I just want something a little more pro quality that's all
And what do you hope to achieve by that-except make you "feel" better?

Unless you are doing lab type measurements (the field is NOT one of those situations)-a "better" mic is not going to get you anywhere-useful that is.

Now if your current mic is broken-that is a different story.

I'm going to agree with Mac and Ivan. The Rational mics are completely perfect for in the field use and you will never worry about it falling off the mic stand or leaving it out in the cold or heat. If it breaks just buy another and don't feel bad about it. Perfect mics for the job.

Thanks guys so rational it is. I will keep and add to my kit.  Is it work paying the extra to get the calibration file.

You must have a calibration file.  A generic one for the mic model is the minimum, a mic specific one is much better.

I use Beyer MM-1 mics and they are sprayed fluorescent yellow!

The MM-1 comes with a unique calibration so any differences between mics can be adjusted for within smaart by using the calibration curves.
