TONOR Q9 USB Microphone Kit Review

Capturing audio can be tricky. If you want an easy to setup and use solution, you might want to consider the TONOR Q9 USB Microphone Kit.

The microphone itself is cardioid. So you’ll want to talk directly and generally close to the front face of the microphone. Thankfully it does come with a pop filter and foam mic cover. This will help block your puffs of air as you’re speaking. The suspension scissor arm stand allows you to rotate 360 degrees and lock the microphone in place. The metal shock mount holds the microphone as if it’s on a cloud. With it will be able to preventing any shocking noises if you nudge into your stand.

To connect your microphone to the computer the kit comes with a USB cord. You can also connect it to the Playstation 4, but not Xbox One.

For the price the audio sounds perfect. It captures a wide range and enough bass to satisfy most typical users. If for some reason you want a higher end microphone, you should be able to swap it on the arm, but depending on its width may need a different shock mount.

I do think this is a great kit for anyone who wants to quickly step up their audio quality.

RIP Microsoft Store Closure Retro Video Game Midnight Launch Memories Halo Call of Duty GTA V Gears of War 3

With Microsoft Store shutting down I wanted to take the time to highlight the fun that was had in 2011 and 2013 during various midnight launches including Battlefield 3, Gears of War 3, Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3, Halo Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition, GTA V, and Xbox One.

HÄNS Ultra-Clean

You’re probably not aware, but tech is dirty. Seriously when was the last time you cleaned your computer screen, smartphone, or gaming controller? Tech is no longer only in our home, but it’s also in our cars via the touchscreens. Everywhere we go, we touch dirty tech.

Meet HÄNS your tech superhero whose power is to super clean! The HÄNS Ultra-Clean wipe cloth literally wraps around the spray bottle and becomes a cape. The cover art is the HÄNS super hero battling an evil germ.

I had to capture this photo in panorama mode to see the battle. So ignore the jagged edges in the image.

Cuteness aside the cleaning solution is actually quite powerful. It has 2.5 times the amount of active ingredients as the leading disinfecting/sanitizing wipe. It does not contain oxidizers, ammonia, bleach, strong acids and strong alkali materials.

The cape’s material is also important too. Most cloths would soak up the majority of the solution and do little in the way of cleaning. You can feel safe knowing that when you spray the wipe it will transfer the cleaning solution onto the tech surface.

I used HÄNS Ultra-Clean on the touch screen of my Surface Studio 2 and boy does it look purty. I didn’t realize beforehand how dirty and full of gunk the screen was. Using HÄNS Ultra-Clean really makes you appreciate have clean tech.
