Line Audio OM1 vs DPA 4060

I am new to Gearslutz, but have done many searches. I have bought the Line Audio OM1 to try and get a purist sound. I was discouraged to hear a comparison between the OM1 and the DPA 4060 recording a train leaving a station. The DPA sounded so natural, spooky natural, with car horns in the background that fooled my ears. The OM1 sounded muffled by comparison (which could be a good thing when smoothing out amateur violinists. I have also looked at the AT BP 4025 which seems natural sounding but lower noise than the DPA. Anyone else faced this delima.
