There probably is something in some of the expensive mics, but does it make it a difference. Not enough for most things, even if it does.

Plenty of artists use mics in the 100 - 200 range for recording.

And live..... they still use Shure stuff - you see it all the time.

Getting the right mic suited for a purpose is important but certainly doesn't have to be expensive.

For vocals, studios like to put the mic through some hardare to warm it up. Then they spend the rest of the time trying to make it sound fake - for some reason.

To me, you need a mic to get the sound onto tape in its best condition, be accurate and able to pick up every aspect of the sound and reasonably priced mics do this with ease.
