I own this stereo pair. I use them as overheads for drums, but mostly find myself using it in the studio for the neck mic on an acoustic guitar or hi-hat. I've used this mostly in applications that don't really require a stereo set, but it's nice to know if I do, L and R with be linear in terms stereo frequency response between themselves.
They have an air about them that works well with the AKG 414 XLS.
They come with a stereo bar inside the case, which is great as that it something you may forget when you really need one.
