In the world of voice-overs, there are a few choices that are less subjective than others. I think most would agree, if finances are no issue, two safe bets would be:
|Sennheiser MKH 416|
|Neumann TLM 103|
And of course, there's one of my personal favorites.
I recently moved into a new home studio setting, one that provides a little more working room. I found one of my first microphones, the AKG Perception 220, that had been tucked away in a closet. Maybe for sentimental reasons, I decided to give it another whirl. Still sounds good, still remains one of my favorite budget microphones and will now remain outside of the closet.
