Some toughts from a none audiophile, about Xcape after 55-60 hours of burn in and 3 hours of listening:
Housings and strain reliefs look solid, cables are slighly sturdier than mc5, but on par with them for microphonics.
They're warmer than mc5 and slightly colder than Silver Bullet, not as spacious as them but separation between instruments is pretty good and gives some feeling of space. Bass are well controlled especially in quantity, vocals are fine, a little forward compared to mc5, but not as much as with SB, trebles are slightly better than mc5.
What is annoying me is sometimes Xcape seem to loose control, it can be some cymbals which ends with hissing or a piano that should be forward during few seconds and stay behind.
