I agree. The point was not to bash the capsule, it is a good one. Cardioid C is a great mic. But a 300-400$ one. The selection part is pure bs. I actualy think Treelady believes in what he's saying. It could even be that Manley fell for the "sellection" bs. It could even be true that capsules go through some sort of QC and get graded. In the end it's still a 30$ capsule. And i'm being generous regarding the price.I wo
Tbh i would see it the other way around. They are not fools they like the aound but they dont know that it can be had for MUCH cheaper and maybe cant believe it.
I would say that A LOT of people think chinese capsules are shit and you just cant have good sound for less than a couple thousands. I know many of those people..
