MXL 770 VS MXL V67G that is also a drop right now?
770 = schoeps-style transformerless circuit, surface-mount implementation (which basically can't be modified), and a small-diaphragm capsule that tends to have a scoop at 7-9kHz and a boost at 13-16kHz. It has 2 switches, one for pad and one for HPF.
V67G = 2001 = U87-ish front end coupled to emitter follower and questionable 2:1 transformer, plus 32mm K67 LDC capsule. In practice, the negative feedback cribbed from the U87 circuit is not very effective, applying only about 0.2dB of corrective EQ @ 10kHz and 1.5dB @ 15kHz.
Both tend to be fine starter mics; for a ~$70 entry price, they're hard to criticize. I wouldn't pretend they'll give a premium mic any competition though.
