Wow, excellent review Paul, you really got to the heart of the sound. I agree almost completely with perhaps a few minor "interpretation" differences. You have inspired me to try a review, but I have so much writing to do with school that I'm not sure I can. I also e-mailed XTZ and suggested the same thing, except I suggested they move to a bigger driver as well (45-50mm). Awesome review, I'm about to start playing mine now! Thanks for suggesting these to me, one of my better purchases in audio when I think about value to cost.
