 sbd willy8862A-in comparison on stella blue, sbd 8862 is a little more suppressed than 17421 but that is much harsher with more hiss and a buzz and less pleasant to kisten to; so could choose either but if choose 8862 still need 17421 for missing song; sbds 34638 and 35036 are built on 17421 with ame sound; mtx 122408 is more echoey than the sbds; auds are less full and less upfront than sbd with 1329 9less full and more distant than 107792 ***
