1. Our microphone clinic was a success with over 25
mikes tested. I haven't seen the other results, but my own tests showed dramatic
differences between mikes. Low frequency response at 80 Hz varied +/- 10 dB between
mikes for a range of 20 dB, noise floor ranged 21 dB, proximity effect 16 dB,
and sensitivity to mechanical shock 51 dB! No wonder mikes sound different.
