I bought this for mid-side field recording, but it's proved useful in other applications. I was working on a radio drama, and most of the scenes had two actors talking to each other. It was a really convenient, lightweight solution for recording two actors speaking while facing one another.
Awesome for M/S setups. Super quiet and durable, with good wind protection can be used anywhere.
I'm going to start by getting the biggest elephant in the room out of the way: it's a bi-directional mic, and thus it's day-to-day function is extremely limited for almost all recording purposes.
I used these mics recently (2 MKH 30s) in a Faulkner array to record an a cappella choral program. I used minimal electronics and minimal DSP. These mics delivered an accurate, musical, and glorious sound. It is an extremely high quality product.
