I've been using the Berliner Mics since November and they have been amazing.  I got them for fairly cheap as well as they were running a special when I bought them (I paid around 400 for the pair I think, maybe less).  The one thing that stands out the most for these mics is that they are not bass heavy as opposed to other mics.  Here is a comparison of the berliner and busman mics on the same stand -

Here are some of the recordings i've made with them-

Here are the Umphrey's sets i've recorded with them-

Each of those Umphrey's shows has multiple sources.  I think they hold up very well

this thread sure reads strange since about a dozen posts have been deleted over the years

I've taken the CM33s out a few times in the past month (Little Feat, WSP), a little different sound from the Beyer803s but still very listenable (not quite as much low-end as the Beyers) and quite enjoyable - the LF show should be up in a few weeks, WSP probably not but you never know

Oh yes, for sure.  I paid $400 for mine and they were marked off already.  Hell of a price for those

what?  I bought mine over a year ago and they were $400 marked off.  That $279 is a steal for these mics in my opinion.  You can probably find them fairly cheap now cause they were in the process of working on new mics.

While I have added other mics over the years, I still think these are great mics and I never hesitate to use them. I use them indoors mostly as they respond well in muddy conditions. They are a well kept secret as the company really never seems to have gotten off the ground.

Nice, I really liked mine but sold them to fund MBHO'S, I keep thinking I should grab another pair some day. Enjoy!

Exactly, I wasn't fond of them with my V2 but found them much better with the FP24. I bought them as a second set of beater mics to use with the FP but tried them with the V2 a couple of times for giggles. Great value & matched with the right preamp shoot well above their price range IMO.
