I own these. Style is ok if you like the '60s. They go into sleep mode after 20 minutes of non-use, so you need to tap on the volume dial to make them come back up (or wait a few seconds for them to do it on their own, which sometimes they don't do) — blame it on the Report from Iron Mountain.
The sound signature is dark, which is what seems to be trendy these days. Volume needs to be around 6 or 7 (out of 10) for the sound to really come alive. Mids and Highs are somewhat recessed compared to the bass.
Personally I much prefer a sound signature that is more open and midrange-oriented, with lush vocals and presence.
I purchased them because I love my Polk Audio LSi speakers (7s, 9s, and 15s). I've heard what they're capable of when paired with a nice Yamaha A-S1000 stereo amp.
But these Hampdens don't do it for me.
I think I'll go back to my little Satechi computer speakers. http://amzn.to/1FvaJ9o
