I've been using these as my no-comment go-to for drum overheads. Compared to other microphones I've tested they are the most pleasant when it comes to capturing overhead.
I'm currently using them in a spaced setup balanced full R-L Stereo. They provide a very warm sound and it generally tones cymbals down a little bit. The sound is a little "creamier" with these two compared to a small diaphragm pair (Rode NT-5 MP) -- the small diaphragms are a bit more pingy and metal-sounding.
I usually keep my preamp gain at around 10/11 o'clock with these while suspended half a meter above the cymbals and it pours a really powerful signal through -- the gain on these microphones is very good.
The price for these feels like a bargain as they yield very good results sonically and you get a case, spider suspensions, wind shields, stand adapters and regular holders. The carrying case itself is pretty neat and feels well-built and sturdy.
It's a very good alternative to it's bigger brother C414 and for half the price you get a very close quality and sound profile. The C414 are indeed a little bit better but for general purpose recording applications you are in a very good spot with a pair of C214s.
TL;DR -- If you are looking for a pair of large diaphragm mikes that feel and sound premium but are on a budget -- this is the BEST option.
