Well 1st off I was a little skepticle buying these but after a buddy of mine told me to get them as well as reading the other reviews I had to try them out. I purchased 3 of these and WOW was I surprised. I own already Shure and AudioTechnica Condenser mics very similar to these oh and Audix too and these CAD's were a 10th of the price and sounded just as good if not had better pick-up than my expensive mics. I couldn't believe it! They come with their own feux leather pouch and their own clip too which was nice but again, these baby's came out on top. My Audix and AudioTechnica's were overhead micing an 40 piece choir and I tried the 3 new CAD's on an 80 piece orchestra. OH MY GOD! the pick-up was absolutely perfect and not only did it pickup instruments 30 feet away it also picked up the surrounding instruments perfectly especially the way I strategically placed them. You can use these CAD's pretty much anywhere but be careful, they are VERY sensitive meaning they have the BEST pickup I have EVER seen AND used. Also, I EQ'd one of them specifically 25 feet away from the drum section and got so much bottom end I was blown away. I got compliments on the best it ever sounded, AND AND AND this gig was OUTDOORS so you know the challenges I was faced with AND it was a windy day (these mics come with a little wind booty too which was awesome). So my challenges went away specifically because of using these mics. I'm rating this very high but for the Manufacturer Support I'm going read more to rate in the middle because I havn't needed them thank god! Have to say the best I EVER used!!! Get yours today!
