I cant speak for the PC/PB 12+...but in terms of overall improvement the SE did not disappoint. I know Jim Wilson(aka Jman) after doing a supplemental review of the xs15se thought it was a step up from the original XS15. From my own personal "SE" listening sessions, I was able to clearly discern certain captions sounding more refined with no overhang.... these attributes set the ultra apart from the Non SE version based on my recollection.
