Jarel Music: At4040 <3 just got this mic a month ago.. what interface you got??

010101Gaming: Man it seems like you own a lot of mics bro bro. What is the best mic you ever spit?uh huhu!

Shawna Love: First of all, thank so much. This is a great way to compare the mic's!!
My likes...
1st- AKG Warm, smooth, almost compressed sounding. Sounds warm and wonderful to my ears.
2nd- Bluebird (I feel the Bluebird mic is very similar the AT4040, but the Bluebird has warmer, smoother mids and the AT4040 has higher spiked mids and can sound tinny if set too hot.)
3rd- AT4040
Wayyy Dead Last is the Shure. Sounds thin and cheap to me. Shouldn't even be in the comparison.
I've owned a AT4040 for years. Only mic I have. I use for both vocals and acoustic guitar.
I was looking for some reviews on it and your video was great. Thanks again!

Badflar: I'm going to have to say at4040. Last two are crap. The first two are almost exactly the same but if you listen closely, you can hear that the at4040 is a bit more open.

KASHE Films: yo, i got that type of high pitched voice lil bit.. what mic could you recommend me? c214 or at4040?

rorro aguirre: Suena mejor el AKG C214

CIRCLE OF TONE.: Great shootout. Thanks.

Hideous Lyric: It's really between the AT4040 vs AKG C214.
The Shure SM7B clearly sounds like crap, and I feel like the Bluebird was too mid heavy. My vote would have to be with the C214, better bass response which goes better with his voice. The AT4040 does seem to sound a bit clearer, less muddy with bright crisp highs... But for a male voice, I'd go with the C214 and the AT4040 for a female.

jo sungbok: c214
