i was stuck between the hexes, kodas, and hd's....... listened to all three sets and this is what i found out...

for me, i thought the kodas and hd's had an edge on the hexes in midbass response. the mids in the kodas were extremely attacking (in a good way) compared to the hd's and hexes. the hd's werent that far behind though. of the three, the hd's had the best tweet (for my preferences) laid back and smooth. i feel the hexes tweet is better for someone who wants something a little brighter, but not harsh. the kodas tweet was a little more laid back than the hd's. some people may want a little more umph out of that tweet. so i guess its all up to preference. i was decided on the kodas but i am buying the hd's just for the upstage option. still have the ef's. u cant lose w/any of them though. so here is how i rank them in a scale of 1-5:
midbass: kodas-5 hd's-4.5 hex-4 midrange: kodas-3.9 hd's- 4 hex-4
tweets: kodas-4 hd's-5 hex- 4
