Earthworks Demo Recordings Methodology

The Earthworks microphone demo recordings compare Earthworks microphones to popular microphones of other manufacturers.

For these recorded comparisons, each microphone is placed in the same position utilizing the same gain channels with no EQ or signal processing. All you will hear is the unaltered characteristics of the microphones.

There is information provided regarding each set of recordings, including identification of the sequence, and there is a short blank space between the comparative recordings to easily identify each.

Note: These recordings are WAV files and may require more download time. The massive amount of compression in MP3 and MP4 files will not reveal the discernible audible differences.
