Sample Audio Quality

Not all microphones are created equal.

Just in case you were wondering what your audio sounds like recording using what you have, you know, lying around, here you go.

  1. UR Headphones. These are high-quality headphones that put out great sound. They just don't record so well.
  2. Apple Wired Earbuds. I use these all the time for recording. But we shouldn't be doing audiobooks with them. For a podcast? They're OK.
  3. Apple iPhone. This sounds better than you think. Not terrible ... in an emergency.
  4. ATR 2100. If you can shell out the $74, here's why.

I'm no audio professional, but I can hear the difference. Can you?
