<<The matched pair of NT1A's did come with a certificate showing each  
mics' frequency response. When I ordered these I believe there was
a $100 surcharge for the matched set.>>

OK that would indicate they're going to some real effort to select  
very closely matched pairs. The response curves may indicate the  
window for selection, or may have sufficient resolution to determine  
Rode's criteria.

<<Again, how closely matched they are and what falls in the realm of  
"close enough" is something I don't have an answer for.>>

I don't know about Rode, but some manufacturers feel that + or - 1db  
at a number of different frequencies is a very good match. Since any  
individual's hearing may be rather unmatched between left & right  
ears, not to mention that any given set of stereo speakers or  
headphones may also be pretty unmatched, I'm not sure how important  
it is to get much more critical than that.
