I can not speak to the reliability or humidity or temp response of
Rhode mic. But for signal to noise it beats the mkh line.

I had never heard a system where I set the headphone level at the
actual outdoor level in a very quiet place and hear no mic noise at
all.  Then kick up the volume more and have the mics still hold

I like the mkh line but with them taking the gold out I really am not
sure that we are still getting what we pay for.
