I've heard them and was not impressed. Though they are designed by the same guy, the Soliloquys sound a lot better. I have Soliloquy 6.5s and could not detect any family resemblance between the c800i and the 6.5. The c800i was very boxy, dull, and boomy sounding. All of the Sols I've ever heard tend to have a warm sound but they are never boxy - actually they are quite open sounding and create a large soundstage. For about the same money as the c800i's you can get a used set of Soliloquy 5.3s that sound really nice.
