I have a gaming headset (Razer Kraken) that has the following microphone specs:
Class: Electret Condenser Microphone (ECM)
Frequency response: 100 Hz - 10 kHz
Signal-to-noise ratio: 60 dB
Sensitivity: -45 +/- 3 dB
I've purchased a few "nicer" handheld/studio (not sure what the form factor is called) microphones (Sennheiser e835, SHURE SM58, etc.) and noticed that they don't make my voice sound as good as the headset's microphone–to my ears, anyway. The "nicer" mics make my voice sound too nasally while the cheaper boom mic (which is actually a premium mic in the gaming headset space) just works with my vocal tone. Therefore, can I locate a handheld/desktop/studio microphone that most closely resembles this boom mic's output based purely on its technical specs (like the ones above)? Or is this just a matter of trial and error because mics have their own "personalities" regardless of specs?
