I dunno. Maybe a damaged element? Audix's quality control is good, but maybe a bad one got through, or the thing got dropped on the concrete one too many times, or something.

There's no question that my Fireball is the loudest mic I own, and that's pretty much the story for the other folks I know who have one. You might want to send yours back to the factory for a look-see. Or even just take it to the nearest full service musical instrument store and A-B it with another one to see if yours sounds the same.
