I have tried the ECC803S in my MA when I first bought it (used.) I did a quick comparison between the original JJ's it came with, the standard JJ replacements and the 803S using the same settings on the same song just adjusting the calibration pots to match output using pink noise.

In my non-mastering studio in a well treated, um, room (OK it's a barn) on a pair of Dynaudio BM6a's with a BM9s sub, I found the 803s, compared to the standard ECC83-S to be a bit more harsh on the top and less detailed in the mids. The fresh ECC83-S sounded great compared to the set that arrived in the unit (age unknown). Both sets of 803s and 83s were balanced and matched.
