Pros: You can hear EVERYTHING!!!
Cons: The high end. WTF!!!
To be short, sweet and to the point, after lurking for some time and running pass to great reviews of a potential giant killer I couldn't resist. Plus with my SE-115s going out I needed something new so I took the plunge. So this is the neutral sound everyone was raving about. I simply love it! Besides to terribly miss-handled highs (seriously what on earth were they thinking) these thing show quite the detail. I have to rediscover my music. Oddly enough though I found the odd high end to help for some recordings, however it's easy to see how these could become fatiguing for some listeners, and that's not even to mention the clamping force. I can deal withe the highs but the clamping is what gives me head aches.
All in all, they are totally worth it.
