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.
And in this corner we have the Behringer B2 Pro, one of the most popular condenser microphones around. This mic features a large diaphragm which can really accentuate the proximity effect. The B2 Pro can be used on almost any source from vocals to instruments, voice over to overhead. The B2 Pro is a condenser microphone and therefore requires phantom power. It has a frequency response of 20Hz to 20KHz and a price tag of $149.
