No experience but I would expect something between a FFWD and a DTswiss in terms of quality.
Miche is an old company that produces high quality stuff and the guys at Ursus seem rather serious. I would trust both.

Ursus IMHO is way better quality in entry level and mid-range wheels.

I managed to get an older, but perfect condition Ursus Hybrida for 70usd.. these are built with sapim cx-ray spokes, the hubs have skf-bearings and they are very loud (freewheeling)

put many campag wheels to shame with their beehive like sound.

comfortable (due to the thin spokes and shallow rims) yet rigid enough (high spoke count)

ursus hubs are just.. better..
