With its straightforward front-panel controls and 16-bit / 48 kHz resolution, the TASCAM TM-250U USB Type-C condenser microphone provides quality audio capture while offering easy, driver-free compatibility with Mac/Windows computers and iOS/Android mobile devices (USB Type-C and Lightning cables available separately), a simple solution for podcasters, vocalists, and narrators producing at home. Plus, its supercardioid polar pattern is effective at reducing ambience and background noise at the sides of the mic.

Since the TM-250U is bus powered, it needs no batteries, external power supply, or charging, making it well suited for mobile recording as well as home productions.

It includes a USB Type-C to USB Type-A cable, a mic holder, and a desktop stand for quick setup.

Lightweight and Versatile The TASCAM TM-250U was designed to deliver detailed audio straight to your computer via USB. Record voiceover or music directly to your recording software, use it for conferencing and meetings, create podcasts, stream live with clear vocal quality, and more. Universal Adaptivity The mic works via industry-standard USB Type-C connectors on Mac, Windows, iOS, Android, and Chrome OS platforms, with driverless functionality returning stream-optimized 16-bit / 48 kHz audio. Onboard Controls All necessary controls for the microphone are on the unit itself. Preamp gain and headphone volume knobs are on the front of the mic for convenient operation. A mic mute button gives additional flexibility for in-the-moment control of audio.
