in search of...

Neumann KM184 Miniature Microphone
Can't afford a vintage neumann km84?  there are several aternatives with huge differences in price.  the two that keep coming up are: Rode NT5 vs. Neumann km184.  ok obviously we're trying to get as close as possible to the original km84 sound.  prices for pairs:  Rode $400, Neumann $1600.  Everyone always complain about the brightness of the KM184 and the lack of detail on the NT5.  I actually would prefer the NT5 I think they are slightly closer to the km84 and they are 1/4 of the cost!  If i need "detail" I'll use the mojave MA100.  This will have to work until I can afford to buy a pair of km84s.
