Ha ha yeah...GREAT POST!!
Very well put...the whole lot of it
They do sound sonically in the same ball park as the Neumanns...I heard that straight way, I have been amazed how many people get hung up on the details...all mics in that test sounded very similiar to my ears.
Now put a Chinese capsule mic in there, and you will hear it...or you need to make an appointment with your doctor and have ear wax removed!

if that changes then yeah sure i would tell anyone that asks they are great.
I agree on the cosmetics thing on Bens mics too!!...they look a bit generic,
I've always said appearance is a really BIG thing!!
So with a nice shell they could be such an incredible package!!
I think Ben is right onto this tho, but maybe doesn't want to push the price up too much. Still the Chinese make some amazing looking shells (they are good at that part of it LOL!!)

with or without a set of specs attached - that is the hard part
Yes this is the main point that "audio ergo sum" made that I agree with.
But I have heard a few Jades and James now and they did sound the same...but I didn't really scrutinize them heavily.
As far as staying that way...I hope they do..I love mine!!
Last time I listened they sounded great too...so heres hoping!

Exactly...everyone markets on the internet and through forums etc...
By some of these people saying "Just Don't market on the Internet...and The whole shootout is a fraud..etc...etc..
All this makes me very suspicious.."Who are these people?"
Starts to have the feeling of a "witch hunt" to me

especially if the guy attacking is talking about "playing with the big boys"
hiding your real name it is a sure sign of ...
Exactly...you are eager to challenge Ben...you know who he is!!
Now be kind enough to say who you are...other than an avatar!

...we find out during this one that the Wagner U47w that sounded like crap, really wasn't a proper U47w at all. Again, that has been cleared up to everyone's satisfaction, it appears, but it caused bad feelings, without question.

His access to the rest of the forum was suspended pending an important correction that needed to be made in the description list of mics in the shoot-out

do we have any contract on gearslutz that says you have to do a shootout in any special way before posting?

HELL, NO!!!
Well... listing the mic's in the shoot-out correctly would be most helpful. Or not?

just so we are really clear I AM THE GUY WHO TOLD EVERYBODY THAT THE WAGNER MIC USED WAS NOT A U47W AND THEREFORE CAUSED ALL THIS CRAP..

...sure ben could have done this whole thing a bit better , i think he understands that
let it go ..
Yeah time to let it go..
