Very little quality decline over time
Jimey 03.09.2017
Fair warning, I love D'addario. Everytime I try new brands of strings I regret it and end up coming back to these guys.

The 12-53 Phosphors are no exception. Here is what makes them great:

Sound: A little more mellow than your regular 80/20 which means the first hour or so of play already sounds great and you aren't battling the horrible trebly sounds you sometimes get on fresh strings. These strings punch and have so much low end!

Longevity: If the first hour already sounds great be prepared for very little change in sound over time. I don't know what magic they wound into this set but the sound consistency is ridiculous.

I really don't have any cons for these strings. When I play a lot (unlike at the moment) and am therefore not using ultra-light strings (such as at the moment....) for my poor wee fingers (feign pity here), I come back to these time and time again.

great tone

these strings do last a good time and deliver a well balanced sound they can be almost piano like sounding when delicately fingerpicking and can really belt out when strummed great allrounders.

OK. Not sure they are worth it.

Not bad. And quite expensive. Gibson Masterbilt seem better to my ear. Harley Benton Valuestrings seem just as good too, and cost over five times less!

Daddario - cant go wrong
Hairy toes 19.08.2019
over the last few years, ive started only buying Daddario strings. they are the best for durability and they last a long time. im not one of those people that changes their strings very often, so i want my strings to last a long time and take a good beating and these do it for me.
