The microphone market is so wide and varied that pitching all the best new models against each other would be problematic to say the least, so this year, we're introducing the inaugural MusicRadar Microphone Brand of the Year Award.
Run in conjunction with the UK's Music Industries Associaton (MIA), this award is designed to celebrate the best in performance, quality, value for money and retail success. Our shortlist of microphone brands was compiled by the MusicRadar team and the MIA's members, and recognises the companies who've had the biggest impact on the mic market over the past 12 months.
Tell us who you think should win the MusicRadar Microphone Brand of the Year Award 2015 by voting in the poll below.
