Audio Technica 8004L vs. Sennheiser MD 46 Long Handled Interview Microphones

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSThis video was created with no audio changes. The idea is for you to hear the raw version of each microphone and make your own decision. A few months ago, I compared this Audio Technica vs the SM58 and AT2100 microphones for use in interviews. I got a comment on the YouTube video from CapWKidd asking “What about the Sennheiser MD 46 microphone?” I turned around and tweeted SennheiserUSA, who actually got back to me within 24 hours. They sent me the MD46 long handle microphone. These are two different types of microphones that you can use for getting interviews, capturing speeches or podium announcements, and more. As always, I’ll review each microphone while talking through the microphone. For my receiver, I’ll be using my Sony UWPV6 wireless camera microphone capsule for each, as if I was at a live event....

Switching out Computer Heat Sink with Cooler Master Hyper T2

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSS About a month after setting up this new computer, my processor fan started sounding like a single prop airplane. I couldn’t record any video without that noise getting in the way. I tried several ways to pad, but it just made better sense to get a more powerful heat sink. Which is why I bought the Cooler-Master Hyper T2. Why didn’t I go liquid cool? I really didn’t want to have that hassle in my computer at this time.

The key takeaways: properly ground yourself turn on the computer for a few minutes to let the thermal paste warm up Generously apply Thermal Paste and...

The ZAGG Speaker Case is not only that, but also a backup battery that gives you up to 8 hours of charge. About the ZAGG Speaker Case The case itself is technically a bumper you put around the phone.

V-Moda Crossfade M-100, V-Moda XS Headphone Review

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSWhen it comes to headphones, we want functional and we want it to look good. Especially when you have an over-the-ear set of headphones. Portability is a key functionality in these types of headphones. That is where the V-Moda Crossfade M-100 comes in. Foldable, adaptable, comfortable. Those are three things I use to describe these headphones. If you owned the M-80 headphones, these are definitely a step up. So let’s look at the specs of this, and I also have a pair of the XS headphones. About the V-Moda Crossfade M-100 Headphones V-moda headphones have been a favorite for DJs for years.
