sE Electronics DCM6 Broadcast Dynamic Mic Review / Test (vs. SM7b, RE20, PodMic, XM8500)

Today I review a new budget broadcast dynamic mic, the sE Electronics DCM 3 and DCM 6. The DCM 3 is pretty comparable to other $100 “broadcast” dynamics, but the DCM6 has a built in mic activator which makes it louder than a condenser!
