Perfect for countless applications, the Perception line is the "secret weapon" of thousands of studios worldwide. Here are a few quotes from some satisfied customers:

    Perception Series - Market Reaction

    "I do radio voice overs and I can tell you that after using a $1,000 Neumann, a $650 Shure and a $1,200 Sennheiser, this mic sounds better than any of those.

    I bought this mic a few weeks ago and have used it for recording vocals and acoustic guitar. The results from this mic were unbelievable for the price! The vocals were clear and warm-sounding. The guitar had a live feel to it.

    I own a pair of these mics and have used them to record everything from drums to choirs and they have delivered a very clear and clean sound with awesome detail.

    This is the best buy in an inexpensive condenser mic. So far, I have only used it for vocals and it delivers a warm, transparent sound that I have found lacking in other mics in this price range.

    I was just blown away by its clarity and presence - It has that sound that mics a few times its price would have."
