Excellent for the price...
10.06.2016
The sound quality and low self-noise are excellent considering the relatively low price of this microphone capsule. Initially, I used the mic in a Rycote lyre pistol grip and, being an omni, there was no handling noise at all.

I tested the ME62 alongside my ME66 just to compare the level of self-noise: the difference was barely detectable (perhaps the ME66 was a tiny fraction quieter).

I plan to use this mic in a Teliga parabolic set up, to record bird vocalisations (a popular combination, particularly in the US). But the Telinga hasn't arrived yet... I do plan to upgrade (when finances allow) to a Sennheiser MKH 20 or 8020 or Schoeps CM MK2...

micro ideal in stereo pair use (prefer AB configuration).

Used with the K6 power handle (48 volt Phantom power supply or 1.5 volt AA battery), it delivers an extremely detailed, clear and deep sound throughout the spectrum, always very precise, even by moving the sound source away, unlike others micro. This makes it perfect for recording classical chamber music ensembles, orchestras, choir (I used it a lot in these conditions).

The battery power, very convincing and delivering performance largely equivalent to those obtained in traditional phantom power supply, allows a light use in the field (excellent results obtained in use with my zoom H2) delivering professional results in interview, sound atmosphere, recording of events and concert, video recording.
Possibility in this type of use to use XLR cables, even long, avoiding the interference of capture, without loss of audible signal.

The construction is very solid (I have been using ME64 for years without worries), the noise is extremely low, the output level is very high, and the pressure is high, which means that sound is taken closer to high sound sources without distortion or proximity effect. Provide a flexible suspension (type: THE T.BONE SSM6) to isolate the body of the microphone, very sensitive to handling noise, including mounting on feet to avoid any parasitic vibration).

In short, a safe value and quite unique in its category, which has been recommended to me by many professionals of sound recording. I use ME64 (cardioides) for years very satisfactorily. The ME62 (omni) are the ideal solution for use in taking stereo sound in all situations (video, concerts, sound recording)
