    • Is £8.43 on the river at the mo.
    • The AN/J's do sound different from the Snell J's, I have tried a few different pairs and currently about to try out some AN/J's copper wired versions. Previously I ended up with the famous Bourney AN/J's but had them silver retired and felt there was improvements in terms of refinement and clarity without sounding thin as some believe silver wire does.  I may be up for comparing them at a bake off or something depending upon time but it will be interesting to compare the variations.
