Positive surprise!
Nota Bene Records, 15.03.2019
I ordered this mic as for simple curiosity, to record authentic latin-american instruments from Bolivia and Peru. Ayllu group plays authentic music from Ands..and what surprise this was. Full collection of instruments from bass drum (bombo) all the way to highly pitched kenas and charango this microphone covered without any issue whatsoever! Stereo definition from this ORTF setup was clearly presenteded with realistic and clear stereo image with very low self-noise.Sound is much more controlled - no over-brightness (in comparison with all popular Rode NT's).
Small remark goes to bass, namely the "deepness" of bass freq. but for this price something that can easily be forgiven...Manufactured in metal housing, very solid made, with included clip/holder.Be smart and order additional Y-type cable 'cause included cable in package is to short if you intend to use this microphone on higher positions.

Conclusion: buy now, this is excellent addition to your collection of microphones that can give you great results for studio and live recordings.

Very good mic for stereo recording!
FunkyM, 13.01.2018
Use
For drum overhead maily. Also suitable for percussion, acoustic guitar. Very good results in studio as well as live recording.

Clarity
This mic gives very realistic and clear stereo image (ORTF system).
The capsules very good matchedand low noice level. Self noise if very low. Comparing to other SDC - this pair is winner in rpice/prefomance and stereo image.

Pros:
Very good stereo mic for this price, no competitors can beat it.
Quality of Superlux is alvays on top. No any issues during 9 month of usage in studio. Personal advice: to buy additional 6 meter long Y-type cable.

Cons:
Y-type cable included in package is very short. But it is not problem - you can get 6 meter long Superlux cable here, at thomann.

A real "find"
bertiebassett, 25.11.2017
Bought a couple of these. Sound is balanced and clean, and an easy setup: instant ORTF. Comes in a plastic case with a clip/holder (nothing sophisticated, but functional), a couple of foam windshields & a breakout cable (a single 5 pin to two standard XLRs). I'm using these as part of a surround recording setup and I'm planning two more to add "height". There are definitely better, more expensive mics available, but these are punching well above their weight for the price.
