Ordered yesterday - received today! All this in spite of Amazon changing the shipping times on three occasions in the space of a day. Bizarre.

So far I've found them very bright (painfully so) and lacking in bass. The devil is in the fitting though, so I'll persevere.

I wonder how much these will change with burn in?

Damn, I can't order those! Amazone only ships inide the UK, they won't ship the Klipsch to the Netherlands.

Could a UK member order two and sent them forward to me?? I will pay in front with Paypal

I hope so - they definitely need smoothing out. I'm not overly worried about the bass. My Denon C751 fulfills all my bass needs.

At this price, I am very tempted.

How do the Custom-1's compare with the Denon C551?

Blaizefm, by bright, do you mean Grado style? I currently have a pair of SR80s which I really like, but obviously not practical for every day use/on bus etc.

If it lasts another week or two I'll be able to get them, but I seriously doubt it.

The thing is, you'd probably make a profit on them too if you re-sell them after a month.
