I've written a few other reviews. Mine tend to go on the long side, but, strings being strings, I'll try to keep this quick.
These things are good. 4.5/5 star good. When I walked into my local store (back in August), I had no idea what strings to go for. Only, having done a significant amount of personal research to get myself knowledgeable about guitars, that this acoustic I'm using was the steel stringed variety, and was promptly pointed towards these by an extremely helpful staff member whose name I cannot remember. I do not regret spending a few extra dollars (compared to other brands) as these things sound fantastic. I no longer have an excuse not to keep (attempting to) teach myself guitar.

I am using these on a Taylor 314CE - they sound much better than the Elixir strings that Taylor use (but I understand the need for coated strings on a new instrument hanging in a store, being played by many customers). Nicely balanced sound, intonation is very good. Taylors tend to be pretty bright sounding, so these strings help to mellow out the acoustic tone. The light guage strikes a good balance bewteen playability in standard tuning, while still being taut enough to use open tunings. They last a long time for me, so are a great value. Good strings for the working pro, consistent from set to set - D'Addario's quality control is probably the best in the biz.
