I have used many different gauge strings from many different manufacturers and I often wondered how the likes of Elixir can charge up to twenty euro for one set of strings, but I have to say that these Daddario EXP16's are definitely towards the lower end of the quality scale for me. I would choose to pay higher prices for Elixir strings in future because they last much longer and the tone is much better. I found the EXP16's to be quite dull and lack tone after only a few days of serious playing. I would choose the competitively priced Martin or Martin SP strings over these if you are not willing to pay for Elixir quality. I have often left Martin SP on my guitar for up to 6 weeks whereas I felt I was changing these Daddario's every 2 weeks which, unless you're a full-time gigging musician, is ridiculous.
Do you believe this rating to be inaccurate or unacceptable for some reason?

I find these strings very good. They are long lasting with a good balanced tone. They are also very strong. What i mean by this is they don't break easily. I've used them for a good while now and i would recommend them
