These are by far the best ic's I have tried in my system. I can't say enough good things, completely resolving of instruments and space while maintaining a relaxed presentation without any edge, maybe a signature of some sort? If so I can live with it. The bass is defined in space and articulate, not like many silver cables I have listened to that seem to attenuate these frequencies. The highs are extended and natural. I did a direct comparison with the Stealth Indra's and preferred the Stereovox by a large margin YMMV but in my system it was unanimous.
