Lives for gear

Have them lent to you from the dealer to take to your studio. Listen to them in your space. A very familiar space.

The most you can get at a dealer's space is if you like the "character" of the sound produced to narrow down your selection for what to take to listen in your studio. Decay, stereo image, frequency response, etc are very dependent on your actual studio room and positioning. What you hear at the dealer's space is not reflective of what you'll get once you own them. If you've already narrowed down to 2 pair, you need to start listening at home. (Not to mention, comparing to your current setup)

Any respectable dealer should loan them out. If not, contact the manufacturer.
