I think the U87ai sounds fine, in the right context.

But it has a certain sound engineered into it's design. If you are willing to compensate for that sound, the mic can be considered versatile. Many users are willing to approach the situation that way too. And so, like the SM57, it's a widely accepted microphone. Though by no means is it right for all, or in my case, even most circumstances.

I love talking about gear. But I truly hate mythologizing it.
