OliKMIA Posted September 9, 2019 Share Posted September 9, 2019 Hi, I just purchased a C200 for a documentary and I'm looking for a super/hypercardioid microphone to pair it with for indoor interviews. Basically, there are three categories of microphones: - Entry level ($100-$200): Samson C02 and Oktava MK-012 - Mid-range ($500): Audix SCX1/HC, Audio-Technica AT4053b, AKG CK93, Neumann KM 185 - High-end ($1200+): Sennheiser MKH 50 and Schoeps CMC6 MK41 I cannot justify the high-end microphone option after dropping big bucks for the C200 but I don't want to go on the cheap route neither because audio is often overlooked and bad audio rendering can ruin an entire project much faster than poor image quality. Therefore, I'm going to go for the mid-range option which is enough for my project. I'm inclined to get the AKG CK93 because I like this brand (great headsets) and the price is right ($460). This mic is also modular (the capsule can be switched to shotgun). But the other brands also seems fine. Question: do you have any feedback or experience with these microphones? (Audix SCX1/HC, Audio-Technica AT4053b, AKG CK93, Neumann KM 185). I would love to hear your experience, good or bad before getting one of those. Eventually, I'll probably try them (thanks to amazon return policy) and decide which one is right for me. Thanks in advance for your help. kye 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
