Remember... that selecting a voice over microphone is very personal... and all the microphone reviews are just personal opinions and observations... the type of voice you have... the microphone pre amp, the room acoustics, the analog to digital converters... sound card.. mixing board, monitor speakers, headphones... blah blah blah all factor in the final sound that you may be looking for... Before buying ANY microphone... ask to try before you buy first!!!!... These voice over microphones listed below are the ones that I recommend... remember its NOT about price... its all about how YOU want to sound! Any of these voice over microphones will work...

Paired up with the Avalon VT-737sp the Neumann U87 will take your voice overs to the next level.... or you can mod your U87 with the InnerTUBE Audio U87 RetroFit kit that will convert your U87 into a U87 tube microphone.. recomend using NOS E88CC NOS Mullard Tube (Holland)....The Innertube U87 RetroFit adds a sonic dimension and clarity that to us sounds even better than the stock U87....Neumann U87 Innertube RetroFit ads a lot more bottom and much more open on top...much, much, "bigger" sonically than a stock 87 that will make your voice cut through...

Voice Talent USB Microphones that are Great to use as Podcasting Microphones are Blue Snowball USB Microphone, Rode Podcaster USB Microphone for Voice Overs. .MP3 Demos and .WAV Microphone Demos are always a good reference to compare mics... but the best and only true way to see if a Microphone is right for your voice is to take it home and try it out in your studio.

Condenser Microphones have more detail, clarity and intimacy than Dynamic Microphones so are used more by Voice Talent Artists for voiceover recording. Condenser Microphones are much more sensitive so an acoustically treated room may sometimes be required. Condenser microphones use a 48v phantom power source as Dynamic Microphones do not. Dynamic Microphones are studio workhorses and more tolerant to climate and humidity and generally do not sound as good as Condenser Microphones. Bottom line... use whatever gets the voice over work done and in your budget.

Whether or not high end Voice Talent Microphone is "worth it" to you is a question only you can answer. Certainly it depends to a great degree on the type of work that you do and on your budget. Remember go to your local dealer and do as much microphone demos as you can. Some voice may sound better on less expensive mics. Remember Voice Talent is what it says it is...TALENT.. So no matter how expensive a microphone is in my opinion 60% is coming from the Voice Over Actor the other 40% is the equipment:) Research Research Research! and remember just because someone says it with conviction don't make it true. It's all opinion in the Voice Talent game.. So do what works for you.
