I had some 50Me II's and was pleased with them. Relatively speaking they are dynamic and transparent. I used Marigo dots on the cones and dynamic bands on the basket arms, which elevated their performance, more weight and articulation. I don't know if they are inherently bright, but it is an issue I had from time to time. I think they are definitely an excellent speaker to build a system around. I have since moved to a high efficiency horn system that retails for 4 times the price of the N.E.A.R.'s, whick I love dearly, hence the relative aspect regarding my comments. I feel there is a lot to like with the N.E.A.R.'s. The bass is exceptional, especially with the Marigo bands. I agree with the reviewer that states they are nicely balanced.
