Can you hear the transformer in some of these mics?

I've posted a link to seven mics, all recording the same acoustic guitar into the same mic pre/converter chain.

Which mics have a transformer? I guarantee you at least one of them does.
If you want to listen, you'll have to PM me for the link. I also won't post the answers here, but I will provide you with all the answers once you've guessed (and believe me, it's a guess).

Also, your answers won't be shared with anyone else. Here's the way I see it -- if I can't tell if a mic has a transformer just by listening to it, then why should you be able to?

"Where are the repair people in this country? Where have they gone? Currently, the state of microphone service availability in the US is an unmitigated disaster, especially in light of the fact that there has never been a boom in the history of recording mics like this."
