Uncanny with voices and strings. Excellent with Jazz and classical. Bass doesn't extend much below 45Hz, but what is there is taught and well balanced. I'd have to consider them the most "neutral" speaker I've heard - the whole spectrum is well behaved. Their resolution is far greater than the Harbeth M30s and C7s, a real sleeper among British monitors. The only reason I don't use them now is they're a bit too clinical (maybe better to say "too accurate") for my tastes, but they should be great for monitoring.
