Great clear sound. I use them for drum overheads and an xy mic for acoustic recording.
I purchased a pair from a different seller a couple years ago, at first I was happy with them as my mic selection was pretty small. After using these and using much, MUCH, more expensive mics (over 10-20x the price) I have to say, the sound on these is pretty nasty. They have a massive spike at like 7k and they make pretty much everything sound cheensy and harsh. For drum overheads, they really make the cymbals washy, bright but without transient detail. I have squeezed some pretty decent acoustic guitar sounds out of them, but they have become my back seat "demo" mics that I toss up when all my good mics are being used for more important sources. Really, save your money and get a proper set of SDC mics for a bit more.
I picked up a pair of these mics for a specific purpose, and for that purpose they have served me well.
Eighteen months ago I found myself in a situation where I needed to capture a handbell choir for a live concert. There were roughly a dozen members and the frequencies that they span are wide. The physical space also accounted for roughly 25 feet -just to set the stage. Budget was tight. Timing was tight. The 840's were a bit of a shot in the dark but I had to do what was necessary. With very little work on the eq I was able to get great detail and nuance from just these two mics. I have no doubt other options could have done better, but I have been so pleased with their performance (as have the people writing the check) I haven't needed upgrade. They see frequent weekly use and have never hinted at a problem.
If you need something for a live situation and can control the environment a bit -and you know your way around your gear- you shouldn't overlook...
