Both have excellent sound response and quality.
on October 26, 2008
We're using in a church worship service, one for picking up spoken voice and one for picking up an acoustic guitar and variously also our children's choir.
Both microphones work excellently, have nice clear noise-free sound, pick up even children's voices quite nicely without having to overdrive the sound system, and appear to be fairly solidly built.
My only disappointment with them is the AT2020 side-address condenser - I thought that it work as a mic from either side, but it is unidirectional. There was nothing in the advertising telling me that it should work from both sides, it was just an assumption I made, which assumption comes from the fact that I know very little about microphones. Perhaps it's a known fact that "side-address" means one side only, I don't know.
I don't offer that as a complaint, only as a helpful guide in case someone else who doesn't know much about microphones is wondering how it works.
As I said, sound-quality-wise, these are both wonderful, and we're getting another set for the church.
