Mic Shootout Nady RSM4, Rode NT1A, MXL Silicon Valve, Zoom H2


Michael W. Dean of the Freedom Feens does a Microphone Shootout Nady RSM4, Rode NT1A, MXL Silicon Valve, Zoom H2, comparing ribbon microphones in a side-by-side test with condenser microphones and a Zoom H2, using male and female voices.

Note: there is a VERY very slight “ringing” sound in a few spots, it’s not in the original audio, it’s an artifact of YouTube’s compression.

With the Nady, in this test I didn’t add any EQ. Check out this podcast where I added a tiny bit of treble on the mixer. It’s literally the best-sounding podcast episode I’ve ever heard:


FREEDOM FEENS Podcast – Michael W. Dean and Neema Vedadi’s fun ‘n’ feisty weekly chat about Constitutional, libertarian, voluntaryist, minarchist and anarchist issues, abuse of authority by police, the War on Drugs, self-defense, States’ Rights, Natural Rights, Austrian Economics, DIY art, low-budget filmmaking, digital recording, activism, punk rock, hip-hop and more.
