Product Description

Harlan has partnered with Marshall Electronics to create the MXL VO: 1-A Signature Series microphone - THE Voice Over Microphone designed for voice over performers by a voice over performer.

The MXL VO: 1-A faithfully captures deep tones without sounding too heavy and has a silky smooth top end that is never harsh - a perfect sound palette for most male and female voice over performers. But Harlan always advises voice talent to "audition" a microphone before deciding it's their mic of choice so the VO: 1-A is sold with a 30 day no-questions-asked 'try & return' full refund policy. The Voice Over Microphone has a three year factory warranty, state of the art class A circuitry, balanced/transformerless output, and a gold sputtered diaphragm.

The VO: 1-A package comes with hard shell case, shock mount, mxl cable, quick clip mount, fleece lined vinyl pouch and two replacement mount elastics.

The Voice Over Microphone made for Voice Over Performers - Harlan Hogan's VO: 1-A.

I've done voiceovers for over 20 years. I am quickly coming to the conclusion that microphones have entered the same realm as high end audio. People will spend thousands of dollars for a minscule, perhaps even inaudible improvement. On most voices I have tested this mic creates better results than a U87 - and yes I've done direct comparisons. It's just accurate and pleasant, especially on rich, baritone voices. I use a MicPort Pro and audition 3, and the result will generally surpass my Avalon and Firewire 610. I found that slightly irritating at first, but what I want is a result, not a listing of expensive pieces of equipment. Plus, simpler is better. It's hard to see how anyone could go wrong with this product. Well done.

I bought this Harlan Hogan VO-1A based on the many positive reviews on several websites. When it arrived and was connected to the console it did not work and just produced lots of noise. I took it to a microphone technician here in the Netherlands who detected the problem after two minutes. The leads from the capsule were not soldered to the print. This was repaired for free and the microphone worked now, though I think the noise level was pretty high. Fine details got completely lost in the noise. This was really contradictionary to all the reviews I have read, so I ordered a second microphone. That arrived in good order and worked from the beginning flawlessly producing much less noise than the previous VO-1A. Now it was time to make some comparisons. I compared the VO-1A with Neumann TLM 103, Neumann UA 87,and Rode K2 with use of pre-amp Avalon 737sp and Apogee ensemble and a second comparitive set-up with the Microport Pro directly connected to my Mac's USB port. In both cases voice-over recordings were made at 96Khz / 24 bit in Logic Pro 9. Both Avalon and Microport were warmed up for one hour before use, while each microphone was warmed up for half an hour before recordings were made.

The sound files were given random numbers and were judged by a panel of 8 people with the assignment to make a ranking order. Ranking results as follows:

Avalon session: VO-1A (unanimously), UA87, K2 TLM 103

MicroPort Pro session: UA 87, K2, VO-1A, TLM 103.

I think that the VO-1A microphone we've tested is worth while the money and holds up against microphones with much higher prices. Though I in my opinion that also the noise level of the second VO-1A was still masking the finest details, but that has a kind of flattering/warming effect at the same time.

I record voice overs in Spanish and this microphone gives my voice a special warmth and sharpness I've not heard with other more expensive mics. If you are looking for a good microphone, this one will give you great quality and the best bang for your buck. Now, if you use the MicPort Pro USB, see that you have the phantom power on. One day my mic suddenly stopped working and I couldn't figure out what was happening; I finally decided to write Harlan Hogan and he replied within 5 minutes telling me: "If it's defective we'll get you a new one, but make sure the phantom power on your Mic Port Pro is on! It's a tiny push button and glows orange - dynamic mics don't need phantom power but the VO: 1-a does". That was the problem! I was relieved and happy, not only because I got my mic back to record an important audition, but also because Harlan's customer service was awesome! Thank you Harlan!

This Mic is Outstanding! It sounds the same if not better than the Mic used in my voice over agents studio, and other studios that I have been in. Whats amazing is that I don't even have it running through a super expensive interface or pre-amp i am using the Mic Port Pro.

I had a 6 channel board and a starter condenser Mic prior to the VO 1A. This microphone has taken me from beginner to professional voice over sound over night. The warmth is incredible yet it still has just the right mids and highs. The whip cream on top is the customer service. I recently had my Mic fall off a stand which was over 5ft off the floor at least. The mic still worked fine but the top screen was bent slightly. I emailed Harlan and Terri Lee. They got back to me within minutes. They contacted the manufacturer and got them to replace the screen that had dented for free!

Outstanding!

Customer service was incredible. The mic is more than I hoped for. I have a AT2020 and Rhode NT1A both of which I like. Harland has made a mic that really gives my already resonant voice more character and I love the sound. It comes with all the accessories, decent case. I am totally pleased. Most of my work involves voice over for my web multimedia clients and I notice a big difference with this mic. LOVE IT!

Since adding a Porta-Booth to my voice-over set up, I've been booking one out of every three auditions I submit. Now, with the addition of the VO:1-A, my recordings are not only quieter, but my voice has a richer and mellower sound, without any vocal tricks on my part. I was hesitant to lay out nearly $300 on a mic but this one was definitely worth it. I had tried the Yeti, but the results could't compare to the rich sound of the VO:1-A. I also bought the external USB adapter but, for the moment, I am running the mic directly into my multitrack recorder. If you're doing voice-over work, get this mic and the Porta-Booth and you've got the perfect combination for great sound. And, no, I don't work for Harlan Hogan.
