REVIEWS

REVIEWS

"The Vintage 11 sounds very natural — the highs are all present, but without clawing at your eardrums, as they seem to do with some mics. The output responds well to EQ, which is helped by the very low self‑noise"

PAUL WHITE
SOUND ON SOUND

"Natural sound quality, low noise, smart looks. The first thing of note is that the Vintage 11 is a very quiet mic, with little apparent in the way of self noise."

FUTURE MUSIC

"In reality, it is simply a very good, very well built, warm-sounding studio microphone with an attractive price tag. Someone who is operating on a budget looking for that hi-end studio sound should consider the V11."

THE MODERN VOCALIST

"Larger than life sound, very smooth sounding top end; great for voice-over work."

JON THORNTON
RESOLUTION

"The V11 is a really fresh offering. It's beautiful to look at, with a versatile sound and at $699 it's good value for money and that's a knockout combination. I have no problem suggesting this mic is punching well above it price point."

PAUL KENT

"Impressive sound quality, ultra-low noise floor and stylish looks."
