I have used this mic for 6 months, about 6 months ago before I moved, mainly to record rap performances, and vocals to song parodies, but also a little acoustic guitar. All I can say is that the CK-7 does a good job, especially given the price. Vocals sounded dry and controlled (have not trying record without using the sE Reflection Filter), and with few EQ adjustments, I got nice and detailed results. I really don't think there is another studio mic out there that can give same professional results for a price beneath 300 $.
The design and build quality is also noticeable. And I almost forgot to mention the 5 years warranty. There is no good reason not to buy this.
The first thing you notice when receiving these mics is the build quality. You get a metal case and when you open that a wooden case holds the mic and beside the wooden case is an area for the spider mount. The mics are multi-pattern and offer selective switches on the housing.
So I'll cut to the chase.....these mics sound very good. I recently used them to record a classical cello performance. The two mics into a Focusrite Octopre straight to disc. The recording was very life like Ive also used them on a choir recording with very good results. For the money and the fact you get a 5 year warranty it's a great deal. Good enough to prompt buying another pair.
