The 40mm drivers - exceptionally large for a behind-the-heads headset - deliver amazing audio quality, and the high-sensitivity, noise-cancelling cardioid microphone provides clear voice communication.
Further differences include the way in which mics pick up sound: directional mics (also known as cardioids) pick up sound from a particular direction, while omni-directional mics will pick it up equally from all directions.
In addition, the rear-generated hall reverberation is evenly spaced between the speakers, which is what makes the Blumlein arrangement superior to exactly coincident cardioids. When using the latter the hall reverb has a tendency to bunch in the center.
The most significant items, after the recording environment itself, will of course be the microphones (in this case, B&K 4012 cardioids and 4003 omnis) and their positioning, which in this recording had them arranged in a configuration that reminds me of what John Eargle has done scads of times in his work for Delos.
