We purchased these for our studio about 4 years ago for right around $450 for a stereo pair from Sweetwater.
These mics have a wide and accurate frequency response and much like the KM184's, can be used all around the studio - from drum overheads, to acoustic guitar. This stereo pair also comes with windshields and mic clips - which I think are more sturdy than the ones that come with KM 184's.
This is not so much a con but something to consider; These mics definitely have a small bit of coloration that some people love and others don't. Make sure the try these out before you buy them!
These are tough little mics and claim to handle over 130 SPL, although I've never tested them at this level. They come with a great protective case and the mic clips are a very thick and sturdy plastic.
Bottom Line? These mics are incredible for home studios and a great back up pair for commercial use. At 1/4 the price of a stereo pair of Neumann KM 184's it is definitely the best value for the price.
