3 Cheap Mics That Beat the Expensive Ones

I’ve worked with $10,000 mics and $50 mics, and I’ve spent a lot of money swapping out different microphones in my project studio. What I discovered is that although the expensive mics are a nice treat, there are more affordable alternatives that sound just as good (or better).

Here are 3 cheap studio mics that actually BEAT the more expensive alternatives:

1. Voice Mic Shure SM7B

2. Tom Mic Sennheiser E604

3. Small Diaphragm Condenser Shure SM81* (or Shure KSM137*)
