“In my experience, this characteristic extends to the uniformity of the frequency response, transient response, and level—meaning that if you have vocalists or speakers in front and to the sides yet within the coverage pattern, they will sound like they are right in front of the mic.”

I have been doing sound for over 40 years and I didn’t think there was any product out there that could make this kind of difference. I never believed that I could get this amount of gain and intelligibility with my choir.

Move the mics even closer for additional gain before feedback, and those three mics could well replace 10 or more conventional ones.

The Earthworks microphones give us a much more consistent response with respect to the acoustic source. Whatever sound you pick up with that microphone, it is going to sound very natural coming out.
