Hey! Yeah, i bought the Events recently and they wont let you get away with a bad mix! i am actually starting to enjoy the opals more than the neumanns. There´s just some kind of openness in the high mids that's fantastic, and they go really low as well! I find the 310´s a bit aggressive sometimes.. But with that said they are living i separate rooms and i have never done an A/B between them. Both are fantastic monitors! could't be happier!
