Which Is the Best VO Mic? - The Pro Tools Expert Voiceover Microphone Shoot Out Blind Listening Test - Part 2

12-16-2014 10:03 AM

Following on from our previous post on how and why we are doing our Pro Tools Expert VO Mic shoot out (including the signal path) here is the second part of our blind listening tests. If you missed the first set of mics then you can find them here.
As before, we are using the Neumann U87 as the named reference mic for each batch of listening tests because it is one of the most used voice over microphones in the industry and so, familiar to most people.
For each microphone there is an example of male and female voice for you to listen to and compare with the U87. We would like to know which you prefer and why. Please vote and continue to let us know what you think.
We will be covering the other mics in subsequent listening tests.

Thank you again to Andrew Bickenell and Posy Brewer our professional voice artists for their dulcet tones and to Nigel Woodford of Richmond Film Services for the loan of the microphones for the test.
