Two AD200Pro - different color temperatures (also Fresnel vs bare bulb)

Today I used AD200Pro first with Fresnel and then with bare bulb and they give me quite different color temperatures. It was easily visible on camera LCD, so I checked with Passport. I checked also second AD200Pro and V860II for comparison. I've got following results. All test shots at 1/2 power, through the same translucent umbrella.

AD200 #1:

Fresnel: 5200K

Bare bulb: 5800K

AD200 #2:

Fresnel: 5500K

Bare bulb: 5800K

V860II (Fresnel): 5600K

Are such differences normal? Godox claims 5600K +- 200K so at least the first Fresnel head is out of spec. (http://www.godox.com/EN/Products_Witstro_Pocket_Flash_AD200Pro.html)

In single light setup this is not a problem, but is this all right when using light sources with such differences in color temperature together?
