I think it sounds flatter and more natural than both the M88 (similar but less refined, a bit more brash) and the M69 (which sounds like it's got a huge upper midrange bump).
It may have been a bad batch ... I've one of the new ones and it sounds fine, tried it on guitar cabs and no harshness, works as it should, great mic.
