hello, don't really have much to say... nice impact from percussion, (the opening of "Head Like A Hole" hit HARD.) played a list of my favorite girl singers, if a female vocal is up front in the mix, these are just fine. however, there are some male vocals in indie pop that are a bit hushed (looking at you, Mr. Gibbard) that are sometimes difficult for me to follow. with heart-wrenching lyrics, this becomes fairly important. not my cup of meat, as any transducers i have need to play nice with multiple genres. exquisitely made (as i have found all the CFA higher tiered products to be.) not sure the price is justified, due to not working with all the stuff i listen to. cheers!
