Today I take a listen to the new RE320 from Electro Voice ($299). I put it up against my Sure SM58 ($99). I really like the clarity of this microphone. I love the fact that if I move my mouth around in front of the microphone it doesn’t change the tone of the microphone. With the SM58, the closer I get the bassier it gets. With the RE320, I could move my microphone in front of it, and the tone barely changed. As a musician I love the fact that it has a switch that makes it a great bass drum microphone, and as a vocal microphone it will also work great on guitar, horns, voice, etc.
I also talk about a podcast about a nursing company that is growing their community and brand awareness through podcast. Also a new Press release from Wizzard Media shows that people starting a podcast is up 26% over last year. The reason? Podcasting is going more main stream. In the past the top shows were much more about technology and “geeky” items. This is not the case anymore.
Final Poll Results: 33% SM58, 33% RE320, 33% not sure.
