I bought a pair of used NT5s after hearing the demo tracks for this capsule upgrade.

I haven\'t had a chance to record any music yet, but a simple experiment with finger snaps was pretty illuminating. I set a stock NT5 and one with Michael Joly\'s capsule up as close together as possible and recorded them both on different tracks simultaneously, then played them back, muting one, then the other, then removing headphones.

This instantly confirmed for me several points Michael made about his design brief: the up-front placement of the diaphragm, the single layer metal screen both in front and around the edge near the front. The stock recording sounds like it was recorded in an oil can. There is a reverberence that buries the actual finger snaps! The upgraded capsule has none of that resonance and resolves even the friction of fingerprint on fingerprint in addition to the actual snap.

Listening live and the Joly-upgraded capsule VERY strongly resemble each other.
