DVEStore has posted a mic sound comparison for a bunch of shotgun, handheld and lav mics. It’s a useful comparison, but it’s also an informative lesson on what each type of microphone is capable of, and why you might use one type vs another. Watch below.

    Nice job. Love to hear the mics. Article title is a bit misleading. Wish you listed the mics in text so I don’t have to keep going back to find the make and models so I can look them up.

    Peace,
