Large diaphragm condenser microphones are often used in recording studios for vocals and voice overs. But many consider them less practical for mobile or location recording. The Mikme Gold challenges that idea in an impressive way. The Mikme Gold is a portable, wireless, microphone and recorder. You can record to the Micme’s in-built memory. You can wirelessly record to your iPhone (and soon, Android phone), and you can also record to your computer when you connect via USB cable.
In addition to that, the Mikme sounds quite good - in my estimation, it rivals the sound of the AKG C414. That’a s recording studio staple microphone. Let’s have a closer look and a listen.
