How did you start out with it?
What gear are you using?
When do you use it?

How would you suggest someone new to the technique could have a go at it- will any two omni's work or would you recommend a particular approach?
I saw a photo in a catalog of the Sennheiser version that interested me. I made my own using two Sony ECM 50's taped onto headphones but quickly changed to putting the mics in my ears, capsule facing inwards. The mic's frequency response is crap like this but imagery seemed good to me. A little post EQ and they sound great.
Eventually was able to buy the Neuman KU100.
Always my drum OH. Piano, strings, various room sounds.
Still use my ECM50's in the field and to do panning effects for a mix.
Set up a speaker, send instrument to speaker, sit in front of or behind speaker with Bino mic kit on head and shake your noggin. Wild stuff ensues. Can leave original signal in the mix for crazy phase cancellations.
