I had the same feeling listening to that.

A fellow N8 owner here. It's a monster of a microphone!!!

PS. Now you need an N22 or better yet... a pair I have some nice condenser mics that cost more than double what these mics sell for. The N8 and N22 are my favorites.

Very interesting. I’m deciding between R84 and N8. I use them for classical recordings, solo spot, small ensembles, etc. N8 is active and I think your comment just made me leaning to the N8. Thanks a lot!

Has anyone compared (or had experience using) the N8 and Samar VL37? They're at a similar price point and form factor.

My guess would be that the VL37 has a more extended high end, and would be more suitable as a main pair. I've heard N8s as a main pair on orchestra and ensemble, and they have a lovely sound; they just need a fair amount of high end boost IMO. On flute, I'd imagine they'd be just the ticket.
