What to do about the tinny sound?

Hey Everyone!

I'm new to the voice-over community and am in need of some advice. My recordings, while free of noises, come out tinny sounding. I'm using a self-made soundproofing desktop booth for noise blocking. My microphone is a Fifine K669 USB condenser mic. Is it the microphone itself or do I just need a muffler/microphone cover?


Please let me know your thoughts/advice.

Thanks!

    How far from the mic are you when recording?

    Most miss lose low end the further away you are.

    I would recommend a pop filter either way and try getting in tighter to the mic.

    A little post EQ may be the answer...

    I just listened to all your demos and first off, you sound great!

    Maybe a bit of post EQ to soften the "tinny" sound and you're all set.

    Thanks! All my demos were done in professional recording booths. I attached a recent recording I did with my home mic. I'll definitely check out the filters.
