I actually have a little infograph to show this off. Here:   Left is series 3, right is series 1. No matter what you do, do not buy a series 3. They sound disgusting. There is no clear outer distinction between series 1 and 2 drivers. You have to get lucky.

Very engaging and pleasant. Tapping my foot to 'em right now! The Studio cannot compare, and "janky" would be a good word for how they sound -- perhaps more similarities between the two than meets the eye. I...
