    Nice review… Balanced armature drivers is new to my ears, especially from SteelSeries. Guess they’re stepping into Logitech’s shoes. Are there like two armatures in each? One for lows and the other for mids & highs, or how is it exactly?

    And I have always wondered… how effective are armatures as compared to transducers & diaphragm drivers?

    I think it’s single balanced armature. Personally not really a fan of this setup. Dynamic drivers always tend to have a wider sound stage and are better in the bass department.
