That's odd, when did Plantronics enter the picture? Last I heard, Sparkomatic bought Altec and formed Altec Lansing Technologies...I've been out of the loop. I've also got to ask, with multiple drivers you run into the problems of wave cancellation which is why high-end home speakers tend to avoid multiple tweeters (it's not as big of a problem with lower frequencies such as the midrange and midbass). I'm just wondering if you noticed any sort of dropouts in the upper registers that could be found by moving your head? I've often wondered about that with speakers that use multiple tiny could be that the upper registers are rolled off in certain drivers too so that is avoided.

Anyways, nice read, I hope to see more from you but how about a bit of dissection for the audio geeks among us?
