Creating a lot of expectations on a new product is a dual-edged blade, we all know that. The second edge cuts sharply this time. Kbear Believe are not bad at all, just not up to the hype that was pumped about them.
A3000 is a superb natural-clear proposition in the market of classical / jazz / unplugged specialized drivers. Final is once again showing off their embarassing mastery in delivering stunning quality at budget prices.
All my priorities for cool jazz are covered: significant bilateral extention; elevated, fast, textured, detailed bass; airy, sparkly trebles. Ikko OH10 ticks all the boxes, and does it masterfully too.
