Cracking little mic. Nice compact which is nice for getting into awkward spaces like snare with a tight pattern for smooth off axis response keeping unwanted (like hi-hat spill) sound out.
Good for live stuff too - I just hang it off a mic cord over guitar cabinets, this was designed for very close miking situations after all - keeps unnecessary stands out of the way.
Not many features as such apart from the eq filter, goes from slightly scooped around the 4 kHz region through neutral to a wide boost. Each exhibit a very smooth mid range character that I've come to love from sennheiser without as much as the upper mid boost that something like an sm57 has, so can be used to contrast or compliment.
Build quality seems solid, had this for a while now and has been bashed about a bit and there's not as much as a scratch.
