More comfortable than headphones, but similar definition. Audiophile standard treble and mid-band is so accurate; it is difficult to believe a well recorded vocalist/string instrument is not actually in the room. Precise and gradually attenuated bass - without booms or vibrations.
Louder and clearer given the same input, meaning less load on the amplifier and less corresponding distortions. Essential for Valve /pure A-class amplifier owners and audiophiles.
As the sound only comes from one place (not enclosure sides, ports or any other drivers), this loudspeaker works well in any room position.
