If I have difficulty hearing significant differences, the mics 
usually meet my personal criteria. I'll use test tones and make 
sonograms if I detect something suspicious when testing by ear. 
Maybe the next thing to do, Steve, is to take them into the high 
humidity field conditions to see if they both are resistant to 
moisture. Dan reporting using a shower; maybe he can describe how he 
did this.
