A lot of people have very different ideas about what good sound is. What is scratchy to one is clear to the other. What is warm to one is dull to the other.

The Aston LDC mics are firmly in the "flattering" camp. They're not designed to be accurate. You wouldn't want to use them for orchestral recording maybe, but you can certainly make pro recordings with them.

You either like the sound or you don't.

But "scratchy" is not a good description of either of the mics.
