I have 2 VRs...matched at one point a long time ago.
They are quite good in the absolute sense. Although they don't sound like real c12 most of the time. Then again, every once and awhile a certain voice will sound great on one of them.
A bit overpriced, probably. But I got mine ar rep cost when they were having a special on matched pairs. So I can't complain.
They have a lot of great uses, although I will be the first to admit that they are not a sure shot first choice vocal mic.
The internal construction can be iffy. We've had to do some wiring inside this pair. Not undoable though.
All in all, a nice addition to the locker. As to the chinese stuff, at the price super, at four times, still ok. Most of the time they work fine. Elegant, no. Crap, no.
