Tascam TM-2X is a budget DSLR/Mirrorless camera external microphone that is similar to Rode VideomicPro and Videomic Go, except it is placed in between those Rode’s offerings. It can be a considered a semi-pro microphone with that price range and its proclaimed sound quality that should deliver clean sound. Now, let’s find out if it really is as good as Tascam claimed.
Binaural microphones have been around for perhaps decades. However, most of them require the use of a dummy head and some extra accessories, which make them bulky, expensive and not really accessible to the public. That is, until recently, when audio companies started to introduce a minimalistic (and dare I say, fashionable)binaural microphone at a surprisingly reasonable price. One of them is Roland, who releases CS-10EM, a microphone that performs well over its price tag.
