    Afer some research, I think i'm going to demo these 2 mics out, ADK vienna and hamburg.

    I was wondering if any one has any real world exeriences using any or even better both of these mics.

    By the way, i just demo'd a SE2200a and a rode nt2-a. The SE2200 was really nice on vocals. I have a Rode k2, its always been kinda blah on pop vocals, I got the same impression from the NT2-a minus the lowend body of the K2. The SE2200 was very nice for vocals but I want to check out these ADK mics first before buying anything.

    Here's the deal. You may or may not like either of them on your voice. You should LOVE them on most other sources, including, acoustic guitar, overheads, percussion, brass and bass amps.

    Vocals are very subjective and you're doing the right thing by demoing.

    They are voiced a bit differently than most other Chinese capsuled mics. It gives them both a distinct tonality.

    All-in-all, a very useful set of mics.

    I've heard many vocalists said "I will only sing or record with such and such mike" so what I suggest is that if you think you will use them and if you have a good budget and like how they sound, kept them.
    Just a thought.
