Here is a comparison test indoors with the Audix scx1 hc vs Rode NTG 3. When I was looking for a microphone for indoor dialogue I came across the Audix. There were great reviews but really not many audio tests. Both mics were set to 0 db with the limiter on my C100 set to on. Both mics were recorded with the volume set to 5 on the C100. I did not remove any noise and what you hear is what you get. Both microphones were set at the same distance from the talent (roughly 12 inches). The setting is a open room with no couches, I really wanted to see how well the Audix would perform and to see if it would record the reflection bounce. The room is full of tile as well. Rode is a great microphone but I think I will use it outside and keep my Audix with me inside.
The Audix sch1 hc has a hypercardioid polar pattern. The Rode NTG-3 has a line-gradient supercardioid polar pattern. Microphones that are Hypercardioid work best when you are recording dialogue indoors.
