    I know the E version of the 451 mic doesn't have the roll off switch.
    But apart from this, do they sound exactly the same or is there any difference?
    Both using the CK1 capsule.

    They sound pretty close. However many othe EB series did not have an XLR connector but a Tuchel connector. You should know before purchase which. Also, with any older mic if they have not been taken care of he capsule can be shot. The advantage of course to a modular mic is it easy to change. If the body itself neecs work, in the US Richard Land is the man for repair.
