They were all placed in the same positions, therefore recording different performances. I figured accurate placement was way more important to this kind of shootout than identical performances. But the performances were still pretty darn consistent.

I figured it's more of a real-world approach. If you're in a session and you think you might want to try different overheads, you throw them up and decide if it's better or worse than before.

It's not the most scientific test ever done, but all these mics sound different enough that slight performance differences really shouldn't matter much.
