Sorry I'm only interested in XB800/900 personally seeing how the XB600 has a V/U-shape FR. :)

I'm possibly excited *if* it sounds better than my XB500, which I don't like all that much.  frown.gif

+1 but I think I might pick them up just because I really like the look of them.

Midrange is more recessed than XB500.  Highs have more sparkle and bass is kinda boomy, but not in a good way.  I am burning it in right now so I hope the sound improves.

I do like the design though... maybe a driver swap is the way to go here.

The swivel apart bugs me.  Flops all over the place.
