u87 vs Blue The Bottle

I read that The Bottle destroys the u87. The Bottle is more stylish and attractive, but does it really sound better then the U87? plus The bottle is way more expensive.

blue bottle w/ b6 capsule is more of a brighter type mic but still full. use it with a neve clone (great river, bae, etc) and you will have that "finished sound". u87 is one of those mics that stand up in the mix takes to eq very well.

If you want to be in price range of u87 but want that modern mic sound grab the Manley Ref C which is about $600 cheaper than a new u87. Pair it with a neve clone pre and it's wonderful for vocals.
