The use of professional broadcasting and recording microphones is totally 
ridiculous overkill for ham radio application. On the air, these mics are 
indistinguishable from much cheaper units, if everything's adjusted properly. A 
ham who spends more than $75 on a mic because he feels he needs to to sound 
good is misinformed.
However, one factor at play here may be the pride of sitting behind a big name 
mic as you transmit. I'm not going to take that away from any ham who wants 
that experience. Just don't claim that it makes you *sound* any better. It 
doesn't.
