Vocals
“…full range of his voice and the dynamics were there, along with the other vocal sounds, lip smacks, and so on that you would hear if you were sitting across from him at a table having a conversation…”
“…delivers an elegant, warmly realistic, complex and finely detailed vocal sound…”
“…excels at rejecting audio sources from behind the microphone…”
“…has the inherent quality and smooth top-end extension of a “studio” mic but one that is, by design, quite useful when placed a little closer to sources…”
“…I can pretty much say without any doubt that I have not heard a handheld condenser sound this good in my life….”
“…as close to a technically perfect live vocal mic as you’re likely to get…”
“…so transparent it lets the engineer enhance the channel EQ to suit the vocalist without having to ‘undo’ any mic-specific characteristics that don’t work in a situation….”
“The attention to design and manufacturing details makes this a superior microphone, and in the tests it lived up to its ambitious specifications.”
