I just got off the phone with soundpure and they will do a set for $2250.00.

Thanks for the investigating. I imagine other companies will start to cut their prices slightly in order to compete.

caps, cables, bodies but no clips is what I was told and they said they will beat anyone's price.

Clips come with the mics, as do the foam windshields.

do Sennheiser mics truly compete with the high end mics out there, for the same gear, such as Schoeps and DPA which are also in the 2000 to 3000 dollar range, that is surprising to me since I had always considered Sennheiser mid range gear at best

Yes - I would say that the symmetrical capsule MKH series are, in fact, better than the DPA and Schoeps.

Sennheiser, Neumann, DPA and Schoeps are probably about equal but their designers all come from different directions.

The Sennheiser MKH are very clear and neutral mics with a better bass response than other small diaphragm condensers.  They are RF condensers with a lower IM distortion than all other mics (because of the symmetrical capsule design) and are pretty well immune to moisture problems (due to RF principal).  Ultra quiet as well.

The Schoeps are AF condensers, I tend to find them a tad "hard", but this is part of their character.  They tend to be a bit lacking in the bass end - slightly hidden by the fact that Shoeps measure frequency response closer than other manufacturers.

The DPA are AF electret condensers, very, good though.

The Neuman are AF condensers, but the Neumann philosophy is that a microphone is like a musical instrument with character.

All my smalll diaphragm condensers are Sennheiser MKH (and I'm just about to order a stereo pair each of the 8020s and 8040s), though I do have a couple of the Neumann digital KM-D series.  DPA I may consider, but do prefer the low distortion and neutrality of the MKH series.  I don't think I would use a Schoeps.

I hope this helps.

Sennheiser more neutral/transparent than DPA's?  I find DPA to be the most transparent microphone line of all, but that is just my own experience, nevertheless thanks for the info regarding Sennheiser mics, with the interchangeable caps this is a fine new option for us tapers who prefer uncolored and transparent microphones

Unquestionably yes.  I personally would choose a Sennheiser MKH series mic over ANY Schoeps or Neumann.

Just out of curiosity, what Sennheiser products are you referring to when you make the association with "mid-range" gear?  I'm genuinely curious.

sennheiser has been making great microphones for years.....especially dynamics.  md421 and md409 come to mind right off the bat.

for voice overs, it's pretty hard to beat the 416 shotgun. the proximity effect brings the voice so upfront and clear, many eng's are choosing this route over the standard LD's like a u87.

original mke's are also fantastic.  i'm really excited to hear these new condensers in action!
