Apparently the Tula Mic is the only microphone you’ll ever need for content creation. How does the Tula mobile recorder compare to other USB-C mics?

Is the Tula Mic the best portable recorder for musicians? Check out this video review and see. The mic is advertised as an all-rounder mic suitable for podcasters, YouTubers, interviewers, voiceover work – you name it.

The USB-C mic and portable recorder packs a lot into a small, retro-style frame available in red, black, cream and seafoam blue. It’s immediately versatile – you can use the internal memory and playback, plug it into your phone or tablet, or use the Tula Mic with your computer.

This unboxing video by Synchedin covers all you need to know about the technical specs of this stylish little mic and its special features, giving you a taster of the microphone’s performance.

The most important bit first – how does the mic sound? Compared to similar USB mics, the Tula has a full, clear-sounding low end without sounding boomy, and a high end that’s pleasant and bright. The frequency range makes for crystal-clear vocals, and recordings are in high-quality .wav format.

The Tula Mic is compact enough to take with you wherever, for whatever you’re due to record. It boasts a long battery life, lasting for 12 hours, with a very reasonable 8GB of internal storage.

Features include noise cancellation and remote recording, with a frequency range of 50Hz to 20kHz. A built-in noise reduction algorithm, engineered by Tula and Klevgrand, pushes the mic’s performance into a higher tier.

The Tula Mic has both cardioid and omnidirectional polar patterns – use the bottom button on the side to switch between the two. That’s so when you’re recording a heated podcast debate or a band practice you can hit the omnidirectional option to capture everyone’s contribution.  

Controls on the side of the little mic let you listen back and scroll through multiple recordings without the hassle of plugging into a device. Watch the LED lights for your peaking levels – the lights also show which recording mode you’re in, and if storage is filling up.   

In conclusion, the Tula Mic looks and sounds great, with pluses like the long battery life and noise reduction giving it an edge over similar USB-C portable microphones.
