Well, for one thing, they are one of the coolest speakers around because I make them.
Other than that, there really is no night and day difference. They are a "bookshelf" sized speaker meant to perform similar to larger, floor standing type speakers. They do this by having an active, high displacement subwoofer driver and ample power, to compensate for the much lower enclosure volume.
The design is also sealed, with a slower less steep roll off than a ported speaker. The active amplification further modifies the response to compensate for typical room gain reinforcement, while also allowing output control, so that they can be placed either near to boundaries (like a room corner) and not sound boomy, or well out into the room and not sound thin. The controlled directional point source nature of the mid/treble means that reflections in every direction of the polar field will have "carbon copy" type spectral origins, which tends to reduce the variability of the SQ room to room, again allowing placement relatively close to boundaries without severe adverse effects.
Most (all?) users tend to not have any form of room "treatments" (which I again reiterate, is not something to be shunned by audiophiles or studiophiles), yet still seem to enjoy the spatial reproduction, so they might be appealing in that sense. Or not.
