Runs about $1,100, sounds fantastic on most sources, plus it has the "fat" switch to give a thicker sound when desired, so you basically get two $1,000 mics for only $1,000. The 195 also has tons of proximity effect, giving you even more versitility.
Perhaps but judging the quality of a mic by the price tag is surely not sound advice either
