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

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.

member Svenkid used to tape with the ME60/80 series mics, and frankly I have heard one of his recordings with them into a V3 that sounds phenomenal, but I recall seeing this particular model sold here for under a grand which if my memory is correct I would put into the mid range category with my 480's, as well as 460's and 184/185's

sennheiser makes the best wireless systems out there.
i still use old 431 wired handhelds all the time. they sound better than 58's.

similar, except in sonic characteristics.  In that realm, they far and exceed the 140's.  And rank as well if not better than schoeps cmc5/6 mk series, and the dpa 40xx, and just about everything else.  The MKH series Sennheisers are some of the cream of the crop.  I, personally, on paying jobs, would pick these out of the aforementioned mics anyday.  I lust after this mkh mic especially

in what ways do the Senns "far and exceed" the 140's sonically? In what ways do they "rank as well if not better than schoeps"? Just curious for details. I wasn't aware that anyone had actually heard these mics yet.

I think he's referring to the other mics in the MKH series, not specifically these new ones.

Yeah I saw that thing the other day when I was surfing their site. It looks bad ass. As far as the MKH actives, I might have to sell my 460 ck63 and my PMD 660. Have a pair of matched 414's that I will never sell, which means that I would be halfway there. Could whore myself out to some local cougars for the difference.  ;D

I believe Ian White on this board has a pair of the MKH800.

ahh, I see!

thanks

have any of you all listened to the Milabs? While we're talking about high quality active setups that fall outside the "norm" for tapers I thought I'd ask. What I have heard of the Milabs has greatly impressed me.

Tim, yes, as Dirk said, i was referring to the already in production mkh series mics. 

I'm betting (and if rockpunk's review of listening to them in a demonstration is any indicator) that these actives will be just as much of a winner.

The Milabs also intrigue me.  I'm hoping to score a pair in the next 6 months or so.  We'll see how finances manage between now and then.

i've heard and owned many many mics in my years, and i can tell you that this new sennheiser line is the cream of the crop, for sure.
no question they rank up there with the cmc6/41 or km140's (both of which i own(ed)).
i was told by my distributor that this line wont be out til the first of the year.
