Beyerdynamic M201 N(c) versus Sm57 on guitar cab

Hi - I bought an M201 off eBay and I'm worried that it is faulty as it appears to be a lot brighter than a 57 and have less bottom end - here's some clips - does anyone that has this mic have any thoughts?

The clips below were recorded with a 57 and a 201 in the same location on the speaker - do they correspond to others experience of this mic?

Cheers!

Where are you locating them on the speaker? The 57 exhibits a pretty strong proximity effect (i.e. if you're right up against a cabinet you'll get a bass boost).

Sounds broken to my ears. The M201 is hypercardioid so should have an even stronger proximity effect than the SM57.
