The original reason i bought one of these was to see if this more expensive mic would out perform my ME2 that came with my Sennheiser mics. It did and came with a few other surprises...
Firstly the extra thin and very strong Kevlar cable. Wow it's thin and feels like it will last! Also it doesn't make any noise when rubbing against clothes. Unlike the ME2 that makes a scratching noise into the mics against certain clothes!
Secondly the mic head and clip are so small it makes it almost invisible on the TV. It's a shame they don't make the MKE1 in white for the EW anymore as i would've definitely bought a few of these for white shirts.
This is my 3rd purchase of the MKE1, so if that doesn't say how good it is, not sure what will.
