Vocal Mic Shootout

Hear 50 Vocal Mics Side by Side

The best way to compare mics is by hearing them! That's why we collected 50 large-diaphragm condenser mics in Sweetwater's Studio A and recorded female and male vocals through each under carefully controlled conditions. (See photos and read the technical details.) You can hear previews below (320K MP3), but for best results, download the full-resolution files (link below) and listen in your studio.
