You are the only one saying that it's brittle,btw, nobody else. I said it's a great mic but i just dont like the high-end of that mic and it sounds different than the original U87.

The U87Ai I have and have had were all bought new.

If some of your vintage U87's have sounded dull it's probably because they were not working correctly anymore.

Have you ever actually compared them side by side?
