4 out of 5 eggsAwesome Sound

Pros: Excellent directional sound, stereo imaging, clarity, and bass response.

Cons: Rubberband mounts are fragile. Kit comes with spares - needed them within a week of use.

Other Thoughts: Trip to Europe - run and gun intense usage caused rubber mounts to break. Otherwise, construction is solid. Sound is worth living with the shortcomings. Could use a factory dead cat option.
