I own the blue Lola and love them, I think people overlook them due to the goofy appearance.
That being said, I can't justify these. The reviews are good, not great, and I question the built in amp at this price (and wonder how much it contributes to the price). Like has also been said, balanced is where it's at.
Until I see someone compare these to mrspeakers aeon, I think these are a bit too quirky for me.
