I'm not surprised. The V1.5 is exceptionally good...

I second that! They are unbelievable effortless, tangible, dynamic sounding and without coloration.

Bart, do you detect any difference in timbre between your V1W, C1 and G2?

Vivid Audio has the same sound throughout its models.
The more you climb up the ladder, the more refined they are, but my rears sound amazingly clear too.
