...how different they sound in any particular comparison is going to be very dependent on the specific source being recorded and it's sonic character...certain sources with frequency response heavily weighted in the 1.5K-20K range should sound distinct from one another...just look at the response charts for those two mics (below)...it's essentially like comparing a U87 to a 251...they may both sound good on a particular source, but be different in how they represent it in sonic terms...
