I do LOTS of VO out of my home studio and recently a friend has been trying to get me to switch from my AKG 414 to aNeumann U87. Curious if there are any techies in here with an opinion. Samples of my AKG can be heard on my website.
I love my sound, but he insists Neumann is richer. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

I listened to some samples on your website. You sound legit. In my opinion, you don’t need to change your set up. Are you able to rent the Neumann your friend is suggesting? Maybe you can try it out and do some comparisons on your own.

I agree with Rob – Your VO’s sound great. If you’re comfortable with your current setup and it is still producing high levels of quality, why change it?

I am a big fan of “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” The demos the I heard on your web site sound great.

Both the AKG C414 and Neumann U87 have been industry standards for years, and for good reason. They are different from each other, and infact the different models of C414 are quite different from each other, while the older U87 sounds a bit different from the new breed U87i. Any of them should however be fine for VO work though.
