One question that we often get asked is, which microphone is best for me? The short answer is, it depends. There are ideals, but then there's also other factors that need to be taken into consideration.
Typically, this is a fairly detailed discussion with our clients where we need to establish what is important to them. Some of these factors are performance, aesthetics, location, coverage, flexibility and of course cost.
It's quite difficult to discuss the different performance of microphones, there's nothing better than hearing it for yourself.
