I have just started playing with a Shure SM-33 for my vocals. I gave a blind listening test to some co-workers. I had an Audix OM-3 into a Mackie VLZ (with reverb) on song one. The same song with different arrangement had the SM-33 into an HV-3.

The OM-3 was mistaken for the ribbon mic. It had a softer, lush sound. Yes everyone was surprised! The SM-33 was a bit brighter and came across much in a clearer way. It was very interesting.
