I recommend microphones to radio and Internet broadcasters. The industry standard mics are the EV RE20, the Shure SM7B, and the Heil PR40. There is increasing interest lately in the MD441, which is probably one of the best dynamic microphones ever made.
Has anyone here played with a BCM 705? I'm a die hard Neumann fan, but the applications for which I consult are best served with dynamic mics. Would it be worthwhile to get an evaluation unit from a dealer? Are there any user reviews online that you can point me to?
