I am the guest frequently on a fairly popular podcast about movies and games. In the studio, the host, Jeremy, uses a Shure SM7b. The Shure mic is considerably more expensive, but from sound tests that I've listened to, I don't hear a huge QUALITY difference, more a difference in the tone produced. The videos I've watched and listened to though don't distinguish which set up (bidirectional, cardioid, etc) they are using. ANYWAY, I am looking at starting my own channel of podcasts and streams, and I was wondering how any of you think the Seiren compares to the $350 Shure.
