if strictly vocals U87ai. If your doing any loud instruments/sounds or vocals then U87.(I always prefer the U87 but you need a pre that can stay quiet enough for dialogue)

I use the M149 a lot as well for Broadway stuff, but it is a pricier mic.

I know this is gearslutz and folks want answers about gear lust purchases. But have you considered that maybe you are putting the cart before the horse?

U89 or TLM170 are the voiceover mic standard over here since they don´t colour the signal too much.

My second career was an AFTRA VO guy. 1986-2004. I had built a home studio. I'm still running it, but the VO industry crashed for union talent about 2004.

U 89, C-414, U 87, MKH416 are pretty common.

These days, my "go to" is a U 89 or a Gefell M71 for VO.

For voice acting, a TLM 107 would serve you well.

Top VO rooms in LA use 416's, 414's and U-87's.
