I’m auditioning four mics for our podcast Distributing the Future. I’ve uploaded four mp3’s and would love your opinion on the mics.
I’m looking for a mic to use in the studio and a mic to use in the field. What do you hear in these microphones that you do or do not like. There is no processing here so you will hear more room noise than you would in a finished piece of audio and I haven’t put any compression or equalizer on this.
I’ll post what each mic is in a couple of days but would like you to evaluate these without knowing what is what. These are all dynamic mics. Please provide your thoughts on the mics both from six inches and from three inches. Of course if you feel the need to post your thoughts on my voice or my read I can’t stop you, but this time I’m really interested in your thoughts on the mics.
The files are each around 500K and run thirty seconds.
What do you think?
