Thanks so much for that link Donald!  I read the relevant posts on
gearslutz, your noise sample sounds the same as mine.

This is what my noise sounds like:

Obviously the problem extends further than the 8060s and 8070s, if it
also affects my 8020s.

I am using Sound Devices 702 recorder, in dry and calm conditions, so
not a wind problem Scott, but thanks for your response.

Mike, I am going to try a different recorder in a few days, just to
verify it is not the recorder.  Then I will return the mics yet again.

The Sennheiser people in Sydney told me there were 'no known issues'
with these mics, obviously they were poorly informed.

I emailed Sennheiser in Germany about my first noisy set of mics, a
month ago, and sent them a sound sample, but I never had a reply.

Sennheiser replaced one set of mics ('faulty capsule' they said) but
the noise persists in the replacement mics despite me checking
absolutely everything by way of leads and phantom power voltage and
connectors etc. etc.>>
