Vocal Mic Roundup

We take a look at four of our best-selling dynamic handheld microphones that you can buy for around $100. Each microphone was recorded directly into a Roland UA-1010 OCTA-CAPTURE Audio Interface with no additional microphone pre-amp in-line. Dynamic mics are self-powered and typically less-sensitive than their condenser counterparts. Now, all of these microphones are designed for live vocal performance but they can be found in studios around the world as well. They’re rugged, have low handling noise, and do a good job of rejecting unwanted sounds. The voice over descriptions for each mic was recorded on the actual microphone being described. This way you can get an idea of their tonal differences.
