Did a mic shootout at my local Sam Ash. Not very scientific, or in a quiet room, but a test none the less. All mics were recorded holding the mic about 4in away from the mouth, just straight into their Avid Pro Tools interface, recorded to PT10, 24bit/48khz. Mics were leveled out so that level variances didn't affect the way you heard the mic. I won't say what mics were used, I want this to be completely blind. Files are very short and of just the sales person talking, no wind screen was used so some of the p and b poke through a bit. All these mics were recorded with cardiod pattern, if some of the mics did or didn't have multi patterns.
