I've been thinking about trading in a few of my SM57's to get a nice condenser mic, but I can't really find any online reviews about the EH-C5, a nice looking condenser from my favorite company. I was wondering if anyone has ever tried it out, or used it extensively, and can get me some more info on it. Thanks.

I didnt even know they made mics. Their rarity is probably why you're not finding reviews.

"Really nice looking" is probably a pretty bad feature in a microphone. A Neumann U87 costs $3,000 and looks just like a $100 microphone. If you're looking for something in particular, or for a particular purpose, we can probably point you to a better known mic in the same price range.

Well, I guess I am just looking for the best quality condenser mic I can get for $300 dollars or less. I know this is an opinion, but I could use some ideas. Electro Harmonix has not let me down yet, so I figured I would look at their products first.
