He's all the way in California right now, than Seattle, than Washington, than he is going over to Canada for a month. I won't have those things back for at least the next six months and I am not even expecting to get them back than. Did you try emailing them like I suggested?
I actually decided that the 385s weren't on the same level as what you were describing the Corecools as. I would put them at $80 range, no higher. They have great (read:amazing) 3D imagining and the bass was killer, but the mids remained recessed a bit and the highs mellowed out quite the last time I listened to them. So they sounded balanced but mellow if that makes any sense. Worth the $30 bucks, yes, but definitely not the warmth you described with the V2s. They had more of a dryer sound to them but I would have loved to test your vent modification on them.
I only make this comparison now that I have my VSD1 which are quite balanced with a small bass hump. If you want something to audition I would suggest you grab the VSD1.
