it will never perform the same as a legit k870/87/67 unless it was manufactured by Neumann.

Not sure what "a higher quality chinese capsule" really means, but it's a counterfeit item if it's a Neumann Mic with an undisclosed aftermarket capsule that was not a direct replacement from neumann. full stop.

you can get a mic with a decent chinese capsule for a few hundred bucks.. but in no way does that make it worth what you would charge for a u87.
