Thinking about it, the Black and Teal are voiced sort of like the ADK Vienna and Hamburg as well except added switch functionality.
...I think you're on to something...the cheaper CM-1 mics have three-way high-pass and pad switches (like the Odin and Thor)...almost like similar features have been swapped between models...

...but the Teal CM-1 with the C12 capsule is much more subdued on the top-end than the Vienna, which is a "brighter" mic...people looking for "big, smooth and warm" characteristics in an inexpensive mic would do well to look into these...hopefully there will be others posting their thoughts on these...

...if you go to the 3U website, there are both higher-quality FET versions and some tube versions with classic designations (GZ67 Tube and GZ67 FET for example)...similar to the Z-Mod line?:
3U Audio Microphones,Condenser Microphones

...have seen all the quotes about the Z-Mod capsules being designed by an "unnamed aerospace engineer in Australia"? (the guy behind these mics is a physicist based in Sidney...coincidence?...
