Sound-wise... the sound is SUPER colored, heavy bass response and almost nothing else. Unless you're a basshead I'd stay away from these if you want anything close to a neutral or crisp sound.
Um, I don't want to be a killjoy, but when was anything from Klipsch not obviously colored? I used to sell Klipsch in the 80's (sound pretty similar today), and I like them perfectly well, for some kinds of music, but I wouldn't use them if I was expecting linear sound.
If you like their sound, great. If you don't, buy something more linear. (Same goes for JBL, Bose, Polk, and to a lesser degree Infinity and Yamaha, BTW.)
If you prefer something more linear, there's always Grado, Sennheiser, Audio-Technica, Martin Logan and Denon. And any British speaker manufacturer.
I'm supposed to buy something? But we're having so much fun with things as they are, I don't want to ruin it!
