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 too, because once I hear the Sennheisers I will never look back

Fixed that for you

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.

I'm always curious how people can be so sure about the sound of gear without hearing it.  Or maybe you've heard them pre-release, or are you referring to the new line of mics, and not necessarily the as-yet-unreleased actives?  Inquiring minds want to know...  :)

while maybe not the most scientific way to test mics, i know mics well enough from using them day in and day out in my line of work to know what sounds good to me, even in a pair of headphones just hearing my voice.

this gear looks very similar in size and style to Neumann km140's, really similar

Nothing like them at all - totally different both inside and out.

they are smaller than 140's.
infact, they look, to me, anyway, more like schoeps cmc5/6's than anything.

but who cares what they look like....it's all about how they sound.

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

And so do I, as well as a pair each of MKH 20, 30 ad 40.  8)

Wrong - they are out there now.

Sennheiser are delivering the MKH 8020, 8030 and 8040 in both mono and stereo kits now.

Some of the extension cables and extension tubes will be a few weeks later, but the mics are available now.

nice! i've got some vintage 441's, 421's, 431's, and 816 shotguns.
i also have some of the newer "e" series stuff, which isn't nearly as nice as the older mics.
