A blind microphone comparison

Published on ; updated on

Like many other podcasters, I like obsessing over different microphones and watching mic reviews. Unfortunately, most of these reviews are not blind, and so your impression is inevitably affected by how the microphone looks, what its price is, opinions you’ve heard about the mic etc.

So here’s a blind test of the three microphones that I currently own. Feel free to tell me both your subjective (which one you liked more) and objective (what type/price range/model you think these are) thoughts, and I’ll tell you what these microphones are.
