Both probes are straight-beam dual-transducer probes, frequency 4 MHz.
Both probes have roof angles of 0.

The difference is the size of transducers and, of course, of housings:

SEB 4 0:
Rectangular transducers, size 6 mm x 20 mm,
focus at 25 mm steel,
recommended working range: 10 mm to 400 mm steel.

MSEB 4 0 (minature):
Rectangular transducers, size 3.5 mm x 10 mm,
focus at 18 mm steel,
Recommended working range: 5 mm to 70 mm steel.

The probes are designed for different working ranges.

Tight cracks will not reflect ultrasonic waves, they are acoustically transparent.
Maybe tip-diffraction will give a (weak) ultrasonic signal from a tight crack.
