In my experience, this characteristic extends to the uniformity of the frequency response, transient response, and level—meaning that if you have vocalists or speakers in front and to the sides yet within the coverage pattern, they will sound like they are right in front of the mic.
CHURCH PRODUCTION MAGAZINE
I have been doing sound for over 40 years and I didn’t think there was any product out there that could make this kind of difference.
Mark Leonard, GREEN ACRES BAPTIST CHURCH
We’ve gone from a smear of a concert sound, to being able to hear the words and having such clear sound it’s amazing. The intelligibility is beyond compare!
TECHNOLOGIES FOR WORSHIP MAGAZINE
The Earthworks microphones give us a much more consistent response with respect to the acoustic source. Whatever sound you pick up with that microphone, it is going to sound very natural coming out.
Chris Chavanu, ELECTRONIC CONTRACTING COMPANY
