They'll sound great with really wide receivers. Or like you said, like they're in a barrel with a lot of RF going in places your 2.8kHz filter is not letting them through. And when I'm on the radio, I'm open about that wide or less. Never more. It's wasted energy and really bad for DXing, but again, does sound great if you're wide enough for it. Bob Heil's page has great info on how to adjust mics for punch to get the important part of the audio spectrum emphasized and the rest pushed back so the watts going out are conveying useful information. I sound funny with the settings for a PR-4 microphone to me, but everybody else thinks the audio is great and I can be not just heard, but understood all around the globe.

You are so correct. I have attended several talks given by Bob Heil regarding the useful audio spectrum that we should use in our transmitters. He admits that any energy below 400 Hz is just energy lost. I have set my K3s to attenuate the first three segments of the TX EQ as much a possible.
