Probably not, although I'm no expert on MXL's mic lineup. Looking at specs they're cut from similar cloth. Your next upgrade should be a more significant step up, like to a Rode or something comparably "entry level production" caliber. These MXLs are okay for casual voice recording, but not intended for serious home recording/music production. They *can* be used for that, but you'll bump up against their limitations rather quick versus something intended for the purpose of detailed voice recording.
