ZP -VS SAMPLES
The ZP800G is no physical clone of the well famous Sony C800G but its pure sonic footprint and audio quality plus timbre are identical.
There are specific qualities that makes the Sony and ZP microphones stand out in the mixing process that excels the mic for vocal tasks .
The ZP Capsule response in cardioid is the same as the Sony C800G in OMNI , because omni is the most suited for vocals without the extra proximus effect and bass build up , but not always ideal for recording places with to much room ambiance with the zp800g you get the best of both worlds.
This means you can get very close to the zp800g in cardioid and still there will be no bass build up or muddy lows and you get maximum room ambiance shielding.
IN THE RESPONSE GRAPH WE SEE:
in the frequency response from the ZP800G in cardioid. We can see A striking similarity especially the low and mids are extreme identical. The highs are also very similar and we can see they booth peak at minus +-6db but the ZP having A flatter still fuller and smoother response in the top. Without sticking out. You can also see in the Graph the ZP800G top roll-of is more smooth. This translates in the more open upfront silk sound.
When applying EQ and pushing the High frequencies the Sony can become sharp quite quick. Because of the flatter but fuller top end of the ZP800G this is no issue, resulting in the ZP needs no additional EQ fixes or de-essers to control the highs and still providing the same solid lows for your recording.
