Hi all,
        I love to make recordings with 2 Rode NT1A connected to a SD 722; 
this way I make ambient recordings with very low hiss. I had the 
opportunity to use, with the same recorder, a Sennheiser MKH 70 whose 
specs indicate a self-noise comparable to the Rode mics but with 
higher sensitivity.hus I expected to get noise free recordings as 
well; instead my recordings were hissy, much noisier than those made 
with the Rodes, with the hiss increasing above 8 kHz. Nonetheless the 
sensitivity and directionality were higher, I was very disappointed 
by the hiss and now I would ask to this community if somebody else 
has experience with these mics. Before this experience I was willing 
to buy one of them, but now I need to understand more.
