I've seen that singer on Instagram many times. The looper she is using is a pretty cool.

During the blind test, I preferred a mic for every source (except for the close spoken) and I was pretty sure it was the real U47. It seemed obviously to me, but then I looked at the answers and... Yes, it was the Warm Audio one.
The entire test has a big problem: the U47 simply sounds a different mic. Not better, not worse, just different. This is because of the M7 capsule. I think an M7 vs 3 K47 capsules test is not much honest, seriously. The K47 is way flat, the M7 brilliant and clear. While I was listening, the U47 seemed a 251 replica to me. A crazy-detailed high-end, so pretty awesome, but I'm not expecting that from a K47 mic!
Anyway, as the most open I really enjoyed the U47 on close spoken voice, but the WA blew me away, I'ma think over it!!
