I've used a pair of the SE Electronics SE4 for recording in a home studio and was definitely happy with the sounds that I was able to get from them. I only used them for two applications during recording - one being for recording drum overheads and the other was for recording an acoustic guitar. I found that they worked great for getting a stereo spread of both applications, but they excelled better as drum overheads. As would probably be the case for all small diaphragms, I found that they didn't pick up enough low end and low mids of the acoustic guitar. I usually will use a small diaphragm in tandem with a large diaphragm for recording acoustic guitar, but thought that this would be cool to try with these mics. Even though I didn't get the exact sound that I was after, I would bet that just having one of them in tandem with another microphone to pick up more of the low end would definitely be a good combination. As drum overheads, the SE4s did an awesome job of getting a wide sound. Although they don't sound as great as a pair of Neumann KM184s, they will cost you a lot less and still have a very acceptable sound. If you are home studio owner looking for a very reasonably priced set of small diaphragm condenser microphones, definitely look into trying or buying the SE Electronics SE4 Stereo Pair.
