I tested this against the Sony ECM-MS2, AT8010, and AT875R, by connecting and gaining all to a similar level on a DR-701D. Granted these all have their own use cases, this mic just swept the floor with the others in sound quality. Deeper, richer bass, more clarity, and greater sensitivity.

I really love this mic. It has a great frequency range. I tested it against 3 other mics I had, and it blew them away. The bass pickup was much better on this one too. I first used it in a wedding with an FS7, and the recording sounded as good as using the direct output from the soundboard.

I primarily use this mic for field recording, and it does quite a good job! It captures a very clear, life-like sound. Highly recommended if you want to do some outdoors recording.

We use this microphone on our Sony PDW-F800 camera - it's incredibly clean sounding and rich. Two things I'd like to see different though. The first is that the switches are very exposed.
