would rather have the Neumann KU 100 but it's too much $. If you know
what mic is "inside" the KU100 maybe I could afford that. The AT
3032's I use in my present "head" are great but too long to be "end to
end" in the ears. I could e mail a pic & MP3 if you have time to
listen. I rented the battery powered version of the COS11 and was able
to test them in 100% humidity for 2 days. No failure of any kind!
Nothing "good" to record though. Thank you for your time...Chris
