Buyed mainly for music listening.
Clear natural sounds especially saxophone and woodwind. Very fast drums but weak bass. Can listen long time - no irritation. Good for low volume listening. All genres has same emotionality so it means that AFC is flat without significal resonances. Sounds as is. Its not hi-fi - no tasty resonances.
MP3 sounds hard. Clipping in recordings not emotional as on hi-fi, its just terrible hard clipping.
Highly recommend for listening using subwoofer (my way Fostex pm-submini2) there is significant dimension and atmosphere addition.
Pair of this one with subwoofer is cheaper than pair of Shape 50 but theoretically has more precision and deep bass and more clear middles (3-way and 3-amp).
Very good sound quality for this price but be aware there is no level regulator as in shape 50 and shape 65.
And not sensitive standby mode needs to turn up volume for make them wake up after sleep. On low levels they goes to standby. Whereas Fostex PM-sub do it very well automatically but has standby switch that useful.

Ngr Studio, 29.05.2019
Despite the dimension, these speakers provide for a deep bass. The lacking frequencies reside in the low mid band. High mids are good and tweeters have a nice spread. The imaging is neat, strong center but not so great sense of dimension, it's a bit difficult to catch the ambience behind sounds. Eq works pretty well but it lacks a center detent. Solid construction and nice look. Auto off function is always on but it's dead silent and not an issue. They require a good break in period, my pair began to sound better after 10-12 hours of continuous work at moderate volume level.
