Not much. But there's more to microphone quality than frequency response. 1. Plosives. Will the mic handle poppy 'p' sounds without overloading? 2. Directionality. Is it directional? If not, you'll get more shack reverberation, fan noise and reflections from the desk (causing comb filter notches in the response). 3. Proximity effect. Will the mic increase LF as you get closer to it? If it's directional, yes it will, unless it's one of the Electro-Voice Variable-D types or similar. Omnis don't have proximity effect. 4. Handling noise. If hand-held, how much unwanted noise is generated as you move around? 5. Screening. Is it adequately screened? If not, it may be more prone to RF feedback. 73, Richard G4DYA ______________________________________________________________ Elecraft mailing list Home: http://mailman.qth.net/mailman/listinfo/elecraft Help: http://mailman.qth.net/mmfaq.htm Post: mailto:Elecraft@mailman.qth.net This list hosted by: http://www.qsl.net Please help support this email list: http://www.qsl.net/donate.html Message delivered to arch...@mail-archive.com
