When I hear an M49 what I notice is the "effortlessness" of the mic. Early Norah Jones records, Blind Boys of Alabama... the mic just gets out of the way. All other mics seem slightly constrained by comparison.

I'm a fan of the M149 but I think all these mic manufacturers should quit using "classic mic" numbers to name their mics. It just creates too much potential for disappointment.
