I don't find spoken word mic test all that useful since I'm not looking to buy a mic for that application. That said, I do hear quite a bit of difference between the mics, most notably that the Spark sounds a bit more compressed than the MXL, and that the MXL seems to accentuate some high end artifacts that aren't all that pleasing to my ear.

But look... what "sounds good" is a subjective issue and, as I've said previously, our ultimate goals play a role in our decisions. In the end, you don't have to please me or anyone else, only yourself, so rock on, brother.
