Ok, I know I could search and probably find a million debates on this, but hoping someone can give me the broad strokes on a buying decision.
I currently run DPA 4021s and will continue to use these as my primary pair, but find myself recording in a less-than-ideal room (not bad, just not great) more often than not lately and want to see if hypers can help me out. I would likely still run the 4021s alongside the schoeps, because it's just hitting another button.
I've elected to look at Schoeps mics because I know they perform well and who knows, if the 4021s bite the dust, MK4's may be the replacement...
These will operate on a stand or in a hat, depending.
