Mine just arrived in today's mail. Mike from Freq City mailed his orders on Wednesday, so I imagine quite a few should be showing up today. Initial out of the box impressions: seriously tight and low bass, I definitely hear bass elements I am not used to hearing this distinctly or fully. Tight, not muddy or colored. Mids seem quite lush, pleasantly forward, but not aggressive, highs clear, no sibilance. There might be a bit of a lower mid-emphasis due to the powerful bass, but I have to see how this sounds over time. The whole presentation is very balanced, no grain to the sound, very smooth, the bass strength will take getting used to for me, but it is both tight and deep, something I am not used to hearing to this degree. Later today between football games I will try to do a bit of a comparison between these and UM2s, TF 10s, E 500s and SA 6's.
