Custom Design Signature 402
Choice of looks, but the Signature 402s are too much of a mixed bag to suit the average listenerWrite your own review
- Decent bass depth, wide soundstage
- Poor construction, sharp vocals, lack of detail in low frequencies
If you take interior décor seriously, note the number of materials and finishes available for the Signature 402s.
Despite this, they feel meanly constructed, and their sound can't make good on the promises their looks suggest. The midrange - especially vocals - can be sharp, and the low frequencies are prone to thickening. That bass extends well, though, and the 402s serve up a wide, well-drawn soundstage.
There's no shortage of attack or dynamism, either, but these are too idiosyncratic for a wholehearted recommendation.
