Lauten Audio LS-208 Broadcast Condenser Microphone Review / Test

Today I review the Lauten Audio LS208, an end address condenser microphone for podcasting and broadcasting. It offers impressive side and rear rejection (for a condenser), as well as multiple high pass and low pass filters to tailor the sound to fit your voice. The mic does tend to be a bit on the sibilant side, suffer from less than optimal plosive rejection, all while being a bit quiet for a condensers (-46dB sensitivity).
