Podcasters love to geek-out about podcasting gear. So here’s a blind test with four popular podcasting microphones.
Each microphone is a studio dynamic microphone connected via XLR to a Behringer X1832USB mixer. The preamp and EQ settings is identical. Each recording has been adjusted only to -19 LUFS and limited to -1 dBTP, but is otherwise raw (no EQ, no compression, no noise gate). These samples were recorded into Adobe Audition via a Behringer U-Control USB audio interface.
The following samples are in uncompressed WAV (and thus may be slow to start playback).
Guess and vote!
