simple bedroom without really much of any sound proofing. For the environment it was recorded in, I think the quality of the audio speaks for itself. I would certainly recommend this microphone for anyone hoping for a boost to their sound.

I recently had the pleasure of using the Stellar X3 large diaphragm condensator microphone by TZ Audios to record some vocal parts. It has undoubtedly left me impressed. From its build quality to its audio reproduction, the Stellar X3 sets a great quality standard.

First and foremost, the microphone's sturdy metal body and robust shock mount ensure durability and minimize handling noise, allowing for uninterrupted recording sessions. The sleek and elegant design adds a touch of sophistication to any studio setup, making it a visual treat as well.

When it comes to audio performance, the Stellar X3 captures every nuance with remarkable precision, delivering a rich and warm sound that is both natural and transparent. Whether recording vocals, the microphone consistently produces professional-grade results.

Also, the Stellar X3 comes at an affordable price point, making it an excellent investment for both professional studios and aspiring musicenthusiasts like myself.

I recently had the pleasure of using the TZ Stellar X3 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone, and it has completely blown me away.

The most remarkable aspect of the Stellar X3 is its sound quality. This microphone captures audio with a level of clarity and precision that is simply astonishing. I'm mainly using the X3 for vlogs, and it delivers pristine and lifelike audio. It reproduces the full spectrum of frequencies with remarkable accuracy, from deep lows to shimmering highs, making it an ideal choice for a wide range of recording applications.

Besides, the Stellar X3 is built like a tank. Its solid construction exudes durability and professionalism. The microphone feels substantial in your hands, and the included shock mount and carrying case add to its overall robustness. This microphone is a true workhorse, designed to withstand the rigors of studio use and on-the-road recording.

The only problem is the price -- this is not cheap. However, I think it worth the money if you have the right use case.

I am a happy owner of the Stellar X3 microphone.

The mic has come with a nice and sturdy case. It has a premium feel and it is very good for safely carrying the unit. The microhpone also has a good shock mount and a windscreen. Good accessories to have.

In my review video you can hear my acoustic piano on the recording. It might need a little further experimenting on where to put the microphone to have the best sound recroding possible. It is not an easy instrument to record. The Stellar X3 recorded very clear and warm sound of the piano.

All in all, I am very happy with my purchase and I would recommend it to my music colleagues aswell! You get great value for the price.

So far, I am a fan of this microphone. Paired with a PreSonus AudioBox USB 96, I can get crisp, clear sounds through the trombone, euphonium, and tuba. The "-10db" function is superb for teaching online lessons, as I can easily switch that on and off when talking to then demonstrate a technique. And it does not have to be close to my face as I can keep it in the same location for talking and playing. The microphone is heavy and sturdy. Great mic and I'm looking forward to more recordings!

Instead of writing a lot I'll let the attached video do the talking. Note: I did not add any equalization, reverb or any other effects. This is just the plain and flat sound captured by this mic. Really impressive!

I'm not going to get all technical here--or all that creative either. I've used a lot of microphones both on stage and in studios, I also do a lot of editing so I know my way around sound. I basically just plugged it in and started talking. I haven't played at all with mixing--This video is what it sounds like when you simply give it juice and open your mouth. You can see I'm right up close to it, which is how a lot of podcasters sit--you don't get a lot of popping or sibilance. It's great for podcasting and other content creation--there's not too much a difference in sound between this and my other mic which costs over $1,000. It's well-made, feels good in your hand, has a good weight to it , and a good addition to my arsenal. BTW I'm joking about the karaoke--I'm really not that full of myself! :-)

I was highly impressed to find a microphone for under $500 that provides such a high-fidelity audio recording with practically no background noise. I found the -10dB switch handy for close-range performance of louder acoustic instruments, such as clarinet. Other condenser microphones I have used would clip at this distance—even if almost set to 0% input! The hard carry case in which this microphone comes is also quite handy, and the microphone build itself looks clean and feels rugged. I had a lot of fun testing this microphone out by performing a clarinet quintet arrangement of one of my own compositions: "Autumn" (Op. 9a).

The X3 has proved to be quite the workhorse! In the attached video, I used it to record all instruments and vocals. The first part of the video features a bodhran (an Irish/Scottish drum) which is a great example of recording percussion. The second video has vocals and finger picked guitar, to show further types of recording. Both videos also have high and low tin whistles.

The vocals came out neutral and warm. Some other mics have quite a high frequency bump which can make a vocal brittle and emphasize sibilance, but the X3 is very rounded, and it's easy to EQ. There is also a crispness to the vocal. Tin whistles also recorded very warmly, and didn't require much EQ. Strummed acoustic guitar comes through very bright, and fingerpicked is warm. Although, I pick directly with my fingers, and cut my nails, so picking may record brighter for others. I was probably most surprised with the bodhran. The mic really captured the bass without any mud. The bodhran can be manipulated to produce a load of frequencies and sounds, and the mic captured them all brilliantly. The mic would probably also work well as a single mic or overhead for a full drumkit.

Final thoughts. The mic is more versatile than I initially thought, and has proved that it can record a variety of different instruments and frequencies. I would describe the sound as warm and crisp, which works particularly great on vocals. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a single mic that can record a variety of sources. Or anyone looking for a good vocal mic with a vintage edge.

The expression of the high and low frequencies is well balanced and faithfully reproduces the sound of an acoustic guitar.
I could feel the depth in the sound and the realistic sound made it sound as if I was playing on the spot.
The sound is coherent even at high volume when playing chords, and it catches the sound well even at low volume such as finger noises.
It is a great microphone that I am more than satisfied with the price!

As you can hear in my demo music video the quality is professional. It captures a warm and balanced tone and with a little audio processing it will sound like a studio microphone. It's a very solidly built mic and a very nice shockmount is included. The only minor drawback is the hardcase it comes with, it's not very high quality but that's not a big issue for me.

Great bang for your buck. Upon receiving the item, the packaging was very well presented, and the microphone build quality was definitely "stellar". It does really well in picking up the lower frequencies of my melodica (which is what I mainly use it for), and I haven't seen a microphone under $1500 which picks up the frequencies so well. The polar pattern lends to melodica and vocals, minimizing noise from behind, while still maintaining the essential frequencies. Love this mic! I will be using it as my daily driver from now on.

This mic has a very clear tone. It easily attaches to the shock mount, with just a little squeaking while screwing it on. It comes with two useful built in features, a high pass filter and a -10 db reducer. These are both very useful for blocking out unwanted background noise to only record the target audio. As far as studio condensers go, it is relatively cheap, but it does not sacrifice any quality.

It captures the sound in a peculiar way, with special sensitivity in the higher frequencies, which gives a pleasant brightness to vocals without overemphasizing the "S". Aesthetically, it's an elegant microphone, it's practical due to its size. The shock mount seems to me of good build quality like the microphone itself. I've been testing it for 3 months and so far it has fullfilled my needs.

What I liked the most is the way it captures acoustic guitar strumming. For arpeggios, I think you should know how to place the microphone in a good position until you find the tone that you want to capture from your guitar, but in terms of simple strumming it is very easy to obtain a great result. Due to the special way of capturing the treble that has this mic, the guitar strums manage to get a nice presence in the mix.

The Stellar X3 has its High Pass Filter and -10dB Pad toggles built in so it's very helpful when I record loud instruments like violin or drum that all I need to do is adjusting these directly on the mic.
I have used the mic to record 2 songs for my band and it picks up very natural sound from the acoustic instruments.
The shock mount holds and stabilizes the mic really well. It filters most of the unexpected sound when I accidentally hit the stand or cables.

The sound quality is really nice and reasonable price.
This mic include a holder and a case.
So you can use it soon.
Sometimes it is hard to turn the screw, but it is not a big deal.

I purchased the TZ Stellar X3 microphone in 2023, and the overall experience has left a lasting impression on me. Firstly, the microphone comes packaged in an exquisite box and includes a shock mount, showcasing the manufacturer's attention to detail.

I chose to connect the microphone to my Audient id14 and iMac, and the installation process was seamless without any issues. This setup allowed me to fully unleash the microphone's performance.

During testing, I specifically recorded my guitar using this microphone and was amazed by the clear and melodious sound it captured. In comparison to my previous microphones, I find this one to offer exceptional value for money.

In summary, the TZ Stellar X3 has delivered outstanding recording results and represents excellent value for money. Without hesitation, I highly recommend this microphone as an essential audio tool.

This was an upgrade from my basic mic, and I have been using this new one to make videos with professional voice overs for a couple months now. My old dynamic mic was so much quieter than this condenser mic, and it makes everything easier in order to record & stream. Just know, it is pretty sensitive (like all condenser mics) so it will pick up more room tone and more echoes from your room. I needed to hang a few blankets in my room (or make my setup more professional) to get it sounding good after compression and audio post-production. It sounds great when in the proper space, though. Super awesome mic and highly recommend from a creator!

I've been using this mic for a while now and it's been very satisfying to work with. It compliments my voice a lot, making it less muddy. I have less problem when I try to do fry screaming as I don't clip as much anymore. I also used this microphone to live stream and it doesn't have any problem. I sounded very clear and again, this microphone really compliments my voice really well, it gives it that warmer tone, rather than sharpness.

Great sound, my new primary microphone for my YouTube channel voice overs. I use it and record directly into the post-production video editing application. A phantom power source of 48v is required. I have gotten feedback that the voice over sound has improved and I can definitely tell the difference. My older videos have a lot of background hum and buzz. It's no longer a problem with the new microphone. Cheers!

I have been absolutely blown away by the Stellar X3 microphone! As a content creator I've been on the hunt for a reliable, high-quality microphone that doesn't break the bank. The X3 not only meets but exceeds all my expectations.

This is simply the best microphone I Ever owned in my life. if you can afford to buy this microphone. DO IT. why pay a $1000 for a micro when you can spend $350 for the same quality! when i was looking to buy a new mic. i looked at so many. my first mistake was buying the RODE NT1 bundle.. worst decision. but after my refund i bought this for the same price as that bundle. its worth it. plain and simple.

This is my first large diaphragm condenser microphone, and so far I have no complaints. It doesn’t really pick up much background noise and the resulting audio feels pretty similar to what was inputted. I’m unable to compare it to similar microphones, but for the price it seems good.

What I like most about this headset is that it can pickup your voice very clearly from larger distances. This is usually my main problem with microphones - normally I need to speak directly in the microphone to have the best quality of recording. With this microphone I was able to position it further away from my face and play with the settings to make the recording perfect. This is especially important for me because I use it to record YT videos, and I can't hold the microphone close to my face. TZ Stellar X3 really solved the issue that I've had for years and now I have incredible audio quality in my videos.

I actually used this microphone to compose two songs and use them for recording.

First of all, I was really surprised by this natural sound quality and realistic sound. There is no big gap between the sound I hear when I play and the sound recorded with this microphone. I think this is really great. Many musicians, like me, want a natural, uncolored sound when recording in order to clean up plug-ins such as preamps later.

In that respect, this microphone is really great. If you're looking for a good microphone, I highly recommend the Stellar X3. There are other songs on my YouTube channel that use this microphone, so be sure to check them out.

So far I tested this mic on a classical guitar and it did more than fine. It has a balanced sound although rather on the warm side. The construction itself seems to be quite solid and looks like it could survive a lot, although of course still better to be gentle with large diaphragms. The case that it comes with, on the other hand, seems to be a little clunky, but it does its job, it's a nice addition anyway. Overall a very good item for that price range. Attached video recorded without the in-built highpass filter, with slightly boosted mid-highs and a touch of reverb added in Logic Pro.

Really impressive! very flat sound, low noise, sensitive , We used this microphone in our flute online lessons and it created an amazing sound, the -10dB Pad allowed us to focus on recording the content without worrying about pops, the large diaphragm characteristics sacrificed the dynamics but had perfect bass, we love this microphone!

Definitely one I would recommend if you're looking to upgrade beyond entry level audio gear and can't afford the higher ranged microphones.

I was using USB mic for recording a few years ago and I was impressed by this mic instantly after the first try. You can get a natural sound without any timbre adjustments, because classical musicians need to review how good or bad their practicing. Neutral sound also means there's plenty of room for mixing.
Plus the built-in functions are very useful when you need to record in a busy city.

I received this microphone from TZ Audio to test out. I wasn't paid to write this review. First thing I noticed when researching was the level of attention to detail paid to the manufacturing process of their microphones. I was shocked and inspired so I decided to give one a try. I've been very pleasantly surprised with the quality of the microphone and the level of detail I'm getting on both vocals and my violin. I liked it so much I kinda want to get another one for my studio. This sounds super good, maybe even better compared to the other products I have that are more expensive by brands like Shure and AKG. Very happy and look forward to many tracks benefiting from this piece of gear.x

I'm a drummer and I used it as a quick mic solution to pick up my entire drumkit. If you're on a budget it works great and you can see the sounds are quite balanced in the video I uploaded. There is no EQ used, just reverb and a bit of compression to bring out the ghost notes. 1 Mic alone allows me to do content with more ease and also sound better than if I were to use only my phone.

Upon receiving the mic, the build of the mic feels good. Very neutral, which I find lovely for recording vocals, flute or guitar. In this video, I had cut off the lows and highs since it was a more lofi-ish sound.
Was quite surprised at the good quality one can get from it at this price. Have replaced my other condenser mic and now act as my main mic for recording!

The Stellar X3 has a lot of warmth and a really nice low end that shines on rich instruments like saxophone and acoustic guitar. It is not as bright as some other condenser mics and you may want to boost some high frequencies with EQ or add saturation if you want more clarity and bite.
Build quality is on par with other microphones in the mid price range ($200-600) and the shockmount is solid as well. If you are looking for something with a warm and full sound it makes for a good pick.

As can be seen and heard in my video review , the microphone sounds great! A very flat frequency response with just a little bump between 5 kHz to 10 kHz.
Very low noise floor level. And still have a -10 db attenuation and Lo-cut switch.

So far the Stellar X3 has gotten a great sound on all of these instruments. I'm also really happy with the price. Nowadays, you don't have to spend over $400 on a good condenser mic. Recommended!

Since I play mostly classical music, I love Stellar X3 because it records the natural sounds and is very close to reality compared to what I listen through my ears.
Also, the High Pass Filter and -10dB Pad helped me a lot when I needed to record loud instruments like Violin.
Stellar X3 was delivered in a very nice package with a hard case. The shock mount works really well, too.
