In this corner we have the Audio-Technica ATR3350is. A clip-on lavalier mic. It is an omnidirectional condenser microphone and requires a battery. It also requires a good amount of gain to function properly. It has a frequency response of 50Hz to 18KHz and a price tag of $29.
In this corner is the legendary Shure SM7b. You have seen and heard this mic on countless podcasts, radio shows, voice overs, hit songs and more. It is a dynamic microphone and therefore does not require phantom power. The SM7B requires a minimum of 60db of gain! So make sure you have a proper preamp in your studio. We will be using a Cloudlifter CL-2. The SHURE SM7B has a frequency response of 50Hz to 20KHz and a price tag of $399.
