I would have been surprise that a 350$ capsule didn't give you this kind of U47 magic... Definitely not for everyone's budgetSo I finally got to try the heiserman hk47. Wow…wonderful capsule. Although not an exact Neumann clone it has that neumanesque 3D image that I don’t hear in other k47 clones. A little more tamed in the mids but beautiful sounding and smooth with a very nice but not shrill presence.
i need to do further testing but I believe that the synergy of hk47 and ef800 can bring you a lot closer to the k47/vf14 combo than k47 and ef800. I have a feeling that ef800 doesn’t have the sparkle of the vf14 so the hk47 with the touch of extra air works better.
