MIC WARS | Zoom H6 M/S Mic vs. Large Diaphragm Condenser Mic

MIC WARS | Zoom H6 M/S Microphone vs. Behringer B-2 Pro

MIC WARS! The Zoom H6 MS vs. the Behringer B-2 Pro! 

The Zoom H6 is a self-contained recorder, but you can also use it as a USB microphone and an audio interface. The Mid-Side condenser mic capsule will be used for this video, and the sides are turned off. 

The Behringer B-2 Pro is a large diaphragm condenser microphone with a frequency response of 20Hz-20KHz. It is an XLR microphone, and requires phantom power.  

We will test these microphones on voice for applications such as podcasts, voice-over, YouTube videos, etc… 

You will hear several samples from different distances. There are raw samples and processed samples. The processed samples use iZotope Nectar 2.

The Behringer B-2 Pro is a true large diaphragm condenser microphone, meaning you can really take advantage of the proximity effect to make your voice sound large and powerful. 

The Behringer B-2 Pro has a frequency response of 20Hz-20KHz
