    Thank you very much for that thorough comparison test! The NTG-3 is
    closer to the 416 than I thought it would be. Sounds like they aimed
    to create a budget version of the 416. I'd be curious to hear the
    Audix 1280 S in comparison for a super compact shotgun mic in the same
    price range.
    I am looking for a 416 alternative that can fit into a very small
    portable recording kit that I can build for my VO clients.

    Thanks for that Ty. After listening I went to your site to hear some of the
    other mics. You don't happen to have a Soundeluxe U195 still lying around
    that you could count to ten a few times into from about the same distance as
    the 416?

    It's one of those mics that keeps coming up in RAP but which I've never seen
    in a studio. I do VOs mostly.

    The Soundeluxe U195 is a winner. I used one several months ago. My friend
    and fellow VO guy, Harlan Hogan, has one. It has the punch of a 416 with a
    bit more airiness, as I recall. I was really knocked out by it. We were
    running it through an Avalon Vt 737. Very sweet.

    imo there is nothing funny about borat. riffing on people who are
    unaware is very selfish and unkind.
