sE Electronics V2 Review/Test (vs. SM58, E835, V7, XM8500)

HQ Audio Of Review:
Today i review the sE Electronics V2 Switch, a new budget dynamic mic that comes in at around $50. This thing has a great sound that is controlled in the lowend, forward in the upper mids but not overdone, and somewhat tame in the treble and air. The one big draw back to this in my opinion is the handling noise which is improved greatly on the sE V7 which is 2x the price.

Gain: ~3:30
Boosted in Post: +5dB
