Here's an interesting very brief head-to head comparison of two mics, one priced around $100 and one at $1200. Listen and ask yourself if the more expensive mic sounds twelve times as good, or even twice as good.

To my earlier point, I find the difference hardly noticeable in the home test. It is noticeable in the production room test, but good lord, twelve times the price? Not for me.

Admittedly this tester is a speech guy, not a musician, and you are listening to an mp3, but the comparison is still instructive.
