“Whether your average person will be able to hear that far is a different story, but it seemed the extra range allows a little more space in the overall sound signature, making for a top-notch soundstage. Transient sounds, like the quick tap of a snare drum, released faster than many other sets for more authentic percussion. We loved the extreme transparency- almost high contrast in the details, if just a touch warm and bright. Of course, you’re paying for the privilege of those extra drivers and the impressive feat of making the tiny package work so smoothly together”
