I have the Epos Elan 10 (upgrade version of the Epic line) and can advise that they're very musical. Mostly classical music here, and they're perfectly suited for that. Epos is known to outperform the competition at the same price point.
The Epos Epic 2 has a new and improved soft dome tweeter. I thought it sounded extremely bright compared to my M16 Epos. Yes, it's not as expensive as the M16 but it was noticeably inferior. I can't believe the rave in Stereophile.
